Vincent Memorial 56, Southwest (SD) 0
EL CENTRO — The Vincent Memorial High football team stayed perfect on the season with a 56-0 trouncing of Southwest High of San Diego at Southwest High here Friday.
“It was an easy game for us, they turned the ball over a lot which made it easy for us to score but other than that our offense was clicking with no problems and our defense played tremendously,” Scots’ head coach David Wong said.
Vincent Memorial quarterback Hector Robinson had a strong game throwing three touchdowns and running for another.
The Scots defense remained stout and opportunistic as they recorded a safety and had a fumble recovery in the end zone for a touchdown.
“We have a great defensive coordinator he loves to study film and create game plans for teams and he gets the kids prepared,” Wong said. “The players do a great job of executing those game plans.”
Vincent Memorial (4-0, 0-0 ML) will host Maranatha Christian at 7 p.m. at Southwest High on Friday.
“I expect a tough game,” Wong said. “They are undefeated like us and are coming off a bye week so they have been preparing for two weeks.”
