Escalon Times - - SPORTS - By MARK VA­LEN­CIA Spe­cial To The Times

Ac­tion on the grid­iron for the Escalon Out­laws this week saw the teams split their games against the Calav­eras Jr. Red­skins. Fol­low­ing is a brief re­cap of each level.

Var­sity

The Escalon Out­laws Var­sity con­tin­ued their fast start with the road game against Calav­eras. The Out­laws set the tone stop­ping the Jr. Red­skins on their first pos­ses­sion forc­ing a punt. Escalon took their first pos­ses­sion in a steady drive that cul­mi­nated in a tough run through the de­fense by Damien Tom.

Escalon would score on each of its first three pos­ses­sions. Af­ter Tom’s score the Out­laws reached the end zone on the next two drives with the ef­forts from the feet of Colton Panero. The of­fen­sive line did not have any prob­lems con­trol­ling the line of scrim­mage. The line is an­chored in the cen­ter by PJ Flores.

Tom would add another touch­down in the sec­ond half tak­ing the ball into the cen­ter of the line, then bounc­ing his run to the out­side drag­ging a de­fender across the goal line. The Out­laws wanted to show that they were not only a run­ning team and scored through the air on a 55 yard pass from Kaden Christensen to Steven Gately. Gately walked the tight rope along the right side­line while out­run­ning four de­fend­ers to the end zone.

Escalon’s de­fense con­tin­ued to stran­gle their op­po­nents with another shut out. Calav­eras could barely move the football rarely cross­ing into Escalon ter­ri­tory. The fi­nal score was 37-0. The Out­laws will next be de­fend­ing their home field against the Tuolumne Bears, Satur­day, Sept. 12.

Ju­nior Var­sity

The Ju­nior Var­sity was up to the task against the Jr. Red­skins. The Escalon de­fense squashed Calav­eras each time they brought the football to the line of scrim­mage. Escalon won the con­test 38-0.

Car­son Prim was the first to reach pay dirt for the Out­laws. Ja­cob Red­ding rushed to the end zone two times him­self. In be­tween the touch­downs the Out­laws de­fense paid div­i­dends with a blocked punt by Luke An­der­son that was re­cov­ered deep in Calav­eras ter­ri­tory.

The Out­laws added two more touch­downs on the ground by Ty Harris and Chris­tian Tinoco. The Out­laws were able to run wild as the of­fen­sive line regularly had the de­fense on their heels, push­ing them wher­ever they wanted to go.

Novice

The Escalon Out­laws Novice bat­tled, but came up short 13-0. The Escalon de­fense held their ground most of the day be­ing led by CJ Miller, Ay­den Wil­son and Ryker Peters. The Out­laws made it tough for the Jr. Red­skins. A cou­ple mis­steps cost Escalon, al­low­ing long runs from scrim­mage to ac­count for the scores.

The Out­laws of­fense strug­gled to find a rhythm, only threat­en­ing in­side the Jr. Red­skins red zone one time. The of­fense did have from bright mo­ments from Caleb Ca­vanaugh and Owen Nash run­ning well us­ing their blocks to get to the open field.

Jr. Novice

The Jr. Novice Out­laws worked hard in their ex­hi­bi­tion with the Jr. Red­skins. Of­fen­sively the Out­laws were led by Kyrin Bara­jas and Ja­cob Ca­vanaugh. The de­fense strug­gled, but con­tin­ued to work against the Calav­eras of­fense. The de­fense was led by Austin Cul­lum and Hay­den McPher­son. The Jr. Novice Out­laws play with energy and a “never quit” at­ti­tude.
