Varsity Hustles Through Their 2022-2023 Season

For many students, football games are a great environment to get involved in. Although Friday night lights are coming to an end, the season unraveled with different themes, activities, and school spirit to support the team.

This year, they started off their season by taking on Burbank and walking off with a 22-19 win. The scores were close but they came out on top in the end.

“I think the Burbank game this year was a really great memory. Everybody did their job. We were working together. Even when things were rough. Nobody was giving up and everybody was giving all they could to that game. When Greg made that game-winning kick, it was like all that hard work we put into the offseason just paid off in that one moment and it felt so great,” senior Nicolas Bitar recounts.

The first home game of the season was against Nordhoff High School and the team delivered with a 41-7 win. The season took a turn when they went against Buena and lost 14-35 at home. After this, they proceeded to lose against Ventura and Pacifica until they traveled to Oxnard and defeated Channel Islands High School with a final score of 27-0.

After this win, the team played against Oxnard for the homecoming game where senior Nicholas Bitar shared, “I’m pretty nervous. It’s not going to change my play because I’m nervous and then again, I am in every game. If anything, it’s going to motivate me to play even better, to play the best game I have all season.”

This game was a deciding factor in the team’s ability to make the playoffs this year, but they ended this game with a 7-48 loss.

More recently, the team had to prepare to face our rival school, San Marcos. The game started off positively for San Marcos as they had a 34-0 lead by the third quarter, but the Chargers made two touchdowns in the last quarter. Although the team scored in the end, San Marcos came out winning 34-14.

This season has been a mix of victories and losses but, nonetheless, the team shows up to represent Dos Pueblos. Be sure to cheer them on this Friday at their next game against Santa Barbara High School.
