The Paso Robles High football team fumbled away a chance to take the lead at the goal line late in the fourth quarter of a 21-18 nonleague loss to El Diamante on Friday in Paso Robles.
Paso Robles (2-3) was without starting quarterback Thomas Bernal but was able to take an 18-14 lead in the third quarter on the strength of its defense.
“Our defense played pretty well,” Bearcats coach Rich Schimke said. “We pinned them back and they had a long ways to drive.”
The Bearcats drove down to the El Diamante 1-yard line before a fumble switched possession after rolling out the back of the end zone for a touchback.
Never miss a local story.
“After that, they just ran it out on us,” Schimke said.
