Torrey Pines Falcons lose close season opener to La Costa Canyon Mavericks

run by Plashkes on the next play and a two-pont kick by Tucker Pike put the Falcons up early, 8-0. The Mavericks scored two long-distance touchdowns in the first half. The first came on a first down 75 yard pass to the halfback out of the backfield and the second on a 33 yard sprint around the Mavericks’ left end. As time was expiring in the first half, the Falcons reached the Maverick two yard line before having to settle for a Tucker Pike field goal.

The first half ended with LCC leading 14-11, and that would be the final game score. Both teams would move the ball in the second half but neither could get into the end zone. LCC would move the ball to the Falcon 22 yard line before a penalty helped halt the drive, and Torrey Pines would make a fourth quarter first down at the Maverick 20, only to lose that opportunity to a penalty. The two Palomar Conference powerhouses will meet again on Sept. 29 on the Torrey Pines field, and it should be a great display of Pop Warner football. — Bill Butler
