Both of our High Desert football squads were in action this week, as the 2017 high school football season got underway.
The Falcons were first up on Thursday night, taking on the El Dorado Aztecs. Eastlake was in no mood to fool around, and quickly scored on the Aztecs several times en route to a 34 to 12 victory. (Hear the game replay via these links: FIRST HALF | SECOND HALF)
On Friday night, Horizon High hosted the Bowie Bears at Emperor Stadium. The Scorpions were ready to sting, and kept the game close, but the Bears proved to be too much, as they wen on to win 21 to 12.
