Palomar Coach Joe Early: “We gave the game away today as how I’m upset in the way we performed on the field, El Camino popped the ball in the air and they took it to the house in the first half,in the second half we had a man to man coverage on them as we didn’t follow up on tackling and didn’t take it to the house so there are 14 points on 2 busted plays.”
” We had opportunities by scoring on defense along with the personal fouls which hurt us which we defeated ourselves today but not to take anything away from El Camino we gave this game away When we led 24-21 I thought our squad was going to shut the game down or were going to win today it hard said Coach Early
” Our next opponent is College of the Canyons as we played Moorpark last week for a long road trip for our squad.” said Coach Early
