Bishop Amat game story: Bishop Amat overcame a two-touchdown deficit and Adrian Ortega overcame two early fumbles to rebound with three interceptions and two touchdowns to lead the Pac-5s eight-ranked Lancers to a 38-28 upset over sixth-ranked Santa Margarita in the season opener at Kiefer on Friday.
“I had to come back,” Ortega said. “I had to make up for it (fumbles). I owed it to my team, to everybody.” Amat quarterback Koa Haynes returned from a so-so first half to light up in the second, finishing with 275 yards and a game-clinching touchdown to Tyler Vaughns with 1:47 left to ice it.
