Well that didn’t take long.

In just their second varsity game in school history, the Albert Einstein Rockets added their first varsity win to the record books.

The Rockets continued to find success on offense, scoring six times in a tight 42-38 victory over Indian Springs.

With 1:12 remaining and the Rockets trailing, quarterback Josh Greaves hit tight end Alec Servantes for the go-ahead score, and the defense forced a fumble in the red zone to close out the victory.

“I’m happy for the kids. I’m happy for the kids because, after last week, you don’t know,” said Einstein head coach Oscar De Leon. “I never felt like they gave up. Obviously with this win, they showed me that they left that behind them, and they’re ready to play ball.”

Things didn’t go as well last week in an 82-22 loss to Frazier Mountain.

But the offense showed it could score points, and it came to play again today.

Led by Greaves, who ran for two touchdowns and threw for four on the night to go along with 250 yards passing, the Rockets took a 22-14 lead entering the half.

But the Indian Springs offense wasn’t showing signs of stopping either.

“It was an up-and-down battle,” De Leon said. “They scored, we scored; Their defense couldn’t hold us.”

The Rockets improved to 1-1 with the victory, and will go for win No. 2 this Saturday against Calvary Chapel.

Notes: Junior Jordan Vasquez forced two fumbles for Albert Einstein.
