CHULA VISTA 20, MOUNT MIGUEL 7

For the second straight year the Chula Vista Spartans traveled to Spring Valley to take on the Mount Miguel Matadors but this time they came away with the victory.

Victory for the Spartans came via old-fashioned football which head coach Howard Bannister likes as they were able to run the football the way they wanted to and on defense apply pressure.

Matadors sophomore quarterback Jacob Laverdiere was harassed the entire night by the Spartans defense which included two sacks each by Michael Macherzak and Feleapa Toilolo.

Leading 13-0 the Spartans extended their lead as Leonardo Ibarra was able to punch in from the one-yard line to extend the lead 20-0.

The Matadors finally were able to get on the board in the fourth quarter when Laverdiere found Jadd Mallard for a 66-yard score to make it 20-7.

Mount Miguel had chances all night long but couldn’t capitalize as the Spartans defense was relentless the entire night.

One of those chances came when the Matadors were able to recover a Spartan fumble on the ensuing possession after they scored. However, that chance was squashed by the Spartans defense pretty quickly.

 

CORONADO 76, EL CAJON VALLEY 0

In what looked like a pretty even matchup between the visiting El Cajon Valley Braves and the home team Coronado Islanders quickly became a route for the Islanders.

The Islanders led by second-year head coach Kurt Hines looked to move to 2-0 on the season while the Braves led by first-year coach Nick Osborn were looking for their first win on the season.

However five minutes into the contest the Islanders would go up 7-0. Coronado would once again score on a 40-yard catch and run by James Wittholf from Colten Maldonado to make it 13-0. They were not done with their scoring as Max Baker would scamper to the house for a 22-yard score to give the Islanders a 22-0 lead. Coronado by the end of the end of the first quarter would push their lead to 41-0

They would extend their lead in the second quarter as the offense continued as they would end the first half leading 55-0 on a 44-yard scoring scamper by Maldonado.

Coronado in the third quarter would receive a crowd pleasing highlight from Baker as he found the house after high tailing it 60-yards to make it 61-0.

On the night for the Islanders, Maldonado finished with 7 total touchdowns as he passed for 4 and ran for 3.
