Pacifica’s High-Octane Offense Too Much For Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara High couldn't contain Pacifica's big-play offense and suffered a 47-27 defeat in a non-league football game on Friday in Oxnard.

The Tritons scored on their first possession and never looked back in handing the Dons their fourth loss of the season. They would score 20 points in the first quarter.

Quarterback Raul Sandoval hit wide receiver on a 28-yard touchdown pass for a 7-0 lead.

Pacifica's Miles Williams intercepted a pass and gave it good field position at the Santa Barbara 36. On firs don, running back Thomas Duckett sprinted up the field for the score and a 14-0 lead.

The Dons struggled to bring down Duckett. He ran for 223 yards on 16 carries.

Pacifica recovered the ensuing kickoff and made it 17-0 on a 34-yard field goal from Isaac Gomez.

Down 27-0, Ruben Velez got Santa Barbara on the scoreboard with a 4-yard run in the second quarter. The Jeremiah Nicholson bolted for a 74-yard run to make it 27-13.

The Tritons continued to pick up yards on the ground and scored another touchdown to go up 34-13. They led 44-13 before Jeremiah Phillips caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Franky Gamberdella. Nicholson scored his second touchdown on a pass from Gamberdella and Natani Drati caught a pass from the 2-point conversion.

Santa Barbara returns to Peabody Stadium next Friday for the Big Game against San Marcos.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
