In two days, the Pitman High football players will get a chance to redeem themselves. And they’re facing the ideal opponent.
It’s winless Atwater High.
The Falcons are 0-2 in the Central California Conference, and 0-7 overall. Better yet for Pitman, the Pride get to play at Atwater High for the second consecutive week after giving up a 52-21 loss to undefeated Buhach Colony High last week on the school’s artificial turf.
Pitman coach Brandon Harris was optimistic about his team’s chances in Friday’s 7 p.m. game against the Falcons, considering he believes his team now has a better understanding of the field.
He also said after the Buhach Colony loss that his team had to quickly move on.
The Pride are 1-1 in the CCC and 5-2 overall; the BC game snapped the Pride’s five-game winning streak.
On Friday, the Pitman players and coaches will look to redeem themselves.
Hilmar to face tough Orestimba
Despite losing key players to injuries throughout the season, the Hilmar High Yellowjackets have prevailed. They’re 3-1 in the Trans-Valley League heading into Friday’s big matchup with Orestimba High, which also has the same league record. Both are also 5-3 overall.
The Warriors are coming off a bad loss. They ended a five-game winning streak after falling to Escalon High by 54 points.
The Yellowjackets have won three of their last four games, including last week’s 51-0 destruction of Riverbank High.
