Panther Fregoso Runs All Over South El Monte

  • By David Armenta
ROSEMEAD - 11/5/10 - The Rosemead High football team ran past South El Monte High in its 34-0 victory Friday night in a CIF Southern Section Mission Valley league game.

The Panthers (6-3 overall, 3-1 in league) jumped on the back of their senior running back Matt Fregoso as he rushed for 171 yards and two scores in the game.

"The guy is one of the best players around the guy does a great job running for us and plays defense for us and returns kicks and punts and he is good old style running back who runs hard and finds the holes," Rosemead coach Matt Koffler said.

The Panthers started the game off strong on their first drive with a 12-yard touchdown run by Fregoso to take a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.

The play of the game came on the Panthers' first possession in the second quarter when senior quarterback Matt Macias connected with junior receiver Christian Garcia for a 81-yard touchdown and extended the lead, 21-0.

The Eagles (1-8, 0-4) just could not get anything started on offense as they were held to just 68 yards for the game. The line of the Panthers was very strong the entire night.

"The line played great tonight and they were very dominant," Koffler said.

The Panther victory sets up a fight for second place in Mission Valley League when they face visiting El Monte next Friday.

"Execution we kind of messed up in the special teams and dropped a few balls here and there, but will polish those things up before El Monte comes in," Koffler said.

The Eagles will play for pride next Friday when they take on Gabrielino, which are both winless in league play.
