Mission Prep football team continues to roll

Mission Prep's football team dominated on both sides of the ball Friday in a 31-6 home win over Grace Brethren.

The Royals (6-1) outgained the Lancers by more than 200 yards.

Grace Brethren did not eclipse 100 yards of total offense until its only scoring drive when it had a 25-yard touchdown pass with 22 seconds to go in the fourth quarter.

Tyler Baty starred for the Royals by passing for 132 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed for 46 yards.

While Mission Prep scored mostly through the air, it gained most of its yards on the ground with 235 rushing yards as a team. Michael Cardwell rushed for 160 of those yards and a 6-yard fourth-quarter touchdown.

A 26-yard Tanner Nelson field goal with 3:43 to go in the fourth extended the lead to 31-0. Joey Hall had a game-high 52 receiving yards and had a 21-yard touchdown catch from Baty in the beginning of the third quarter.

“Our offensive and defensive lines were exceptional,” Mission Prep coach Chad Henry said. “It sends a statement to our guys what happens when we play together and sets a tempo for our big match-up against Nipomo next week.”
