Torrey Pines Falcons Jr Midget defeat Temecula Grizzlies

By Bill Butler

The Falcons beat the Grizzlies 31-6

The Falcons kicked off to the Grizzlies who returned the kick 2 yards to the 30-yard line. Temecula picked up 1st downs on their first two series of plays. Those two 1st downs would be their last of the game. Temecula did score a touchdown on a long pass with less than a minute on the clock. At that point, the Mercy Rule was in effect after Torrey Pines went ahead 31-6 early in the 4th quarter.

Torrey Pines started well on offense, as Conner Whitton completed his first 4 passes before the fifth was dropped. However, the Falcons did not score until early in the 2nd quarter when Garland Peed threw a 17-yard touchdown to Scotty Gange in the left side of the end zone. Tucker Pike added the 2-point kick. Zac Friedland added a second touchdown on a long punt return before halftime, and Pike was again good on the kick. Torrey Pines led at halftime, 16-0.

The Falcons added a third touchdown in the third quarter. A penalty against the Grizzlies placed the ball on their 9 yard line, 1st and goal. Jackie Plashkes picked up 4 yards before Friedland scored untouched. Another Pike kick, and Torrey Pines led 24-0.

The Falcons scored their last touchdown on the first play of the 4th quarter. QB Peed roll out on a bootleg from the 5-yard line into the right end of the end zone. The Falcons ran for a single extra point, making the score 31-0. From that point on, the game continued with a running clock and special ball placements after touchdowns for the Grizzlies. Temecula scored on a long pass play with less than a minute left to play. The game ended at 31-6, Falcons.

This was the most complete game of the season for the Falcons, who dominated all phases of the game: offense, defense, running, passing, and kicking. Torrey Pines will meet a good team from Murrieta on Sept. 22 at Falcon Stadium.
