High School Football Preview: St. Anthony vs. St. Pius X

St. Anthony is desperately seeking a win on the road tonight at St. Pius X-St. Matthias Academy in Downey. The Saints (1-3) have battled some tough local opponents and St. Pius might be their best chance at another nonleague win.

St. Pius (2-0) is a small program in its third year of existence with only about 30 kids on the varsity roster. The Warriors have wins over Bishop Montgomery and South Torrance.

St. Anthony coach Mario Morales said his team is feeling relatively healthy after battling with Wilson last week. The Saints were able to gain big chunks of yards on the experienced Bruins defense. Senior quarterback Lucas Lehmar is averaging 219 yards passing per game with 10 touchdowns and only one interception. Sophomore Sone Aupiu is averaging over 100 all-purpose yards per game at running back and receiver. READ MORE about Aupiu.
