We’re a month into high school football and teams are showing their true colors. It feels like yesterday we were talking about kick off, but the season is once again cruising by.
At this point in the year, teams should have a pretty good idea on how their squad should fair down the stretch, but a team who’s surprising the entire Sacramento Valley is Monterey Trail.
Monterey Trial hung on to their undefeated record tonight against Southern California school Paraclete. The Spirits were no cupcake team either, after winning their region last year.
In the first quarter, the Mustang’s defense read the Spirits well, taking the ball on the fourth. With plays like these, Monterey Trail will have to keep playing at this level if they want to make a real playoff push.
At the half, the Mustangs held off the Spirits at the half with a strong defense, only letting three points on the scoreboard for Paraclete.
Athlete of the Month nominee Zach Larrier did not disappoint either, dodging defenders and taking a 95-yard-run straight to the crib.
After a rough season last year with a 6-5 record, the Mustangs are now 5-0 after tonight and appear to be on track for many more W’s this season.
