The varsity football team beat the Santa Clara High School Bruins 24-0 in their third consecutive win of the season maintaining an undefeated record on Friday.

Anthony Contreras (12) scored a touchdown in the first quarter, followed by another touchdown by Jared Anderson (11) in the second quarter. Mitchell Granados (11) caught a pick in the first quarter and team kicker Dominic Cea (12) kicked field goals after both touchdowns and later a third, bringing the score to 17-0 by halftime.

After a Santa Clara cheerleader and musical band performance during the halftime show, Harker gained seven additional points after a touchdown by Mitchell Granados (11) and a field goal towards the end of the third quarter, setting Harker’s score to 24. Anthony Meissner (11) caught a pick in the middle of the fourth quarter reversing the ball and James Pauli (12) sacked the Santa Clara quarterback.

The game ended with Harker winning 24-0. Nemo Yang (11), wide receiver and defensive lineman, attributed the victory to the team’s dedication and hard work both on and off season.

“I think it’s the consistent work we put in all year long, beginning from the off-season lifting, summer practice and pre-game game simulators,” Nemo said. “It’s very hard work, and it’s the high standards the coaches have made us live up to that lets us win.”

Nathaniel (Nash) Melisso (10), the football team manager, stated the team is optimistic about future games and are maintaining a good record so far.

“The season has been going very well,” Nash said. “We’re winning a lot of games and we won 77-6 on one game, setting a record, so the team’s looking forward for the games to come.”
