High Scores In Week Seven High School Football
Calaveras High Defeats Summerville 42-0
Written by Levi Flores
After a bye week, the Summerville Bears traveled to Calaveras High School.
After a magnificent kick return by Eliceo Avila, the ball was fumbled and given back to the Reds. They marched down the field and scored. The Bears received the kick and one play in, Nick Veach took the ball up the middle for a short gain. Although he came up limping. Veach’s injury will end his high school football career. He has made the football team a great place for all and will continue to be a great leader from the sidelines. Veach added afterwards, “There’s a lot of football left.”
2 minutes into the game the reds led 14-0. Chase Ryan had multiple punts throughout the game averaging about 35 yards. Josh Caldera also created space and had a few great runs. The Bears defense did not have enough power to defend against Calaveras’ split backfield. In the end, Calaveras beat the Bears 42-0.
Next week the Summerville will face of against the Argonaut Mustangs at Thorsted Field, Home of the Bears.
