Friday nights matchup between the Sweetwater Red Devils and the Carlsbad Lancers, started off with a defensive battle. Both offenses struggled to get going early and after one quarter the score was 7-0 Carlsbad, after scoring a touchdown on the ground by #7 Ryan Menker. Both defenses started the second quarter playing well, until halfway through the second quarter. The Carlsbad Lancers forced an interception in Red Devil territory, which lead to a 32-yard touchdown pass to #20 Asa Turner. Shortly after the touchdown was converted the Lancers added a defensive touchdown with a quick pick six and another touchdown before halftime winded down. This put the Lancers up 28-0 against the Red Devils at half. After halftime the Red Devils tried to bounce back from a tough first half, but struggled to perform on the field. The Carlsbad Lancers began to gain confidence and started to show some fire scoring three more touchdowns in the second half of the game. The Red Devils were shut out tonight by the Lancers 49-0. Both teams fought hard and kept the game interesting until the final minute. For full highlights catch the Prep Pigskin Report live on Friday nights at 10:30 on KUSI.

Friday night’s matchup takes us out to Sweetwater High School where the Red Devils host the Carlsbad Lancers.
The Red Devils are coming fresh off a bye week and are ready to get their season back on track after a week one loss to University City 47-12. The Red Devils struggled early against the run, and the Lancers are a coming off a 170 yard performance by senior Joel Lazero that helped the Lancers take down the Saints from St. Augustine. The ground game was not the only thing alive last week for the Lancers; Quarterback Troy Bloomquist had over 120 yards passing and a TD.
The Lancers want to continue on their winning ways this week and a huge part is their defense. After going down 14-0 early, the Lancers defense bounced back with a huge safety in the second quarter that boosted them to hold the Saints scoreless for the remaining three quarters, and win the game 22-14 and improve to 2-0. Can the Lancers continue on their winning ways or will the Sweetwater Red Devils pull off the upset?
