The Marauders (2-1-1) gave the packed home-field crowd a thrill, grabbing the initial lead in the game and going into the locker room at halftime tied at 10-10. Mira Mesa took a 2-0 lead over the Jackrabbits (3-1). For the second week in a row, a Poly snap on a punt sailed over Matt Kromminga’s head and out of the end zone, this one with 4:34 left in the first quarter. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Poly came back to take the lead on its second possession of the second quarter. On the second play of the drive, quarterback Millicent Olawale found Travon Patterson behind the secondary. Patterson initially stretched out but couldn’t hold on, but as he fell to his back the ball landed on top of him and he cradled it for the score. The Jackrabbits took a 10-2 lead on the next possession when Kromminga was good on a 28-yard field goal with 5:22 left in the half. Mira Mesa answered back, driving 80 yards on 12 plays. Four completions by Boise State-bound quarterback Michael Coughlin played a big part in the drive, as well as a controversial holding call on a punt, which allowed the Marauders to maintain possession when the drive appeared stalled. Running back Anthony Walker capitalized, diving in from the 1 with 28 seconds left in the half. Poly held Mira Mesa to minus-4 yards rushing in the first half. The difference was in the second half when the Jackrabbits scored a pair of unanswered touchdowns for the victory. Fenika Enosa scored the first on a 2-yard play-action pass from Olawale with four seconds left in the third quarter. The final score came on a 7-yard run by Ryan Smith with 4:54 left to play. The Jackrabbits defense dominated, sacking Coughlin eight times for minus-62 yards. Jurray Casey and Kenny Rowe led the charge with a pair of solo sacks each. “The only thing I can criticize our defense about is giving up three first downs on third-and-longs,” Poly coach Raul Lara said. “We can’t give up third-and-14s. We have to be smart and make the tackle.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

Co-chairman Tony Fernandes posted on Twitter after QPR’s 1-1 draw at Burton to express sympathy for Jake Bidwell and declare that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is “working hard” to turn things around.Left-back Bidwell could be out for up to four months after suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder in the game against Rangers manager Hasselbaink’s former club.Jimmy working hard.
