Corcoran runs away from Yosemite in second half


After a lackluster first half, the Corcoran Panthers out for the second half ready to execute, as they bruised their way to a 43-6 win over Yosemite on Friday.

The Panthers allowed the Badgers to stick around in the first half, as they went into the break with a 16-6 lead.

But in the second half, Corcoran came out determined to pound the ball with runs up the middle, which resulted in outscoring the Badgers 27-0 in the second half.

The Panthers ended the game with 351 yards rushing compared to just 14 yards on the ground for the Badgers.

Running back Desmond Curtis led Corcoran with 143 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Trent Olmos also carried the ball 15 times for the Panthers for 101 yards and a touchdown.

When the Badgers began loading the box it opened it up for the Corcoran pass game, as quarterback Nico Portillo completed 10-of-15 passes for 101 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. Plus he also rushed for a touchdown on a botched field goal attempt.

Dillon Fugate, who had already caught a touchdown pass in the game, came in relief of Portillo and completed both of his passing attempts for 69 yards and a touchdown.

The Panther defense recorded four sacks in the contest.

Although the Badgers struggled to move the ball on the ground, they had some success through the air, with approximately 160 yards passing in the game.
