On its first drive, Washington High School learned that its running game wasn’t going to be enough to beat Balboa.
After a four-and-out series, Washington head coach Karl Finley, who usually relies on his team’s running game, knew that he had to make a change.
With eight men in the box to stop the Washington run, the Eagles’ backfield was left open. Junior Eagle quarterback Aram Gevandian took advantage, throwing for 150 yards and two touchdowns on 12-of-25 passing to lead Washington to a 24-20 win on Saturday.
