Cats take down the Titans


Bearcat Varsity football wins against Nipomo Titans, 34-12

As Bearcats young and old gathered in the stands at War memorial stadium, Bearcat football succeeded in taking down the Nipomo Titans, 34-12, on homecoming, Oct. 21, 2022. This win maintained PRHS’ third place spot in mountain league, still behind the Mission Royals and St. Joseph Knights. The Bearcats overall average is 6-3, and a league score of 4-2, with their losses only to the two previous teams mentioned. 

The game’s kick off started with the Bearcats coming out strong pushing against the Titans offense. As the quarter continued onward sophomore Connor Bowman ,11, scored the very first touchdown with the PAT good, 7-0. The clock continued to count down when running back Leo Kemp, 12, scored yet another touchdown for the offense, taking the score to 14 for PRHS and a goose egg for the Titans. But Paso was not yet down with the first quarter, as the seconds went by the Cats’ Trevor Lambeth, 12, scored, with the PAT good bringing the score at the end of the first quarter to 21-0.

Momentum continued for the Cats as the second quarter began. However, the Titans breached the Bearcat defense, scoring a touchdown with the extra point being blocked. The Cats did not let up though with Bowman scoring again, bringing the score to 27-6. 

As the second quarter came to a close, the push back towards the Bearcats defense became too much, with the Titans scoring yet again with no PAT point, 27-12.

For halftime, Bearcats united on the field with beginning, intermediate, advanced dance, color guard, and cheer to celebrate under the bright lights of Viva Las Bearcats, the 2022 homecoming theme, as the varsity football team prepared to widen the gap against the Titans. 

During the third quarter, with under a minute to go, senior quarterback Tyler Luna completed a 25 yard pass to Kemp for another Bearcat touchdown with kicker Jordan Orcutt’s PAT point being good, 34-12.

The Bearcats fought to keep both the Nipomo offense and defense far away from either end zone, with no scoring happening for either team in the fourth quarter. The Bearcats now have a two week win streak that they hope to continue this last week of league games against the Arroyo Grande Eagles, Oct. 28, 2022. This game will be the Bearcats’ senior night.
