ENOCHS 40, HILMAR 12: In Hilmar, Taking on bigger schools finally caught up with Hilmar on Friday night.
Enochs quarterback Christian Kahler had a half to remember. The Enochs senior was 11 of 13 passing for 323 yards and four touchdowns as Enochs built a 33-6 lead at the half.
To add insult to injury, with just 9 minutes left in the game, Hilmar quarterback Andrew Olson ripped off a 39-yard scramble deep into Enochs territory. But at the end of the run, the senior fell awkwardly and suffered a compound fracture of his left wrist. It's the third straight season Hilmar will have lost their starting quarterback for an extended time due to injury.
"He'll be out the rest of the season," said Hilmar coach Frank Marques. "He'll have surgery and they'll have to put a pin in."
