TUSTIN – During the Pink Ribbon Game on Sept. 30th, Varsity Football charged against Westminster High School. Although Beckman lost 20-41, the game succeeded in bringing awareness to the battle against breast cancer.

 

The game began with both teams fighting hard for the lead. Offense hit the field strongly, with junior quarterback Nick Hill making a 54-yard pass to junior receiver Dylan Somoza. “Overall, [Beckman’s] offense played very well, [but] our defense needs to be more consistent,” said senior outside linebacker Justin Cheng.

 

Not long after their shaky start, defense picked up the pace. Senior starting left guard Sebastian Liu stated, “As the game progressed, [Beckman’s defense] started [to] move [more] as a unit.” Not only did defense improve but so did offense. “We were able to do a lot of things that we haven’t been able to do all season,” said Liu. Liu  and junior defensive tackle guard Cayden Seeber managed to drive a Westminster player 10 yards until the player fell, and Hill beat a personal record after dealing a 300-yard pass. Junior wide receiver and cornerback Dylan Somoza caught a pass thrown by another Patriot and made Westminster’s defenders fall in the game.

 

It can be agreed by many that the team fought hard against Westminster. “I think we played well for a time, but clearly not long enough. We had some injuries take their toll and adversely affect our performance,” said Head Varsity Football Coach Marcello Giuliano. So far, the team had faced three tough opponents this season, and some of the team’s starters were injured during the games. However, their hardships failed to deter them, and the team played to the best of their ability.

 

Despite the team’s loss, the game was an exciting one that sent a message to players and spectators alike. “I love the Pink Ribbon Game,” stated sophomore Colleen Quigley, a member of Beckman’s Varsity Cheer Team. “It’s a very good way to promote awareness for something that affects so many women.”

 

Undeterred by this loss, the team will play against Irvine High School on Oct. 13 and hope to defend the Fence Post trophy.
