The Matadors of Mount Miguel will be moving on to the Quarterfinals of the CIF San Diego Section Division III Playoffs as they defeated the Escondido Cougars 27-18.
This matchup began in an unorthodox fashion when Mount Miguel had a snap fly south which resulted in a safety for Escondido.
Another interesting play that took place was when Escondido attempted an onside kick, but Ulices Monie of Mount Miguel ran it all the way back for a Matador touchdown.
At the end of the night, the story for Mount Miguel was their Senior running back, Shemar Greene. This young man was a freight train as he finished with over 100 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Matadors hope that Shemar Greene will come back just as hot next week when they have to take on the Southwest Eagles from El Centro, CA.
The Eagles are undefeated and do not plan on having their season end next week when they face the Matadors.
The Prep Pigskin Report will be back again next week at 10:30 p.m. on KUSI to continue coverage of the CIF San Diego Section Playoffs. For more PPR, be sure to check out our social media accounts @redjacketarmy and @KUSIPPR.
