In a game that ended with an almost combined 300 rushing yards, nearly 200 passing yards, and a final score of 41-3, it’s safe to say the Owls dominated in their win against the Fairfax Stampede.

 

The temperature was 87 degrees on that warm Friday night of September 15th. The Owls previously came off of a “feel-good” win against North Canyon High School, gaining momentum back that was previously lost in a game against Canyon View, where the Owls were bludgeoned 42-0 at home. Fortunately, two weeks after the Canyon View debacle, the Owls were able to get the job done on the road against an inferior opponent, as the Fairfax Stampede sat at 0-4 following the loss to our Owls. Every loss for Fairfax this year has resulted in a 40+ deficit. This game actually resulted in the most points the Stampede has scored so far this season with 13. The Owls seemed to have nothing but “blowout” on their minds.

 

The offense rolled on all four cylinders this game, having 292 combined rushing yards and 196 total passing and receiving yards. The game-leading rusher was running back #17 J. Cook, with 183 yards on the ground. The team’s leading receiver was #6 Christian Garcia, with 2 receptions for 71 yards. His longest grab of the contest resulted in 46 yards. The games leading scorer was #1 Johnathan Daniels, who was able to get into the endzone 3 times that night, resulting in 18 total points for his squad.

 

But you can’t win football games without defense, and the Owls D played lights out, only allowing 13 points. The team’s secondary completely shut down the Stampede’s passing attack, having two interceptions. One coming from #4 Xavier Matthews, and the other coming from #11 Camacho. The Owls leader in tackles on the night belongs to #22 Lorenzo Rodriguez, with 4 solo tackles, 1 assisted tackle, and combining for 5 total tackles. One of Rodriguez’s tackles resulted in a sack, which also happened to be the squad’s only sack of the night. His stats should easily solidify him as a key player on this Owls defensive unit. The tackle leading runner-up was #52 Joel Rendon, with 3 solo tackles, 1 assisted, and 4 total tackles on the night.

 

It’s easy to say the Owls Varsity football squad is off to a scorching hot start, going 3-1 in their first four games. They look to keep momentum high by dominating on both sides of the ball, as well as staying healthy in order to play to the team’s fullest extent.

About the Contributor
Anthony Mimoso
Anthony Mimoso, Sports Editor
Anthony Mimoso is a returning journalism student here at Agua Fria High School. Anthony is one of the Sports Reporters and the Sports Editor. He is now a senior, 18 years old, and finishing his last year of high school, already having his future career(s) somewhat planned. When I asked him about his future and what he wanted to do he said, “ I want to be a journalist or do music theory”, when I asked him why, he explained that it was because he has always enjoyed both of those so either would make him happy. He went on further to say that it was always interesting and he feels like he could succeed in either one of those careers. His having his future planned out early is what he said was his greatest accomplishment and what he’s most proud of himself for. Most of Anthony's favorite hobbies have to do with sports. When I asked him if he had done any sports in the past, he said he did football for his freshman and sophomore years but did not continue the next year(s) because he wanted to continue focusing on his grades in school and just school in general so he can be successful in the future. I asked Anthony if he likes Arizona and if he was born in Arizona and he stated that he is not originally from here. When I asked him where he was born he told me he was originally from San Diego, California but moved here in 2015 when he was only ten years old. Later on in the interview, I wanted to know how Anthony thinks other people see him so I asked him how he thinks his family would describe him and his answer was,” I think they would probably describe me as funny and willing to do things.” I then went on to ask him how he would describe himself and he said, “ Outgoing, and extroverted at times if I feel comfortable with you, but mostly reserved”. I also brought up inspirations and asked him who his biggest inspiration in his life is and he said his mom. I asked him why and he said she's his biggest inspiration because she’s gone through so much in her life and still tries to be her best self for him and now she pushes him to be his best self and continue to pursue his dreams.
