(Covina) The Los Altos Conquerors opened the season and the Travis Brown era with a solid 35-27 win over the Covina Colts Friday night at Covina District Field.
The defense came up with three turnovers including three inteceptions of Covina’s Nin Burns II one of which was returned for a score.
Midway through the third quarter the Conquerors held a 28-8 advantange and it looked like it was going to be smooth sailing from there. Burns and the rest of the Colt offense were done and stormed back to cut the lead to 28-21 as the clock closed on the third.
Los Altos pushed their advantange back to 14 points early in the final frame but Burns and company responded with another score of their own.
With time winding down, Covina went on their final drive of the evening all the way to the Los Altos 10. The drive was highligted by a 4th and 14 play that Burns connected with Matthew Mannino for 36 yards and a first down.
Facing a fourth and goal at the Conqueror ten, Burns looked in the direction of Martin Keeley but his pass fell short ending the drive and the hope of the Colts.
