Poly football coach Chris Schmoke said Thursday that it can be difficult coming off a bye week for the players to get back into swing of things and get their legs back.

The Panthers had last week off and were hosting a Boron team that was making a 113-mile trip to Pasadena.

Boron had two running backs that combined for nearly 2,000 yards heading into Saturday afternoon’s game.

But any concerns of rust were forgotten soon as Poly easily dispatched of the Bobcats, 42-12, to improve to 6-0 on the season.

Christian Henderson had a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns for the Panthers.

John Genske had arguably his best game of the season at quarterback.

Genske threw for two TDs and ran for another.

Josh Hee scooped up a ball on defense and scored as well.

“I was really proud of the way the boys practiced this week,” Schmoke said. “They really tuned in and it showed on the field. I was relieved to get back on the field and get a game in. I was happy with the outcome, and moving forward, we just hope to continue to get better on and off the field.

Poly gets back on the field Friday when it takes on Bosco Tech (3-4) at South Pasadena High School at 7.

Prep League Standings:
Poly 6-0
Trinity Classical Academy 3-2
Rio Hondo Prep 2-2
Firebaugh 0-6
