Mt. Carmel struck first on Friday with a touchdown pass from Sean Casey to TJ Sullivan to take a 6-0 lead after 1 quarter of play. Rancho Bernardo rebounded in a strong way with 23 unanswered 2nd quarter points and never looked back. Milan Grice led the Broncos on the ground with 261 yards and 3 TD’s. He also threw a TD to Christian Baker.
Fresno State commit Mark Salazar was efficient through the air going 8/9 with 119 yards and a touchdown before going down late in the 3rd quarter with a left arm/shoulder injury. Salazar appeared to be in considerable pain and did not return to the game.
TJ Sullivan led the Sundevils with 5 catches, 100 yards, and 2 TD’s.
Mt. Carmel (4-1) and Rancho Bernardo (5-0) both head into the bye week.
After allowing the visiting Helix Highlanders (2-2) a 21-0 lead midway through the 2nd quarter, the host Cathedral Catholic Dons (4-0) had serious work to do just to avoid a running clock situation.
Running back Adam Eastwood got them on the board with a touchdown just before halftime. He added another in the 2nd half, in addition to two touchdown passes from Boston College-bound Tate Haynes to Antoine Lee and Shawn Poma, respectively. Je’Von Fiagro picked off a tipped pass in the beginning of the 4th quarter and ran it back for a touchdown that gave the Dons the lead for good.
For the first time in school history, La Jolla Country Day defeated rival La Jolla High School on the football field. Senior quarterback Braxton Burmeister threw six touchdown passes to help the Torreys come back from an early 10-6 deficit.
The 2-1 Torreys will now head to University City in Week 4 hoping to extend their winning streak.
