Jose Silva led the running game averaging over 20 yards per carry and had his own TD. Senior wide receiver Clark Morris led the receiving with an average of 39 yards per catch putting up 1 touchdown. Full back Cesar Ventura and wide receiver Jason Cisneros were also contributors in the run and pass game.

Defensive end Harrison Hobbs racked up another sack and had his own score of the night with a safety. Cornerback Cisneros shut down every pass that went his way and had 3 pass deflections while making his way on the board with a 35-yard field goal.
