Moors End Season With Loss At BG

  • By David Armenta
BELL GARDENS - 11/12/10 - The Bell Gardens High offense was hitting on all cylinders as it rolled over Alhambra in a 52-20 victory Friday night in the CIF Southern Section Almont League finale.

The highlight of the game for the Lancers came off the field when they found out that they earned a share of the Almont League championship with Schurr, which lost to San Gabriel, 38-21.

"I won league my freshman year, but this is my first one on the varsity level and it is a wonderful feeling and to find out that Schurr lost tonight I just got super excited," Lancer senior quarterback Josh Adame said.

The Lancer quarterback was not just excited about winning a league championship, but he also broke the school single-season record for passing touchdowns with 22 as he passed for five on the night.

"We got a quarterback that can throw it and after being conservative in the first league game we just decided to have him take over," Lancer coach David Ramos said.

The Lancers (7-3 overall, 4-1 in league) came out firing on their first drive when Adame connected with his junior receiver Albert Lara for a 34-yard touchdown pass and a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.

The Moors (4-6, 1-4) tried to make it a game when senior running back Patrick Bruno raced off for a 33-yard touchdown run to cut the lead early, 14-6, in the first quarter.

The passing attack for the Lancers got hot in the second quarter as Adame connected for three scores (15, 18 and 49 yards, respectively) with his senior tight end Scott Williams and took the game out of reach when they went into the half with a 38-6 lead.

The Moors ended the season on a sour note, but coach Lou Torres was optimistic for what is yet to come next season as his team will be returning a group of young players that have a year under them of varsity play.

"The positives for the season is the guys who made plays for us were young guys and now we need to find a way to get as big up front as the other teams in the Almont League and we have the skill players that can match up, but we need to somehow get strong up front," Torres said.

For the Lancers, their season continues and they hope that they can get a home playoff game and will continue to work on the things that can keep their season going.

"We need to get a little bit better on our tackling on defense and our line needs to be better on their blocks and hopefully that can get the running game going a little bit more," Ramos said.
