After a sluggish first half, Salpointe was able to open up the field, dropping 23 points on a strong Buena team.
The 37-6 win at Salpointe was not without overcoming obstacles as starting quarterback Treyson Bourguet left the game with an upper-body injury in the middle of the third quarter.
In that second half, Salpointe turned to junior quarterback Dylan Dreis to lead the team down the game’s final stretch.
During that second half, Dries completed nine of his 16 passing attempts for 126 yards and a touchdown pass. Here’s what he had to say after coming into the game for Bourguet:
It wasn’t all through the air for Salpointe as starting running back, David Cordero had himself a productive night with eight carries and for 43 yards. He showed off his receiving skills by catching a 28-yard touchdown pass from Dreis in the second half.
Here’s Cordero talking about the Lancers’ win and his versatility from the backfield:
Even with the offense rolling, that wasn’t the most impressive part about this game. That came from the defensive side of the ball for Salpointe, who’s defense was flying all over the field with five interceptions.
One member of that defense is junior defensive back Antonio Martinez who had an interception and caught a 26-yard touchdown pass in the first half to jump start the Lancer offense. Martinez also blocked a field goal attempt.
Here’s Martinez talking about his team’s win and how difficult it is to play on both sides of the ball.
