The Ramona Mitey Dawgs’ football team beat Valley Center, 33-6, in the season opener on Saturday. This was after a pre-season 28-6 win over Poway the previous week.
Head Coach Manny Lutz called the Mitey Dawgs’ defense unstoppable. Tackles by Peyton Silva, Josiah Bowman, Cole Mattson, Gabriel Muñoz, Brayden Nungesser, Chance Mattson, Nickolas Driscoll, Reese Lucero and Gabriel Lutz, combined with a quarterback strip and recovery by Colin Nungesser, were key to the Dawgs’ success.
Adding to the score was an offense led by quarterback Brayden Nungesser that orchestrated plays resulting in three touchdowns, the first by Bowman. Mason Wrenn pushed through a wedge play charged by the offensive line for a second touchdown, and Chance Mattson ran in for the third touchdown. Colin Nungesser then caught a pass from Chance Mattson and ran in for the Dawgs’ fourth touchdown of the game. Lucero gained 2 extra points after the fourth touchdown. The game was officially over after the Dawgs’ offense drove in a touchdown made by Cole Mattson and an extra point from Bowman.
“Talent, hard work, determination and great attitudes drive this football team and it is our core desire to always have fun,” said Lutz.
