Estancia High’s football team is already off to a better campaign than last year.

Senior running back Trevor Pacheco rushed for three touchdowns in the Eagles’ 34-21 season-opening win against visiting Loara on Friday night.


“We’re hungry,” said Estancia coach Mike Bargas, whose team lost its first five games in 2017. “It’s always good to start of the season with a win and these group of guys are going to build on that.”

Jaycen Cash and Damien Lambert each had a rushing touchdown for the Eagles.


Estancia plays La Quinta (0-1) at Bolsa Grande High on Aug. 30.
