EL CAJON – The Grossmont Foothillers put it all together Friday night, especially in the turnover department, rolling to a 63-3 win over visiting Hilltop.

Grossmont led 51-3 at halftime.

NOAH CRESS returned an interception 30 yards for a touchdown just over a minute into the game and the Hillers were ready to light up the scoreboard.

Grossmont quarterback JAMIE ODOM threw a 25-yard touchdown pass for THOMAS MANGUM for a 14-0 advantage.

Odom threw for 159 yards and three scores on the evening. Mangum had three receptions for 56 yards.

Grossmont recovered a fumble to take possession at Hilltop’s 37.

ZACK JONES had 10 tackles for Grossmont, while JULIAN SANDERLIN made it six sacks in three games with two more put-downs on Friday night against the Lancers.

Sanderlin also had a fumble recovery and an interception.

Then, Odom threw another 25-yard TD, this time to JOSH MOALA, who is really starting to get untracked and in tune with the sophomore signal caller.

Grossmont senior SHEVELL STERLING, JR., had a 7-yard touchdown run for a four-score lead.

AMBER HUFF, Grossmont’s kicker, had a 28-yard field goal to make it 31-3.

Moments later, Grossmont recorded another interception at their own 37-yard line.

In the second quarter, Odom hit Moala again, this time for a 62-yard touchdown.

Grossmont then recovered another Hilltop turnover at the Lancers’ 10-yard line, although the Hillers gave it right back on a turnover just a few plays later.

Later in the second, however, Sterling, Jr., scored on a 2-yard run to make it 44-3.

Senior quarterback DYLAN SMITH added a rushing touchdown in the second half of three yards. DOMONIC ESPINO and DESMOND CARTER also scored touchdowns.

Carter had five carries for 63 yards, including a 14-yard score. Espino had a 2-yard TD run.

Grossmont rushed for 253 yards, led by junior RB DAMARI CRAWFORD, who tallied 18 carries for 92 yards.

 

The Foothillers host Eastlake next Friday.
