De La Salle Runs All Over Amador Valley

Not much to write about here. Spartans do their thing and remain the class of the East Bay yet again. A report from Bill Soliday of the Pleasant Patch.

De La Salle’s offense scored on all six first-half possessions for a 42-0 halftime lead and only allowed Amador’s offense to pierce their red zone for one play all night, rolling to a virtually uncontested 56-0 East Bay Athletic League victory.

Those who arrived on the Amador campus hoping to pose a threat to the national powerhouse in another well-contested game such as last year’s battle, won by De La Salle 32-21, went away disappointed as the Spartans, ranked No. 7 in the nation by USA Today, marched to their fifth win and their first shutout.

It was a pure case of shock and awe from the beginning.

With slippery senior halfback Lucas Dunne rushing for 179 yards and three touchdowns, the Spartans put up 354 yards of offense in the first half alone, averaging 12.2 yards per offensive play. By contrast, the Dons averaged 3.2 yards a play.

On defense, De La Salle permitted Amador to set up camp on its side of the field just three times. The closest sniff the Dons got of the Spartans’ goal line came late in the third quarter with De La Salle already ahead 49-0.
