South Bay Game of the Week: Eastlake Titans 29, Oceanside Pirates 7
The week 13 South Bay playoff game of the week features the Eastlake Titans (9-1) facing the Oceanside Pirates (6-5).
The challenge for the Titans will be in containing Pirate quarterback Kyrin Beachem who has thrown for 18 touchdowns. Running back Kavika Tua (only a sophomore) also poses a formidable challenge for Eastlake.
Conversely, the challenge for the Pirates will be in containing the Titan defense…perhaps the best defense in the county. The Eastlake defense is spearheaded by linebacker Josh McCurty who has wracked up 105 solo tackles. He has received a D-1 offer from Idaho. The defense is coached by Dr. Lee Price who has been successfully paired up with Eastlake Head Coach John McFadden over the last years in what has been a South Bay dynasty. It was not that long ago the McFadden-Price alliance produced a winning streak of 22 games. McFadden’s leadership style is unusual to say the least. His self-deprecating humor is an effective tool in keeping others on their toes!
On offense the Titans have a rising star in quarterback Rich Colmenero III who as only a sophomore has thrown 20 touchdown passes.
