Sage Hill Football Preview

Sage Hill School (1-2) vs. The Bishop’s School (3-0)

When/where: Saturday night, 7 at Sage Hill

Key Lightning: Sr. RB Eric Cheng (252 yards and three TDs on 49 carries); Sr. QB-DB Taylor Petty; Sr. LB Ford Hanour (19 tackles)

Key Knights: Sr. QB Joey Moreno; Sr. RB-DB Dominique Love; Sr. LB-FB Cole Simons


Breakdown: Sage Hill returns off a bye week looking to snap a two-game losing streak and the Lightning will try to do it against The Bishop’s of La Jolla, which won the CIF San Diego Section Division V and CIF State Division IV titles last year and finished 14-0 … The Lightning play a team from the San Diego Section for the second time in nonleague play … The Bishop’s is averaging 45 points per game … Sage Hill has been outscored, 86-14, in the past two contests … The Lightning are hoping Taylor Petty can start at quarterback after missing most of the Sept. 16 game at Mojave because of a strained hamstring.
