Sierra Pacific High School football started out the 2022 season with a 26-7 victory over Orange Cove High this past Thursday night.
"The win was a great team victory that showed that the Bears can score in every area of the game," school officials said in a release.
Sophomore kicker Jacob Cunha led the Bears with two field goals and two extra points. While Junior Defensive back Landyn Benitez scored on a 23 yard interception return. Senior running Back Blake Sifton had 15 carries and 67 yds while cashing in on his first rushing touchdown of the season.
