After a brief respite after the earlier matinee, our Rams Varsity took on the Crusaders varsity as the sun set. Calvin took the opening kick, but could not connect the dots and the ball went over to our Rams on downs. Jesus Ornelas used his legs for 2 first downs and a long pass to Alex Morris for the first score of the game. The 2 point attempt failed. Two minutes out of the First quarter, Borrego 6, Calvin Christian 0.

The Crusaders gathered themselves and marched 47 yards for their first score of the evening. Their 2 point conversion was good. Borrego 6, Calvin Christian 8. The Rams second possession went 3 and out. After a short Borrego punt, the Crusaders went 39 yards on 4 plays for their second TD of the night. Their 2 point conversion was good. Borrego 6, Calvin Christian 16.Our Rams went 3 and out with a short punt to their own 34. Calvin only took 2 plays to put their next score on the scoreboard. Their extra point flew true. Borrego 6, Calvin Christian 23.

There is still time left in the First Quarter. The Rams were on the move when Andrew Morris broke a 34 yard return on the Crusaders kickoff, but our Rams could get no further up to the end of the First Quarter. At the Quarter, Borrego 6, Calvin Christian 23. The Rams opened the Second Quarter with 2 dropped passes and the ball went over to Calvin on downs. Calvin took 3 minutes to march 65 yards for another score. Their extra point kick was good. Borrego 6, Calvin Christian 30. Our Rams were moving again on the legs of Andrew, Jesus and Alex, but they fell short and the ball went over to Calvin on downs.

The Rams went 3 and out. Calvin took 3 plays to move the ball 40 yards for another touchdown. Their extra point was good. Borrego 6, Calvin Christian 44. The Rams could generate no yardage as the First Half mercifully came to and end. Because of the score, the Second Half was played under a running clock.

The Crusaders took 4 plays and picked up the last score of the game. Again, their extra point lick was good. Borrego 6, Calvin Christian 51. The last quarter passed with no scoring by either team.
