Western, Irvine play to a 17-17 tie

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

ANAHEIM – Western coach Dan Davidson felt his young team made too many mistakes and left scoring chances on the field in a 17-17 tie against visiting Irvine in a nonleague game Friday at Western High.

The teams agreed before the game that no overtime would be played if it ended in a tie.

“When you’re young you drop wide-open touchdowns, you don’t hold onto the ball the way you should,” Davidson said. “I thought we were prepared, we just didn’t finish.”

With the score tied at 10 in the third quarter, Irvine defender Brent Miller stripped the ball from Western running back Jacob Domino and returned it 66 yards for a touchdown, giving Irvine (0-2-1) a 17-10 lead.

But a 37-yard pass in the fourth quarter set up a 1-yard Jacob Domino touchdown run for Western, tying the score at 17.

With seconds left, Munoz, who completed 4 of 6 passes on the final drive, tossed the ball near the goal line to a leaping Pioneers receiver who could not come down with it.

Munoz completed 14 of 24 passes for 155 yards, including a 27-yard scoring strike to Aaron Bojorquez in the second quarter, to lead Western (1-1-1).

In the first half, Western drove to the Irvine 6-yard line before Jackson was stopped twice for short gains, setting up a 22-yard Marco Navas field goal that pushed the lead to 10-3.
