Ramona Bulldogs 31 at Mt. Carmel Sun Devils 45

If I had to pick a word to describe what I saw tonight at Mt.Carmel that word would be dominate. Cause that’s what Lucas Johnson was absolutely dominate. Normally when a game starts off with two pick sixes you would think a since of panic would have set in on the homecoming crowd or  the sidelines would become a little antsy. That’s was not the case for the Sun Devils and Lucas Johnson. After having two of his first three passes picked off by Ramona’s Preston Stacy and returned for touchdowns, Johnson came firing back. He hadn’t thrown a pick all season and after the first two it looked like he was determined not to make the same mistake three times. Instead of putting it in the air he kept it himself and ran in a ten yard option for his first score. With the momentum swinging back the sun devils way Johnson would then go 71 yards for his second touchdown to tie the score up at fourteen. Now as if he hadn’t made up for the two picks with two scores of his own on the ground, Johnson would then go for another and another and as DJ Khaleed would Say another one. That’s right five rushing touchdowns, the most impressive coming on a 85 yard run where it seemed as if vintage Michael Vick had momentarily suited up for the Sun Devils.  

This game would end 45-31 Mt. Carmel, but the stat line for Johnson still couldn’t tell you how dominate he was. It’s not often you hear a quarterback go for 14 carries 309 yards and 5 touchdowns on the ground and 13-26 and another touchdown with a 129 yards passing and find yourself asking that’s it? Yea that good. 



With all the non-conference wins and losses out of the way, it’s time for the best in the county to rise to the top in their league. The Palomar league will have two of it’s top teams battling head to head in week one of conference play.  

Friday at Mt.Carmel we will get a good look at two of this years silver pigskin watch list players. The Ramona Bulldogs watch list nominee is senior quarterback and captain Marco Cobian. Marco has shown through the first five games that he has the ability to be one of the last few remaining on the deck of the USS midway when it’s time to hand out the award. He’s thrown for just under nine hundred yards with nine touchdowns and only three picks. 

I said there was two players playing on this list and the other is Mt. Carmel quarterback Lucas Johnson. The right handed senior is hoping to continue his non-conference excellence, he has thrown ten touchdowns and not a single interception so far this season. The home field advantage should should play well for Johnson, the last game in front of the home crowd he showed his duel threat ability by going for 135 yards on the ground and two rushing touchdowns. 

Ramona head coach Damon Baldwin will have his defense ready to go and looking to knock off conference foe Mt. Carmel.
