GLENDALE >> All the Muir High School football team needed was to get to Pacific League play.
The Mustangs opened league action with a resounding 30-0 victory over Glendale on Thursday night at Glendale’s Moyse Field. It was their first victory of the season.
Chase Keough threw for 209 yards and three TDs to lead Muir.
Muir coach John Hardy: “We got a victory. We have to get better from here. No disrespect to Glendale, but we expected to win this game. Getting the doughnut was good, but we have to get better and be more physical.”
Chase Keough: “It felt good. It’s the first taste that I’ve got here. It’s well deserved. We worked hard this summer.”
LA CANADA 26, RIO HONDO PREP 19
For three quarters, La Canada looked out of sync on offense. Then came a wild fourth quarter.
Trailing by 10 with eight minutes left, the Spartans scored 17 points in a wild sequence to escape with a 26-19 nonleague home win against Rio Hondo Prep.
Anthony Connell scored on a 7-yard run with 6:16 left to make 19-16. After forcing Rio Hondo to punt, the Spartans quickly moved down the field and Mikey Selsor kicked a 30-yard field goal to tie the game at 19 with 1:30 left.
Ryan Breneman forced a fumble on the ensuing kickoff recovered by Josh Moulin and on the next play, Breneman scored on a 26-yard run to complete the comeback.
