If its previous week’s loss to Pasadena was tough, the Crescenta Valley High football team’s second consecutive 21-14 loss, this time to Burroughs, was tougher.
Sporting a 14-0 lead early on, the Falcons gave up 21 unanswered points to the league-leading Indians to lose again, falling to fifth place in the Pacific League, on Thursday night, Oct. 28 at Moyse Field.
The Falcons fell to 2-3 in Pacific League play, 4-4 overall. They’ll need to beat Burbank and Arcadia, currently in second and third place in the league, to solidify a playoff spot. Failing that, they need to beat one of the two to retain a .500 record, wherein CV can apply for an at-large bid.
In the game, senior quarterback Paul Perugini had 159 yards passing with an interception. He also ran for 61 yards on 12 rushes.
Sean Johnson was the main back for the Falcons and ran for 60 yards on 18 carries. He had each of the Falcons’ two touchdowns.
Tyler Martinez, Nathan Sarreal and Garrett Stoudt each had a fumble recovery for CV.
The Indians (5-3, 5-0) will play Muir (4-4, 3-2) on Friday and a win for the Indians could boost CV’s playoff chances.
The Falcons will play at Burbank (6-2, 4-1) tomorrow, Friday, at 7 p.m.
