The Flashes season came to a screeching halt last Friday night when they lost to the Citrus Valley Black Hawks by a score of 41-14.

The game started out as a defensive struggle as both teams didn't allow a point. That all changed when Black Hawks quarterback Lance Douglas ran the ball for a touchdown. Citrus Valley missed the extra point and went up 6-0. The Flashes answered back on a kickoff return for a touchdown by Hayden Wright to give Fillmore a 7-6 lead with 7:30 left in the 2nd quarter. The Black hawks answered back on their next possession to go back on top 13-7 with 4:10 left in the 2nd quarter. He Flashes got the ball back, however, they were forced to punt the ball away on 4th and 1. Citrus Valley scored another touchdown just before half to take a 20-7 halftime lead. Fillmore kicked the ball off and Citrus Valley went straight to work scoring another touchdown to take a 27-7 lead with 8:23 left in the 3rd quarter. Fillmore tried to get something going to help make it a game, however, they were forced to punt on their next 2 possessions, and went into the 4th quarter down 27-7. The Black hawks scored again with 11:46 left in the game to extend the lead 34-7. Fillmore got the ball back, but they punted it back to Citrus Valley. The Black hawks ran the ball 30 yards down to the 1 yard line and scored a touchdown on the very next play to extend the lead to 41-7 with 7:47 left in the game. The Flashes scored a touchdown on a run by Adam Jimenez. However it was to little to late as the Flashes lost the game 41-14. Good luck to Citrus Valley as they go on to play at Big Bear next Friday night. Fillmore had a good season. They never gave up. GOOD LUCK NEXT YEAR FLASHES!

Flashes stay on top with 48-14 over Santa Clara

When Santa Clara and Fillmore took the field on Friday everyone knew what was at steak. It was just a question of who would come out on top. Could Fillmore force a tie and become Co- champions? Or would Santa Clara be at the top all alone? This game would answer both those questions.

Santa Clara received the ball first to begin the game. On Santa Clara's first offensive play the ball was intercepted by the Flashes. Fillmore took the ball inside their 20 yard line where Hayden Wright scored the games first touchdown from 16 yards out with 8:40 left in the first quarter. Fillmore forced Santa Clara's offense off the field with a 3 and out on Santa Clara's next possession. Fillmore took over possession of the ball and scored their second touchdown of the night with 2:19 left in the 1st quarter. The Saints, down 14-0 looked to get something going as they returned the kickoff down to the 44 yard line. Santa Clara took the ball down to the 10 yard line where the quarterback threw a 10 yard strike into the endzone with 11:52 left in the 2nd quarter. On the Saints next possession, down 14-7 they looked to tie the game up, but were stopped by the Flashes on 4th and 3 from the 13 yard line. On Fillmores next play they handed the ball off to Tyler Esquivel who burst up the middle for a 75 yrd gain. Fillmore got the ball down to the 10 yard line where they handed the ball off to Chino for a 10 yard touchdown to give Fillmore a 21-7 lead with 6:04 left before halftime. Santa Clara appeared to have scored a touchdown, but a penalty negated the touchdown. Santa Clara missed a field goal and went into the locker room down 21-7 at the half.

Fillmore returned the kickoff 70 yards. Later on the drive Tyler Esquivel scored a touchdown, however the PAT was blocked. Fillmore lead 27-7. On the Saints next possession they scored a 1 yard touchdown to cut the lead to 27-14 with 3:41 left in the 3rd quarter. The Saints held Fillmore and forced a 4th and 1. Fillmore handed the ball off to Justin Coert and they got a first down. Fillmore extended their lead to 34-14 thanks to a touchdown run by Hayden Wright with 3:28 left in the 3rd quarter. Santa

Clara could not get anything going as they were forced to punt on their next possession with 1:52 left in the 3rd quarter. The Saints got the ball back thanks to a fumble by the Flashes. Fillmore was up 34-14 with only 1 quarter left to play.

