Schurr Knocks Out Keppel, 42-0

  • By Johnny Artiga
MONTEBELLO - 10/29/10 - If there were ever a first half beat down on display, the Schurr High School football team was on the giving end of it Friday against visiting Mark Keppel High, lighting it up, 42-0 in a CIF Southern Section Almont League game.

The Spartans dominated every aspect of the game, totaling 318 rushing, against 83 of the Aztecs and 66 yards in the air against 21 for the Aztecs.

The Spartans came out a little jittery in the first series of the game, allowing Keppel to complete two first downs and committing two off side penalties.

However, the Spartans kept their composure. As Keppel threatened to score, Spartan defensive back Brandon Chavez intercepted a pass that was intended for Walter Ortiz of Keppel, and from there on out the Spartans were off and running, literally.

On their first offensive series the Spartans began with a 26-yard run from Abraham Gonzalez, who later capped off the drive with a 38-yard touchdown run.

The Spartans improved their record to 5-3 overall and to 3-0 in league play, continuing their dominance over Almont League teams. As for the Aztecs, they continued to struggle as they dropped to 0-8 overall and to 0-3 in league play.

Next week, the Spartans will be hosting their cross-town rival Montebello High, which is always considered one of the biggest games of the season.

Schurr coach Ben Negrete, an alum of Montebello High, had this to say about next week's matchup.

"In a sense, it's a little more special, but I've been away from Montebello for a long time, so I pretty much consider myself a Spartan," he said.

Bragging rights are on the line which should make for an interesting matchup.

Game time is at 7 p.m. on Nov. 5 at Schurr High School.
