     Coming in hot from a great league season, the varsity football team was looking for one last celebration as they went in for their last game of the season.

     Last Friday was the long-awaited rivalry game between Poway and  Rancho Bernardo. Not only was this an exciting game, but also a special night for the senior football players and cheerleaders on their senior night.

     The game started off with great offense plays by the Titans, scoring their first and only touchdown of the quarter in the beginning three minutes of play time.

     Second quarter was the game changer for both teams. The Broncos scored their first touchdown of the night, causing the Titans to strengthen their defense.

     During the remainder of the quarter, two more touchdowns were scored for Poway.

      “I felt very confident in our score by the time the second quarter was over, as we had a total of three touchdowns by then,” senior defensive guard Carlos Betancourt said.

     Following halftime, the Broncos scored a touchdown, the only one during all of the third quarter. One last touchdown was scored by the Titans during the fourth quarter, leaving the final score to 28-14 and a win for the Titans. 

     “I felt very proud of my personal performance but also by my teammates’ hardwork and perseverance which led us to the win,” senior wide receiver Eric Gant said.

     Dylan Curry’s 41-yard pass was likely what made him MVP and rock winner for the night.

     With this win, Poway 7-3 overall for their regularly scheduled season, and 4-1 in the Palomar League, placing them in a tie for first. The Titans will go on in the playoffs in two weeks, here at home Nov 12 at 7 p.m.
