The Hoover football team walked away victorious yet again Friday, defeating Beverly Hills, 33-0, at home to notch their third straight win to start the season.

The Tornados started the season by defeating Mark Keppel, 64-24, and then defeated Lynwood, 20-13, a week later.  

Hoover junior running back Andrew Torres, who impressed coaches in the past, continued to shine Friday night. Torres scored the first two touchdowns of the game, running in from two yards and five yards, respectively, in the first quarter.

Then, in the second quarter, Marcus Bailey, a wide receiver and safety, scored a 30-yard touchdown. 

 “Overall we got the dub, but there are a lot of things we have to fix, not just game wise but morally,” Bailey said. “It was a dirty win, but it was a win and we’d like to clean it up.” 

Hoover team captain Vaghinak Sakanyan noted the mental and physical aspects of the game. 

“The game was good but it wasn’t good enough because of the collision that happened with the opposite team,” Sakanyan said. “Nothing like that will never happen ever again.”

Brandon O, a wide receiver and free safety, was satisfied with the win.

“They played dirty and they tried to fake us out, but they couldn’t,” said O.

In the third quarter, Torres scored the last touchdown against the Normans, giving Hoover the winning score of 33-0.  

Hoover will try to start the season 4-0 for the first time since 1953 when it travels to play to a road game on Friday.
