Mission Bay 21, Coronado 7
On Friday night, the Mission Bay Buccaneers (3-6) traveled to Coronado to face the Islanders (3-6). Both teams had their playoff hopes on the line as they battled it out.
The first half was pretty stagnant; it was tied 7-7 at halftime. However, both defenses put in work with interceptions for both sides within the last couple of minutes in the second quarter.
Picking it up in the third quarter, Mission Bay is driving down field thanks to large chunks of yards eaten up by running back Darryl Dave. This series ended with a 2 yard touchdown run on the quarterback keeper by Derrick Clark, putting the Buccaneers up 14-7.
Coronado got the ball back and marched down field in the opposite direction. Coronado’s best play of the second half came from a 43 yard pass to Matt Gillingham thrown by Jaeger Bull. However, this drive ended on a sack by Kaydence Jackson on 4th and 17.
It’s still 14-7 heading into the fourth quarter where it’s still anybody’s game. The Islanders looked poised to make a comeback after they stopped Mission Bay on 4th and goal at the 2 yard line. After turnover on downs, Coronado was moving the ball fairly well when Bull went for a bomb down field and was intercepted by Darryl Dave. This lead to a 28 yard touchdown pass to Michael Sanders, which ultimately sealed Mission Bay’s win at 21-7.
Running back and Safety Darryl Dave had 197 rushing yards as well as an interception on the night.
