Cabrillo 31, Templeton 28

– Templeton (4-1) hosted Cabrillo (1-4) in a tough battle Friday night that ended with the Eagles suffering a 31-28 loss to the Conquistadores.

From the opening ceremonies to the final moments of the game, the night was filled with gestures of support for Isaac Lindsey, the Templeton player injured in the Eagles’ games against SLO last week. With the Templeton High School marching band playing, the cheerleaders ran out followed by Isaac’s older brother and teammate, Louis Lindsey, carrying a 32 flag representing his jersey number, and Isaac’s best friend and teammate, Nate Avery, with an Eagles flag as the two led their team onto the field.

Zack Hewitson brought in a touchdown for Templeton in the second quarter, with Cabrillo adding two touchdowns to tie up the score 21-21 going into halftime.
