The Colts were once again dominant in their 58-0 destruction of the Mission San Jose Warriors. The score was 51-0 at halftime and our seconds got some much deserved playing time.
This game, we were lead by our defense, which has only allowed a total of 12 points in 4 league games. We also added two scores with interceptions returned for touchdowns by Victor Johnson and Marjely Taugavau. The Warriors did not have a single passing yard the entire game and they were held to 67 yards of total offense.
Our offense continued to make big plays. Joey Castro had an impressive touchdown catch and run for 66 yards. I also made a big play with a 48 yard touchdown pass.
We knew we were going to dominate this team and now our focus is entirely on Washington. They too are 4-0 in league and when we meet this Friday, it will be for the league championship that they won last year.
Last year, they beat us on a last minute drive when their quarterback, David Ross, made two huge plays back to back against two of our then juniors. First, I lost contain on the quarterback and he scrambled for a big gain. Next, CB Joey Castro was in perfect coverage but the receiver still caught the ball over him for the game winning score.
When the schedule first came out we looked for when this game would be and knew that it would be the biggest game of the year. And for a few of our players we’ve been waiting for revenge for far too long.
When I look at both teams, we are very similar. We both have great quarterbacks and explosive playmakers. We also have great tight ends. Both teams will make plays and make this a game to remember. This will be a physical game and full of emotion.
