The Murrieta Broncos JPWD1 team brought the house down with a big 46-6 Super Bowl win over the previously undefeated Alta Loma Warriors.

The game was played on the Corona Centennial High School field this past Saturday at 1 p.m. The skies were black and gray and most of the game was played under a downpour of rain and frigid conditions that further tested the will of the teams. The Broncos came out swinging as quarterback Cole Worthy threw a slant route across the middle to receiver Alex Hill on the Broncos first offensive possession of the game that resulted in a touchdown.

"We want the momentum on our side right away. So we are going to strike early,” said Broncos Head Coach Al Gosset, founding president of the Murrieta Broncos Junior All American Youth Football chapter, which is part of the Southern California Jr. All American Football Conference.

The rain made for some difficulties on offense throughout the game but the Bronco boys didn't hold back and unleashed a fury of run and throw plays for four quarters that kept the momentum squarely in their corner. On defense the Broncos line was relentless and completely overwhelmed the Warriors with pressure on every down. They were held to one touchdown and the Broncos blocked the extra point attempt.

The journey to the Super Bowl was no easy task. The Broncos came into the playoffs 8-1 with one season loss coming from the Corona Chargers on a last-minute field goal. The Broncos would get the No. 4-seed heading into the Playoff's and would have to face a stout No. 5-seeded Norco Bengals team and No. 1-seeded Corona Chargers to earn a spot in the Super Bowl. 

The Broncos rolled into the playoffs with a chip on their shoulder and powered their way past Norco with a 52-0 win. In a game self-titled "The Redemption Bowl" the Bronco coaches unleashed the full force of their Broncos offense and defense on the Corona Chargers in a game that was 51 to 0 midway through the fourth quarter and ended up 51-16 after a late game surge by the Chargers. 

This game marks the second Super Bowl win for the Broncos this year both coming from the Jr Pee Wee divisions; first the D1A team swept division going undefeated all year followed by the D1 team.  

Gosset did a masterful job assembling his team of coaches and players and guiding them to the Super Bowl. His tenure as a coach has come to its end in the best way possible having spent the past 10 years coaching youth football. When asked what's next for him, Coach Gosset said: "I'm going to continue to focus on my family, my business and my community."

Thank you for your service to this community for the past decade and for leading us to a Super Bowl.
