Eagles receiver Uriel Hill wins a footrace with Houston Lee's Kiston Stewart after hauling in a pass from quarterback Valor Ojeda. Hill bolted 44 yards to the end zone for his team's first score.
0311Pasadena High senior Uriel Hill scored four touchdowns – three on long pass plays and another on an 82-yard interception return – as the Eagles rolled over Houston Lee 56-13 on Thursday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium in the 2014 season-opener for both schools.

Hill staked Pasadena to a quick two TD lead by dashing to the end zone twice in the opening six minutes, both times on passes from junior quarterback Valor Ojeda.

Ojeda, who fired four TD passes in the game, hooked up with Hill again late in the third quarter. The TD passes from Ojeda to Hill covered 44, 49 and 67 yards.

Just two minutes after his third-quarter TD jaunt, Hill picked off a Lee pass and returned it 82 yards for the Eagles’ final TD of the night.

Senior Melvin Reyes tacked on three rushing TDs for the Eagles with runs of 9, 7 and 15 yards. Pasadena’s other TD scored on a 34-yard pass from Ojeda to Nick Guerra.

Ojeda completed only five passes in the game, but four went for TDs. He finished with 205 yards through the air. Pasadena did not commit a turnover.

All three of Hill’s receptions went for TDs and totaled 160 yards. Reyes finished with 113 yards rushing on 15 carries.

Two other Pasadena ISD schools opened the season on Thursday night but both ended up on the losing end of lopsided scores in road contests. South Houston fell to Alief Elsik 41-10 and Memorial sustained a 62-87 beating at the hands of powerful Summer Creek.

Dobie opens the season on Friday in a 7 p.m. feature game against Deer Park at Veterans Memorial. Rayburn plays host to Fort Bend Kempner on Saturday at 6 p.m.
