FOOTBALL: Ewing's Phenomenal Rushing Helps Cap Get 1st Win

The running back's long runs throughout the night—part of 44 rushes for 494 yards—made a key difference in the game.

Capuchino High's football team notched its first win of the season Friday with a 35-28 victory over Gunn High School (Palo Alto).

According to a coach, senior running back Justin Ewing made the key difference in the game at Gunn High's stadium, with an incredible 44 rushes for 494 yards and three touchdowns.

Cap's sports website reported:

The Mustangs sprinted out to a 14-0 lead, only to watch the lead evaporate in two successive Gunn drives. What could have been demoralizing turned into a motivating factor. The team hung tough and the teams were tied at halftime 21-21.  

Behind a line that was working hard, Ewing ripped off several long runs to keep the momentum on the mustangs side. A huge goal line stand with 2:30 left in the game helped sealed the victory.

Cap goes into its next game Friday against rival Burlingame High with a 1-2 record in the PAL Lake division.

The game will be at 3:15 p.m. at Cap.

That's a little tough when you don't have lights. The lights are usually only brought in for one game a year. Only one Friday night game at CAP this season. October 26th at 7:00pm against San Mateo.

Then let's get lights. We need to have more places and activities for kids at night. Instead of roaming the streets and getting themselves into trouble. Friday night football games provide supervised entertainment.

Congrats Justin and the Cap football team. Great blocking offense line. See you in the NFL Justin.
