Torrey Pines High School Beach Bowl victory
Torrey Pines didn’t know if it would make the playoffs going into its regular season finale against a heavily favored La Costa Canyon team.
The Falcons emerged from what might have been a win-or-go-home game with new life.
A stunning 24-17 upset victory over LCC in a nonleague game on Nov. 2 at the annual Beach Bowl helped the Falcons secure a San Diego Section Division I playoff berth, and sent them into the postseason with the wind at their back.
