Offense Racks Up the Yards in Victory

September 22, 2017

If you like offense, then Friday night was the football game for you. Both teams combined for just under 1,000 yards in the game and ran over 140 plays. The scoreboard read 13-13 at the end of one and the pace was picking up. CCS had a chance to open up a two score lead before the half, but could not connect. This left Pasadena with 98 yards to go. They accomplished this task in just four minutes to tie the game right before halftime.

The defense got rolling in the second half when Christian Fleischhauer picked off a pass on the opening drive. Josh Holl then connected with Joseph Carbone, who went high in the air to grab the ball and broke two tackles before scampering 44 yards to the end zone. Josh Holl would throw four touchdown passes for the second week in a row. It included two to Braden Barbisch, who was like a rocket every time he touched the ball, and another perfectly thrown ball to JT Mounce in the back of the endzone on a 4th and 13 play to get the Warriors on the board again.

The Warriors really did the most damage in between the tackles as they gained 272 yards. Jackson Landrum had 165 yards and a touchdown and Fleischhauer added another 116 yards and two touchdowns.

Tyler Landua led the defense with 10 total tackles. Nathan Frye and Lawson Ellisor recorded a sack each and Mannuel Ochoa had 2.5 tackles for loss. Daniel Macune had another solid night with eight total tackles and continues to lead the team through three games.

The Warriors have improved to 2-1 overall with a 2-0 mark in district play. They will travel to Beaumont Legacy next Friday night at 7 p.m.
