SAN DIEGO – Friday’s eight-man contest between visiting Foothills Christian and Ocean View Christian would provide a challenge to even the most experienced of scorekeepers.

ELI HALE started the game off with kick return for 70 yards for Foothills Christian, but Ocean View rattled off 26-straight points to end the first half.

The Knights were able to match the scores on many occasions, but just not all that the Patriots had to offer Friday afternoon.
