When a football team is missing six starters for a game, it’s difficult to win. That proved to be the case Friday night when the Islander Football Team traveled to face the San Diego Cavers. San Diego scored the first 28 points and won by the score of 41-13.

The first Islander score came in the second quarter, via an 80-yard kickoff return by Ramon Inchaurrandieta, followed by the extra point conversion by Nadia Quijano. In the third quarter, Ash Bibbes scored on a 28-yard pass play from quarterback Brady Roulier. The kick failed and that’s the scoring summary for Coronado. The Cavers scored in all four quarters of the contest.

Running back and inside linebacker Devin Schulte continued his fine play. He was the Islander leading rusher with 32 yards gained six carries. He was also the leading tackler on defense with six tackles, an assisted tackle, a quarterback sack and two tackles for loss. Inchaurrandieta had four tackles and recovered a fumble; Jaden Ferrar, Tyler Buckley, Jonathan Contreras, John Rawlins and Edward Hayes all had three tackles in the contest.

Roulier had a nice night completing 11 of 22 passes for 149 yards. Buckley had four pass receptions for 59 yards, Bibbes caught two passes for 62 yards, and Kanon Billings had two pass receptions for 23 yards.

Islander Head Coach Kurt Hines summarized the game by saying, “We gave the ball up in our red zone twice on punts. One was a snap over the punter’s head. We didn’t execute and too many times we had veteran players not executing to their full potential. Jacob McKanry hurt his leg and was out at least for this week’s game. The positives are we have another game Friday and we have a ton of film footage that we can use to work and improve upon.”

Next week the Islanders (5-4) travel to Hoover (0-9) for their final regular season game. Hines added, “Hoover is plenty big. We played them while I was coaching at Christian. They have size and some skilled players who can move fast. We have eight of their games that I have watched so far and they made some big plays. They have potential. There is no doubt Friday night that they are going to pull out all the stops. We need to take care of business and win Friday night.”

Coronado is in Division IV, where 12 of the 17 teams qualify for the post-season. Coronado is currently ranked No. 9. The Top 12 teams in order include Santana, Serra, Montgomery, La Jolla Country Day, Patrick Henry, Mt. Miguel, Orange Glen, Escondido, Coronado, Tri-City Christian, Classical Academy and Mar Vista.
