Final Fight for JV

Written by Luke Hiserman

Prior to the aforementioned Shoe Game, our talented junior varsity team faced off with the Carmel junior varsity team. While there is no trophy to compete for the game is often referred to as “The Sock Game”. With bragging rights on the line, the two teams went head to head at eleven thirty on the morning of November fifteenth. The game was a clash of two well groomed defenses and as a result the first half consisted largely of turnovers and punts from both teams. To begin the second half Carmel struck first with an eighty two yard kick return for a touchdown. Next offensive series for the Padres resulted in a forty yard touchdown pass. Nick Coppla ends the drought for the Breakers with an exciting fifty two yard quarterback keep late in the third quarter making the score 13-6 in favor of the Padres. Unfortunately, Carmel scored again on their next drive with a twenty four yard touchdown pass increasing the score to 19-6. Late in the fourth quarter the Breakers made a second effort to come back. The offense drove down to Carmel’s eight yard line with the help of an thirty five yard screen pass to Josh Watson and another impressive run by Nick Coppla taking the Breakers into the red zone. With a their final attempt on fourth down an impressive run by Cheort Maartens up the middle seemingly crossed the goal line, however the official call was about an inch short short of six points. The defense made one last sIMG_0989tand with a safety led by Kyle Groben and Kane Miller to add two points to the Breakers score. While the game was hard fought the Breakers fell to the Padres 19-8. The Junior Varsity team finished 2-8 overall, however as pointed out by their coaches each week the team improved and had three close games to end their season against King City, Greenfield, and Carmel. Great job this season, Breakers!
