Tonight, the Panthers hosted Mt SAC for their annual matchup against the college's western rivals. This season, the teams faced off during the preconference season. The Mounties came into the game ranked 7th in the state with a 2-0 season record, including a huge win over Long Beach last week. The Panthers pulled off a win last week at Victor Valley that placed the team #10 in last week's southern region poll. Historically, Chaffey has struggled against SAC with many heartbreaks along the way. Tonight, that all changed!
The Panther offense lead by quarterback Caleb Arreola scored twice for Chaffey including off a 73-yard pass. Coupled with a defense that would not let up, the Panthers kept the Mounties scoreless through four quarters to claim the HUGE victory for Chaffey. Bryan Wilcots and Aaron Lewis lead the defensive line accounting for 20 combined tackles.
The men will hit the practice field hard this week in preparation for Pasadena on Saturday. The Lancers are 2-1 also and will be coming off a devastating 50-21 loss at Saddleback tonight.
