Week 10 North County Game of the Week: Carlsbad Lancers 24, La Costa Canyon Mavericks 7
The Carlsbad Lancers (5-3, 3-2) took the lead 13-12 in the 25th Annual Rotary Cup with a 24-7 over La Costa Canyon (6-2, 2-2) at Bob McCallister Field on Friday night in the Prep Pigskin Report North County Game of the Week.
A bad hand off exchange on the first play of the game set the tone for the both the Carlsbad defense and La Costa Canyon offense when it was recovered by Bryce Vassau and returned inside the 5-yard line. The Mavericks would hold the lancers to a field goal, but the defense being on the field for more than two-thirds of the game eventually wore them down.
LCC would score on a double reverse pass in the 4th quarter to cut the lead to 10-7 late in the 4th, yet Carlsbad would answer two late touchdowns passes from Keoni Quintana to Cole Wright, along with an interception by University of Washington commit Asa Turner, which was too much to overcome for LCC.
Two schools separated by just 11 miles face off in the Prep Pigskin Report North County Game of the Week. Carlsbad (4-3, 2-2) welcomes in La Costa Canyon (6-1, 2-1). Both teams had their games last week declared no contests because of the thunder and lightning storm.
