Hoping to end their season strong, the JV gridders will be playing the Alhambra Moors Nov.2 home.
The Spartans faced the Bell Gardens lancers in a home game, but scores were unavailable at press time. They had a bye on Oct. 19
“We don’t blame our coaches, we blame ourselves. Of course we feel down when we lose, but when we come back, we come back ready to fix our mistakes and ready to get back out there,” said Noe Zarco, junior running back
The Spartans were defeated by their rivals the Montebello Oilers, 35-20, Oct. 12. They had two more byes on Oct. 5 and Sept. 28
“When we come back, we just pick up from where we left off. We look back on what we messed up on and work from there,” said head coach Ryan Castro
The Freshmen gridders will face the Moors in an away game on Nov. 3.
The forsh played the Lancers away yesterday but scores were unavailable at press time. They were defeated by the San Gabriel Matadors, Oct. 19 at home.
“We don’t let anything bother us. We have another day to go back out there and work harder. We do what our coaches asks of us to the best of our ability and what our position demands of us,” said Jonathan Acosta, freshmen center.
The team was victorious against the Oilers on Oct. 12, 40-6, home. They were also victorious against the Mark Keppel Aztecs, 46-6, home.
“The team we face are made up of the same 14 year olds, they run through the same drill and play just as hard. The only thing that sets us apart from them is the jersey they wear,” said Offensive Coach Carlos Peserezo
