SAN DIEGO (9-26-15) — When two teams that are not of the same talent level meet some unexpected things can happen.

That is exactly what happened on Friday (Sept. 25) night in Tierrasanta when the Mount Miguel Matadors took on the Serra Conquistadors in a shortened game.MM at SERRA Score

For the record, the Matadors (3-2) took down the Conquistadors (0-5) by a 55-0 margin.

The game was shortened by injury as an ambulance was needed after a devastating hit by DURAN MILLER (4 tackles, 1 sack and 3 QB hurries).  On a Serra punt, Miller laid a crushing block on a Serra player (not being named due to his injuries).  That player was knocked out and was motionless.  Serra coaches and medical personnel were already on their way to the player before the play was over.  After a 30 minute delay, the player was lifted into the ambulance and taken to a local hospital.

Moments later the referee held the game ball in the air signifying that the game was over.  Officially, it is suspended with 58.4 seconds remaining in the third quarter. It will not be resumed.

As far as the actual game play is concerned, BENNY VALADEZ threw for over 200 yards and four touchdowns.  ANDRE GORSUCH (2 rec – 54 yds – 2 TD) was the main touchdown target.  KIKO BORJA (6 rec – 80 yds – 1 TD) was the leading receiver.

Leading the way on the ground was LAMARCUS BUTLER (9 rushes – 89 yds – 1 TD) and ANTOINE HAMILTON (7 rushes – 69 yds – 2 TD’s).

It is worth noting that the Mount Miguel coaching staff asked for the clock to be a “running clock” several times starting at halftime.  But the Serra coaching staff refused to allow the clock to continuously run on all of the requests from the Matador coaching staff.  Had the game continued for another 52 seconds, the referees would have enacted the CIF rule that if the scoring margin is in excess of 40 points, the clock is automatically put into a “running clock” situation.


UPDATE: The player was released from the hospital on Saturday afternoon.
