Alarm Clock Pep Rally Game: West Hills Wolf Pack 31, Santana Sultan 20

The Chick-Fil-A Alarm Clock Pep Rally game in Week Two no sleeper as the Mayor’s Cup continues to stay on the West Hills side.
The Wolf Pack pulling off a 31-20 victory over the Santana Sultans.

West Hills starting strong. Jovan Bea with the 30 yard touchdown run just two minutes into the game set the tone. Santana struggled to keep a hold of the ball fumbling twice in the first quarter, especially tough after converting a 4th a 2. Meanwhile Wolf Pack’s quarterback Hayden Roach threw two touchdown passes to Mitchell Carlin and Jason Villasana helping build a 21 point lead at half.

Second half the Sultan’s came out fired up as the sidelines pumped up the team and forced a West Hills 4 and out. Sultan’s Bobby Wallace would run in a touchdown and Josh Oedewalt would throw one to Anders Tolhurst to cut the West Hills lead to 10. That’s as close as the Sultan’s would get.

The Jack E. Dale Cup or the Mayor’s Cup stays with West Hills for the 5th year in a row. They have won 12 of the last 14. Up next for the Wolf Pack is their first home game of the season against Mission Bay. The Sultan’s will head to Castle Park where they will look for their first win of the season.
