The San Luis Obispo High football team won 17-0 at Dos Pueblos on Saturday in a nonleague game.
Nate Greenelsh highlighted the defensive effort by the Tigers (2-0) with a 70-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter. Greenelsh also had 8 rushing yards on three carries and one catch for 24 yards.
“Going into the game we talked about two things: no turnovers and (to) limit penalties,” San Luis Obispo coach David Kelley said. “We didn’t turn the ball over, but we had way too many penalties. We probably had over 100 yards in rushing and a touchdown called back.”
Tigers running back Sawyer Scott scored the game’s only offensive touchdown when he scored from 5 yards with just under six minutes to go in the first half.
Scott led San Luis Obispo with 68 yards on 11 carries.
Quarterback Thomas Orradre was 7 for 15 passing for 114 yards with no interceptions and picked up 27 yards on eight carries. Zack Wilson led the Tigers with 44 yards on three receptions.
San Luis Obispo managed just 258 yards offensively, but did not have a costly turnover like Dos Pueblos (0-2) had.
