The Serrano Diamondbacks Varsity football team started the CIF playoffs on Friday November 5th, 2021. In the first round of the CIF playoffs our Phelan Diamondbacks played Temescal Canyon in Lake Elsinore California with the winning score of 14-13 Serrano.

The first touchdown made by the diamondbacks,  Rigo Cabral #23 with the handoff from Tanner Chaffee #11, then the try at the extra point by Aiden Navarro #9 with the incomplete point. While Serrano was holding up a good defense, Koa Apana #1 scored the Titans first touchdown leaving the score 6-6 until the extra point was completed by the kicker Ismael Figueroa #6 leaving the score 7-6 Temescal.  While Serrano’s defense was holding back the Titans offensive plays the D-backs defensive tackle Sean Stinnett #20, sacked the Titans quarterback during first and second half leading to incomplete passes by Koa Apana #1. 

Starting off the second half it was a close game, scoring with another touchdown made by Rigo Cabral #23 followed by a two point conversion bringing the game to 14-7 Serrano. WIth the Titans only having a few minutes left of the game, they rallied to score another touchdown made by Grant Givens #4, but Ismael Figueroa #6 failed to tie the game with the extra point attempt.
