Football: Steinbrenner 23, East Bay 0

GIBSONTON — Steinbrenner shut out East Bay, riding a steady offense points and a solid defensive performance to a 23-0 win.

East Bay's first chance came at the end of the first quarter when a punt bounced off a Warrior's foot and was recovered by the kicking team. The Indians got the ball inside the 7-yard line but Steinbrenner recovered a botched pitch in the backfield. The Warriors (1-1) scored but a flag negated the points.

The first points came on the foot of the Warriors' Michael Ruggles with two minutes left in the half.

East Bay (1-1) had a chance before the half ended but Chris Carpentier's pass bounced off his open receiver's chest pads.

The longest play of the night was one of Steinbrenner's two touchdowns. Kendall Pearcey broke a 63-yard run in the fourth quarter.
