Castle Park 31, Clairemont 17
It’s not easy beating Castle Park in Trojan territory. Clairemont started the game strong. After a 15-yard penalty was added to Alex Beaubien’s 32-yard kick off return, the Chieftains were near Trojan territory. The Chieftains showed a little trickery when Beabien faked the punt and ran 13-yards to pick up the first down. Soon after, Carter Schu put the Chieftains on the board first with a 27-yard touchdown catch from quarterback RJ McCoy.
It was just the beginning for Trojan quarterback Jordan Danielson and one of his most reliable targets, Luqman Barcoo. Danielson found Barcoo for the 84-yard touchdown catch and run to tie the game at 7-7. In the beginning of the second quarter, Danielson once again found Barcoo, this time for a 58-yard completion. This would set up a Castle Park field goal and put the Trojans up 10-7.
In the third quarter …it was the dynamic duo again. This time, Danielson tossed a 56-yard touchdown pass to Barcoo to extend the Trojan lead to 17-7. Clairemont kicked a field goal in the beginning of the fourth to make it a one touchdown game. 17-10 Castle Park.
Moving to the fourth quarter, Barcoo (did I mention he’s pretty good?) found the end zone once again. His 32-yard touchdown put the Trojans up 24-10. Clairemont would go on to score another touchdown to bring the game a little bit closer. Trojan running back Alex Madrid, who also had a great night …had other plans. Madrid ran in a 4-yard touchdown and close out the game with 31-17 win for the Trojans.
The Trojans are now undefeated at home. Barcoo finished the night with 198 total yards and 3 touchdowns. Danielson was equally impressive, throwing for nearly 300 passing yards and 2 touchdowns.
