Schurr's Offense Takes Apart Moors

  • By David Armenta
ALHAMBRA - 10/22/2010 - A dominating performance by the offense of Schurr High snapped a four-game win streak for Alhambra High, in a 44-13 CIF Almont League victory Friday night.

The Spartan run game was too much for the Moors to handle in the second half as senior running back Abraham Gonzalez answered his coach's call by rushing for 78-yards and one score.

"Whatever the coaches want me to do I'll do, whether that is running or catching the ball I'll do it to 100 percent of my ability," Gonzalez said.

The Spartans scored 28 points in the fourth quarter that pulled the game away against the undermanned Moors.

"We were a bit more physical than them in the second half and we got after them and tired them out," Spartans coach Ben Negrete said.

The Spartans (4-3 overall, 2-0 in league) started the game off with a 49-yard screen from senior quarterback Aaron Cantu to his senior receiver Chris Chiaromonte. That led to a 10-yard strike from Cantu to senior receiver Matthew Contreras for a 6-0 lead in the first quarter.

The Moors (4-3, 1-1) looked strong in the first half as well when they responded with a three-yard touchdown run from senior running back Patrick Bruno and took their only lead, 7-6, in the first quarter.

The Spartans relied on the arm of Cantu who threw a beautiful 30-yard touchdown pass to his senior receiver Alejandro Castro on fourth-and-18 to retake the lead for good, 13-6, in the second quarter.

The Spartans senior kicker Gustavo Tlatebchi connected on a 20-yard field goal in the closing seconds of the first half that extended their lead 16-6.

The Moors came out firing in the second half as sophomore quarterback Joshua Mendoza scored on a 5-yard run to cut the Spartans lead to 16-13, but in the end they just had nothing left in the tank.

"We came out strong in the second half but we just ran out of gas," Moors coach Lou Torres said.

The Moors will now lick their wounds and try and stay in the hunt for a playoff berth as they take on Montebello next Friday at Moor Field.

"Were going to get back to the drawing board and we will have to be (strong) about this game and get back at it next week," Torres said.

The Spartans will take this momentum and continue their quest for another Almont league title as they head on the road and take on Keppel High next Friday.
