LOS ANGELES - Not wanting to rest on their laurels following up last week's win over Banning of Wilmington, the San Pedro High football team took care of business against host Washington Prep of Los Angeles.
Bolting to a 34-0 halftime lead, the Pirates would continue to use their punishing ground attack for its own benefit while their stifling defense did the rest in their 40-6 Marine League victory over the Generals.
Even San Pedro's struggling passing game jumped into the fray.
On the final play of the first half, sophomore quarterback Jacob Miller connected with fellow sophomore WR/DB Antonio Frazier for a 10-yard touchdown pass, Miller's first aerial scoring strike since hitting up senior WR/DB Albert Martinez for a 28-yard touchdown against Locke of Los Angeles back on September 6.
Junior running back Chris Alvidrez ran for 103 yards and two touchdowns on only 12 carries for San Pedro (6-3 overall, 2-2 league). Senior running back Pete Palacios ran for only 16 yards on three carries, but for two touchdowns, and senior running back Stephen Vaughn also ran for 90 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries for the Pirates, who have now won two straight.
With the starters on the bench the entire second half, Washington (4-5, 1-3) was able to break up the shutout with Tyron Ross returning a fumble 75 yards for a touchdown with 2:32 left in the third quarter.
San Pedro closes out the 2013 season with their Homecoming game against Gardena next Friday.
