APTOS — The Pajaro Valley High football program is going through some growing pains as it lays the groundwork for future success.
The young Grizzlies were overmatched by undefeated Seaside in a Monterey Bay League Pacific Division game, falling 48-0 Friday night at Aptos High.
Pajaro Valley coach Joe Gregorio, however, was pleased that his players maintained their intensity throughout, after being disappointed in a 47-7 loss to North Salinas last week.
“We fought all the way through,” Gregorio said. “We are building upon the successes that we have, one play at a time.”
Seaside (5-0, 2-0 MBL Pacific Division), which has a win over perennial power Palma on its resume, enjoyed most of the successes Friday night. It scored touchdowns on all seven of its offensive possessions, including needing only 12 offensive plays to score five touchdowns in the first half.
Running back Chris Evans scored touchdowns on all three of his offensive touches. He opened the scoring on a 10-yard sweep, broke several tackles before diving into the end zone on a 24-yard catch, then hauled in a 67-yard score to make the score 34-0 midway through the second quarter.
Seaside quarterback Michael Turner completed 7 of 10 passes for 275 yards and four touchdowns, all of which came in the first half, during which the Grizzly defense struggled to tackle the Spartans’ many speedy, elusive weapons. His other two touchdown passes came on a 50-yarder to younger brother Ronald Turner and a 72-yard screen pass to Joseph Jakubowsky.
