Stallions Nail a Come-From-Behind Win over Aliso Niguel

It was all Wolverines the first half. It was all San Juan Hills the second.

A come-from-behind win Friday against Aliso Niguel has put the San Juan Hills High Stallions back in the hunt for a play-off berth.

It was an incredible last home game and senior night for the Stallions, who were down 14-28 at the half. But the defense kept the Wolverines scoreless in the second half, allowing the offense to do their thing.

Final score, 35-28.

This is the first Sea View League win for the Stallions, who improve to 7-1 on the season. Aliso Niguel moves to a 5-4 record, 0-3 in the league.

Stallions quarterback Jacob Gibson threw for 197 yards for three touchdowns and another and one rushing, according to OC Varsity.  Senior captain Scott Hoover also had a prolific game, with two touchdown receptions, one two-point conversion and an interception on defense.

San Juan Hills Coach Aaron Flowers told the Capistrano Dispatch:

(Hoover) had a rough week. He gave up a touchdown last week and tonight gave one up,” San Juan Hills head coach Aaron Flowers said. “For him to get a pick and the winning touchdown…it just shows he’s a great kid and a great player. 

The school's Facebook page is overflowing with praise:

"Thanks guys for making the last [home] game for all us seniors at sjhhs memorable!!!

"Outstanding job tonight football, way to make your school proud!"

"that was so much fun. couldnt have asked for a better senior night!"
