Ryan Chae, Sports Editor

In the inaugural season of head coach Kevin Argumosa, the Diamond Bar High School football team failed to record a win, losing their final game of the season, 45-32 against Claremont.

Down 35-6 at halftime, the Brahmas, playing at home, made a valiant effort to come back, scoring 26 points in the second half. Yet, it wasn’t enough as the Wolfpack scored ten of their own points.

DB started the game with a surprising onside kick, but Claremont recovered the ball at their 49. The Wolfpack, however, lost the ball on a fumble, which DB recovered on their own 42.

With possession, the Brahmas scored the first points of the game on a 6-yard rushing touchdown by junior Jeremiah Chukwadobe, putting them up 6-0 after the missed the PAT kick. Chukwadobe’s rushing TD would be the only score of the half for DB as Claremont scored 35 unanswered points off a kick return TD, a combined four rushing and receiving TD and five PATs.

In the second half, DB started with the ball and tried to cut down the lead with a 31-yard receiving TD by senior Charles Johnson and the successful two-point conversion. Up 35-14, Claremont stretched the lead back to 28 with a TD and extra point with 4:15 in the third quarter.

Less than two minutes in the third quarter, DB scored an 18-yard TD to shorten the lead. This time, the Brahmas failed their two-point conversion.

To begin the final quarter of DB’s season, the Wolfpack scored a field goal and their final points of the night, putting them up 45-20.

The Brahmas responded with a drive that ended with a one-yard rushing TD for Chukwadobe and another failed two-point conversion. With a little over nine minutes in its season, DB was down 45-26.

After forcing Claremont to punt, DB put up their final touchdown of the season with a little over four minutes in the game. Unable to convert on their two-point conversion, the Brahmas ended their final game of the year, 45-32.
