UC CENTURIONS SPEARED BY SERRA CONQUISTADORS

The University City (UC) Centurions suffered a tough 27-13 loss to the Serra Conquistadors in a non-league football game at Serra last Friday, Sept. 23.

UC jumped out to an early 7-0 lead when senior running back Jordan Green gathered in a six-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Jack Minnick with 6:06 left in the first quarter.

With the score all tied up at 7-7, Green got into the end zone once again, this time on a touchdown run from three yards out to give the Centurions a cushion of 13-7 with 4:35 remaining in the second quarter.

Unfortunately for UC, that was as close as they would get as the Conquistadors would pull away and clinch the victory in the second half.

With the loss, the Centurions saw their record fall to 2-2 on the young season.

Meanwhile, senior running back Kenneth Martey matriculated the ball 55 yards on eight carries, but it wasn’t quite enough as the La Jolla Vikings (1-3) were shutout 34-0 by the St. Augustine Saints at Mesa College.
