SAN DIEGO – The visiting Monarchs could not overcome their sputtering offense and lack of depth as they succumbed to Patrick Henry (2-1) in Friday’s (Sept. 11) non-league encounter on the Patriots’ soil, 48-7.Screen Shot 2015-09-12 at 2.38.34 AM

Monte Vista’s lone score came on a 56-yard touchdown pass from quarterback DENNIS DAHLIN to TRE OWENS, enabling the Monarchs to avoid the shutout, that made the score 38-7.

The Monarchs trailed 45-7 at halftime and played with a running clock for the second week in a row.

“We’re having real trouble stopping people,” said Monte Vista coach RON HAMAMOTO. “But the bottom line is, I hope our kids don’t quit on us. It’s tough. We keep improving and I think we’ll be okay in a week or two.”

The Patriots got off to a quick start on Friday, leaving a path of Monarchs in their wake.

Izay Williams had a knock-down sack on the ensuing possession, then Andrew Hertach had a fumble recovery for a short field.

Cook then had an 11-yard touchdown run, as part of three first half touchdowns for the senior.

Shivels added an explosive punt return off a bouncer to make a 67-yard highlight-reel score shedding a handful would-be tacklers. Then he turned the trick again for a long score on a short flare to the right that he turned into a 71-yard score.
