Vikings who are new to the NCFL, found out early that the Islanders
were in town for business.
received the ball to start the game and had just crossed into
Islander territory when Pacifica’s defense showed them how the
evening would go. They would be stopped in their tracks and have to
punt. The Islanders first possession resulted in a Jason Harrison
touchdown. Not to disappoint after last week’s player of the week
performance, Harrison again consistently broke tackles and amassed
201 yards rushing on 10 carries and 2 touchdowns, thus making him
this year’s first back to back Islander of the week recipient.
the biggest stories of the game was the Islanders defense up front.
Pacifica’s defense AKA “The Blackout D” was in the Vikings QB Isaac
Dawid’s face all evening, keeping him frustrated most of the game.
The Islanders ended the night with a team record 12 sacks.
Islander’s defensive end Anthony Edwards led the charge with 4.5
tackles and another 4.5 sacks earning him player of the game honors
for week 2. The Hargraves brothers, Jermaine and Ronald both
intercepted Dawid on Saturday with Jermaine returning his gift to
the endzone for a 43 yard touchdown.
QB Jimmy Collins threw 2 touchdowns in the win, one for 45 yards to
Cecil Elekewachi and another to Calvin Edwards for 10 yards. The
final score was 42-6 with 5 different Islanders scoring touchdowns
(Harrison – 2, Lindsey, Elekewachi, Edwards and Hargraves) . Donyell
Crain also caught a 2 point conversion. The Vikings only score was a
late 4th quarter touchdown in which the extra point was missed.
Islander’s players and staff were excited about the dominating win.
Head coach Jason Piccolotti said “Although we will celebrate this
win tonight, it is still early in the season and we need to stay
focused on our next opponent, the Stockton Trojans. They have always
been a playoff team and we will prepare for them like we do all
games, just like it were a championship.”
