Using its ball/clock control offense to near perfection, Monterey Trail shut down Union Mine’s highly touted offense which was limited to two first-half possessions, five for the game.
“We failed to capitalize when we had our opportunities. Unfortunately, for the first time this year, our offense did not click,” said Rattler coach Mike Scott whose son, Payton, quarterbacks the run-oriented Rattlers.
The Mustangs scored the only points on a touchdown with just over three minutes left in the game.
“Our kids worked their butts off and gave everything they had — I’m proud of every one of them,” Scott said. “Congratulations to Monterey Trail, they played very well.”
The Union Mine Jr. Midgets and Midget levels both fell in the semifinals the week before.
