San Juan Hills football earns a 6-0 record with homecoming night win against Dos Pueblos high school.

Six and oh, baby!

Friday's 27-14 win over Dos Pueblos High School of Goleta – those guys sure drove a long way – for San Juan Hills' homecoming game made school history as the football team set a new school record for most consecutive wins.

The Stallions set the pace of the game with a touchdown on their first possession.

The Chargers soon answered with a touchdown of their own.

The defense of San Juan Hills made the big plays of the second quarter. Junior Curren Lapes came up with a big interception. The Stallions capitalized as wide receiver Junior Elias Irby put up six points just before the end of the first half. 

San Juan Hills students and dance teams put on an elaborate Asian-themed halftime show during which the homecoming king and queen were announced. The students called it sensei-tional. It's even got an educational theme.

The teams traded touchdowns in the third quarter. Another key interception came when Junior Brennan Walsh intercepted the ball on a Chargers third and goal.

The Stallions sealed the win on a touchdown reception from quarterback Jason Gibson to #22 Corey White. 

Gibson's also a junior. See a trend here? Stallions look good as they head into league action for the first time next week, when they'll face Laguna Hills Friday at home. 

And they're already looking good for next year, too.

What a perfect Homecoming for this young school! The new stadium was packed the crowd was enthusiastic, the players were prepared and pumped. We enjoyed the half time show, dancing fireworks and all. The patriotic carrying of or flag by the team onto the field is moving. Spend a Friday night at Badlands stadium and you'll see the best Friday night football tradition. Thank you to all who make it happen. Go Stallions!
