Mustangs No Match For Falcons

Joe Suh found the endzone three times against Muir.

(Glendale) The Crescenta Valley Falcons hosted the Muir Mustangs Friday night at Moyse Stadium on the campus of Glendale High School. The Falcons did it on the ground and through the air en route to a 38-8 win over the Mustangs in Pacific League action.

CV got the ball the to start the game and went on a 10 play march that covered 59 yards to get on the board. Joe Suh got the call on a nine yard run to cap the drive. The drive was aided by a call on the Mustangs for roughing the punter.

A few minutes later the Falcons had a chance to get on the board again when the Mustang’s Brian Love tripped on a punt attempt at his own 25. CV couldn’t manage much in the way yardage and Chris Wood came on for a 34 yard field goal attempt but the kick sailed wide.

The Falcons maintained

Brian Erickson and the Falcon defense bottled up the Mustang offense.

their seven point advantage through the rest of the first quarter and into the second. With 9:45 left in the second period Suh scored again on a four  yard run. Wood added the extra point for the 14-0 lead.

Suh got his third touchdown of the half to finish off a four play 41 yard drive. Suh’s touchdown came off a screen from Cole Doyle who found Suh on a screen pass. Suh did the rest going untouched 35 yards to paydirt. Suh finished the night gaining 117 yards on 16 carries with two scores on the ground and another 48 yards receiving with another score.

A 47 yard pass from Doyle to Tyler Lobianco and a 20 yard field goal from Wood capped the first half scoring barrage for the Falcons.

On the scoring drive Muir head coach Antyone Sims received his second unsportsmanlike conduct foul and was ejected from the game.

The Mustang offense was stifled by the Falcon defense and was unable to put together sustained drives for the entire first half.

The third quarter saw no scoring from either teams and it wasn’t until 10:38 on the clock in the final frame that CV got on the board again.  Doyle got his second touchdown pass on the night on a three yard strike to Jordan Nelson.

Both teams brought on substitutions in the waning minutes of the game and Muir was finally able to get on the board. Tyquise Solomon got the score on a keeper from nine yards away. The drive was highlighted by a 50 yard bomb from Solomon to Nick Moore. Moore was one of the few bright spots on a tough night for the Stangs. Moore hauled in 6 catches for 112 yards.

CV will take their undefeated record on the road next week to Pasadena to take on the Bulldogs while Muir will be back in Glendale to take on Hoover.

    @NWO, LOL! Who were the players that you thought were Koreans that played at SG?

    I agree with Falcon1. I coached at SG for a while, and most of the “Asians” that did play football were Korean.

    Demographic isn’t the issue why a school has a perennial losing football program. Winning is the issue and winning is related to good coaching. If a program hires a good coach and wins, than nevermind the Chinese and Koreans, you would start seeing Martians and aliens coming out for the team.

    That’s part of it, but maybe not the whole story. CV has a significant percentage of Asian students, but they remain in the minority. I suspect that if Arcadia’s Asian kids were mostly Korean instead of Chinese (and there are plenty of Korean kids at Arcadia), football participation rates among them might be closer to what Arcadia has than to what CV has, and if CV’s Asians were mostly Chinese, they would probably participate in football at a much higher rate than they do at Arcadia.

    You see something similar within CV’s own school district. Glendale and Hoover are overwhelmingly Armenian, while CV has only a significant minority of Armenian students. CV gets a far stronger contribution from Armenian kids than both Glendale and Hoover put together despite (or, I would argue, because of) having far fewer.

    The Koreans (CV) develop a real passion for football. The Chinese ( Temple city, Arcadia ) not so much.

    I know that there is no transitive property of football scores, but Hoover played CV tougher than John Muir did. I was wondering when was the last time CV had a four game streak against Muir – has it ever happened? – but now I’m wondering when was the last time Hoover beat the Stangs. Has it ever happened?
