The 5th ranked Torrey Pines Falcons gave a great effort on Friday night at Ed Burke Field, while hosting the top-ranked and undefeated Mission Hills Grizzlies. The Falcons went into the half with a 10-7 lead in a game that featured several lead changes. On 4th and 10 from the 12 yard line, quarterback Jason Heine scrambled around before finding Jack Nelson in the back of the end zone. Just over a minute remained, but the Falcons called timeout and decided to go for the two-point conversion and possibly the win, instead of tying the game up and playing for overtime. The snap was bobbled which led to Jason Heine being sacked. The Grizzlies recovered the ensuing onside kick and held on for a 24-23 win to remain unbeaten. Both teams will head into the week 11 with big rivalry games on the schedule. The Falcons will host La Costa Canyon (6-3) and the Grizzlies will return home to host San Marcos (8-1).
