Thompson secures victory for Calvary Chapel against Costa Mesa

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

COSTA MESA – Calvary Chapel defeated Costa Mesa, 34-9, Friday night at Estancia High to complete an unbeaten run through Orange Coast League play.

The Eagles (7-3 overall, 5-0) edged Godinez (6-4, 4-1) for the league title and now await the opponent for their first-round playoff matchup, which will be announced Sunday morning.

The host Mustangs (5-5, 1-4) battled the Eagles to a 7-7 tie at halftime.

Late in the third quarter, things began to look bleak for the Eagles. A punt from Costa Mesa senior Cameron Curet rolled to a stop at the 1-yard line. On the next play, senior defensive tackle Helper Kisino tackled running back Braeden Stack in the end zone for a safety, trimming the Eagles’ lead to 13-9.

A big return by Curet on the ensuing free kick and a 15-yard penalty against the Eagles brought the ball to the Calvary Chapel 14, and the Mustangs appeared poised to take the lead.

However, Calvary Chapel senior Luke Thompson intercepted a screen pass and returned it 79 yards for a touchdown, extending the Eagles’ lead to 20-9.

It was all Calvary Chapel from there. Stack and fellow senior Isaiah Bustillos added touchdowns in the fourth quarter to extend the lead, Stack’s on a 55-yard catch and run from senior quarterback Patrick Glasgow.

Glasgow had a similar touchdown pass midway through the third when he connected with junior wideout Payton Rogers for a 51-yard score.

Glasgow finished 17 of 27 for 254 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Bustillos caught a 6-yard pass from him in the corner of the end zone in the first half.

Costa Mesa’s first-half touchdown came on a 14-yard pass from junior quarterback Christian Villaverde to senior receiver Josh Snipes.

Senior running back Jonathan Brucales ran for 88 yards on 18 carries for the Mustangs. Curet added 69 yards on eight carries.
