Pacific Grove football

Rather than use the extra week to prepare for its opponent, Pacific Grove coach Chris Morgan felt the need to redefine logic.
While the bye week enabled the Breakers to heel up some nagging injuries, Morgan also went back to the basics of football, calling the week off a mini-camp.
 It made sense.
 In Morgan's mind, several of the younger faces were not up to speed. Ready or not, their names were being called to contribute. That wasn't going to change.
 No doubt, it didn't hurt having Noah Cryns back in the lineup, as he accounted for six touchdowns in a 42-10 win over Marina.
 Yet, it was the play around him by some of those younger faces that enabled Cryns to compile nearly 300 yards in offense.
 Perhaps overshadowed by the offensive production was the effort of a defense that had been torched for 123 points in three games.
 Pride took over as Pacific Grove held Marina to a second half touchdown after building a 35-point cushion.
 Sure, it's just one game. But it was a confidence builder. Never sleep on a program coming off two straight league titles.
