YUCAIPA, CA – Fontana linebacker Richard Thorpe and quarterback Manuel Salgado were frustrated and disappointed after Friday’s game with the Yucaipa Thunderbirds.

It was a game in which the Steelers matched the Thunderbirds hit for hit, and play for play in the first half – trailing just 7-0 when the two teams left the field at half-time.

It was a game in which fourth place in the Citrus Belt League was on the line.

It was a game in which the outcome would go far in determining which team would advance into the post-season CIF playoffs.

But it was also a game in which the Thunderbirds outplayed and outscored the Steelers in the second half to post a 27-6 victory.

“We played hard but not good enough in the second half,” said Thorpe, who led the Steelers with 10 tackles. “We had trouble with their passing game and we missed too many tackles. That has killed us all season.”
