SAN DIEGO — After Point Loma High School defeated Orange Glen, 21-0, in a San Diego Section 3-A football quarterfinal playoff game Saturday night at Mesa College, Mt. Carmel Coach Bill Christopher walked over to congratulate Point Loma Coach Bennie Edens.
Christopher's Mt. Carmel team will meet Point Loma in the section semifinals next Saturday--although Christopher, after seeing the Pointers play, isn't so sure he wants to.
"I don't know if we'll even show up," Christopher told Edens. "Your team looked awfully good out there."
Christopher and his team, of course, are going to show up. But the challenge ahead of them looks imposing.
Point Loma (11-0) dominated Orange Glen from the opening kickoff to the final gun and showcased every phase of its talented football team in the process.
In a starring role was the Pointer defense, which defused Orange Glen's heralded passing game thanks to a big pass rush. Patriot quarterback Sean Gousha, the county's second-leading passer, was held to just 106 yards passing. He completed 9 of 20 passes and was sacked six times for minus-39 yards.
