Christian Brothers’ Falcons dominated the Friday night game, eliminating any chance at a Panther victory in the Sac Joaquin Division. 

     The Benicia Panthers were eliminated from the Sac Joaquin Division 3 playoffs by the Christian Brothers Falcons on friday night by an impressive score of 59-0.

     As the score indicates, the game was never close, and to prove this, Christian Brothers scored on their first play from scrimmage, with senior Gunnor Faulk connecting on a 62 yard touchdown to make the score 6-0, and the Falcons got a two point conversion to make the score 8-0. Benicia then punted back to the Falcons. After a couple of possessions that resulted in no scoring for either team, Christian Brothers scored again with about a minute left in the first quarter, this time a rushing touchdown by Jacob Tucker and had another two point conversion to make the score 16-0.

     The Falcons scored another touchdown before the end of the quarter to make the score 24-0. Faulk continued to tear it up, as Christian Brothers would push the lead to 46-0 at halftime. Faulk would finish with only 7 completions on 10 attempts, but threw for 269 yards and 5 touchdowns on those 10 attempts for an average of 38 yards per completion, and for a Quarterback rating of 152.08, nearly perfect on the NFL scale.

     The second half was played with a running clock, and Christian Brothers added another two touchdowns to make the final score 59-0. Benicia was the only school across all seven Sac Joaquin Sections to not score a single point in their playoff game. Benicia’s season is over, and Christian Brothers advances to the second round to play Rio Linda.
