Applebee's NC9 Overtime: Upsetting Thursday
(El Paso) — It was an upsetting Thursday night for the schoolboys.
A trio of high school football games saw Eastwood beat Americas 34-28, Jefferson dominated Burges 21-7 and Coronado held true to form blanking Socorro 59-0.
The Troopers fell behind Americas 7-0 but answered with a field goal and then took a 10-3 lead thanks to a touchdown from Alex Vasquez. Eastwood was able to hold off the Trailblazers for the victory.
Meanwhile, Jefferson soared to a 21-0 halftime lead against Burges. The Mustangs got a touchdown from Michael Razor to make it a two score game but Jefferson's Jesus Ortiz interception stopped any Burges momentum on the ensuing drive and helped Jeff score the 14 point victory.
