Football: Scoreless first quarter in East L.A. Classic
Garfield received the short opening kickoff and marched to the Rough Riders' 9-yard line, but Higinio Gonzalez missed on a field goal attempt at the eight-minute mark.
Roosevelt then took over at its 20-yard line and picked up one first down before having to punt. Garfield started its second drive at its 27-yard line but had to punt from around midfield.
Roosevelt will have the ball at its own 37-yard line when the second quarter begins.
