Vintage 57, Bellarmine Prep 15
The Crushers racked up five interceptions, two by Mo Schaumkel – who returned them for 99- and 30-yard touchdowns – and one each by Noah Tanpoco, Jose Rodarte and Bryce Powers on Friday night at San Jose City College.
Rebounding from a 43-12 loss to Acalanes, Vintage (3-1) also rushed for almost 400 yards and six touchdowns – two each by Tytan Bradley and Schaumkel and one apiece by Justin Ray and Jaycob Gualberto. Landon Leal added a 30-yard field goal.
“The team bounced back nicely by having a good week of practice,” Vintage head coach Kyle Schuh said. “Coach (Josh) DeGarmo and his defensive staff did a great job with the defense and correcting errors from the week before. Offensively, Coach (Andrew) Downing and Coach (Conrad) Alvarez had the run game back on track.”
The Crushers are off next Friday night before opening Vine Valley Athletic League play against Casa Grande in their homecoming game.
“Looking forward to the bye week to recoup physically and mentally for league play,” Schuh added.
