The JV team played first and lost the game by two points with a score of 8-6. Morro Bay scored first getting a touchdown to get the lead, but they missed the extra point, so the score was 6-0. Later on, Tranquillity scored a touchdown to tie the game at 6-6. Tranquillity went for a two-point conversion to give them a two-point lead. According to JV player Hunter Whitson, he said, “The quarterback ran to the endzone, but never crossed the goal line, so it should not have counted, but the refs called it as a two-point conversion, and they got the lead. I never realized they had the lead until the 4th quarter because I thought they did not get into the endzone.”
Next week, Morro Bay will be up against the Gustine Reds in an away, non-conference game on Friday, September 13 at 7:30 P.M.
