Senior wide receiver Nic Skala gained good yardage (153 yards on 10 pass receptions), but it wasn’t quite enough as the La Jolla Vikings football team suffered a 41-24 defeat at the hands of the Monte Vista Monarchs in a CIF Div. IV semifinal playoff game played at Monte Vista High School.

Skala’s longest reception on the evening went for 41 yards for La Jolla.

Meanwhile, running backs Eric Tims and Reid Martin exhibited good footwork for the Vikings.

Tims (14 carries for 93 yards and two touchdowns) and Martin (20 carries for 71 yards) combined for 164 yards on 34 carries to lead the attack.

With the season-ending loss, La Jolla finished with an overall record of 5-7.

In other football action, the Monarchs defeated the University City Centurions by a final score of 41-2 in a CIF Div. IV first-round playoff game also played at Monte Vista.

With the loss, UC closed out with an overall record of 4-7.                   

This season, Dominic Lewis, Kyle LeBlanc, Drake Aguon, Quinn Skillin and Dareion Bell all proved to be dynamic threats on offense for the Centurions.

UC’s Lewis ran the ball for a robust 700-plus yards, while throwing for more than 400 yards.

LeBlanc also logged a lot of yardage for the Centurions, with more than 400 on the ground and another 200-plus through the air.

Entering the 400-plus passing yardage club along with Lewis for UC was Aguon, a sophomore.

Bell and Skillan joined LeBlanc in amassing more than 200 receiving yards for the Centurions.
