SOUTHERN SECTION ROUNDUP

September 27, 1997|GLENN HALLER

Palmdale 31, Verbum Dei 8--Iman Rodriguez scored twice on punt and interception returns to break a 6-6 halftime tie and lead the Falcons (3-0) at Palmdale.

Rodriguez scored on an 80-yard punt return midway through the third quarter and five minutes later returned an Eagle pass 40 yards for a touchdown to give Palmdale a 19-6 lead.

It was the first of two interceptions for Rodriguez and the first of two Falcon interceptions returned for touchdowns. Ty Chiaro scored on a 22-yard interception in the fourth quarter to close Palmdale's scoring.

Grant Livermont passed for 242 yards, completing eight of 13 attempts. His 33-yard touchdown pass to Horacio Diaz in the fourth quarter ended some of the frustration of throwing for more than 200 yards only to have the running and kicking games sputter in scoring position.
