Saturday’s First round CIF Boys LAX contest saw a tough Otay Ranch team in a 12-9 victory. It had been over two weeks since the boys last played a game. After starting off well, they showed a little bit of rust and made some uncharacteristic mistakes during the 2nd and 3rd quarters. Entering the 4th quarter with the game tied and the season on the line, the boys made a few big stops on defense and executed the offense to finish with a 3 goal lead.
Players of the game:
Jacob Clements – 19 Saves
Ruben Allen – 4 Goals, 1 Assist
Clinton Allen – 3, Goals, 1 Assist, 4 Ground Balls
Duke James – 2 Goals, 3 Assists
PHHS feel confident heading into Wednesday’s game against Eastlake which will be played at SDSU starting at 7pm. Experiencing and overcoming a lot of adversity this year the team feels they have the mental toughness to overcome an early season 7-8 loss against Eastlake.
