Mission Bay Buccaneers 55, Scripps Ranch Falcons 25
The Mission Bay Buccaneers had an impressive win on homecoming and senior night, as they beat the Scripps Ranch Falcons 55-25.
It started out with Scripps Ranch getting on the board first, thanks to a 1 yard Jordan Batts’ touchdown run. After a 27 yard field goal made by the Falcons, the game turned in favor of the Bucs.
Mission Bay scored 4 unanswered touchdowns in the first half. Joseph Duran and Charles Hicks had 1 TD run apiece and Kenyon Sims had 2 TD runs. The score was 28-10 heading into halftime.
The Falcons opened up scoring in the second half with a safety. But Joseph Duran added another 9 yard TD pass and a 4 yard scoring pass from QB Trevor Scully in the third quarter.
The Bucs went on to add another two scores to bring the final to 55-15, Mission Bay. That means they earned their first win in the City Eastern conference and are one step away from a .500 record. The Falcons, however, drop to 3-6 and are still looking to earn a league win.
Next week, the Falcons return home to face the Lincoln Hornets. The Buccaneers will travel to take on the Christian Patriots.

It’s a City Eastern conference game for the two schools. This will be a fight to the finish as both Mission Bay and Scripps Ranch are winless in league play. Bringing their equal records into this game should make for a hard fought battle.
