First, the good news for Bolsa Grande's football team. The Matadors scored 14 points Thursday, their highest total of the year. Senior quarterback Josh Price threw for 163 yards and a touchdown.
But some things remain the same. The Matadors fell to 0-7 this season and dropped their ninth straight game, as City of Industry Workman ran to a 52-14 victory at Bolsa Grande High.
The Lobos (4-3) netted 505 yards and scored seven touchdowns (and five two-point conversions), all on the ground. Their wing-T offense featured senior wingback Chuck Wallace, who ran for a school-record 323 yards and touchdowns of 24, 14, 10 and 75 yards. Chris Williams added 88 yards and a score; Corey Wright had a 46-yard touchdown run among his 78 yards.
Bolsa Grande came to life offensively after Workman took a 40-0 lead midway through the third quarter. Price directed a 13-play, grind-it-out drive that took nearly eight minutes off the clock and resulted in a six-yard touchdown pass from Price to tight end Alex Navarro. The Matadors recovered a Workman fumble on the ensuing kickoff and needed only two plays to find the end zone again as running back Joey McMahan connected with Vinh Tran on a 21-yard touchdown.
The game was delayed for 20 minutes early in the third quarter after Matador wide receiver Thi Ta injured his neck. Ta was immobilized and transported to Garden Grove Hospital and Medical Center, which would not release information about his condition.
