Great tough runs from backs Dolton Corpus, Paul Wessels, Jordan Sandoval and Johnny Garica were acknowledged by the coaches.
“Defensively we were in the right place at the right time but could not seem to make the plays we needed,” said MMS coach Ricardo Maldonado.
“This was one of our toughest opponents of the year and our Trojans did an awesome job all night long.”
