AM Falcons Football Win Their
First in 2014—Shutting Out Hastings High, 27-0
Our Falcons recorded their first
victory of the 2014 season this past Fri Sep. 26, by defeating the visiting
Yellow Jackets from Hastings HS. The final score of 27-0 is indicative of
how much the Falcons controlled the line of scrimmage on both offense and
defense. It was also great seeing as many alumni players and parents as I
did at the game. I can’t say enough how much it means to the team and
coaches when you show your support like that. It’s just fantastic!
After a scoreless first quarter,
the Falcons scored their first TD midway through the second quarter when Jr.
Argenio Albie scored on a 3yd burst. Later in the second quarter the
Falcons made it 14-0 after a 35yd gallop by Jr. Roberto Galindo and that’s how
the first half scoring ended. In the third quarter Sr. James Hanigan, on
a QB keeper, scooted in from 15 yds out to make the score 21-0. Then in
the middle of the fourth quarter Sr. Clifton Mathelus rumbled in for a 27yd TD
to make the final score 27-0. The Falcons used a ball control offense to
grind out more than 400yds rushing giving Hastings little time to be on
offense. When Hastings did have the ball the Falcon defense rose to the occasion
and limited the Yellow Jackets to numerous “3 and out” possessions. The
following are some highlight stats from the game.
