University scored back-to-back touchdowns as Anthony Medina (Sr.) secured a tipped interception and ran it back to the house for 35 yards for a 29-0 lead.
“I was at the right place at the right time. It’s a great feeling,” Medina said, “It’s not about me. It’s about the team.”
University’s three interceptions and 10 tackles for loss kept Adelanto’s offense stagnant all night long.
“This was a great defensive game for us,” said Outland, Division I Fresno State commit.
With the win, UHS remains undefeated going into league with a 5-0 season record.
“I don’t expect anything else,” Pourdanesh said, “We are good enough to beat any team out there.”
The Trojans’ next home game is their league opener on Friday, October 7 against Beckman High School.
