REVIEW: After a very unlucky and interesting Friday the 13th Homecoming at Point Loma, the Mira Mesa Marauders claimed the unfortunate stigma that today holds by losing to the Pointers (35-6). The Marauders gained their second loss of the season (5-2), as the Pointers improve theirs to (4-3).
Following an uneventful first quarter, Pointers Bryan Yepez starts out the night by punching in a 4 yard TD run, (7-0) Point Loma. Just a few minutes later, Malik Moore makes a 16 yard completion from QB Kyle Grady, setting up Josh Ball for his first of many TDs of the night.
At the end of the halftime show, Point Loma reveals their Homecoming king and queen, Kyle Johnson and Avin Niknafs. Nevertheless, the Pointers are just getting started. At the start of the third quarter, Josh Ball fights his way into the end zone from the one yard line, (21-0) Pointers.
Once the Marauders had 21 points against them, they said enough was enough. Wide receiver Artyom Harr completes an incredible one handed 74 yard TD catch from Noah Tumblin. Mira Mesa finds their spot on the board, as the Pointers still lead (21-6).
As the fourth quarter rolls around, JL Skinner intercepts the ball bringing it to the two yard line where workhorse Josh Ball scores for his third TD of the night. Special thoughts go out to the Marauders defensive linemen Larrenzzo Amos, as he is taken off the field in an ambulance with seven minutes left within the game.
