Coach Robbie Robinson’s Wolfpack is back on track, having defeated Temecula Valley 47-21 last week. The Pack is led by Senior quarterback Carson Luna. He threw three touchdown passes against the Golden Bears.
Great Oak ran right through Temecula Valley’s defense, gaining 339 yards on the ground. Senior running back Jakob Certeza ran for 193 yards on 19 carries. He also scored three of the Wolfpack’s touchdowns.
With the victory over Temecula Valley, the Wolfpack’s record is now 4-5. They are looking to make Murrieta Mesa their next victim and close out the year at a respectable 5-5. There is also a long shot hope for the winner of this game to receive a CIF Playoff invitation.
Murrieta Mesa suffered its worst defeat of the season Friday night Coach Justin Schaeffer’s Rams are looking to rebound in their finale and improve their record to 7-3—the best in the history of this young football program.
Parker Erickson, a senior, will quarterback the Rams again this week. He has started the last three games for Murrieta Mesa because starter Chase Chambers is out for the season after suffering a knee injury. Erickson led the Rams to their first league victory over Temecula Valley two weeks ago.
The Rams are ready to put last week's loss to the CIF Champion Broncos behind them and look to tackle the Golden Bears.
Senior Khalil Sharpe leads the Rams' prolific air attack. Sharpe set an Inland Empire All-Time Reception record last week with the 180th catch of his prep career. He will be flanked by Mesa’s other talented receivers, Gilbert Toves and Daniel Castro.
With Chambers gone and Erickson at QB, Kyler Vasquez has taken on the bulk of the running attack.
Murrieta Mesa‘s defensive is also looking to get back on track against Temecula Valley. This team can play defense. The Ram defensive core are linebackers Clayton Willis, Dallin Inman and Chandler Woodward.
Defensive linemen Nick Tejada, Ozzie Llamas, Bryson Bridges, Garrett Andrews and Wesley Scott are looking forward to showing the rest of the Southwestern League just how talented they really are. It seems the whole league has a bad game when they play the Broncos.
The defensive secondary consists of Davian Neitz, Alec Salcedo, Dylan McDonald and Billy Montoya, who round out the rest of the Ram defensive starters. Look for this bunch to give Luna lots of trouble all evening.
Game time is 7 p.m. at Murrieta Mesa Stadium. Come out and give your support to the Rams as they celebrate their break through season.
