Tri-City Christian 27 Francis Parker 12
After Mother Nature brought thunder and lightning to last night’s game between Francis Parker and Tri-City Christian on Senior Night, action resumed this afternoon at 2 p.m.
The battle for Division V supremacy ended with the TCC Eagles defeating the Lancers of Francis Parker 27-12.
TCC (7-1) is now in sole possession of first place in the Pacific league (3-0) and Division V.
Lead by freshman quarterback Kiah Reid, the Eagles were able to do something no other team has been able to do this season: move the ball against the Lancers’ vaunted defense.
Francis Parker (7-1, 1-1), came into this game as one of the most dominant teams in the county. Their defense had given up a total of 29 points all season. TCC nearly matched that total.
The Eagles, from the opening drive, were able to move the ball. Senior Christian Salibo rushed for two touchdowns, hitting the 20 touchdown mark, and eclipsed 1000 yards rushing for the season.
Before the game was postponed Friday night, the Eagles were up 7-0. Francis Parker tied the game 7-7 after the half. After that, it was all TCC.
TCC controls their own destiny and have put themselves in position to run the table in their league and Division V. They will travel to Orange Glen next week.
Francis Parker hopes to bounce back next week when they welcome Maranatha Christian.
