In the game of the weekend between two ultra-talented teams in OC Elite and Cal Strength, OC Elite was the final team standing in double overtime in a 21-14 victory. 

The game started off with a bang as OC Elite went down the field and had a big time run, with Cal Strength giving up a touchdown and points for the first time in seven quarters. The Cal Strength defense has been dominant throughout the whole season. OC Elite has talent all over the field with multiple Division I commits.

The rest of the first half was back and forth filled with defensive dominance. The offenses couldn’t get going as they were just long drawn out drives. Nothing led to points as the first half score ended with OC Elite maintaining a 7-0 lead.

Quigley started the second half at quarterback, and the offense quickly started moving. Monte Vista senior running back Gavin Cribb had a great game as he scored the touchdown to tie the game at 7-7. 

Cal Strength was in control all of the second half, but OC Elite’s defense made just enough plays down the stretch to keep the score even at the end of regulation.

OC Elite scored in just three plays to begin overtime, and then came back the Cal Strength offense, led by San Ramon Valley junior quarterback Jack Quigley, who tied the game on a rushing touchdown after a few hard fought plays.

In the second overtime, Cal Strength came close but could not score. Cal Strength’s defense came in and played with immense passion, but OC Elite drove to the 1-yard line and scored to win the ballgame, improving its record to 2-2 while handing Cal Strength its first defeat at 3-1.

Quigley’s 79 yards were a team high for Cal Strength, which came one week after his 157 yards and three touchdowns gave him West Coast Preps Athlete of the Week honors. He added 13 yards on the ground.

Cribb led Cal Strength with 36 rushing yards and one touchdown.

Riordan senior Aden Jackson finished with 52 receiving yards on four catches, while Monte Vista junior tight end Jack Endries was the No. 2 target on the evening with 26 yards on two catches.
