San Juan Hills crashes Marina's party
WESTMINSTER – Celebrating its 50th anniversary as a school, Marina wanted to win its homecoming game for all in attendance.
The problem was it ran into an undefeated San Juan Hills team that wanted to spoil it.
And boy did it.
After leading by eight at halftime, San Juan Hills ran away, 51-7, in a nonleague game at Westminster High.
San Juan Hills coach Aaron Flowers knew his team had to get some jitters out.
“Marina did a nice job of mixing up their blitz packages and we needed to settle down and pick them up. We did a good job of figuring that out in the second half,” he said.
The third quarter began with the Stallions (4-0) scoring on a 26-yard touchdown run by Brad Kremer.
Two minutes later, they added another touchdown on an 80-yard run by Mike Miscione. Miscione added a 23-yard touchdown run in the quarter, giving San Juan Hills a 37-7 lead.
“Both our running backs are fast and when they get in space (they) can be very dangerous,” Flowers said.
Miscione finished with 128 rushing yards.
Quarterback Jacob Gibson completed 15 of 22 passes for 293 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. Jordon Pape caught three passes for 116yards.
The Vikings (1-3) scored in the second quarter when quarterback Daylan Harmeyer found Scott Phillips from 13 yards.
