A little bit of rain did not prevent the Grossmont Foothillers and quarterback Anthony Lawrence from reaching their goals Friday night in a 35-6 win over Otay Ranch High School.

On Grossmont’s second possession of the game, quarterback Anthony Lawrence led to the end zone finding wide receiver Alijah Avant to help set him up for the touchdown. Then Lawrence runs the ball in for the first score of the night.

Grossmont Quarterback Anthony Lawrence needed only 48 yards to break one more SDCIF record on Friday night. With 20-25 completions and 280 yards his last high school league game went down in the record books. The 48-6 win was icing on the cake.

Helix won the musket in the rivalry game vs. Grossmont with a 58-36 win.

Grossmont Hillers made orange juice out of the Valhalla Orange Nation with a 69-14 win at Valhalla.

Valhalla had won four out of their last five meeting with Grossmont’s varsity football team and this week there was more than a little bit of determination on the field. Grossmont came with a mission and with 9:44 left to play in the first quarter, quarterback Anthony Lawrence made a short pass 9 yards to running back AJ Shaw making the first touchdown of the night.

Members of Jibe Studios Dance Crew attended the Monday Night Chargers on Oct. 14, game dressed as zombies to raise money to go to a dance convention in the spring. Zombies milled through the crowd of football fans and then sporadically began dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Charger and Colts fans came together to help support the zombies in their efforts to raise money for their spring convention.

Whether rooting for the Grossmont Hillers or the Steele Canyon Cougars, fans surely have no nails left after Friday nights heart stopping last 8.8 seconds of the game.
