San Marcos Falls Short at Morro Bay, 34-29

Ashkan Allen scored on a two-point conversion to give San Marcos the lead with 3:48 left in the game, but Morro Bay responded with a long touchdown run by Brandon McGinley and beat the Royals, 34-29, in a back-and-forth football game Friday night in Morro Bay.

Allen had a two touchdown runs and Mason Zimmerman caught a pair of scoring passes for the Royals, who came from behind three times in the game.

McGinley rushed for 195 yards to lead the Pirates, who are 2-0 after going 0-10 last season.

San Marcos (0-2) returns home next Friday to face Lompoc.

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!
