BELL-JEFF VS. ST. ANTHONY
WHEN: 7 p.m. Saturday.
WHERE: Memorial Field (Burroughs High).
RECORDS: The Guards are 2-5, 0-1 in the Santa Fe League; the Saints are 5-2, 1-1.
LAST WEEK: Bell-Jeff lost to Salesian, 48-0; St. Anthony defeated St. Monica, 16-13.
OUTLOOK: Bell-Jeff was dealt a big blow earlier this week when it was determined that starting sophomore quarterback Johnathan Porter was lost for the season with a broken hand. Porter, a transfer from Golden Valley, passed for nearly 1,000 yards for Bell-Jeff.
The quarterback injured his hand in a nonleague game against Malibu on Oct. 5. “It had been hurting him for a while and he went to get it checked by a doctor and they said he had a break in the small bone at the bottom of his hand,” said Bell-Jeff Coach David Machuca, who is in his first year.
“They are going to have to cast the hand and eventually he’s going to have to have surgery.”
