MBHS went head-to-head with Mission Prep this week in an away non-conference game. This game was also Mission Prep’s Homecoming Game, and MBHS came into the game with high expectations. Before entering the game, Mission Preps’ record was 2-5, and MBHS’s was 3-3.
The J.V team played first and lost their game with a score of 48 to 20. MBHS was able to score several times throughout the game, but the defense was unable to hold the Mission offense back. Phoenix Popp ran into the endzone twice, and Nicky Johnson threw a touchdown as well. Although MBHS put up a solid 20 points, MIssion was able to get past MBHS, dropping the J.V team’s record to 3-3
The Varsity squad was up next, and they lost their game with a score of 42-7. The offense of the Pirates started off slow, not scoring until the fourth quarter for the second week in a row. On the other hand, the defense played decent against Mission’s pass offensive, allowing the Quarterback to go 5/7 for 75 yards, but he threw two touchdowns. The MBHS defense could not hold the running backs, however, as Mission ran for a combined 355 yards. The MBHS passing attack was decent as well, as Kevin Franco threw an interception in the third quarter and a touchdown in the fourth quarter. MBHS record falls to 3-4 on the season.
