Behind the performance of junior running back Sage Burmeister (21 carries, 114 yards, 1 TD), the La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) Torrey football team trumped the Tri-City (TCC) Christian Eagles, 23-12, in their season opener at Country Day on Friday, Sept. 2.

A seven-yard carry for a touchdown by junior Colin McMahon (11 carries, 64 yards, 1 TD) gave Country Day a slim cushion of 7-6 in the second quarter.

But, Burmeister’s five-yard burst for a score in the fourth quarter enabled the Torreys to build a 16-12 lead.

Later in the fourth quarter, a 12-yard interception return for a touchdown by junior linebacker Josh Church (2 INT’s, 46 yards, 1 TD) sealed the victory for LJCD.

In other season-opening football action:

The University City (UC) Centurions traveled down to the South Bay to topple the Hilltop Lancers 42-34.

UC was paced by the play of running backs Sam Haynes (18 carries, 188 yards, 4 TD’s), Jordan Green (13 carries, 88yards), and Abraham Jimenez (4 carries, 37 yards, 2 TD’s).

Meanwhile, the La Jolla Vikings made the commute to Carmel Valley, only to suffer a tough 27-7 defeat at the hands of the Mt. Carmel Sundevils.

Kenneth Martey (5 carries, 24 yards, 1 TD) matriculated the ball into the end zone from 11 yards out to pull La Jolla within six points at 13-7 in the third quarter.

The Vikings were also led by the performances of Mark Pollan (11 carries, 54 yards) and Chance Abbott (4 carries, 51 yards).

Finally, in the battle of the Knights, the Bishop's School Knights lanced the View Park Knights from Crenshaw by a score of 35-20 in a contest played at La Jolla High School's Gene Edwards Stadium.
