BURBANK — Both coaches stated the obvious.
The Hoover High football team was overmatched against Burroughs on Thursday night.
The Indians did as they pleased in the Pacific League game at Memorial Field. They scored on 10 of 11 possessions and Andrew Williams threw five touchdown passes to lead the Indians to a 69-0 win.
“They were overmatched, but you love their spirit,” Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said. “They played hard and they get to play football.”
Knoop was courteous to the Tornadoes.
His team knew the feeling of being blown out after it lost to Muir, 42-7, last week.
“We had a bad week against Muir last week,” Williams said. “We had to do what we were supposed to do tonight.”
Williams did a lot of damage against Hoover (2-5, 0-4 in league).
He had touchdown passes of one, 16, 32, 47, and five yards — all in the first half. He completed 14 of 17 passes for 183 yards, all in the opening half, leading his team to a 48-0 halftime lead.
