The Capistrano Valley Christian football team hit on all cylinders in all phases of the game in dominating Mark Keppel from Alhambra, 62 – 13, Friday night before a homecoming crowd at Capo Valley high school.
Rome Demongin scored on the first offensive play of the game as he took the handoff and exploded for a 72 - yard run after his offensive line opened a sizeable hole. Keppel answered with a big play of its own on a fade route and tied up the score at 7 early in the first quarter. The Eagles next drive ended with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Henry to tight end Dylen Roberts to put the CVC up 14 – 7. Keppel came right back with another touchdown, and it looked like a shootout was in the making. Dylan Roberts blocked the extra point making the score 14 – 13, still in the first quarter. Keppel would not see the end zone for the remainder of the game as the Eagles offense blew open the game with a 28 point second quarter onslaught.
Tyler Henry’s pinpoint passing continued (10 of 17 for 157 yards) as he threw 5 touchdown passes on the evening! Henry who has completed 65% of his passes during the season, connected with Roberts twice and Simeon Marton three more times, to run his season total to 13 touchdown passes with only 3 interceptions. Marton led all receivers with 8 receptions for 105 yards to go with his record-breaking season total of 13 touchdown receptions.
Rome Demongin, behind the blocking of Josh Sears, Michael Longfellow, Cole Flynn, Noah Olson, and Stefan Purgason blistered the Aztec defense for 205 yards on 19 carries and 3 touchdowns. The Eagles racked up 285 yards rushing to go with their 157 yards passing in another balanced attack.
The defense stepped up and shut out the Keppel offense for the final three quarters of the contest. Pablo Moser led the way with two interceptions to turn back any Aztec thoughts of getting back into the game in the second half. Roberts again led all tacklers (7 solos, 1 assist) while the defensive line put constant pressure on the Aztec passing game. Kaden Manrique pitched in with 7 unassisted tackles, Demongin had two tackles for a loss, and Nathan Boyce added a key sack on a 3rd and long situation to go with his 6 total tackles for the game. The defense line saw improved play from Hunter Long (4 solo tackles), Longfellow, Sears, and Olson. Noah Richie completed the scoring with a “scoop and score” for an 80-yard touchdown for the Eagles.
