Eagles 51 - El Modena 6

ORANGE, CA., November 22, 1996 – The CIF Division V playoffs opened under rainy skies, and as the game went on, it got wetter and wetter for the Vanguards. Billy Newman scored 3 TDs while rushing for 176 yards on only 11 carries. Carson Palmer added 2 scores of his own on quarterback draws near the goaline. The Vanguards did manage to cut the deficit to 21-6 early in the second quarter, but a blocked punt led to another score and the rout was on. El Modena’s touchdown was the only score in the playoffs allowed by the Eagles.
