John McFadden Eastlake High School Football Coach: “We knew El Camino had a lot of speed, as we have played good teams. El Camino is the quickest team ever, everytime they score touchdowns it is all on the big plays against our backs.” “Roman Cole and Parker Merrifield ran the football and give credit to our offensive line, they made the key blocks. We ran a new offense called the Wing T and those plays worked well for us. The players knowing what their responsibilities are opened up holes for us and our quarterback did good.”
“Our defense made 2 interceptions that were the key plays for our squad. Maximus Susi came up caught the ball in the middle for a 14 yard score. Quinton Johnson is a heck of an athlete and now is playing high level football as he ran 47 yards for the other interception score.” said Coach McFadden.
This game was stopped at 1:57 left in the contest due to some fighting on the football field.
With the win the Eastlake Titans improves to 5-1 and will take on the Crusaders of Mater Dei High School next Friday while El Camino with the loss fall to 1-4 will take on the Broncos of Rancho Bernardo in a homecoming contest.
