The Coronado High School football team took on Francis Parker last Friday for their first game of the season.
The final score was 6-41, with Francis Parker coming out on top. The Islander team played tremendously against such a tough opponent. “It was a tough loss,” said head coach Tony Isabella. “Francis Parker is a good team. That is one of the reasons we play teams like that. It will only make us better. I’m always proud of our team.”
Injuries to players Zack Kozlik, Michael Dunphey and Patricio Ochoa hurt the team, but other key athletes still gave a tremendous effort on the field: Robbie Weissenfels, Jared Meoni, Jordan Naramore, Michael Butcher and Kyle Dodson, just to name a few.
Coach Isabella also added that their next game against Southwest High School, scheduled for September 6th at 7 p.m., should not be missed. Check out the rest of the boys’ schedule here!
