Football: CHS Defeats Mountain Empire 21-14

The Islanders run a play against Mountain Empire High School to win 21-14.

After a tough loss against Mar Vista High School the weekend before, Coronado’s Varsity Football team was prepared for this Friday’s game against Mountain Empire. “With five starters out this past Friday, we had to have a lot of our players step it up,” comments Coach Kurt Hines. The Islanders’ quarterback, junior Colter Maldonado, played a great game throughout, scoring two of Coronado’s touchdowns. Being a dynamic player, Maldonado had the most rushing yardage along with 219 yards of passing. Senior Colton Cline completed five passes, totaling to 66 yards, followed by junior James Witthoft, who completed two resulting in 45 yards.

The defensive line held strong in the fourth quarter to secure the win for Coronado, 21-14.

The team’s current record is now four wins to one loss.
