CHRISTIAN 48, SANTANA 7

Both squads came into the contest undefeated winning their first two ballgames and this had chatter all week as it was supposed to be a battle of two exciting quarterbacks.

However, the Sultans would be without Nathan Temple who was injured after breaking his collarbone against Serra. In the first couple games for the Sultans, he had thrown 5 scores for 370 yards.

With the absence of Temple, the Patriots were able to take advantage as Owen Easley for Christian stole the show as he threw a couple scores and ran for another couple in the victory. The defense for the Patriots did the rest as they limited Santana to 77 yards of total offense and only 2 first downs the entire ballgame.

Early on both teams held each other and things proved to be slow moving but Easley for Christian would finally get the scoring breakthrough rolling as he was able to find his way to the end zone from 2-yards out to give the Pats a 7-0 lead. He would score the second touchdown to give Christian a 14-0 lead. They would score again to take a 21-0 lead as Alex Gonzalez found his to the house for a 55-yard score.

Leading 21-0 still in the first quarter the Patriots defense took no prisoners as they again forced the Sultans to punt away. Christian at the break would lead 28-0 as Gonzalez was able to haul in a 12-yard pass from Easley.

The Sultans in the second half would finally get on the board when the defense flushed Easley out and had him down for a loss when he lost the ball and Colton Snipes scooped it up and took it to the house from 38-yards out to make it 34-7. Christian, however, wouldn’t go away offensively as they scored two more times on a 38-yard pass and catch by Jack St. Fluer from Easley and a Javier Jimenez 8-yard rushing score.

For Christian, Easley on the night threw for 195 yards while Gonzalez ran for 134 yards. Overall they rolled up 495 total offensive yards on the night against the Sultans.
