Pop Warner Midgets make it five

   The Ramona Pop Warner Midget Bulldawgs continued to roll, making it five wins in a row by beating the Alpine Mountaineers 29-0 at the annual Jack Packwood Bowl on Saturday.  

   The Bulldawgs’ first drive was a ground-based attack relying on hard running from half backs Brenden Tustison and Tanner “T-Bone” Williams and fullbacks Daniel Van Tol and Noah Cappadocia. Tustison and Williams recorded first down runs on the drive with Van Tol capping it off with a 25-yard touchdown run.  

   The next Bulldawg score came on a 60-yard drive combining run and pass that was capped off by a 1-yard touchdown run by quarterback Ryan Lopez.   The Bulldawgs spread the ball around in the passing game with completions to Chance Miller, Kyle Wilson, Tanner Williams and Tustison.   

   “We played three quarterbacks today, Lopez, Christian Drews  and Dallas Domnitz.  All three did an excellent job of leading the team down the field,” said Coach Matt Lisowski.  

   With quarterback Lopez calling the signals at the line, Tustison shot to the sideline for a 50-yard touchdown run.   Wide Receiver Drews provided the block that sprung Tustison.  

   “We’ve worked on downfield blocking all year and Christian is truly a selfless player,” said Lisowski, the team’s head coach.  “He is key to our big gains on offense.”

   Fullback Trae Rodriguez dove in from the 3 yard line for the Bulldawgs last touchdown, and kicker Daniel Torres kicked a 27-yard field goal to cap off the Bulldawg scoring.  

   The stingy Bulldawg defense only allowed a handful of first downs.  The running game of Alpine was shutdown by outstanding play from defensive lineman Andrew Dougans, Joe Martins, Andrew Houry and Alex Duey and linebackers Jacob Grybow and Josh Hale, coaches agreed.  With Alpine staying mostly to the ground, Bulldawg safeties prevented any big gains for runs that got past the line of scrimmage.  

   “Alex Gomez had his best game of the year at safety.  He’s come a long way this season,” said Defensive Coordinator John Rodriguez.

   “It takes a lot of effort and time to have a successful football program,” commented Coach Lisowski. “We would not be as organized or ready for game day if it wasn’t for the tireless efforts of our business manager, Lora Tustison, and team parent, Bernadette Gawne.”

   The Bulldawgs’ final game will be in the San Diego Sun Bowl on Dec. 5.
