With the future of the rivalry still a question mark, the Los Altos Football team made sure that everyone at Friday nights game were not confused about who the better team was. The Conquerors dominated all facets of the game en route to a 64-16 thumping of Wilson. Los Altos scored 9 touchdowns, with 6 different Conquerors crossing the goal line.
Once again, Rene Zaldivar led the Conquerors with 3 touchdowns plus he had a kick return called back on a holding penalty. Jonathan Lopez added two second half touchdowns while Zedekiah Rodriguez, Zecheriah Rodriguez, Orellius Visaya, and Fernando Moreno also scored TD’s. Quarterbacks Justin Gaytan and David Castillo each threw touchdown passes.
The Conqueror offense was firing on all cylinders and the defense was equally as impressive. The Conqs gave up two scores on long touchdown passes in which the Wilson receiver got behind the defense. Aside from those two moments, the defense was stout. The Conquerors pressured the Wildcat quarterback all night forcing him to throw on the run nearly every time he dropped back. When it came to running the ball, the defense clogged up any brief openings that the Wildcat runners had.
The Conquerors have been impressive thus far but face a good test this week in Monrovia who is also 2-0. Monrovia has defeated Don Lugo and Alta Loma in its first two contests and will definitely be ready to battle. Kickoff is at 7pm on Friday night as Los Altos hosts Monrovia in Pat Mauch Stadium.
