Falcons shut out Mira Mesa High
The Scripps Ranch High School (SRHS) varsity football team shut out Mira Mesa High School 21-0 in the first game of a very unusual season which began March 12 on the Scripps Ranch High campus.
Numerous fans, presumably being mostly parents of the players, lined up along the fence on the sidewalk along Scripps Ranch Boulevard above the field to watch the action since the San Diego Unified School District prohibited spectators. Inside the stadium, the game was played with empty stands.
Meanwhile, sleet pelted the players for a short time as they battled during what the official SRHS sports web page labeled as a scrimmage. Neither team wore their team’s formal stickers on their helmets for this contest. Still, Falcons players celebrated as they hoisted the traditional Battle of the 15 trophy following the SRHS victory.
