Story by Pfc. Raquel Barraza
MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – The Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Falcons tamed the 1st Marine Regiment Bulldogs at the Paige Field House football field aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., with a final score of 26-12, Sept. 26.
With another win under their belt, Falcons are one step closer to getting to the championships.
The Falcons played a good game, especially with the offensive side running the ball and scoring for the team, explained Gunnery Sgt. Dione Briscoe, assistant offensive coordinator with the MCAS Miramar Falcons and a Washington native.
The team ran the ball very well and gained over 100-yards rushing.
Even though the Falcons won the game, coaches and players plan to continue improving themselves to be the best.
“We could’ve played better, and we’re going to continue to practice to prepare ourselves for upcoming games,” said Briscoe.
To ensure the Falcons play to their highest potential, coaches kept the mindset that they were down in points, added Briscoe.
“We keep them in that mind set because we want the best out of them and want them to play their hardest through the entire game,” said Briscoe.
Even with repeated wins, the players still focus on teamwork above all else.
“They played exceptionally but are still working on the teamwork on the team to play better,” said Juanita Ramsey, a Falcon’s fan and girlfriend of quarterback Sgt. Herman Dillard.
Fans place confidence in the team’s ability to make it to the Best of the West Championship for the second year in a row.
“We went last year and we’re definitely going [again] this year,” said Ramsey.
Falcons intend to stay prepared for games to come as they work to fight their way to the championships again. The next game is set for Oct. 2, and the Falcons will be ready to soar into another win.
