LA JOLLA COUNTRY DAY TORREY FOOTBALL TEAM TAMES ESCONDIDO'S WHITE TIGERS

The La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) Torrey football team defeated the Escondido Charter White Tigers, 42-3, in a non-league game played at Escondido Charter last Friday night, October 7.

Country Day got on the scoreboard first on junior running back Sage Burmeister’s 19-yard touchdown run.

That gave LJCD an early 7-0 first quarter lead.

Later in the first quarter, junior kicker Hunter Kildjian opened the scoring for the White Tigers when he sent a 26-yard field goal whistling through the uprights to trim the margin to 7-3 in favor of the Torreys.

Unfortunately for Escondido Charter (0-5), that’s as close as they would get on this evening as Country Day (5-0) pulled away down the stretch to clinch the victory.

Burmeister would proceed to add three more touchdown runs of 7, 4, and 40 yards, respectively, and junior running back Colin McMahon managed to have touchdown runs of 18 and 6 yards of his own to pretty much seal it for LJCD.

The Torreys were paced by the performances of Burmeister (18 carries, 147 yards, 4 TD’s), McMahon (6 carries, 50 yards, 2 TD’s, 2 tackles, 10 assists), junior quarterback Eddie Garcia (13-of-18, 189 yards), senior wide receiver Daniel Henry (4 receptions, 100 yards), senior tight end Nick Schlossberg (4 receptions, 22 yards, 4 tackles, 8 assists), junior linebacker Josh Church (5 tackles, 8 assists 1 sack), and junior lineman Dustin Hughes (2 tackles, 9 assists).

UC CENTURIONS SPEARED BY SERRA CONQUISTADORS

The University City (UC) Centurions suffered a tough 27-13 loss to the Serra Conquistadors in a non-league football game at Serra last Friday, Sept. 23.

UC jumped out to an early 7-0 lead when senior running back Jordan Green gathered in a six-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Jack Minnick with 6:06 left in the first quarter.

With the score all tied up at 7-7, Green got into the end zone once again, this time on a touchdown run from three yards out to give the Centurions a cushion of 13-7 with 4:35 remaining in the second quarter.

Unfortunately for UC, that was as close as they would get as the Conquistadors would pull away and clinch the victory in the second half.

With the loss, the Centurions saw their record fall to 2-2 on the young season.

Meanwhile, senior running back Kenneth Martey matriculated the ball 55 yards on eight carries, but it wasn’t quite enough as the La Jolla Vikings (1-3) were shutout 34-0 by the St. Augustine Saints at Mesa College.

HICKS LEADS UC TO VICTORY OVER VIKINGS

The University City (UC) Centurion men's basketball team defeated the La Jolla Vikings, 53-37, in a Western League game played at La Jolla High on Friday night, January 28.

Behind the performances of 6-foot-4 senior forwards Amir Hicks and Tim Patrick and 5-foot-9 senior guard Stephen Rivera, UC jumped out to a quick 7-4 lead and opened it up to 15-10 early in the second quarter.

By the time both battling ballclubs were heading into the locker room at halftime, the Centurions were enjoying a 21-13 cushion.

After the intermission, led by the play of 6-foot-5 senior forward Nick Reynolds, the Vikings outscored UC 18-6 to take a 31-27 advantage at the end of the third quarter.

In the fourth quarter, Patrick raced in for three dunks and Hicks hit 4-of-6 free throws from the charity stripe as the Centurions outscored La Jolla 26-6 down the stretch to pull away for the victory.

“When Tim (Patrick) dunks the ball the way he’s capable of doing, it gives the rest of our team the energy to pull through,” said Rivera. “And sometimes, there’s some trouble with free throws, but Amir (Hicks) was awesome in the clutch.”

Hicks finished with a game-high 18 points and 15 rebounds and Patrick added 14 points and 8 rebounds for UC. Meanwhile, all 12 of Rivera’s points came on four three-point field goals.

“I was just trying to make my shots,” said Rivera. “Luckily, they were falling in. My shot felt good. I have confidence in it.”

“We beat them (the Centurions), 37-35, at their place earlier in the season,” said Viking coach Kamal Assaf. “This time, we let the game get away from us. Hey, that’s life. We get to play again.”

For La Jolla, Reynolds tallied a team-high 11 points.

In a Western League women's contest played prior to the men's game, the UC Lady Centurions were victorious over the Lady Vikings of La Jolla by a score of 41-22.

In Coastal League basketball action, the tenth-ranked La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) men's team suffered a tough 72-65 loss to the eighth-ranked Francis Parker Lancers.

Six-foot sophomore guard Sage Burmeister totaled 17 points to lead the Torreys.
