David A. Willauer-Contributing Writer-Excalibur Field-San Marcos High School-San Marcos, CA-Friday, September 28, 2018: In a very low scoring contest that was full of turnovers, penalties but good defensive battles by both ranked schools in North County. La Costa Canyon, 2nd ranked and previously undefeated at 5-1 had 7 penalties for 35 to San Marcos at 5-1 16 penalties for 125. The Knights were trailing 6-3 at the half and tied the game at 6-6 on Caleb Mancini’s 49 yards at 8:44 in the third quarter. The key turnaround, Maverick quarterback Marshall Eucker, had 9 completions out of 21 attempts for 107 yards but threw a key interception to Knights Jalen Bainer who ran 25 yards for an interception and he was tackled at the 3 yard line.
” La Costa Canyon has outstanding athletes.” ” The key touchdown by Aaron Norvita turned our momentum and that is how we won the game.” said Jalen Bainer.
