Week 3: San Clemente Tritons 13, La Costa Canyon Mavericks 12

Week 3 in La Costa Canyon was a nail-biter as the San Clemente Tritons snuck past the Mavericks, 13-12.

This one started off slow as Nick Billoups would find the end zone on a 23-yard rush which would be the only touchdown of the first half.

The defense would be the story of this game as the Mavericks forced multiple tackles for loss and both teams tallied a couple sacks.

Midway through the third quarter, the Mavs would take their first lead of the game as Marshal Eucker found George Montgomery for a 15-yard touchdown pass.

Shortly after, the Mavs would force a safety, moving ahead, 12-7.

Things would start to heat up late in the fourth quarter as the Tritons would strike a comeback and Billoups would find the end zone a second time and this time it would put them into a 13-12 lead.

The Mavericks would give it everything they had but on a tipped pass, the Tritons’ London Hannah would seal the game with an interception with less than two minutes to go.

This one would come down the wire as the San Clemente Tritons remain undefeated heading into Week 4 at 3-0.
