The Mammoth Huskies, now in the thick of High Desert Conference play, get to participate in a Home- coming tonight (Friday).
The problem is that it’s Boron’s homecoming, not theirs.
Coming off a strong 49-8 victory over Riverside Prep at Gault/MClure Stadium, the Huskies actually look to ruin Boron’s big night.
It won’t be easy.
Boron (4-1) is coming off a 56-6 victory over Vasquez on Friday, Sept. 21, and have won games this season by 54-0, 61-0 and 55-0. The Bobcats’ only loss was on Sept. 14, when they were taken to the cleaners, 48-6, by Rio Honda Prep of Arcadia.
The Huskies, meanwhile, are coming off a turnabout game.
After suffering four straight losses to start the season—three by blowout—the Huskies on Friday, Sept. 21, turned the tables on Riverside Prep in game that was a rout from the start.
The Huskies put up 21 points in each of the first two quarters, added seven more in the third, and finally let up in a scoreless fourth quarter.
Riverside Prep, this year a conference opponent, got on the scoreboard in the fourth quarter, when the game was well out of hand.
Senior running back Tyler Wormhoudt scored four touchdowns for the Huskies, rushed for 218 yards on 23 carries, and added one completed pass in a brief stint at quarterback, good for 12 yards.
Alex Hamilton, meanwhile, scored three touchdowns, carried the ball just four times, but picked up 59 yards, one on a 40-yard scamper in Mammoth’s longest rushing play of the game.
On the defensive side of the ball, Wormhoudt and Ricky Alex Hamilton teamed up for five tackles apiece, joining junior Nick Damico, who also had five tackles.
