SAN GABRIEL -Bosco Tech High School football coach Chris Shockley knew there would be good and bad days with young squad this season.
Thursday was one of the latter.
Collin Farrar rushed for 208 yards and three touchdowns and Andrey Sanchez had 108 with two scores and the visiting Fillmore Flashes rolled to a 49-6 victory over the Tigers in a nonleague game at Gabrielino High.
Bosco Tech, which opened with close setbacks to Hacienda Heights Wilson (21-6) and Gabrielino (27-21), slipped to 0-3 after being held to 79 yards and five first downs. Junior Max Mora scored the only points for the Eagles with a 90-yard kickoff return in the second quarter.
Fillmore, which rushed for 391 yards and had 457 total yards, improved to 2-1.
They’re a quality opponent,” Shockley said. “They are a really tough team and played very well tonight. This being our third loss, it’s tough for us. We tried to play as hard as we could tonight. But we just couldn’t muster anything.”
Fillmore sealed the win by halftime after scoring on its first five possessions for a 35-6 lead.
Farrar, who had 187 yards rushing and three touchdowns, set the tone early by running 16 yards to the Bosco Tech’s 40 on his first carry before going 34 yards to the 6. He then made it 7-0 with a 1-yard run at 8:09 of the first quarter.
Fillmore, which held the Tigers to 22 yards and one first down in the first half, made it a three-possession lead on its next two series. Sanchez, who rushed for 74 yards in the first half, made it 21-0 following a 6-yard run at 3:24 and a 17-yard burst at 11:52 of the second quarter.
Farrar followed with touchdown runs of 37 and 30 for a 35-6 lead at halftime.
“Their running attack was real tough,” Shockley said. “We just couldn’t corral (Farrar). Our guys were giving an effort. But you have to give them credit. They’re a really good football team.”
Mora gave the Tigers their only highlight following Farrar’s 37-yard touchdown run with his 90-yard return to make it 28-6 at 7:48. The conversion kick was wide.
“We take a lot of pride in our special teams,” Shockley said. “We work as hard as we can in practice with that stuff. We have two really good return guys and we believe in both of them.
“You saw Max Mora tonight. He gave us a little spark, and we tried to build off it. We couldn’t. But it was a great run back by Max.”
Fillmore made it 49-6 in the third quarter after a 25-yard pass from Carson McLain to Tyler Esquivel and a 23-yard run by Adam Jimenez.
