Valley Center Pop Warner, Oct. 10
October 07, 2013The Junior Midget Jaguars won a decisive 36–6 game under the Saturday night lights at Escondido's Orange Glen High School.
The Santa Ana cross winds did not play a noticeable factor in the game against the Escondido Charging Wolves.
The Jaguars scored early in the first quarter with a 25-yard pass from KJ Mazzetti to Alicia Zappia, who sped past her defender into the endzone.
The Jaguar defense took over to force a turnover on downs with some great tackles by Cole Keller, Ethan McCoy, and Nathan Nichols.
During the next drive, Kyungoh Kang ran in a 30-yard touchdown with some great blocking by Mica Avila-Mclure and James Cambell. The Jaguar defense again forced the Wolves to punt from deep in their own territory, and Kyungoh Kang received the punt, breaking tackles and zig-zaging through defenders to take the ball in for another touchdown.
Alex Hakes went three-for-three kicking the extra points, splitting the goalposts for six total points. He also had a great defensive play knocking the ball out of an Escondido receiver's hands on a third-and-long.
Ronny McCowan ran in the next touchdown hammering up the middle through the defenders for the score.
Quest Smith had an interception to stop Escondido's offensive drive in its tracks, and Patrick Foley got into the backfield to sack the quarterback on a third-and-five to force another fourth-down decision for the Wolves.
In the fourth quarter, the Wolves, playing a fierce game to the very end, responded with a touchdown to end the game 36–6.
