The dream football season of the Pleasant Grove Eagles came to an end yesterday, following a 36-14 loss at the hands of the St. Mary's Rams. The Eagles put up a valiant effort, but in the end were overmatched against the larger, deeper St. Mary's squad.
Thankfully the rain held off for one more day, but the game was definitely a brisk affair. As long as the sun was out things were fine, but every time it ducked behind a cloud, it was time to get out the stocking cap.
Considering this was just the second year that PGHS has fielded a full varsity squad, 11-3 is nothing to sneeze out. Heck, in my four years at Del Campo (this was back in the 70s, but still) the team won a total of 15 games in four years.
This shot shows first quarter action from the game, played at Amos Alonzo Stagg Stadium on the campus of the University of the Pacific in Stockton.
