Amherst meets the end of the road against Petersburg

By DEREK LOPEZ

The Amherst Bulldogs’ varsity football team fell short in their comeback efforts against Petersburg on Friday at New Home, 58-27, as their season came to an end in the 1A Six-Man Division II Bi-District round of the playoffs.

The Buffaloes elected to receive to begin the contest and were able to cap off their opening drive with a three-yard touchdown run by Tristan Garza with 8:06 to play in the first quarter. The kick after by JP Nesler was good, putting Petersburg up, 8-0.

Amherst lined-up for the kick return, but an onside kick try was fumbled by the Bulldogs and recovered by Jesus Alvarado at the Amherst 34-yard line.
