The Falcons defeated league rival Canyon Crest Academy 9-8 on Senior Night. With the score tied at 8 and one minute remaining in the game, Jacob Burgess (10) scored the game winning goal with 19 seconds left off a cross pass by Noah Inada (10). TPHS started slowly, trailing 3-1 in the first quarter. The second quarter was more of the same as the Falcons faced a 4-2 deficit at halftime. Torrey's halfcourt offense was stymied and the defense was questionable. However, in the third period, TPHS's counterattack created great scoring opportunities and the Falcons capitalized, quickly tying the game at 4. TP traded goals with the Ravens the rest of the way through, the intensity in the crowd multiplying as the game became a back and forth seesaw affair. But the Falcons pulled through with one last counter in the final minute, the knockout punch delivered Jacob Burgess launched a low skip from 10 meters out for the win with the shot clock expiring and 19 seconds left on the game clock. The Falcons made one final stop on the Ravens' possession and held out for an exhilarating 9-8 victory on Senior Night. Congratulations to everyone!
