Joseph Barrocas rushes for 3 TDs, 214 yards in Mater victory over Westland Hialeah


Special to the Miami Herald

Mater Academy’s Joseph Barrocas ran for 214 yards and three touchdowns, including a 98-yarder, as the Lions beat Westland Hialeah on Friday at Milander Park.

Barrocas’ 98-yard burst came just after the Lions (5-1) stopped Westland Hialeah on the 2-yard line to turn a 34-14 game into a 27-point lead with 7:35 to play.

Jamal Adjamah’s 12-yard run, in which he dove backward on second effort to find the end zone, was the backbreaker, lifting the Lions to a 27-14 lead.

Westland quarterback Romell Guerrier’s 42-yard run 2:41 into the second half cut Mater’s 13-point halftime lead to five, 19-14.

Brian Guerra also tossed an 85-yard scoring strike to Steven Rodriguez.
