Volcano Vista hosted district 1 rival Cleveland at Community Stadium. The Storm outlasted the Hawks 35-12 to end a two-game losing streak.
“Offense we’re moving the ball,” said Cleveland head coach Robert Garza. “We kind of shot ourselves in the foot a couple times, but I think our defense is stepping up to the plate and I like the way our defense is getting after these guys up front. I think we’re starting to get some momentum.”
La Cueva: 74 vs Eldorado: 20
