The Pacifica Islanders claimed victory of the
California Bowl with a 26-0 win against the very
tough North County Cobras from San Diego last
Saturday in a game played at Terra Nova.
The Islanders' defense made it extremely hard
for the Cobras to move the ball; they had great
pressure all night forcing the quarterback out
of the pocket and making some throws that he
wishes he didn't.
Islander defensive backs were in the right
places to make a play on the ball, and on
offense they were able to gain a rhythm and move
the ball efficiently.
Jarmar Julien continued his hard running, making
unbelievable runs, and just when it looked like
he was going down he dragged defenders for
several more yards.
Julien finished with a super performance with
115 rushing yards. Jason Piccolotti once again
had an amazing game hooking up with his familiar
wide receivers. He hit Rob Piccolotti for one
On one amazing play veteran wide receiver Andre
Kelley had great awareness and didn't give up
when a pass was deflected. The ball appeared to
be an incomplete pass; however, he snatched the
ball out of the air and ran for an 80-yard
Piccolotti connected 122 of his 254 yards with
wide receiver Nick Iano on four big pass plays.
The Islanders now travel to Las Vegas on
Saturday, where they will take on the undefeated
Portland Monarchs in the Sunset Bowl. The
Monarchs are a top team in the country and the
game looks to be a great fun filled event.
