ESCONDIDO (10-04-15) — After a fast start in which the Griffins averaged more than 50 points per game in their first two outings, they hit a streak of inconsistency, suffering three straight losses.

 

Their latest Southern Conference setback came Saturday night (Oct. 3) against Palomar 43-24 at Chick Embrey Field.

 

Grossmont (2-3, 0-2) has been shut out in six of its last eight quarters. In a 17-7 loss to Golden West (Sept. 26) the Griffins’ lone score came in the final period.

 

It was even more frustrating for the Griffins at Palomar, where they scored all of their points in the third quarter to lead 24-22 heading into the fourth period.

A Palomar 4-yard TD pass from Austin Early to Wayne Gannon closed the Griffins advantage to 21-19. Early finished by hitting 30 of 47 passes for 408 yards and 3 touchdowns.

 

Four minutes later the Griffins closed out their scoring on a 25-yard field goal by JORDAN REECE.

 

After that it was all Palomar (3-2, 1-1).

 

When the Griffins were clicking on that lucrative stretch in the third quarter, running back NEHEMIAH BROWN scored on runs of 24 and 6 yards.

 

Grossmont broke into the scoring column earlier in the period when KURTIS BROOKS returned a blocked punt for 15 yards and a touchdown.

 

Palomar bullied the Grossmont defense for 33 first downs for 559 yards.
