The Madison Warhawks fast pace offense proved tough for the Mt. Miguel Matadors. Although Mt. Miguel played tough, Madison’s strength gave them the upper hand in a 48-12 Warhawks win.
Madison scored their first touchdown on the first drive, with quarterback Mario Alves’ six yard pass to Treyvone Anderson. Although Mt. Miguel’s defensive back Eric Graham intercepted the Warhawks shortly after, it was not enough to convert.
Starting the second quarter, Alves threw a 66 yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Daniel Stokes. This would not be the only time Alves would pass to Stokes, as he would go on to score a 70 yard touchdown later in the first half. The Madison Warhawks were up 34-0 at the half.
The Matadors first score did not come until the third quarter, in which quarterback Mugabe Miller threw to Santino Pacheco for an 80 yard touchdown.
Unfortunately, Mt. Miguel’s effort was not enough to stop the constant pressure of the Madison Warhawks. With a last second score from the Matadors, the Warhawks took home the 36 point win.
The Warhawks continue their victory streak at 5-0, while the Matadors are now 2-4. Madison will go on to play Cathedral Catholic at home in a battle of the two teams that won state championships in 2016. Mt. Miguel will face off next week at Monte Vista.

The Matadors are 2-3 and are coming off a close win with Imperial. With Mt. Miguel’s winning momentum, will the Warhawks overlook the Matadors after beating the 3rd best team in Utah in a close one?

Leading the offense is junior RB Kenan Christon who has run for 453 yards and 6 touchdowns, while averaging 16.2 yards per carry. However, the Matadors have not lost a game with more than a 10-point margin, which attributes to their defense. Leading the defense is junior FS and WR, Santino Pacheco. He leads the team in tackles with 25 solo tackles. The Matadors have kept their opponents under 26 points in all of their games.
