Boys Varsity Football · Saints Football Team Rolls Through Fountain Valley in 1st Round of CIF


Friday night was an outstanding time to be a Saint as the Santa Ana football team delivered an impressive performance in their CIF 1st Round victory over Fountain Valley, winning 48-26.

The Saints defense locked down the Barons offense while quarterback Julian Gomez led the offense, who scored almost at will throughout the first half. It’s hard to imagine, but Patrick McMorris outdid his week 10 performance of 254 yards rushing by gaining 305 yards against the Barons.

Good luck Saints as you move on to the quarterfinals against Temecula Valley HS.
