Debernarde, Glasgow lead Calvary Chapel past Estancia
COSTA MESA – There were several stretches Friday night when it didn’t appear the passing game was the key to much of anything regarding Calvary Chapel’s two wins this season.
Quarterback Patrick Glasgow, who entered the game against host Estancia averaging 32 attempts per game, started off 1 for 6 for 1 yard. In the second half, he threw six passes on Calvary’s first two possessions, and the only one he completed was to the wrong team.
But once Glasgow and the aerial attack found their rhythm, they proved, once again, to be the turning point in a 23-21 win in the Orange Coast League opener.
Glasgow finished 24 of 40 for 264 yards and three touchdowns, two of which went to Josh Debernarde. He has thrown at least three touchdown passes in each of Calvary’s three victories. He has just four in the Eagles’ three losses.
Estancia (1-5) did an effective job limiting the Calvary passing attack throughout the first three quarters, and it was reflected in a 14-10 lead.
But in a matter of 3 minutes, 40 seconds of game clock, Glasgow completed seven consecutive passes to four receivers for two touchdowns. Suddenly, a 14-10 Estancia lead was flipped into a 23-14 deficit.
Calvary’s Braeden Stack had 13 catches, 10 during the second half.
Estancia was led by running back Tyler Chacon, who rushed for 88 yards on 26 carries.
