Mt. Miguel 58, El Cajon Valley 9

Posted: Updated:

On Friday the 13th, the El Cajon Valley Braves (1-6) welcomed the Mount Miguel Matadors (3-5) to their home turf. While Jason Voorhees didn’t show up for a visit, the Brave’s friendly confines quickly turned into a house of horrors, as the Matadors stormed the field and demolished El Cajon Valley 58-9.

Mount Miguel quickly got on the board with a Shemar Greene touchdown run early in the first quarter and would strike again minutes later as quarterback Eric Graham, who had a Brave defender grabbing him by the heels, made a shovel pass to Greene who slipped through defenders on his way to another touchdown. El Cajon Valley’s woes continued, as the offense struggled to gain any traction and the defense couldn’t keep up with the Matadors, while the special teams botched a snap on a punt which was returned into the endzone, giving Mount Miguel a 25-0 lead going into the second quarter.

The Matador’s offense, and more specifically Shemar Greene, continued to keep their foot firmly on the gas pedal as Greene would find the end zone three more times, including a 62 yard catch and run on a screen pass by Graham. While Graham was under pressure multiple times, he refused to show fear and even ran in his own touchdown. The defense not wanting to be left out, collected two interceptions and only allowed El Cajon Valley points on a field goal near the end of the quarter.

El Cajon Valley’s defense improved as they held the Matadors to only one touchdown in the second half. However, those points came off of a 58 yard punt return which saw Patrick Chima take a lateral from teammate Jarvis Heard and take it to the house for a touchdown. El Cajon Valley finally found the endzone in the fourth quarter on a RJ Hullum touchdown run, but it was far too late for the home team as Friday the 13th turned out to be an unlucky day for El Cajon Valley.

Mount Miguel returns home and will welcome a Granite Hills team fresh off a victory of their own, while El Cajon Valley will look to snap their losing streak against the Monte Vista Monarchs.

PREVIEW: High school football is back for another round of action, and this week will feature two teams who have stumbled out of the gate but are looking to make up ground as the Mt. Miguel Matadors (2-5) square off with the El Cajon Valley Braves (1-5).

It has been a rough going for the Braves, as they are currently on a three game losing streak and recently absorbed a 40-20 loss to the Chula Vista Spartans. During this three game slide, El Cajon Valley allowed 121 points to score and have scored 27. However, there is some promise to this squad. Deandre Kelmon threw two touchdown passes to two different receivers, while Darrel Davis was able to return a kickoff for a touchdown. If the Braves can get off to a fast start on offense, they have the talent to snap their losing streak.

Mt.Miguel has had its fair share of rough patches and are currently enduring a two game losing streak after losses to Madison and Monte Vista. The Monte Vista loss was especially tough as the Matadors were shut out 35-0 and failed to get any momentum on either side of the ball. Mugabe Miller remains the quarterback and is still a threat with his arm and leg and looks to lead his offense to a victory and improve their record.
