FRANCIS PARKER 42, EL CAJON VALLEY 13

The El Cajon Valley Braves were hoping for a good outcome on Friday night as they hosted the Lancers of Francis Parker. The reason being is they have a new head coach in Nick Osborne who took over this season and also has quite the pedigree himself being a former San Diego State Aztec.

However, the Lancers led by Matt Morrison had other ideas and took advantage fully right away as they set the tone by recovering an early onside kick. With the excellent field position, the Lancers behind Ryan Sanborn made their way to the Braves 6-yard line before Sanborn crashed his way into the end zone to give the Lancers an early 7-0 lead. Francis Parker added another score on a touchdown pass from Sanborn to Jonathan Gordon.

The Braves tried to put some points on the board before the end of the first half but were only able to manage a single first down when sophomore quarterback Joe Malone found Brandon Robinson for a 46-yard reception. Unfortunately, that would be all they would get as the Lancers defense stopped the Braves offense.

Francis Parker would eventually lead 28-0 at intermission thanks to another Sanborn score, this time a 4-yard scamper into the end zone.

Things didn’t change in the second half as Sanborn connected on a 33-yard pass to Rusty Childs. They would score again after an interception as Sanborn found the end zone again for a 3-yard run to make it 42-0.

The Braves finally got on the board in the fourth quarter when Damarius Hyde punched his way in for a 1-yard score. They would get another chance on offense as they quickly regained possession and once again took advantage as Malone scampered his way through the Lancers defense for a 40-yard score.

Both teams went back and forth as Morse would only lead 14-0 at the break as Thompson scored on a short play.

Morse would blow the game wide open in the third quarter when they were able to score three touchdowns despite only touching the ball four times. Stafford would score twice after Martin added one.

Stafford started the scoring in the third quarter with a pick six that went for 51-yards. He would add another on a kickoff return that went for 53-yards to give the Tigers a 33-0 lead in the third.
