In a lopsided game, dominated by South Pasadena’s varsity football team, the locals trounced visiting Los Angeles Marshall by a score of 53-0.
The intersectional victory propelled the Tigers to a 3-0 record in the pre-season with one game left against Alhambra HS before the league season starts.
South Pasadena completely dominated the game on both sides of the line, with the defense holding Marshall scoreless. The Tigers ran up a 34-0 score in the first quarter, which most longtime observers consider the most points ever scored in one period by South Pasadena. They added another 6 points to conclude the half at 40-0.
Confident that they had pretty much had the game in the bag the Tigers scored only 13 more points in the second half to walk away with a 53-0 win. The offensive show was led by quarterback Jackson Freking who was able to find open receivers on numerous occasions, and the running by back Richard Conti who was able to score and gain huge yardage through the holes set up by his offensive line.
