Your varsity football team completed an undefeated league season (4 - 0) by defeating Trinity Classical Academy, 31 to 12, in last Friday night's homecoming and senior night game. The Eagles finished the regular season with a 9 - 1 record and await the brackets for the upcoming CIF playoffs that begin this week!
The Eagle defense, led by defensive coordinator, Chi Chi Biehn, executed an outstanding game plan as they shut down the prolific passing attack of Trinity Classical. Seth Yu had two interceptions, one being a 57 yard "pick six", to put the Eagles up, 17 to 6, early in the third quarter and opened up the flood gates for the offense to overwhelm the Knights in the second half. The defensive front of Josh Sears, James Porrello, Khalil Peterson, Jack Roberts, and Christian Harris harrassed the Trinity offense throughout the evening as they forced the Knights into numerous errant throws. Trey Henry broke up several long passes as he returns to form after suffering a knee injury earlier in the season.
The offense struggled early, however, they put together a clutch drive at the end of the first half to score with :05 seconds left to turn the momentum of the game and put the Eagles up, 10 - 6, at halftime. Tyler Henry hit Trey Henry in the corner of the end zone on a 10 yard scoring strike to put CVCS up for good in this league championship game!
In the second half, Yu busted through for a 30 yard touchdown run to put the Eagles up 24 - 6, and Tyler Henry (6 of 11 for 93 yards and 2 td passes) completed a beautiful 30 yard fade route to his favorite receiver, Simeon Marton, to up the score to 31 - 6.
The Eagles are opening up the CIF playoffs vs. Loara (Anaheim) at Tesoro High School on Friday night, November 2 at 7 pm. Loara (7 - 3) is the 2nd place team from the Garden Grove League and are led by veteran head coach, Mitch Olson.
