Foothill defense limits Fountain Valley

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

TUSTIN – Foothill quarterback Bobby Garcia rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown as the Knights defeated Fountain Valley, 30-6, Friday night in a nonleague game at Tustin High.

Although Fountain Valley kept the game close by allowing just one field goal in the first half, Foothill coach Doug Case said he told his team to stop the mental mistakes that were killing drives.

“We were flat, but we were also severely undisciplined, and that really bothers me,” Case said about his team going into halftime with a 3-0 lead.

Case thought his team might come out flat after a big win against Tustin last week.

But Garcia and the offense turned it on in the second half, while the defense only allowed one touchdown.

Garcia completed 8 of 16 passes for 134 yards and a 40-yard touchdown strike to Devon Anderson in the fourth quarter. And the Knights (2-1) rushed for 208 yards and two touchdowns.

While the Foothill defense held its own, Fountain Valley (0-4) managed 159 passing yards with a scoring toss and just 15 rushing yards.

Foothill linebacker Jonathan Mejia nabbed an interception in the fourth quarter with just over a minute left and ran it back for a 52-yard touchdown.

Fountain Valley quarterback Garret Horn tossed a 29-yard touchdown pass to Julian Berinti in the fourth quarter.

Kicker Andrew Robles made a 31-yard field goal to give the Knights a 3-0 lead in the first quarter.

Garcia rushed for a 4-yard touchdown in the third quarter to cap a 65-yard drive, giving the Knights a 10-0 lead.
