was opening night, senior night, homecoming all at once, that was nuts and for us to actually come out play pretty well, that was good.”
With over 3,000 spectators on hand, the Cardinals scored the first touchdown on the opening possession as running back J. Huerta scampered 19-yards for a 7-0 lead. From that point on it was all Orosi, who improved to 7-2 and 3-1 in West Sequoia League play. The Panthers fall to 2-7 and winless in league.
Sophomore quarterback Evan Lara had a nice night completing 7 of 16 attempts for 119 yards and a rushing touchdown. Lara and wide receiver Chris Huerta had a scoring TD play in the opening quarter that pushed the lead to 14-0. After a Arciga run in the 2nd quarter that made the score 21-0 heading into the half, Lara opened the second half with an 8-yard keeper that punctuated an eight play, 50-yard drive
with 6 minutes, 34 seconds. The Cardinals had scored a few plays earlier on a run by Huerta but that play was wiped out by a penalty.
Orosi tacked on another score when Lara scrambled from Parlier’s pass rush to find C. Huerta, who broke off his rout to come back for the ball, on a 22-yard TD play and a successful PAT by Mauricio Fausto wrapped up the scoring for the Cardinals. It marked the second week in a row that Lara has found some rhythm with another multi touchdown performance.
“I’m playing a lot better than I was,” Lara said. “It’s my first year playing varsity and I got to keep learning, and just keep getting better.”
J. Huerta had 77 yards on 15 carries and Arciga finished with 51 yards on seven carries.
