PLEASANT HILL -- The Alhambra High football team scored 48 unanswered points in the first half as it rolled past rival College Park 55-7 on Friday in a nonleague game at Diablo Valley College.

Alhambra quarterback Josh Evans completed 10 of 12 passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns in the first half. He also ran for a 17-yard touchdown for his team's first score.

"Josh has a total grasp of the offense" Alhambra coach Alan Hern said of his quarterback. "I'm not surprised at all. The College Park game's a rivalry, it's a fun game. But at the same time, it could be anybody. That's how we're supposed to play."

Also in the first half, Bulldogs running back James Gonsalves had eight carries for 123 yards and one touchdown on a 65-yard run.

College Park's lone touchdown came early in the first quarter as Amir Madison recovered an Alhambra fumble on the opening kickoff at Alhambra's 37-yard line. Shortly after, Falcons quarterback Waris Azizi scored on a keeper from 3 yards out for the opening points of the game.
