Outlook: Ah, what relief a victory can be. In last week’s 63-0 drubbing of Winterhaven (Calif.) San Pasqual, the Rams scored, then scored some more, all on the ground.
The Rams stuck to the ground, rushing for 381 yards and throwing just one pass the entire night.
Yuma Catholic has not lost a West Region game in three seasons. It easily dispatched Sells Baboquivari, which was considered a contender in the West, 51-8 last week. The Shamrocks have one of the best passing offenses in 2A, led by sophomore quarterback Matt Inman, who has thrown for 736 yards and six touchdowns this season.
