Week 7: San Pasqual Golden Eagles 14, Ramona Bulldogs 6
The San Pasqual Golden Eagles were able to scrape by with a win over the Ramona Bulldogs on Friday night, 14-6.
Ramona started out on the right foot in this one, with quarterback Jacob Snyder going deep to find wideout Jacob Nelson for a 42-yard pass. Later on that possession, Snyder found the end zone on a 25-yard carry to take a 6-0 lead.
Towards the end of the first quarter, the Bulldogs had forced the Eagles to punt. However, the punt returner muffed the ball after being hit. That put San Pasqual in great position going into the second quarter.
The Golden Eagles were able to take the lead, 7-6, early in the second quarter, coming on a quarterback option keeper for two yards from Trevor Jungman.
From there on, both defenses really began to control the game.
It was a defensive battle between the two schools, with both offenses failing to find any true momentum. Even when a team forced a turnover, the ensuing offense would struggle to push the ball downfield against the opposing defense.
Ramona was able to push the ball into Eagles’ territory, but the drive halted and they missed the field goal.
San Pasqual was unable to capitalize, as they through an interception to end the first half.
It was much of the same in the second half, with neither offense able to get much going.
With around eight minutes to go in the fourth quarter, the Golden Eagles began to push the ball down the field. They were able to capitalize on another rushing touchdown from six yards out to push their lead to 14-6 with six minutes to play.
The Bulldogs weren’t able to answer the big score from the Eagles and turned the ball over on downs with just minutes to play. From there, San Pasqual was able to get a few key first downs and run the clock out.
Ramona (0-6) will head to Escondido next week, while San Pasqual will play Rancho Buena Vista at RBV.
