LA JOYA SPOILS HOME OPENER FOR ALHAMBRA
La Joya scored on its first possession and never looked back. They jumped out to a 21-0 and it looked like it was going to be a blowout. Then with 3:00 minutes to go in the half Alhambra finally got on the board and cut the lead to 21-6.
After a La Joya fumble the Lions scored again and cut the lead to 21-14 after the 2 point conversion with just 51 seconds left. But the first half scoring wasn't over. Both teams traded touchdowns and La Joya had a 28-22 half time lead.
La Joya came out in the second half and continued where they left and held the Lions scoreless in the second half and cruised to a 54-22 victory.
Alhambra looks to bounce back next week when they host the South Mountain Jaguars. La Joya goes to Mountain Ridge and is looking for it's second straight victory.
