Vista Jr. Eagles vs. Ponderosa



Vista 40, Ponderosa 0

The Jr. Eagles put on a show for the home crowd, as they came out firing for their first win in an impressive 40-0 victory over the Jr. Bruins. A 48-yard touchdown run from Justin Womack in the first minute of play started the Eagles off and they never looked back, smothering the Bruins on both sides of the ball. Aschlei Andrade got the Eagles’ defense going on their first possession by delivering a monstrous hit on the Bruins’ running back for a big loss. In fact, the Eagles’ defensive line was exceptional in the shutout victory, as Samir Spikes, Lucas Hromanik, Joseph Sotelo, Lucas Garcia and Westin Davenport consistently made big plays behind the line of scrimmage. During the second half, Carter Levesque recovered a kickoff for the Eagles after Garcia ricocheted the ball off the Bruins’ front line. A few moments later, Jack Granrud had an interception for a touchdown that completed the rout and brought the Eagles’ crowd to its feet. Next week the Eagles visit the Natomas Jr. Nighthawks.

The Eagles came out Saturday seeking their second win of the season and the first at home. The offense went to work right away. Matt Long moved down the field with several long runs, putting the Eagles in scoring position. Long hooked up with Camden King for the game’s first score. Nico Biagetti came in to make the two-point conversion. Later in the half, Long called his own number for a 35-yard run for the Eagles’ second touchdown of the first half. The defense was strong the whole first half. The return of Brandon Nazworth and Joseph Musk made the Eagles’ already great front five even more dominant. The big men up front shut down the Bruin run attack. Josiah Ramos, King, and Johnny Koett all had multiple tackles in the Eagles’ secondary. The second half opened with the Eagles going back to the air for the third score of the game. Koett hooked up with Biagetti on an 20-yard TD pass, Biagetti followed up with a two-point PAT. The Eagles’ offense was not done for the day. Drew Ewey, who pounded the ball all day, scored late in the game. The Eagles visit Natomas next Saturday, which promises to be a great game. Go Eagles!