Santa Clara attempted a Field goal and missed it, and the Flashes returned it all the way to the 42 yard line. Santa Clara held Fillmore on 3 plays and forced a punt. On the next play Santa Clara fumbled it back to Fillmore. The Flashes then handed the ball off to Justin Coert as he took it down to the 5 yard line setting up a touchdown run by Carson Mclain to give the Flashes a 41-14 lead with 7:45 left in the game. Santa Clara tried to get another score in, but they fumbled it back to the Flashes. With 4:46 left to play Carson Mclain handed the ball off to Hayden Wright as he ran it 50 yards for a Fillmore Flashes touchdown.

Fillmore went on to beat Santa Clara by a score of 48-14 forcing both teams to be co-champions. Santa Clara won the coin flip to take possession of the #1 seed. Good luck to the Saints as they play Banning high school (Banning, Ca) next week at Santa Clara.

Last Friday Fillmore traveled to Malibu to take on the Sharks. Malibu received the ball first. However, they were un able to do anything with it as they punted the ball away to the Flashes. Fillmore took the ball all the way down field and punched it in for a touchdown to give them an early 7-0 lead. Malibu got the ball again and were forced to punt. The Flashes looked to take a commanding 2 touchdown lead. And they did just that as they ran the ball all the way down field for another score. Down 14-0 Malibu fought hard to try and get themselves back in the game. Once again the Flashes forced a 3 and out. Fillmore marched the ball straight down the field and punched it in to expand their first quarter lead to 20-0. At this point you got the feeling that this game was a typical Fillmore game where Fillmore would get the lead early and stifle the opponent with a physical defense.

The second quarter started with Malibu desperately trying to get back in the game. However, the Flashes wouldn’t let that happen as they forced the Sharks to punt. Fillmore scored another touchdown before the half to take a 27-0 lead.

Malibu did whatever they could to try to soften the Flashes defense to no avail. Fillmore held their ground once again, and once again Fillmore pounded the ball all the way down field to take a 34-0 lead in to the final quarter of play. The Malibu defense was finally able to stop the Flashes. Malibu`s offense couldn’t get anything going as they gave up a safety in the final minutes of play. Fillmore went on to beat the Sharks 36-0. Good luck to the Sharks as they look to get their first win of the year on the final game of the season against Grace Brethren. Fillmore has a big game next Friday as they play the Santa Clara Saints at home. If the Flashes win they win a share of the league title. If they lose then they will come in second place in league. I hope to see you all next Friday. LETS GO FLASHES!

Fillmore scored on a touchdown run by Andrey Sanchez to tie the score at 7. The lancers got the ball back and converted on their second 4th down of the night down to the 45 yard line. The Lancers kicked a field goal, and extended their lead to 10-7.

The Lancers scored another touchdown to go ahead 30-14. Fillmore got the ball back but they were forced to punt it away. The Lancers were driving to score again as they appeared to have the game under control. However, the Flashes had other ideas. Fillmore intercepted a Lancer pass and took it all the way down to the 1 yard line. Quarterback Carson Mclain snuck the ball in for a touchdown to cut the deficit to 30-21. Fillmore went into the 4th quarter down by 9 and in need of a stop. They got what they wanted as Grace Brethren fumbled the ball at the 39 yard line and Fillmore recovered. Carson Mclain scored another touchdown to cut the deficit down to 2 points with 8:19 left in the game. The crowd was electric in hopes that Fillmore could pull out a win. On the Lancers next possession they were forced to punt it away. Fillmore got the ball on the 30 yard line in need of a score. Fillmore running back Chino burst up the middle for a 30 yard gain down to the Lancers 40 yard line with 3 minutes left. Chino struck again, this time on a 40 yard touchdown run that would give Fillmore the lead for good. Fillmore went for 2 and got it. Grace Brethren took over down 36-30 with 2:30 left in the game and in need of a touchdown to win. They went for it on 4th down again, but this time Fillmore stopped them. Fillmore then scored a touchdown for insurance to win the game 42-30. Great game to both teams. Good luck to the Lancers on the rest of their season as they play next Friday at Santa Clara (Oxnard). Fillmore plays away at Malibu next week in need of a win to keep their hopes of a league championship alive. GOOD LUCK FLASHES!
