LAKESIDE – Players, coaches, officials, and fans took a moment to catch their collective breath at halftime on Friday night at El Capitan High School.

After all, the Vaqueros and Patrick Henry had just combined for 87 points in the first 24 minutes, as the Patriots led 54-33.

What?!?!?

The Vaqueros racked up 521 yards of total offense but lost a wild 60-52 contest to visiting Henry that had a little bit of everything. Maybe even a little bit of defense.

Vaquero running back Donny Green rushed for 224 yards and two touchdowns, while senior quarterback Wick Hauser had 244 yards of total offense, including 108 on the ground, and rushed for three touchdowns.

Henry’s Omar Hammond scored the first touchdown, but Hauser helped the Vaqueros counter with a 13-yard score.

Minutes later, Cameron Stoklosa made a leaping catch for a 49-yard score and a 14-6 Patriot advantage.

Green had a pair of runs from 54 and 19 yards out to retake the lead for El Capitan.

However, the Pats’ Matthew Castillo, who threw a touchdown pass to Luke Carrillo-Batson for a 34-yard touchdown.

With Henry lead 32-20, the defense showed up to make a play as the Vaqueros’ J.J. Joralemon intercepted a pass, but fumbled the ball, however another El Cap player, Trenton March, picked up the ball and ran it in for a touchdown.

The score would be the first of five touchdowns scored in the final 5:35 of the first half.
