SANTEE (11-1-19) – On senior night out at Santee Community Stadium the Santana Sultans (9-1, 3-1) looked to get back on the right track after a bye week against the El Cajon Valley Braves (3-7, 0-4) on Friday night.

Early on the Sultans had a hard time and in fact, only would lead 14-0 after the first quarter. Scoring both touchdowns in the quarter were Brooks Moutaw who caught a 16-yard pass from Nathan Temple to lead 7-0 and a 36-yard catch by Jared Forster extend the lead by two scores.

Santana would go onto eventually lead 28-0 before the El Cajon Valley Braves managed to get on the board when Joe Malone found Clarence Johnson who raced his way for a 69-yard touchdown to make it 28-7 at half time.

On the night Temple accounted for four touchdowns as he threw for 199 yards on 14-of-26 passing.

Receiving wise Dean Lander caught 4 balls for 69 yards and score.

Both teams will make the playoffs as the Braves will wait and see where they will end up after coming in at the #8 spot in the latest power rankings of Division V. On the other side the Sultans will end up as the #1 see in the Division IV playoffs and have a first-round bye which will have them playing on the 15th of November at home against a determined to be opponent.

Complete playoff brackets will be unveiled later today on Saturday.
