Lions Rout Cardinals in League Debuts
Lions Shake Off 2-Week Dust to Rout Lowell
A bye-week followed by Burton’s forfeit a week before, gave Galileo too much rest as its offense looked rusty as evident by passes a step out of reach and a few missed blocking assignments by the offensive line. Though there were numerous offensive miscues, the Lions did not punt once in the game, taking a 22-6 lead in the first half on three possessions. Senior receiver, Jackie Guo got the Lions on the board with a tip-toe 10-yard TD catch from quarterback, Adrian Poot. Junior wideout, Reese Bickart caught his first score of the season in the second half. The other three touchdowns came courtesy of sophomore running back, Yarvell Smith who wowed the crowd when he got bottled up in the backfield but was able to reverse course and sprint down the right sideline to the end zone. Smith also scored on a 50-yard run up the middle.
The defense, just as rusty, didn’t get tougher until Lowell threatened to stroll into the red zone and score. Jimmie Edwards and Antonio McBride made sure the Cardinal backs didn’t leak out through all the trash and explode for any signature Lowell long runs. Lowell’s double wing offense kept shoving the Lions back 3 to 5 yards at a time but it wasn’t able to get into the end zone.
