Tony Corley San Pasqual Head Football Coach: “Our defense did well tonight. Fallbrook’s offense is good and are a big physical team that will wear you down. I’m proud of our kids that kept their composure and give them a lot of credit.” “We hoped that before the half and tried to hold them to a field goal. Jackson Christopherson for Fallbrook snuck in a play for the long drive. Regrouping at intermission to talk about how to stop the long play drives.” “The key to today’s game was to play team defense as they have played well the last few weeks. Teammates are starting to trust each other by making the key tackles in the right spots. I was watching the quarterback scramble he rolled out to his right side, threw and I saw Manny Adieza there for the pick 6. He has played well for us all season for 3 huge wins.”
