The Signal - - SPORTS - By Jonathan Smith Sig­nal Staff Writer

Sau­gus High foot­ball will get a chance to start the sea­son 3-1 start this Fri­day when the face Ven­tura on the road Fri­day night.

Last week, the Cen­tu­ri­ons won a close game, 29-27, against Buena of Ven­tura. Cents are 2-1 in the sea­son.

“We’re pro­gress­ing each week,” said coach Ja­son Bornn. “We are get­ting bet­ter with the things we do week in and week out.

“We’re just look­ing to im­prove each week. Whether we win or lose, we want to keep pro­gress­ing.”

Bornn said his team will have to be dis­ci­pline in or­der to beat Ven­tura and its tight de­fense.

“They are very well coached,” Bornn said. “They are very dis­ci­plined. They have tremen­dous ath­letes on both side of the ball.

“We need to be fun­da­men­tally sound to try to com­pete with them to the best of our abil­ity.”

On the of­fen­sive side of the ball, the Cents will be look­ing for another strong per­for­mance from se­nior run­ning back Quinn Sheaf­fer, who has 369 yards rush­ing so far this sea­son.

Bornn is also hop­ing for strong per­for­mances from Sau­gus re­ceivers.

“We rely very heav­ily on our run­ning back and of­fen­sive line, but our re­ceivers will have to catch the ball when it’s thrown to them in or­der for us to be suc­cess­ful,” Bornn said.
