Garden Grove Holds Off Bolsa Grande

October 30, 1998

Garden Grove survived a late rally to post a 21-14 victory over host Bolsa Grande in a Garden Grove League game Thursday.

Miguel Medina of Garden Grove (3-5, 1-3), who had an interception, knocked down Bolsa Grande quarterback Doug Baughman's 50-yard desperation pass in the end zone as time expired.

Junior Diaz scored on two touchdown runs and Eddie Vailolo, who also had an interception, scored on a short run to give Garden Grove a 21-0 lead.

Bolsa Grande (0-8, 0-4) rallied behind Baughman, who completed 12 of 24 passes for 206 yards. His 48-yard touchdown pass to Steve Jenks and 45-yard scoring pass to John Bui drew the Matadors to within, 21-14.

Bolsa Grande got the ball back on its 30 with three minutes remaining, but the drive ended when Baughman's fourth-and-20 pass to Jenks went for 19 yards.

Bolsa Grande got the ball back with eight seconds remaining, and after a 13-yard-completion to Jenks, Baughman's final pass fell incomplete.
