Mayfair vs. Huntington Beach High Football Game

The Mayfair Monsoons were coming off of being the suburban league champions last year and starting off this season in a new league. The first game of the season was a non-league game at Mayfair home stadium. The game was against the Huntington Beach High School Oilers in which Mayfair lost 13 to 20. But Mayfair fought to the very end, even scoring a touchdown in the last minute of the game.

The game started off with the Monsoons receiving the ball but not much else happened in the 1st quarter except that Mayfair fumbled the ball leading to Huntington receiving it. The start of the 2nd quarter started with not much happening except for a fumble by Huntington leading to Mayfair receiving it. Then with two long passes made by the Mayfair quarterback, Mayfair was at the 1 yard line. Then Mayfair quarterback threw the touchdown pass to #8 Jaiden Tanner with around 45 seconds left of the second quarter. Then Mayfair tried for the field goal but missed leaving the score 6 Mayafair - 0 Huntington. It was a Huntington ball, but during one of their passes it got intercepted by one of Mayfair players leading to the end of the 1st half.
