Ramona Jr. Mitey Mites Attack Dawgs enforced their fifth straight consecutive win against Murrieta Redhawks (30-20).
It was a perfect-storm combination of offense and defense, along with special teams adding to the scoreboards with extra points. The win puts the Attack Dawgs in an undefeated season thus far.
The defense was solid with strong tackles made by Peyton Parks up the middle, Jayden Lewis on the outside to contain the sweep, Carter Larzalere on the outside, Josiah Bowman with a monster hit up the middle, and Andrew Revis on the inside. Both Colin Nungesser and Colin Dupill had another strong game with tackles to contain further movement by the Murrieta offense. Even with only small yards to go, the Attack Dawgs defense held and turned over three fourth downs to give a first down for the Attack Dawgs offense.
On the offense, center Gabriel Lutz had flawless snapping, and quarterback Brayden Nungesser powered the ball up and down the field for key yards. Chance Mattson and Josh Dutra had long runs down the field. Bowman scored three TD’s. Jayden Abdou kicked three for four in field goals to give the team 6 extra points on the board. Abdou is nick-named by some of his teammates “The Foot.”
