Tigers roll in SSL opener, 45-14

The Wasco Tigers football team opened its 2022 SSL campaign in a dominating fashion, with a 45-14 victory over the McFarland Cougars.

The Tigers, led by Coach Chad Martinez, have a very balanced offense, and they used it effectively in the win. In years past, with the Tigers using a Wing T offense, the running game was king.

With this offense, led by quarterback David Manzo and a squad of talented receivers, the team executes a double threat, with Manzo and the passing game, along with the still-powerful running game.

On Friday night, Isaiah Juarez took center stage in the running game with 147 yards and two touchdowns. One of the scores was a 40-yard run worthy of any highlight show, with Juarez making several Cougar defenders miss on his way to the end zone.

Manzo ended the game with 203 yards passing and two scores. Running back Michael Dominguez also had a great game, with 79 yards and two touchdowns.

On Friday night, the Tigers travel to Golden Valley in a non-league contest beginning at 7 p.m.
