It looks as if history repeated itself for Week Two of the Prep Pigskin Report with Friday night’s match-up between the San Pasqual Golden Eagles (1-1) and the Vista Panthers (1-1).
Last year, both teams crossed paths for Week Two and Vista came out on top with a 24-14 victory.
The Golden Eagles tried to gain redemption tonight against the Panthers, but fell just short to them 14-7.
The Panthers garnered their first win of the season off of tonight’s victory, which puts them in a good place as they head into Rivalry Week for their upcoming match-up against the Rancho Buena Vista Longhorns (1-1).
San Pasqual came out tenacious in the first quarter and scored the first points of the game. Led by senior quarterback Westin Erdman, the keeper set up a nice handoff to senior running back Saud Carrillo for a four-yard touchdown.
It took Vista until the second quarter to answer back, but the Panthers got off an easy touchdown from sophomore slot receiver Desmond Taua for two-yards.
Vista sealed the deal with another touchdown in the second half, garnering their first win on the season.
They will host Rancho Buena Vista (1-1) next week for a classic rivalry showdown.
San Pasqual will travel back home where they will host the Ramona Bulldogs (2-0) for a non-conference game.

PREVIEW: Now that Week One jitters are long-gone for prep players across San Diego County, Week Two brings tough, competitive football match-ups that the Prep Pigskin Report is excited to cover.
This week the Red Jackets will be traveling up to North County to cover the non-conference match-up between the San Pasqual Golden Eagles (1-0) and the Vista Panthers (0-1).
Both teams are experiencing déjà vu as they prepare for this week’s game. Last season Vista and San Pasqual faced each other during Week Two, but with the Panthers coming out on top with a 24-14 win.
Will history repeat itself? Or will the Eagles soar to 2-0 on the year?
San Pasqual started their season on a high note after not only beating Granite Hills in a lopsided 52-7 victory, but also gaining redemption from last years’ loss to them in the first round of the CIF Division II Playoffs.
Vista is coming in to Week Two on the other side of the spectrum, hungry for their first win. The Panthers fell to San Marcos High School last week 38-22.
There is no injury report for either team at this time. Both schools are expected to play with full rosters.
