Falcons Fall Short at Mount Carmel

The good news for the Falcons as they lost a hard fought game at Mt. Carmel 17-14 is that Sundevil Lucas Johnson will be playing for SDSU next year. The dual-threat quarterback bedeviled the Falcon defense and led a come from behind drive to cap the game. Beau Morgans may have set a personal record for number of tackles, but it’s not good news for the defense when a defensive back makes so many stops on running plays. Mt. Carmel scored first with a field goal after a 54 yard drive that stalled on a 3rd down tackle by Matthew Feeler.

Ben Spitters went out with an injury and Johnny Hastings took over as Falcon quarterback, driving 54 yards to the Sundevil 9 on a 31 yard pass to Lukas Braun and running of Luke Duerr. But then the Sundevils recovered a fumble and drove the ball back, Johnson running and passing, and running back Rashid Shaheed picking up yardage. Johnson passed to convert a 4th down, and then completed a 34 yard touchdown pass to go up 10-0 as the half ended.

Sully O’Brien opened the 2nd half returning the kickoff from the 5 to the 30, then Feeler broke free and carried 65 yards to the Sundevil 5, and Feeler ran for the touchdown. 10-7. On their next possession Hastings hit Braun for 49 yards to go ahead 14-10. Then Johnson went to work again driving 75 yards, scrambling for first downs when all receivers were covered, and converting twice on 4th down. A 15 yard touchdown pass put Mt. Carmel ahead to stay.

Torrey Pines had another chance for a comeback early in the 4th quarter, driving from their 9 all the way to the Sundevil 15. But on 3rd down a pass fell incomplete in the end zone, and then a field goal attempt was no good. This week Torrey Pines closes out their season hosting La Costa Canyon in one of their greatest rivalries.
