Madison Warhawks 48, Point Loma Pointers 0
What appeared on paper as one of the best games in San Diego, turned out to be one sided affair. The Madison Warhawks walked all over the Point Loma Pointers 48-0.
For the Warhawks, they dominated in every facet of the game. Quarterback Terrell Carter and his favorite target, Brandon Lewis, connected multiple times for points. Carter picked apart a strong Pointers defense and looked every bit the part as one of the top quarterbacks in San Diego. Running back Erick Buchanon had a noteworthy game as well, setting the tone with over 80 yards and a touchdown on the opening drive. There is one player on defense that I wanted to highlight, Safety Travis Hess. Hess was flying around blowing up any Pointer who made it into the secondary.
It was a rough night for the Pointers. The offense, led by Jaylin Griffin, couldn’t get anything going all night. Point Loma also committed a slew of penalties early on that killed a lot of drives. Also, the Pointers inability to throw the ball down field was a major issue because you could tell Madison was really stacking the box.
Madison, who improves to a record of 5-2, will play La Jolla next week. Point Loma, who falls to 4-3, will play Scripps Ranch. If you’d like to see highlights of the game, go to KUSI.com and check out our RAW page.
The Point Loma Pointers (4-2) welcome the Madison Warhawks (4-2) this Friday for an afternoon game. These two teams are no strangers to one another. Last year in the playoffs, the Warhawks sent the Pointers home early in the divisional round. If you’re into these kind of stats, the Warhawks are 5-0-1 against Point Loma over their last 6 meetings.
The Point Loma Pointers, coming off a 56-27 win over Hoover last week, will once again be playing at home in front of their energetic fan base. One of the most important players on the field for Point Loma is running back Jaylen Griffin. Griffin, known by some as Slash, had two touchdowns and over 150 yards rushing in the first quarter alone against the Cardinals. Griffin, who’s been battling a minor ankle injury over the past couple weeks, is feeling 100 percent and is looking for a big game. Quarterback Brenden Torrence, who is a serious threat on the ground, is going to have to stretch the field vertically every now and then to keep Warhawks defense honest. If the Pointers can dominate the time of possession with their running game, they might be able to keep this Warhawks offense from getting into rhythm.
The Warhawks are hot, but haven’t won a game on the road this season. Madison have playmakers of their own on offense. Quarterback Terrell Carter is one of the best in the county at his position. Carter has 14 passing touchdowns this season. Running back Erick Buchanan and wide receiver Brandon Lewis are two players you don’t want to sleep on either.
If you can’t make the afternoon game, catch the highlights at 10:30 p.m. You can also follow us on social media at @redjacketarmy.
