Eastlake Continues to Roll With a Win Over Bel Air
The Eastlake Falcons continue to breeze past their competition as they won their fifth consecutive game on Friday night with a 42-28 triumph over Bel Air. The Falcons scored on their first possession of the game by marching down the field as they utilized three running backs. Bel Air didn't help their cause with a rather inauspicious start to the game when running back Kameron Fisher fumbled on the team's first snap.
Scoring early and often, Eastlake took a 26-0 lead over the Highlanders heading into halftime. To add insult to injury, Eastlake pulled their starting QB Keith Tarango late in the second quarter to rest him, and backup Justin White came in and threw two quick touchdown passes to put the Falcons up by a significant margin.
Bel Air decided to take a page out of Eastlake's book to start the third quarter as the Highlanders pulled starting QB Jesus Contreras in favor of backup Isaac Ybarra. Ybarra ignited a spark for the Highlanders and ending up throwing throwing 3 touchdown passes and rushed for 1 more. The Highlanders made a run in the second half but couldn't overcome their first half deficit. Justin White played brilliantly in relief of Falcon's starting QB Keith Tarango and was the difference maker as he threw 3 touchdown passes leading Eastlake to the victory.
With the win Eastlake moves to 5-1, 3-0 (2-5A) and will play at Parkland next week. Bel Air evens their record at 3-3, 1-2 (2-5A) and will play at Del Valle next Friday night.
