The Wasco Tigers came out on Friday night in Arvin looking for a bounce back victory. Arvin was first with the ball and turned it into a drive – but that ended inside the 10-yard line with a fumble recovered by Wasco defense.
Both teams then began to take turns with the ball trying to be the first to strike. Until the Tigers moved down the field and Rodrick Scott punched it in.
After another stop by the defense for the Tigers, the game went into halftime with a score of 7-0. With the start of the second half, the Tigers came out ready to make a statement. On the first drive of the half, the Tigers capitalized. Wasco's quarterback, Jacob Villenueva, threw a 22-yard strike to Andre Cordovain the corner of the end zone, making the score 14-0.
The next drive would stall for Arvin, and the Tigers get the ball again. They once again drove down the field and scored on a 1-yard dive into the endzone by Misyn Lane.
On the next drive for Arvin they come out and try some trickery with a running back pass, but it wouldn't get past Julius Mazano, who came up with an interception of the Tigers. The very next play, Jacob Villenueva threw a dump pass to Rodrick Scott, and he turned on the jets for an 80- yard touchdown reception, bringing the score to 28-0.
On the next drive for Arvin they were driving and once again get inside the redzone. This time there is another fumble recovered by big Chris Garza for the Tigers.
The player of the game goes to quarterback Jacob Villenueva with 175 passing yards, and two touchdown throws. The most outstanding play was by Rodrick Scott for beating defenders down the sideline on his 80 yard touchdown run.
