U.S. Grant snaps 29-game losing streak
It took an extra night to get the game in, but it was worth the wait for U.S. Grant. The Generals snapped a 29-game losing streak with a 12-6 win over Capitol Hill Saturday night.
Wind snapped power lines near Speegle Stadium on Friday, so the game had to be moved back one night.
The Generals (1-1) used a strong rushing attack that included Lawrence Pullen racking up 131 yards on 18 carries, with Wesley Sanchez adding 78 yards rushing along with a 37-yard reception.
Sanchez also intercepted two passes, and Kimako Thompson picked off one, returning it for a touchdown. Charles Clawson helped the cause with a pair of quarterback sacks.
U.S. Grant will go for its second straight win at Centennial Friday. The Generals’ last multiple-win season came when they went 4-6 in 2003, their last season in Class 5A.
