SANTEE – It was a night of celebration of pomp and circumstance as it was homecoming for the Sultans. On homecoming you usually play an opponent you don’t have a tough time with. For the first quarter and even half the Sultans couldn’t shake the El Cajon Valley Braves.

The Braves actually scored first and led 7-0 before a miscue of a bad snap of a punt went over the head an Ian Litten recovered it in the end zone to knot the score 7-7. ‘

El Cajon Valley would again march down but couldn’t punch it in and would retake the lead on a field goal to make it 10-7. However it was deja-vu again as once again they would give another one back as again a bad snap on a punt sailed over the punters head but this time Landon Wood recovered it to give the Sultans a 14-10 lead which would be the score at the break.

At the break the half time festivities occurred and this gave the Sultans a chance to regroup which they did in the second half.

In the second half the fireworks continued as the Sultans completely dominated the contest as they scored 36 points in the second half.

Josh Oedewaldt for the Sultans found Cameron Kane for scores of 11 and 41 yards which went with his 82 yards receiving. Litten on the ground scampered for 63 yards and a score.

The defense for the Sultans was led by Wood who tallied 12 tackles a couple scores as well. Cameron LaRiccia would have a key interception to help give the Sultans excellent field position in the second half.

With the game in hand the Sultans brought in Sophomore JV quarterback Nathan Temple who on the night would throw a touchdown and finish with 47 yards on 3 of 4 passing.
