The El Diamante Miners’ varsity football team took on the Sunnyside Wildcats, September 4, at the Groppetti Automotive Community Stadium. The Miners brought home their first victory of the season with a score of 7-0. The Miners received the second half kickoff after struggling to initiate an offense in the first half of the game. After recovering the ball from a failed play, the Miners destroyed the Wildcats’ offensive drive. A timeout was called, followed with Sunnyside shanking the punt and the El Diamante quarterback ending the game with the final score. The Miners’ record is currently at 1-1.
