This Week 4 match up is between the Vista Panthers and the Carlsbad Lancers. Vista (1-2) is looking to regroup from a tough loss to Rancho Bernardo, while Carlsbad (1-2) is trying to keep the momentum going after a huge win against Imperial.
Carlsbad showcased its explosive offense last week. The dynamic duo to look out for is senior quarterback Shea Morales and senior wide receiver Mat Spiering. Shea has already thrown for more than 300 yards this season and is expected to continue that pace. On the defensive side, Troy Cassidy will be looking for all opportunities to sack Vista quarterback John Trevino. Cassidy has become one of the county’s most talked about athletes. His ability to play both offense and defense has helped him become recruited on a national stage.
Speaking of Trevino, the Vista quarterback remains a mobile threat. He is not the only one who can run.
In the beginning of the season, Panthers head coach Dan Williams said the team planned to, “pound the ball, run the ball, put the ball in our running backs’ hands and see what they can do.”
That motto has worked well for sophomore running back Nick Stormo. Stormo rushed for nearly 100 yards during the first game of the season. Between Storm and senior Cesar Mariscal, Vista will keep grinding out the run game.
Defensively, the Panthers will utilize the strength of Donovan Pati, a 6 foot 3, 275 pound senior. This lineman is able to play on both sides of the ball making him a vital player for Vista
The last time these teams played in 2014 Vista edged Carlsbad 15-13. Will they be able to do it again, or will Carlsbad get revenge? Watch the Prep Pigskin Report Friday night at 10:30 p.m. to see what happens in this game and plenty of other games around the county.
