By Ray Hamill — Check out video highlights above of Arcata’s Alex Jioras making a spectacular one-handed catch early in Friday night’s game against Balboa.
The play, which was good for 22 yards, set up the Tigers’ opening touchdown of the night, which came two plays later on a three-yard Jioras reception from quarterback Shane Purcell.
The Tigers, who suffered tough back-to-back losses against state playoff caliber programs the previous two weeks, would go to win comfortably, 58-26.
The 1-2 Tigers will host Pinole Valley next week, with the 2-2 Spartans coming off a close 29-27 win over Vallejo on Friday.
