Last updated 10/13/2006 at Noon
On Friday, October 6, the Warriors played the Rancho Bernardo Broncos and were defeated by a score of 33-20. However, the Warriors did boast their first second half lead of the season and were close to keeping the Broncos in check. Eventually, the Broncos had enough steam to wear down the Warriors and win the game.
In the first half, Fallbrook held Rancho Bernardo to a touchdown while Rogelio Zamudio kicked a 37-yard field goal to make the score 7-3 going into the half. First half highlights included five tackles and a sack by Devin Welsh, a 30-yard run by Cody McDole and three rushes by Mitchell Salazar for 26 yards.
In the second half, the Warriors made a touchdown right off the bat, making the score Fallbrook 10, Rancho Bernardo 7. The score came after a sustaining drive set up a 31-yard touchdown run by Aaron Atkins. The Broncos responded with a touchdown but Aaron White blocked the PAT, making the total points Rancho Bernardo 13, Fallbrook 10.
Rancho Bernardo scored again, but then Zamudio kicked a 30-yard field goal that was set up by 27 yards rushing by Aaron Holt. The score was now Rancho Bernardo 20, Fallbrook 13. Despite some big plays by Fallbrook on defense, the Broncos connected on two more touchdowns to clinch the game. With the score 33-13, the Warriors succeeded in racking up some more points when McDole took the ball 78 yards for a touchdown. The final scoreboard read Rancho Bernardo 33, Fallbrook 20.
Will Evans (four tackles, one sack) and Devin Welsh (seven tackles, one sack) really came on strong for the defense and Atkins (62 yards rushing), McDole (143 yards rushing), Nick Hayes (75 yards rushing) and Holt (49 yards rushing) gave it their all on the offensive side of the ball. The Warriors are still looking for their first win and hope to find it this Friday, October 13, at the Fallbrook Stadium. The Homecoming game begins at 7:30 p.m. and the more Fallbrook fans, the merrier. Come and support the varsity team this week!
