There was also a great passing connection between the quarterback, Jacob Villanueva, and Sean Sharp, resulting in another six points for the Tigers.

On the other side of the ball, the Tigers had two big interceptions by Alejandro Prieto and Julius Manzano (#10). These big plays kept the ball in Wasco's possession, which helped them control the ball and continue to be a powerhouse running team.

The players of the game honors were credited to the whole offensive line that helped the offense produce a total of 447


In preliminary contests, Wasco defeated McFarland in both preliminary contests. The freshmen team won on Thursday, 14-0, and the junior varsity took their Friday contest, 48-0.
