It was a tough

day at the office for the St. Monica Mariners last Saturday night. The Mariners

went up against one of the better teams they will face this season and came out

on the short end of the stick of that encounter, falling to the Carpinteria

Warriors, 38-7 in a non league game.

The loss

gave St. Monica (2-4, 0-1) its fourth defeat of the season. The Mariners hope

to improve on that mark when they take on Bellarmine-Jefferson (0-3) in a Santa

Fe League matchup this Saturday in Burbank.

After

clipping Palm Desert’s Xavier Prep last week, the Mariners found themselves

within striking distance at halftime, only trailing the Warriors 17-0 at

intermission.

The bottom

fell for St. Monica in the second half, particularly in the fourth quarter, when

Carpinteria closed out the game with a 14-0 spurt in the final period.  St. Monica surrendered 325 yards in total

yards for the game, but the bulk of the damage the Warriors did was on the

ground where they rushed for 237 yards.

Ironically, despite

the yardage gained, Carpinteria only managed 13 first downs for the entire

game. St. Monica registered 14 first downs. The Mariners have given up 157

points this season, while managing to score 138 points on the year for

themselves.

Despite the

loss, St. Monica is still ranked 13th in the Southern Section

Division Northeast XIII class.
