It is said that defense wins championships. If that holds true the Eagles of Arroyo Grande are surely in the drivers seat as the have only given up 3 points in their two post season games.

Arroyo Grande High School prior to Friday night had not beaten Lompoc since 2010 including a week one loss. 

That is a statement which can no longer be made as they ran, passed and played nasty defense on way to a 28-3 throttling of Lompoc High School. 

The Eagles did fall behind 3-0 on the Braves opening drive. Lompoc score was set up by a 32 yard pass which set up the field goal to take the lead.

AG's Jordan Harrigan a 6'0 and 200lb running back rambled for a 50 yard bust up the middle with a cut back for a score and the kick was good. The score moves to 7-3 Arroyo Grande midway through the second quarter. Lompoc failed to drive and was forced to punt.

A second and 8 pass interference from the 16 by Lompoc and a unsportsmanlike call led to a Joey De La Rosa running play for the touchdown. 14-3 with 2:20 to play in the half.

Lompoc answered with a 45 yard pass play beating the AG secondary to the 26 yardline on their next possession. AG answered with their biggest play of the half which was a sack near midfield with 14 seconds going into the half. Lompoc was forced to punt. The scoreboard read 14-3 at the half. 

The a Eagles drive on the opening drive to a 4th and 4 from Lompoc 30. May lofted the ball that resulted in Lompoc batting the ball down. AG's Alex Cecchi defensive back picked off an errant Lompoc pass with under 7 min to play in the third. AG's Griffin Lintner bounced outside for the score moving the scoarboard to 21-3. 

Cecchi who was big on defense also dotted the "i" in win with a fourth quarter scamper moving the score to 28-3. The Lompoc fans began the adventure home as the filed out of the stands.
