Duarte Falcons secured a first round Northwest Division victory over the Maranatha Minutemen, 27-17, on Friday night at Maranatha High School in the CIF playoffs.
Duarte’s Jordan Johnson scored on a two yard run with 2:38 remaining and Adam Moline helped clinch the victory shortly thereafter with a red zone interception for the Falcons.
The win was Duarte’s first in the post-season since defeating L.A. Baptist (Now Heritage Christian) in 2008. It was also the team’s fourth straight win and improved them to 7-4 overall. The loss closes out Maranatha’s first season under new HC Jude Oliva with an 8-3 record. The Falcon victory snapped a six game Minutemen winning streak.
