Football: Garfield earns respect from Edison

September 06, 2013|By Eric Sondheimer

 In a 14-0 loss to Huntington Beach Edison on Thursday, Los Angeles Garfield earned the respect of Edison Coach Dave White.

"That's the best Garfield team we've played," White said. "They are athletic. They're very young. That's scary."

It was the third time Edison and Garfield have played, and the two schools will meet again next season.

Garfield has been competitive with two top Southern Section teams _ Edison and Ventura St. Bonaventure despite being 0-2.

"I think we're representing the City well," Garfield Coach Lorenzo Hernandez said. "You can't make mistakes to beat a Southern Section team. If we don't make mistakes, we're in better position to win."

A standout for Garfield was sophomore linebacker Joseph Silva. "He was all over the field," Hernandez said.

Edison junior quarterback Matthew Gane had two touchdown passes. White is still trying to get his team prepared for tough games ahead against Servite and Mater Dei.

"We're not where we need to be," he said.

Edison has a bye next week, then faces Servite.
