The Silverado High football team finally won a closely contested game.
Silverado’s Deandre Gause scored on a 30-yard pass from Savon Moniz in the second quarter Thursday and the Skyhawks defense did the rest in a 7-0 victory against visiting Coronado.
Silverado’s record improved to 2-4 overall with the win, but the Skyhawks have led in all four of their defeats — four setbacks by a combined 20 points.
“Just getting win after so many close ones is big for us,” Silverado coach Andy Ostolaza said. “I’m glad we landed on the right side of the coin for once.”
Ostolaza said the defensive shutout included three sacks apiece from Coty Iwata and Mike Mash.
Despite losing its first two Southeast Division games, Silverado (1-3 in league play) can still win its way into the postseason with games against Foothill and Green Valley.
