EL CENTRO â€” Thanks to the leadership ofÂ 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 foughtÂ for everything they got, earning only a field goal the entire first quarter. It wasnâ€™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.
â€œOur defense kept us in it that first halfÂ and weâ€™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,â€Â Vincent Memorial head coach, DavidÂ 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,Â until quarterback Hector Robinson, started completing his pass attempts.
On two consecutive drives, Robinson threw for a touchdown. One for 63Â yards, and one for 35. Robinson finished the game with 151Â yards passing and two touchdowns earning himself the player of the game for the Scots.
â€œWe started out on our left foot, we didnâ€™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.â€ Robinson said.
Vincent MemorialÂ (3-0, 0-0 ML)Â will travel to playÂ Southwest High of San DiegoÂ next Friday.
