Prep Roundup: Tigers, Pirates picked for football all-star game

Two more local high schools’ initial selections for the upcoming FCA Central Coast All-Star Football Classic were announced Tuesday.

From San Luis Obispo, the all-stars are linebacker Nick Butier, fullback Vance Cramer and receiver Mason Orradre.

Representing Morro Bay are quarterback and safety Sam Crizer, defensive lineman Noah Galicia, receiver Jesse Landry and running back Darek Mendoza.

The game, which will pit a San Luis Obispo County squad of seniors against their northern Santa Barbara County counterparts, will be held June 4 at Pioneer Valley High. All proceeds from the game will go to benefit PAC 7 and Los Padres League schools.

All of the players announced Tuesday were all-league honorees, and Crizer was an all-state selection among medium-sized schools by both Cal-Hi Sports and MaxPreps.

Selections from Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Nipomo, Paso Robles and Templeton are planned to be announced in upcoming weeks.


Santa Ynez 11, Nipomo 7

Despite a five-goal performance from Becky Emrick, the Titans (5-13, 2-3 Los Padres League) couldn’t stifle the second-seeded Pirates in the league championships.

With the loss, Nipomo will go on to play Morro Bay for third place. If Nipomo wins, it will earn a spot in the divisional playoffs.

Sara Clark had the other two goals for Nipomo, and freshman Samantha Baker made seven saves in goal.

Morro Bay 11, Santa Maria 3; Cabrillo 13, Morro Bay 7

In the first game, the Pirates were up only 3-2 at the half, but Megan Long scored five goals in the third quarter and powered Morro Bay past Santa Maria.

Kerri Novick had 12 saves in goal.

Later, after spotting Cabrillo an 8-1 lead after the first quarter, the Pirates rallied but could never close the gap.

Led by Long’s three goals, Morro Bay received four other goals from four different players, and Novick had 11 saves.

San Luis Obispo 10, Righetti 9

The Tigers (15-8, 9-2 PAC 7) came back from a 6-3 halftime deficit in their win over the Warriors.

In what proved to be a crucial third quarter, San Luis Obispo outscored Righetti 4-1, making it a 7-7 tie going into the fourth.

“We were able to stop their scoring drives,” Tigers coach Kristin Poochigian said.
