The Aztecs gave a strong fight in the second half but ultimately it wasn't enough to beat The Cougars, with a final score of 36-22.
The Aztecs entered the game strong, Quarterback Anthony Parra found David Vargas in the end zone however not having the complete control of the ball it was called back to the 57 yard line. The next play would be a fumble recovered by San Ysidro, which would lead to a touchdown on 4th down.
