EL CENTRO — Thanks to the leadership of their senior quarterback and their stout defense, the Vincent Memorial High football team added another mark to the win column as they took down Army-Navy Academy, 22-3, at Southwest High School here last Friday.
With four forced punts, the Scots started off slow in the first half.
The Scots fought for everything they got, earning only a field goal the entire first quarter. It wasn’t until a 50-yard interception return brought the first touchdown to the Scots.
The Scots entered the locker room at halftime with a 10-0 lead, scoring off of only an interception and a fumble recovery that gave them good field position.
“Our defense kept us in it that first half and we’re a much better team than just playing defense only. The second half we came out strong and that is when we started finding our receivers,” Vincent Memorial head coach, David Wong, said after the game.
Army-Navy Academy scored only once, a field goal with eight minutes to go in the third quarter.
The Scots then answered back with a field goal of their own, with the game still up in the air, until quarterback Hector Robinson, started completing his pass attempts.
On two consecutive drives, Robinson threw for a touchdown. One for 63 yards, and one for 35. Robinson finished the game with 151 yards passing and two touchdowns earning himself the player of the game for the Scots.
“We started out on our left foot, we didn’t do anything the first half. We did much better the second half, our line could have done a little more, but we ended up getting the win.” Robinson said.
Vincent Memorial (3-0, 0-0 ML) will travel to play Southwest High of San Diego next Friday.
