Visiting Archbishop Mitty scored the game's first 28 points en route to an easy 35-14 win at Leland Friday night. With the victory, the Monarchs improve to 2-0 on the season while the Chargers fall to 1-1.
Senior quarterback Trent Scharrenberg threw touchdown passes to three different receivers and ran for another score as the Monarchs built a 28-0 lead through three quarters. Scharrenberg, who finished with 195 yards on 10-of-15 passing, hit Drew Mount (18 yards), Tommy Hudson (20) and Kyle Evans (37) for touchdowns and also ran one in from 37 yards out to give Mitty a 28-0 lead with 1:13 remaining in the third quarter.
Leland got on the board on a touchdown pass from senior quarterback Matt McLaughlin to Liam Saito, but Mitty answered right back as backup quarterback Brett Foley got loose for a 37-yard touchdown run of his own to put the game away, 35-7, early in the fourth quarter.
Mitty hosts Keller Chryst and the Palo Alto Vikings next Friday night in its final tuneup before West Catholic Athletic League play begins Oct. 4. Leland visits Soquel before opening Blossom Valley Athletic League-Mount Hamilton Division action on Oct. 4.
