Whipple averaged 5.0 yards per carry, and scored 31 touch- downs as he led Saddleback to its first two winning seasons and first two playoff appearances.

Whipple was one of the first players from Tustin High to head south to play at Saddleback.

A.J. Esperanza, (5) quarterback for El Modena High School, couldn’t escape the sack of Christian Araiza from Canyon High. El Modena won the game, 21-20.

It wasn’t dancing with the stars, it was El Modena’s Raymond Sanchez (9) defending on a pass intended for Foothill’s David Lopez (6) that went wide. Foothill won the homecoming game, 14-7.

El Modena holds on for a North Hills win

Canyon High School let a 20-7 halftime lead slip away, as El Modena scored 14 points in the second half to pull out a 21-20 win, putting the Vanguards on top of the North Hills race with one game remaining in the regular season against El Dorado High School. The game will be held at

Bradford Stadium at 7 p.m. El Modena pulled within seven

points as quarterback A.J. Es- peranza (149 yds) found Grant Gramm at the back of the end zone. Gramm was well covered, but made a leaping catch over the defenders for the touchdown with 3:21 remaining in the third quarter.

El Modena’s defense dug in, stopping two Villa Park drives. El Modena took possession on the Villa Park 32, got a first down from Kenneth Lamb, and Dillon Keefe scored from one yard out to take the lead after Jordy Cruz’s extra point. Lamb and Keefe combined for 112 yards rushing.

Ray Sanchez, (9) from El Modena put the stop to Canyon’s Connor Dunn (with ball). El Modena edged Canyon, 21-20, in the North Hills League game.
