Week 4 East County Game of the Week: Christian Patriots 43, Monte Vista Monarchs 6
Friday night the Monte Vista Monarchs welcomed in the Christian Patriots as both teams came into the game with a 1-2 record.
We pick this one up in the 2nd quarter, the Patriots Nate Stine sneaking this one right through the Monarchs line and it is 7-0 Christian.
A little while later, its the Patriots again this time it is Christian Salicup catching the bullet pass for the score and it is 14-0.
But he isn’t done yet, here is Salicup one more time as he takes the handoff and tiptoes right inside for another score.
3rd quarter now and apparently third time has a bit of an extra charm for Nate Stine as he goes down the sidelines to give the Patriots the 33-0 lead.
But, a Monarch never goes down without a fight. Here is Isaiah Gardner plowing through the Patriots to avoid the shutout.
The final 43-6 Christian. They head home to face Central while Monte Vista heads to Imperial.
