The Torrey Pines freshman football team rolled to another win over Poway, 48-0.

This was the 5-0 Falcons’ third shutout for the season, in which they have outscored their opponents by a total of 189-35. It was a game of big plays, as people have come to expect from the Falcons.

But the first big play belonged to Poway, a quarterback keeper by Clay Elias for 25 yards and a first down on a drive from the Titans’ 35 to Torrey Pines’ 25, where a fumbled snap on fourth down led to a turnover on downs. That was to be Poway’s best drive of the game.
