Santa Clarita Christian's Jacob Nogle (5) runs the ball in the first quarter of the game against Frazier Mountain on Saturday at Canyon High School. SCCS won the game 30-22.

Santa Clarita Christian took a punch to the jaw in the opening quarter against Frazier Mountain.

But rather than folding, the Cardinals responded through the remainder of the game and edged out a 30-22 victory over the Falcons Saturday at Harry Welch Stadium.

“Our guys never quit,” said SCCS head coach Garrick Moss. “We got down early and didn’t quit. We got down in the six-minute mark of the fourth quarter and they scored, it could have demoralized us. But our guys knew all game we were moving the ball. We knew we could come back. For them to fight back, drive and score and put the pressure on them, that was huge.”

Behind its double-wing running formation, Frazier Mountain controlled a 14-0 lead after the opening quarter.

Following a 9-yard rushing touchdown by Matt Regan on its opening drive, the Falcons recovered an onside kick, which gave them great starting field position at the SCCS 39-yard line.

The recovery led to a 4-yard rushing touchdown by Weston Wells, and prompted a two touchdown lead before the SCCS offense had a possession.

But the Cardinals (4-3 overall, 1-0 San Joaquin League) would turn up the intensity from that point.

Running back Derek Lewis put SCCS on the board by way of a 1-yard rushing touchdown with 49 seconds to play in the first half.

After the touchdown, Jonathan Saavedra successfully converted a quarterback keeper for the two-point conversion, which cut the deficit to 14-8.

Lewis added his second touchdown of the game on the Cardinals’ opening possession of the second half.

He also carried in the two-point conversion, which gave SCCS a 16-14 lead with 9:37 to play in third quarter.

Frazier Mountain (4-3) regained the lead with 8:45 to play in the fourth as running back Riley Daniels took a pitch 5-yard for a touchdown.

The Falcons converted the two-point conversion and led 22-16.

But less than two minutes later, SCCS jumped back in front on a Kamron Carrroll 5-yard rushing score.

Carroll set up the touchdown with a 72-yard run down the left sideline to put the Cardinals in scoring position.

He had 145 yards on 16 carries.

With the extra point, SCCS led 23-22.

Carroll set the final score with his second 5-yard rushing touchdown with 3:36 to play in the game.

Lewis had 43 yards rushing on nine attempts, and extended his streak of at least one rushing touchdown in each of his last six games.

Daniels finished with 125 yards on 17 carries, while Regan had 74 on 18 attempts.

Daniel Andrade added 81 yards on 10 rushes for Frazier Mountain.
