Weed jumped out to a 34-0 lead before Quincy scored, leaving the outcome certain at halftime. Running back Brandon Cordes Jr. carried a lot of the load. He scored a rushing touchdown and ran back one of his two interceptions for a pick-six.

The Weed Cougars varsity football game scheduled for Homecoming was cancelled when Quincy High couldn’t field a team, so it was left to the junior varsity squad to defend the school’s honor.
They were up for the challenge, beating the Quincy JV squad 40-14 Friday evening to earn the team's second win of the season.
“We played solid football,”  said Brandon Cordes, an assistant coach with the Cougars football program. “It was a team effort.”
Weed jumped out to a 34-0 lead before Quincy scored, leaving the outcome certain at halftime. Running back Brandon Cordes Jr. carried a lot of the load. He scored a rushing touchdown and ran back one of his two interceptions for a pick-six.
The line blocked well for the Cougars, with Cordes Jr. following an armada of Weed lineman on a couple of his scampers down the far sideline. He finished with 128 yards on 17 carries.
Quarterback Kobe Chanthavisouk had a good night. He stopped a Trojan scoring drive with an interception on his 12-yard line while playing defense. He also scored a rushing TD on a quarterback keeper and threw two touchdown passes, one to Yur Sire Sanders on a cleverly designed and executed fake field goal. He threw the ball 10 times for 90 yards.
Sanders also showed up big for the game. He ran back a Quincy punt 70 yards down to the Trojan 5 yard line, setting up Chanthavisouk’s TD run, and intercepted a pass in the third quarter.
He was a solid part of the Cougar running attack along with Tommy Pineda, who also caught a TD pass. Pineda also went 2-for-3 in extra point kicks.
Julio Garcia recovered a Trojan fumble for the Cougars. He caught three passes for 40 yards. He had one touchdown run.
“Our offense only punted twice all game led by a solid night from our offensive line,” Coach Cordes said. “Our defense was lights out. Nice group effort. We won all three phases of the game.”
 Early in the fourth quarter, with Weed leading 34-6, the coaching staff from Quincy approached the Cougars for a request, Coach Cordes said. The coaches from both teams agreed to let Quincy’s Seth Williams, a developmentally challenged but enthusiastic Trojan team member, run the ball and score a touchdown. The Cougars dove in vain to tackle him and allowed themselves to be blocked, as Williams went 65 yards for the TD.
The crowd cheered on Williams, who had a night he will always remember and brought many a tear to the fans watching.
“The look on that kids face when he scored was priceless,” Cordes said. “It was a very special moment.”
He added that the Quincy coaches told him that Williams broke his foot the very first day of practice, but that he still made every practice.
Weed hosts Fall River this Friday night in their final home game of the season. The varsity game starts at 7:30 p.m., with the JV contest beginning at 5:30 p.m.
