There were no shortage of highlights and exciting plays during this Friday night action between the Mira Mesa Marauders and the Madison Warhawks. It may have been a blowout on paper, but after a rough start the fans had a lot of entertainment from both sides. In the end the score may say it was one sided, but the effort was present on each side of the ball all night.
Early on the Warhawks established their dominance and pulled away in the first half. Heading into halftime up five touchdowns, and eventually improving to (8-1) record on the season. Lead by their two stars in the back field, Erick Buchanan and Kenan Christon. The two only played the first half, but accounting for five of the team's total 7 touchdowns. The two for 225 yards on just a combined 15 carries in only one half of action. It is good building this momentum heading into next week’s task, heading to Cathedral Catholic to take on the undefeated Dons to end the regular season.
The Marauders will be looking to end their season on a good note next week as they travel to Morse High School. Tonight’s solo touchdown was scored by Giovanni Herrera, a 5 yarder punched in during a good third quarter drive. Now the only one game that matters and all should be focus on, is next weeks. Making sure it’s their best effort of the year, sending off their seniors on the best note possible.
