FOOTBALL: Turnovers Lead to Loss Against Burlingame

While the team kept Burlingame High on their toes on both offense and defense throughout the game, Cap had too many turnovers and couldn't recover late in the game.

Capuchino High's football team lost its home game against Burlingame High on Friday 44-35.

But Cap's offense and defense kept Burlingame on their toes throughout the game, and made a big push in the second half after trailing 27-14 at halftime, according to media reports.

Senior running back Justin Ewing had another explosive game, rushing for 37 times for 298 yards and five touchdowns, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Last week, Ewing rushed for a record-setting 44 rushes for 494 yards and three touchdowns in Cap's win against Gunn High (Palo Alto).

Cap's football page summed up the rest of the game:

Ultimately two lost fumbles, two interceptions and a blocked punt for a touchdown proved too much to overcome, a daunting task for a professional team, let alone a talented high school team. The Mustangs can hold their heads high with the knowledge that they never quit and, believe me, the team from Burlingame will not forget their encounter with this team.

Cap's record is now 1-3. The next game is at 7 p.m. Friday vs. Aragon High in San Mateo.
