Football: Mission stuns Lowell with shutout in AAA opener

By Ernest Stone

Thursday’s Academic Athletic Association league-opening football game between Mission High School and Lowell was the best matchup either team could have asked for.

Both teams failed to win any non-league games, both teams were convincingly outscored in the process and both needed a win to reassure a direction for their respective seasons.
