GAME OF THE WEEK: PATRIOTS WIN UGLY BATTLE OVER BRAVES

(EL CAJON) October 9 - Minutes after Christian's 36-22 win at El Cajon Valley Friday night, the Patriots' coaching staff brought up the topic of winning ugly in the team's post-game meeting on the field. The gist of the discussion was that it did not matter that the team won by playing less than stellar football. What was important was that they found a way to win.

 

Ugly was the first word that came to mind after watching the Patriots' first three possessions of the game, which all resulted in fumbles lost to the Braves. Even more deflating for Christian was that ECV scored 14 points from these turnovers.
