"Tonight was just like a penicillin shot, just like coach said. It cures everything," Ward said. Fullerton Coach John Sneed would know. He was so ill with an intestinal disorder last week that he spent several hours in a hospital after one of Fullerton's losses. Fullerton's first victory since Dec.
