After easily defeating Pacifica 64-11, Chaminade will now move into the second round of playoffs and face Morro Bay. This game will be difficult to say the least as the Eagles will have to travel 200 miles to Northern California to face the Pirates. Long bus rides can take a major toll on teams, especially during playoffs, so it is vital that the Eagles are well rested and ready to go against a very good Pirates football team.
Morro Bay has an 8-3 record and most recently defeated Inglewood 17-14 to advance and play Chaminade. Now, Morro Bay is a rush heavy team that averages nearly 300 rushing yards a game and merely 75 passing yards. Their star running back is Derek Viles, a 5’6 junior who has already rushed for 15 touchdowns this season. Chaminade generally does an outstanding job against the run game and its defense must be ready to stop the run in this game against Morro Bay. The Pirates average 34 points a game, so it is safe to say that this game will be a high scoring affair.
Chaminade faces a much tougher test this week and are hoping to win and continue on its journey towards a CIF championship.
