Week 3: Madison Warhawks 56, El Capitan Vaqueros 27
The Madison Warhawks flew past the El Capitan Vaqueros, 56-27, in their Week Three matchup.
In what turned out to be a one-sided affair, the Warhawks’ offense was too much to handle.
The first play from scrimmage was an 80-yard touchdown run for Kenan Christon. On the Warhawks’ second drive it was Daniel Stokes who took the ball to the house. Stokes, in at quarterback, scrambled 27 yards for the touchdown.
After a Warhawk interception, Christon scored for the second time in the game. Christon ran it in again this time from 19 yards out. At the end of the first quarter the score was 28-0 Madison.
The second quarter started with more of the same with Mario Alves picking up a fumbled snap and hitting Tyson Gangstad for a 16-yard touchdown.
The Vaqueros were able to get on the board when Chris Summers ran it in from two yards out for the touchdown. On El Capitan’s next possession, Summers ran it in again from two yards out making the score 49-14 Madison.
Christon finished with three carries for 150 yards and three touchdowns.
El Capitan drops to 0-3 and the Madison Warhawks improve to 3-0.
Even with college football starting this weekend, the most exciting football games are happening right here in San Diego County. The Week 3 matchup between the El Capitan Vaqueros (0-2) and the Madison Warhawks (2-0) is one of marquee matchups of the week.
These two schools have built a short history between one another. Over the last five seasons, they have seen each other four times. Most recently, last season, where Madison was able to push past El Capitan.
The Vaqueros are coming off a very close game against Mater Dei Catholic.
Head Coach Ron Burner said, “We can’t go back and change the result, let’s move on we gotta get after it.”
One of the offensive stars so far for the Vaqueros is Senior Yaphet Yokley.
Yokley is a three-year varsity starter and has emerged as one of the team’s leader.
Burner said, “(Yokley) has been around and knows what we expect. His leadership is awesome.”
As for the matchup against Madison, Burner said, “They (Madison) are a machine. It will take our A game.”
The Warhawks look to stay perfect on the season. Their first two weeks featured wins against Rancho Bernardo and Bonita Vista.
In Week 1, it was the Warhawk defense that held a talented Rancho Bernardo squad to only 15 points. In Week 2, it was the offense which came alive by putting 62 points on the board against Bonita Vista.
Quarterback Mario Alves has been a driving force for the Warhawk offense. Alves is a returning starter at the position and looks to lead Madison to an Open Division playoff birth for the second year in a row.
It will be a battle for both teams on Friday.
