Dawg Pack defeats Carlsbad Lancers
After two straight losses, the Dawg Pack got back on track Saturday with a win over the Carlsbad Lancers, 14-6.
Although the Dawg Pack offense moved well down field in the first quarter with great runs by Tyler Vargas, Raul Briseno and Adam Parades, they came up short in their first two offensive series after a pass interference penalty and an interception stopped both drives.
The defense did its part to give the ball back to the offense with crushing tackles by Matthew Shaw, Blake Workman, Bryce Cox, Troy Jordan, Michael Salas and David Clark. Drew Robinson recovered a fumble late in the second quarter, giving the offense one last chance to score in the first half.
After receptions by Raul Briseno and Keyno Chrichlow, quarterback Garrett Binkley ran the ball into the end zone. The point after kick by Tyler Vargas was good and the half ended at 8-0.
Three minutes into the third quarter, the Lancers answered back with a score of their own. The point after kick was short and the score stood at 8-6.
On the next drive, Garrett Binkley took the ball from the 40 yard line evading tackles, one after the other to run the ball into the end zone. But it was all for nothing as a yellow flag was thrown and a penalty brought the Dawg Pack all the way back to their 25.
But the ‘never say die’ Dawgs refused to give up. The offensive line blocks by Cameron Khrone, Dakota Kandler, Jordan Wisnoski and Jeffrey Guthrie, opened up another hole for a Garrett Binkley run, setting up a pass to number 16, who snatched the ball out of the air and brought it down in the end zone for the Dawg Pack’s second score.
The defense held the Lancers for the remainder of the game with Grady Vazquez, Ben Stein and Jacob Buckley stopping the run. The Lancers last chance at scoring ended up with an interception by Raul Briseno and the game ended 14-6.
“Way to go Dawg Pack for a great win and for supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month with your pink socks,” said the players’ coaches.
