The receiver took control of the game, almost all by himself. Quarterback Saile Ramirez tossed a pass straight down the middle for receiver Charles Hallinan, but it was tipped and caught one- handed by Varela, who shifted his away around defenders for a 75-yard touchdown play to give the Matadors a 6-3 lead at halftime. Varela, like lightning, then struck again in the third quarter. Ramirez found his receiver streaking down the sideline and connected with him for a 78-yard touchdown and a 13-3 advantage. San Marino’s last chance to get back in the game ended following an interception in the end zone. The Matadors then drove down the field with Varela finishing off the night with another scoring reception to account for the 20-3 final score. Early on, it looked like San Marino (0-4-1) might have a chance to score an upset. The Titans, with the Matadors offense struggling early, drove down the field before settling for a 20-yard field goal by Tommy Wenzlau and a 3-0 lead. However, those were San Marino’s only points of the game. center_img SAN GABRIEL — In a sloppy, but impressive win, the San Gabriel High School football team overcame a slow start and put away San Marino High School in dazzling fashion.
