M.V. shuts out Tigers

Posted: Thursday, Oct 10th, 2013

PREPARING IN PINK: Monte Vista’s Adianna Gallegos (3) whacks a spike in warm-ups, prior to the Lady Pirates’ Oct. 1 home match versus Alamosa. MV’s players sported the pink jerseys as a nod to October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and gave the Mean Moose a great match before losing the 3A Intermountain League contest 25-23, 20-25, 25-22, 23-25, 10-15

DEL NORTE—Homecoming sports were not the best showings for the Del Norte Tigers as the Monte Vista Pirates came away with a 56-0 mercy rule win here at Spieser Field on Saturday afternoon.

The Pirates had four first quarter possessions all on their offensive side of the 50-yardline as they recovered a fumble, nabbed an interception and forced the Tigers into two quick 3-and-out to give them short yardage and the easy scores.

On their first score, senior quarterback Michael Sanchez found sophomore Presley Garcia for a 6-yard receiving touchdown to make the score 7-0 with 6:30 left in the first.

Senior linebacker Brenen Ramirez made a good read on the quarterback as he undercut a screen pass for an interception with room as he returned it to the 21 yard line. The very first play from the line of scrimmage was a 21-yard lob pass to junior running back Jacob Vance. Once again, junior Brandon Medina cashed in on the second PAT to make the score 14-0 with 6:17 showing on the clock.

After a quick punt, sophomore running back Michael Valdez cashed in with a 9-yard rush down the middle for a touchdown and a Medina kick to make the score 21-0 with 3:32 left in the first.

Another punt gave the Tigers the ball at the 41-yardline. Sanchez went into the shotgun and waited for his receivers to get open before powering the ball down the field. As the ball floated over a defender’s head, the pass found the hands of senior tight end Mitch Vanderpool for a quick 41-yard act to make the score 28-0 with 1:21 left in the quarter.
