The game against Yorba on Monday, December 10 was a great game for McPherson. It wasn’t the closest game but, this was a great game too learn from. The end score was 39-12. Although, the game did start off pretty close. McPherson got the ball first and scored. It was a QB run by Owen Smith and they went up 6-0. Next possession, Yorba also had a nice run and then ended up scoring and tying the game 6-6. It took McPherson a second to figure out the defense, but they eventually did. They capitalized on a coverage mistake and McPherson threw a touchdown pass to Sam Astor. They also converted on the extra point to Carson Ferry.
