Hillmen Ready For Showdown With Central Catholic Tonight

Following their 65-52 victory last week against previously undefeated Patterson, the Hillmen (12-0) continue their playoff quest tonight with a showdown against top-seeded and also undefeated Central Catholic (12-0), with a birth in the Division III section championship game at stake. The Hillmen have churned out 1024 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground in two playoffs games thanks to excellent offensive line play. The performance of the offensive line will be pivotal tonight as they will look to open up holes for Owen Scott (1487 yards rushing, 21 touchdowns), Jared Halbert (1146 yards rushing, 18 touchdowns), and Waylen Cozad (858 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns), against a solid Central Catholic defensive line. On the defensive side of the ball, the Hillmen will be faced with the challenge of containing running backs Justin Rice (1685 yards, 18 touchdowns), Jared Rice (898 yards, 12 touchdowns), and Montell Bland (347 yards, 12 touchdowns). Quarterback Hunter Petlansky also serves as a dual threat with 1371 yards passing and 14 touchdowns, and 658 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. Placer quarterback Marcus Ante is coming off a strong game last week in which he threw two touchdown passes, including a 65 yard strike to Scott and will look to keep the momentum rolling tonight. Come on out and support your Hillmen in what figures to be an exciting battle tonight at 7pm!

Hillmen Tame Tigers; Face Central Catholic Next

The Hillmen (12-0) took their offensive show on the road Friday night and did not disappoint, piling up 656 yards of total offense and nine touchdowns, to tame the Patterson Tigers (11-1) 65-52, setting up a showdown with undefeated Central Catholic this Friday night.  Owen Scott continued his impressive run with 450 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns, Waylen Cozad added 148 yards on the ground and three touchdowns, and Jared Halbert had 118 yards and a touchdown on the ground as well, as the offensive line once again controlled the line of scrimmage, leading the way for the offensive explosion. Quarterback Marcus Ante turned in a solid performance with a pair of touchdown passes, including a 64 yard strike to Scott. Defensively, Michael Downen wreaked havoc up front with seven tackles, a tackle for a loss, and a forced fumble. Logan Crawford had eight tackles, a tackle for a loss, and a sack, and Jacob Capra also added a sack. Ryan Huston had 11 tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery, and Derek Haney, who was also on the receiving end of Ante’s second touchdown pass, had a key interception for the Placer. The Hillmen will travel to Modesto to take on top seeded Raiders next with a berth in the section championship game on the line.
