BLYTHE — Anthony Hellum scored three touchdowns and intercepted three passes to lead the Central Union High School football team to a 21-7 win over Palo Verde in Imperial Valley League play here Friday.
"I feel we played better," said Spartan coach Joe Apodaca. "We executed our plays better, but we still have some edges to smooth out."
Hellum's first score came on a 10-yard run in the first quarter. He then caught a 45-yard pass from Manuel Ponce to put the Spartans up 14-0 in the second quarter.
Central took a 14-7 lead at the break and added its final score in the third quarter when Hellum returned a punt 65 yards for a touchdown.
