footballtotsThe Carmel Valley Dons 3-4th Grade Spring Tackle Football team recently extended its winning streak by defeating the Temecula Titans 12-7. The Titans were up at half time 7-6. Both teams defenses were dominating the second half and with just 45 seconds remaining in the game on the Dons 15-yard line, Edin Gonzalez (32) stripped th

e Titans running back and ran for the game-winning 75-yard touchdown, giving the Dons a 12-7 victory and their third straight victory this spring.

Coach Dave Scurlock responded by saying, “We called our infamous 3-3 Wide side Charlie blitz where Gonzalez comes up from his safety position and basically took the handoff from the running back. Once Gonzalez has the ball, there is no stopping that kid.” Scurlock then went on to say, “Our defense was outstanding, a true team effort.” The Dons defense was led by Edin Gonzalez #32, Ian Hicks #77, Alexander Howell #40, Ryan Kan# 7, Demir Khawaja # 4, Rex Mitchell # 8, Bryce Scurlock # 1, Daniel Shirfon #15, and Donovan Young # 5.
