The Warriors will play host to a 2 to 2 1/2-hour scrimmage with Hawthorne and Silver Stage beginning at noon in Zephyr Cove.

“Everybody is pretty excited around our school right now because football is back,” said WHS coach Dennis Young. “How good we’re going to be, I don’t know. We’re going to be competitive and I expect a lot of good things out of it.”

There will be a spaghetti feed, a football team fund-raiser, following the game. The cost is $5 for adults and $3 for children.

Bruso edged by Lancaster

Greg Bruso missed a chance to win his second straight game for the High Desert on Sunday.

The former South Tahoe High pitcher was staked to a 4-1 lead after four innings, but Lancaster rallied for a 9-8 California League baseball victory.

Bruso (1-6) allowed 10 hits and six earned runs in 6 2/3 innings.

He struck out four and like he often has, Bruso didn’t walk a batter.

Lancaster scored twice in each of the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to take 7-4 lead. The Mavericks, who committed four errors, pulled within a run twice by scoring two runs in the seventh and eighth innings.
