Morse Tigers 43, Patrick Henry Patriots 0
The Morse Tigers couldn’t have started this season any better.
Not only are they 2-0 for the first time in six years, but they’ve won both games in dominating fashion. This week’s dominance resulted in a 43-0 win for the Tigers over the Patrick Henry Patriots.
Morse already has plenty of players that will be big names by the end of this year, but they may have to add Jaycob Hicks to that list. Both Hicks and fellow running back Kenny Chaney were big factors in the Tigers’ early lead. Each ran in a touchdown to put the Tigers up 13-0.
Patrick Henry looked strong to open the game, playing hard hitting defense and moving the ball well. Unfortunately for the Patriots, a tough second quarter call may have taken away any momentum the team was gaining.
A Patriot punt looked like it hit a Morse player on the leg, and after a long skirmish in the end zone, Patrick Henry finally came out with the ball and six points on the board. After talking to each other, the referees changed the score to a touchback. What could’ve been a tied game quickly became a two-possession Tigers’ lead that continued to grow.
Morse is looking like one of the best teams in San Diego. These Tigers have a chance to complete one of the best seasons in school history. A chance to become 3-0 AND beat the rival Lincoln Hornets would be an incredible way to keep that hope alive.
Meanwhile, the Patrick Henry Patriots have an opportunity to turn things around and get their first win of the year against Monte Vista.

PREVIEW: The Morse Tigers and Patrick Henry Patriots had nearly opposite outcomes in their first games of the year, but both sides know that anything can happen when week two of the CIF football season kicks off this Friday.
The Tigers will be hosting back-to-back games after last weeks 39-0 win over the Mount Miguel Matadors. Sharmar Martin, Isaiah Thompson, and Julian Stanford all scored multiple touchdowns to lead the way for Morse. All three players have a strong chance of becoming big names as the season continues.
Patrick Henry will have to play much better than last week’s 42-0 loss to Mira Mesa if they want to get a win on the road. Senior quarterback Ethan Gomez threw and ran for almost every yard the Patriots were able to get on offense. If the rest of his team can step up around him then the Patriots will have a strong chance to pull off an upset.
Can Patrick Henry improve to 1-1 or will the Morse Tigers secure a 2-0 record for the first time in seven years? Tune into the Prep Pigskin Report this Friday at 11 PM to find out.
