Like in the good old days: the electric atmosphere helps Salpointe rout CDO | High schools
“All my life playing football, I took off my glasses and played with everything I could see,” Bourguet said. “Finally, my parents convinced me to have contacts. My mom said to me, “Play with the contacts and see how it goes.” I took off the glasses, put on the lenses and it worked.
Bourguet joined senior wide receiver Michael Aguirre for the first touchdown of the game – and of the season – with a 28-yard strike down the middle.
Bourguet followed with an 8-yard screen pass to receiver Antonio Martinez, who finished the game with five catches for 51 yards and a touchdown.
“They took control of the game. When they got the ball they messed up someone, got extra yards and made me look good, ”said Bourguet.
After a slow start to the third quarter, Bryce Robinson caught a 26-yard pass from Bourguet to take a 35-0 lead for the Lancers. Running back Anthony Wilhite had 78 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
Defensively, Salpointe limited the CDO’s offense to 118 offensive yards, and the Dorados are averaging 2.7 yards per game compared to the Lancers’ 9.7. Salpointe finished the night with 418 yards of total attacking.
“We have worked extremely hard for this moment. … There is still a lot of stuff we need to work on, but the execution was there, ”Rogers said.
