The Strathmore High School football team took one on the chin Friday, falling 56-14 to visiting Sierra Pacific of Hanford.
“They dominated the whole game,” a disappointed Spartan Coach Jeromy Blackwell said. “They controlled the line of scrimmage.”
Strathmore managed several scoring drives, and junior running back Javier Moreno scored on a 6-yard run for the Spartans, who trailed 21-7 after one quarter.
The Golden Bears dominated throughout, improving to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in the East Sequoia League. Strathmore slipped to 3-4 overall and 0-2 in league play.
Blackwell took the blame for the loss. “I didn’t have them prepared,” he said.
The Spartans will try again Friday when they travel to Corcoran to take on the Panthers, who are 4-3 overall and 1-1 in the ESL.
