Week 9: La Costa Canyon Mavericks at Mission Hills Grizzlies (no contest)

The La Costa Canyon Mavericks traveled to the Mission Hills Grizzlies in Week 9 and the game ended in no contest due to lightning.

Where do we start with this game?

Well, in the first quarter, it was quite a tug of war.

Mission Hills punted to ball to LCC and the ball was dropped, as Mission Hills recovered the ball at the 42-yard line.

On Mission Hills’ second play with the ball after it was recovered, the Grizzlies fumbled the ball. LCC recovered it, taking it back for their own.

LCC’s Marshall Eucker aired out a 36-yard pass to Trevor Gonzales setting LCC up at the 8-yard line.

Aiden Lippert went on to fumble the ball into the end zone and Brett Maryon recovered the ball in the end zone for an LCC touchdown. Giving LCC the lead, 7-0.

Then this is where the twist comes in, as a lightning and rain delay puts the game to a halt with 16 seconds left in the first quarter.

Tonight was Mission Hills’ Homecoming game. This means that there is a lot of planning and work that goes into nights like this, a halftime show, homecoming court, etc.

While the game was in question as to whether it would continue, Mission Hills decided to improvise. Mission Hills managed to pull off an amazing halftime show in the gym where everyone was taking cover from the weather.

In the end, the game was called no contest.

While the weather may have put a damper on the game, the Mission Hills staff and students managed to turn things around with an awesome halftime show in the gym.


PREVIEW

Mission Hills is coming out of a Week 8 loss in a tight game against the undefeated Torrey Pines Falcons. The Grizzlies fell just short with a final score of 13-7. Keeping the score that tight against a team as strong as the Falcons says a lot about the tenacity of the Grizzlies.
