The number 13 proved unlucky for the Saint Mary's College High varsity football team Friday night when its 13 points were dwarfed by the 36 put on the scoreboard by the Miramonte High Matadors in Orinda.
We're not sure what would happen in an actual matadors-versus-panthers showdown, but in the symbolic one on the gridiron Friday night, the Panthers from Saint Mary's College High lost their season opener 36-13 in a pummeling attack from the Miramonte High Matadors in Orinda.
Saint Mary's, located on the border of Albany and Berkeley, had a rough time facing Matadors' quarterback Drew Anderson, who threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns, according to the Contra Costa Times.
We'd like to thank Panthers' head coach Keith Minor for providing some of the team's stats for Patch:
Lorenzo Logwood led the team in rushing, with 124 yards in 27 carries and a touchdown. Tamarik Pierce covered 91 yards on 15 carries and scored the team's other touchdown. Ian Bonde completed 15 of for 30 passes for 223 yards, with two interceptions, and Eric Philip led all receivers with seven receptions for 118 yards.
