Falcons can’t capitalize, fall to Apaches 47-6

FAIRFIELD — On a night that featured a total of seven fumbles, too few things went right for the Fairfield High football team as the Falcons fell 47-6 to visiting Vallejo in Solano County Athletic Conference play at Schaefer Stadium Friday night.

The Apaches and Falcons (1-7, 0-4 SCAC) each coughed the ball up three times. Fairfield dropped and recovered a fourth fumble.

From the outset, the Falcons looked disjointed and had trouble moving the ball.

Vallejo, meanwhile, had little trouble with the Fairfield defense, scoring on the opening possession on Jueit Davis’ 8-yard dash for a 6-0 lead after Fairfield stuffed the 2-point run attempt.

Davis and company ran roughshod over the Falcons, logging 347 rush yards and 413 yards total.

Fairfield got the ball to the Vallejo 49 on its initial drive, but a botched handoff was recovered by Vallejo at midfield. The Apaches then advanced the ball a grand total of eight yards before dropping it on a rush attempt by Danani Dillahunty.

But the Falcons still couldn’t capitalize and turned it over on downs. So it went for Fairfield, which also benefitted from 10 Vallejo penalties for 105 yards – fiver were of the 15-yard variety.

“Too much everything,” said Falcons associated head coach Adam Butler, who was standing in for head coach Eric Barber.

After recovering another Vallejo fumble, Fairfield was forced to punt it away, setting up the Apaches’ second TD, a 25-yard run by Davis for a 14-0 lead with 10 minutes, 50 seconds left in the half.

Fairfield again started to move the ball and quarterback Michael Arredondo hit receiver Mark Tupai for a 13-yard gain to the Vallejo 45, but Tupai dropped it after the catch and Vallejo recovered and returned it to the Fairfield 21.

three plays later Anthony Budil capped the drive with a 2-yard lunge for a 20-0 lead.

Two possessions later, Fairfield recovered a Vallejo fumble and finally got on the board capping a four-play, 42-yard drive with a 4-yard run by Eric Clark to make it a 20-6 game at the break.

That was as good as it got for the Falcons, though as they turned the ball over three times in the second half, while Vallejo ran off four unanswered touchdowns.

“Just a lack of execution,” Butler said. “Injuries, too many turnovers. (We) couldn’t really capitalize.”

A week after scoring three times against American Canyon, the Fairfield offense took a huge step backward, gaining just 93 yards.

Arredondo, who threw for 156 yards last week, managed just 20 on two completions with an interception.

The Falcons wrap their season next Friday at Vanden.

In junior varsity action, Vallejo won 14-6.

Fairfield (2-6, 0-4 SCAC) scored its touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 4-yard run by Dammonni Quinney. Eric Posey raced 49 yards with the ball to set up Quinney’s score.
