San Luis Obispo High’s football team pulled an upset Saturday, opening the season with a 34-21 victory at CIF-Central Section power and defending divisional champion Garces.
The Tigers came out as a different team in the second half, dominating the Rams on both sides of the ball. Garces only had one score in the half, and it was on a kickoff return.
“The boys played extremely hard, they went out there and finished tonight. We still did not play our best, but we had nearly 600 yards of total offense and scored five touchdowns so the sky is the limit. Defensively, we shut them down the second half. They had three first downs in the entire second half,” Tigers coach David Kelley said.
Bullard 56, Paso Robles 30
Never miss a local story.
Bullard controlled a majority of the game and led at halftime, 28-10.
The Bearcats started the third quarter strong, returning the opening kickoff for a 95-yard touchdown and eventually narrowing Bullard’s lead to four points midway through the quarter.
The Knights were able to stop the Bearcats and steal their momentum, running away with it at the end.
