Santa Fe Christian came, they saw and they conquered their game against San Pasqual this evening. That’s right the Santa Fe Eagles squeezed a 14-12 victory over the San Pasqual Eagles. Both Eagles faced off at Torrey Pines High School. Not only was last nights game the CIF Division III semi-final game- it was also our Tri-City Medical North County Game of the Week.
In the first quarter of tonight’s semi-final game, both San Pasqual and Santa Fe Christian’s defense were alert and pro-active. With both teams favoring running and not passing the ball this season, offense had a difficult time breaking through defense. Difficult or not, both teams were determined to inch their way into the end zone. However by the third quarter, Santa Fe woke up and picked up the pace on offense.
With very minimal action in the end zones, there were 4 touchdowns worth highlighting. In the first quarter with 0’s on the board, Santa Fe’s Luke Sanders picks up a quick 5yd touchdown run. Following Sander’s TD, quarterback Michael Linguadoca sends a pass to teammate Matt Stevenson where he caught, ran and scored a 67yd touchdown. At this point in the game, Santa Fe is up 14-0.
It isn’t long before quarterback, Weston Erdman catches the score bug and collaborates with teammate, Conor Davis for the 86yd catch and run touchdown. Before the end of the 3rd quarter, San Pasqual has more to give, Weston Erdman sets up Shawn Carter with a 37yd run- Carter picks up the slack and runs 4yds for the Eagles touchdown. With both teams surrendering the opportunity to score once more, the game quickly ended 14-12 Santa Fe Christian.
