Bulletin sports logo

Sierra’s football team faced the top passing attack in the Sac-Joaquin Section on Friday, but host Kimball used a more balanced approach en route to a commanding 56-14 victory.

The Jaguars (3-1 Valley Oak League, 7-1 overall) of Tracy totaled 321 yards, with standout quarterback Nicholas Coronado finishing 8 of 13 for 147 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for three touchdowns, one covering 66 yards and another 67 yards.

Kimball also showed its big-play ability on special teams, getting its final two TDs on 97- and 75-yard kickoff returns from Travis Marieiro and Darius Doyle, respectively.

Victor Serna (5 of 9, 58 yards, two interceptions) had a hand in both of Sierra’s scores, first hitting Izayah Houston for a 17-yard pass touchdown late in the second quarter. Kimball led 48-7 at halftime.

The Timberwolves (1-4, 1-8) later capitalized on a turnover inside Kimball’s 10-yard line. Serna punched it in with a 1-yard keeper. Anthony Grady led Sierra with 81 rushing yards on 26 attempts. Sierra was limited to 156 yards.
