Mission faced a much larger in size Marshall-San Francisco team on Saturday, September 14. They came away with a non-league win, 53-12 ending a 10-game losing streak. A new coaching staff and an impressive offense scheme based on quick ball movement made the difference. Mission scored 14 points in the second quarter and 20 in the third with a great performance by running back Ismail Shafi, who darted for 215 yards on 17 carries and two touchdowns. He racked up 124 yards by the end of the second quarter.
The Warriors even recovered an onside kick which that led to a five-play, 49-yard drive and a 15-yard touchdown run for Shafi. The air, attack for mission was also impressive as Tamim Sarwary - 12 for 19 - passed for 154 yards with three touchdowns His best receiver of the night was Idris Gettani, who caught four passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns.
Mission, with its new offense, could be the dark horse in the Mission Valley Athletic League this year!
