Week 5 City Game of the Week: Serra Conquistadors 41, San Diego Cavers 7
Tonight was the end of a 15-game winning streak for the San Diego Cavers (3-1) after a tough loss to the Serra Conquistadors (2-2), 41-7.
Off to a slow start of going back-and-forth on downs, it didn’t look like either team was going to score in the first half.
A pick-six from Brock Desta got Serra on the board, and they went for two, leading the Cavers to an 8-0 lead.
Another defensive score occurred, this time by Nathan Meyers after he recovered a fumbled backward pass, but this time the two-point conversion is no good and the Conquistadors led, 14-0.
With a little less than two minutes in the first half, Caver Mo Jackson would find the endzone from 6 yards out.
Not settling with a two-touchdown lead, Serra found time to get just one more touchdown before the break, as this time, Timmy Zabroski would throw 23 yards to Willie Peterson.
Looking to come back stronger than their first half, the Cavers’ Josiah Johnson was able to pick off Zebroski, and looked to find room to run. Unfortunately, a block in the back called the Cavers back to their own 4-yard line.
San Diego still couldn’t seem to get anything going on offense and turned the ball back over on downs.
Closing out the third quarter, Zebroski found Desta wide open, this time for 55 yards and the Conquistadors were up by 19.
Serra would get 2 more touchdowns in the fourth quarter and held the Cavers to seven points.
It was a tough loss and end to a 15-game winning streak but an exciting win for Serra High School.
Serra will travel north to Fallbrook in next week’s matchup, and San Diego will play their first league game at Patrick Henry.
The Jersey Mike’s City Game of the Week will be the Serra Conquistadors (1-2) will be hosting the defending Division V state champions – and still undefeated – San Diego Cavers (3-0) this Friday night at 6:30 p.m.
The Conquistadors are coached by Dru Smith and are looking to give the Cavers their first loss of the season.
The leading passer for the Conquistadors is senior quarterback Timmy Zebroski, who has over 200 passing yards in just two games this season. On the receiving end of almost half of those yards is junior wideout Willie Peterson. When Zebroski isn’t passing the ball, he’ll likely be handing it off to either Dustan Ellison or Brevin Lingao.

Senior quarterback Dajon Meshack has thrown for over 300 yards this season, with four of those passes being touchdowns. Leading this season for the Cavers in rushing yards is Mo Jackson (447 yards), who has scored six touchdowns this season.
