There is a new kid on top of the mountain in District 1-6A, and it’s the Pebble Hills Spartans.  This team continues to win in impressive fashion from week to week as they sustained their trend by knocking off former district powerhouse Americas 32-9 on Friday night at the SAC.  Pretty remarkable considering that this team didn’t even exist a little more than a few seasons ago.

It appeared as things may have gotten off to a rocky start for the Spartans as they started backup QB CJ Beanes in lieu of regular signal caller Orlando Puig who had suffered a shoulder injury this past week.  Beanes settled right in to the role though as he found WR Justin Wolfe for a 10 yard touchdown at the 8:19 mark of the first quarter to give Pebble Hills an early 7-0 lead.  A few minutes later, the Spartans took advantage of an Americas fumble when Beanes threw a 26 yard TD pass to leading receiver Kevin Averette to go up 13-0.

A Pebble Hills fumble resulted in an Americas field goal to pull within 10 points at 13-3 midway through the second quarter, and the Trailblazers were driving to potentially score a late first half touchdown when disaster struck.  With 12.5 seconds remaining in the first half, Americas QB Frank Melendez threw an interception that was taken back 70 yards for the pick-six by DB Jacob Hernandez to put the Spartans up 19-3 at the half.

To add insult to injury for Americas, Pebble Hills starting QB Orlando Puig came back in to the game late in the first half and flip flopped with backup QB Beanes.  Puig would go on to throw a touchdown pass in the game as his squad easily won to stay undefeated  CJ Beanes went 10 for 17 for 80 yards, threw 2 touchdown passes, and 2 interceptions.

Spartan’s WR Justin Wolfe had three receptions for 45 yards and scored 2 TD’s.  For Americas, they just simply couldn’t take advantage of the three Pebble Hills turnovers en route to the loss.  QB Frank Melendez went 10 for 28 with 81 yards and had 16 rushes for 111 yards.  Pebble Hills improved to 6-0, 3-0 in 1-6A with the win, and will host Socorro next Friday.  Americas fell to 2-4, 1-2 in District 1-6A, and will host Eastwood next week.
