2021 EAGLES

St. John Bosco 41 - Eagles 16

MISSION VIEJO, CA., October 22, 2021 — Santa Margarita Catholic finished the most grueling three-game stretch of its regular schedule versus the “Top 3” of the Trinity League. Friday’s game was a tough battle with highly touted St. John Bosco. The Eagles had trouble early and couldn’t escape some miscues, and the Braves’ ability to capitalize on them, and fell, 41-16. SMC kept the game close, trailing only 21-3 at half, but two Bosco scoring drives in the third quarter put the game out of reach. Jaxon Potter did throw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter (to Ty Benefield and Blain Eiseman). Blake Wilson led the defense with 10 tackles while Donovan Comestro snagged his third interception of the season. Also, Hero Kanu registered his eighth quarterback sack of the year. The Eagles play their final Trinity League regular season game and home game this week against Orange Lutheran. Both schools will be looking to improve their records in preparation for the CIF-Southern Section Playoffs.
