The 2017 regular season is gone with the wind! Classical Academy traveled into Orange Glen and defeated the Patriots 35-14.
This was a great bounce-back win for Classical Academy after the tough loss the Caimans took to Bishop’s last week.
It seemed as if Classical Academy was mainly sticking to the ground game besides when James Duncan hooked up with Aidan Sutherland for a 22-yard touchdown in the 4th quarter.
The defense of Caimans was also quite impressive as they did not allow Orange Glen to score in the second half after the 14 they put up in the first half.
Orange Glen may not have finished with the best record, but as they battled injuries and fatigue throughout the season, there are many positives looking ahead to the 2018 season.
It will be interesting to see in 2018 if the Patriots will stick with the Sophomore quarterback, Cael Patterson, as he had two rushes for over 20 yards in the 4th quarter.
Highlights of this game and many others from across the county can be found on YouTube under our PPR Raw Playlist.
The Prep Pigskin Report will continue to take place throughout the rest of the 2017 post-season as we will be covering games from all across the county.
PREVIEW: Somehow it is already the final week of the regular season and we have a full slate of the Prep Pigskin Report.
In Escondido, California, there will be a Coastal League matchup between the Classical Academy Caimans and the Orange Glen Patriots.
The Patriots will be honoring their senior players as it will be the final home game of their careers at Orange Glen. It is also Pop Warner Night, so there should be an impressive turnout of future Patriots attending the game.
The visiting Caimans have an overall record of 3-5, and are 0-2 in their league. Last week, they took a loss to the very dominant Bishop’s Knights who lead the Coastal League standings with a league record of 4-0 and an overall record of 8-0.
For Orange Glen, it may not have been the season for which they had hoped. Their current league record is 0-3 with an overall record of 1-8. However, I am quite sure that a win over Classical Academy this Friday would end their season on a peak.
As always, throughout the season, you can be sure that KUSI will feature the Prep Pigskin Report on Friday Night at 10:30 p.m. For the high school football fanatics like myself, you can visit our website and YouTube channel for more of the PPR.
