El Camino Wildcats 13 at Torrey Pines Falcons 17

El Camino 13 at Torrey Pines 17

If we took away the records and just watched Torrey Pines and El Camino square off like they did tonight you wouldn’t know which team team was 5-2 and which team was 2-5. Coming off a last second win in their previous game the Falcons confidence had to be sky high coming into this one and man did it show. 

They got on the scoreboard first when kicker Luc D’arcy booted a 42 yard field goal through the uprights to give the Falcons a earlier first quarter lead. The Falcons were on their way to making the score 6-0, but that’s when the wildcats Ricky Villagomez  came flying off the edge to block the field goal attempt and give his team the momentum in the second quarter. El Camino would take full advantage of that special teams play and cash it in with a 26 yard touchdown run by the wildcats running back Chris brown. Feeling like he needed to step up Torrey pines running back Matt Feeler responded with a 35 yard cutback run to put the Falcons back on to going into halftime. 

El Camino would add two field goals by Jacob Voce to start off the forth quarter and it looked as if they would be the last points on the board for the night. That is until Ben Bitters found the magic, he would go 60 yards in less then two minutes picking apart the wildcat cat D as if he was waiting to show his flare for the dramatic. Just like last week Bitters would strike in the last seconds of the game hitting tight end Michael Gadinis for the nine yard touchdown with just seven seconds left on the clock.

It was by far the best game I have seen all year and to put the icing on the cake for young Ben Bitters he was also crowned home coming king tonight as well, how many people can say that in a lifetime. Falcons win 17-13 over El Camino

PREVIEW 

Winning during the non conference portion of your schedule always helps when it comes to looking good on paper. But winning week in and week out during your league is a true mark of a champion. John Robert’s and his El Camino wildcats are on the verge of killing a 5-0 start by possibly dropping the first two games in league and falling on a three game losing streak. The question for Friday night will be can Torrey Pines take down the wounded wildcats. 

Now on the other side of the field the Falcons  are hoping to use the home field to continue the success of last week. Overall Torrey has had some struggles this season, they have only being able to scratch out two wins in seven games so far this season. But a 1-1 league record has things looking up in their favor. They survived a nail bitter last week so having another tough conference game shouldn’t be to much to overcome. 

We have questions all over the field of this one. Will the wildcats right the ship or have the Falcons found their stride at the right time, like a great man somewhere said "that’s why they play the games". See you in Del Mar under the lights.
