The Corcoran High School varsity football season came to an end Friday night after a loss in a playoff matchup against, East Sequoia League rival, Woodlake. CHS lost to Woodlake 7-46.
On offense Corcoran’s lone touchdown came from quarterback Herman Luna who connected with Julian Escalante on a 26-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. Unfortunately, Woodlake’s defense held CHS scoreless the rest of the game. In the air, Luna threw for 201 yards, on 37 attempts, and connected with Yvan Hernandez and Jayden Mustain multiple times throughout the night. Hernandez had three catches for 84-yards, and Mustain had eight catches for 36-yards.
On defense, Yvan Hernandez had seven tackles. Chris Grigsby and Alvie Valdez each had an interception. Marshall Gilbert recovered a fumble that was forced by Marc Navarro, who also led the team with nine tackles. Jakob Guzman recorded a crucial sack in the game.
“Not the way we wanted the season to end, but I am so proud of the way these young men battled all year. This was the first time the Panthers have made a playoff appearance in four years, so we were glad to be back, but unfortunately fell short of our goals,” said Coach Grant Kapigian. “We are looking to get back to the playoffs next year, and even contend for a championship.”
