Game 2: Santa Margarita High School vs. Trabuco Hills – Inspired Performance of the Game
Friday night and we’re here at Mission Viejo High School who is hosting the Santa Margarita Eagles versus the Trabuco Hills Mustangs (who are located in Mission Viejo). I’ve never seen so many people at a high school football game – or such a devoted crowd! There are two full tailgate parties going on in the parking lot and the crowds are simply draped in their spirit-wear.
This is predicted to be one of the most heated matchups – Santa Margarita’s football squad is currently ranked #2 in the nation, and Trabuco is looking to make a name for themselves. Only time will tell which Inspired Performance of the Game the producers in the COX3 Game of the Week truck will choose; there’s certain to be plenty to choose from.
35 to zero going in to the half in favor of the Eagles. No Inspired Performance has been elected yet. It’s still anybody’s ball game. I’m going to have a walk around to see more of this unbelievable crowd – it feels like a college bowl game in here.
You’ve got to give both teams credit for having such passionate football fans – I not only see Trabuco Hills families and people from Rancho Santa Margarita, there are more than a few Nebraska Huskers fans in the Santa Margarita bleachers; sounds like the recruiters are scouting!
This game closed out with a clean sweep – final score 55 to zero for the Eagles. The Inspired Performance of the Game goes to Johnny Stanton, the Eagles’ quarterback, for a stellar run into the endzone. Congratulations for a great game; check out the Inspired Performance video clip on the Infiniti of Mission Viejo website and don’t forget to vote now!Follow @InfinitiMV
