Castaic’s varsity team getting ready to start the second half of their game against Royal At Canyon High School on Friday, Aug. 25.

The Castaic Coyote football team picked up an impressive 36-12 win against the Royal Highlanders on Aug. 25 at Canyon high school.

Not only is it the first win of the season for the Coyotes, but head coach Sirr Guy Shakir picked up his first win since becoming the head coach of the team last school year.

“They beat us pretty bad last year, so this win is a little sweeter because of it,” Said Coach Hodge, one of the assistant coaches for the Coyotes.

The Coyote’s offense was electric last night, as junior quarterback Tyler Lewis picked up 171 total yards along with 3 TDs.

Wide receiver Lucas Milan had a solid performance for Castaic’s first home game, as he racked up a touchdown reception, 96 receiving yards, and a 65-yard kickoff return.

“It feels amazing,” Milan said in an interview with the SCV Signal, “Just to be able to help my team get the win.” 

The Coyotes didn’t start so hot at the beginning, though, drawing three penalties on the first drive and another two on Royal’s first drive as well.

It didn’t take long before Castaic started to run the ball, with sophomore running back Monty Coleman exploding in the first half with 70 yards and picking up a 16-yard touchdown later in the first drive for the Coyotes.

The defense also had some highlights, with defensive end Cyrus Gradoville getting a sack on Highlander quarterback, Crighton Ae. 

For a moment, Royal seemed to gain a little momentum in their last drive of the first half after converting on fourth and 1 and getting a first down. The momentum was quickly squashed as Ae threw an interception to defensive back Alexis Silva for the Coyotes. This gave Castaic one more shot to score before the half ended.

Lewis connected with Milan for a 52-yard touchdown pass, ending the first half.

Now that they have their first blowout win under their belt, Castaic is looking to take that momentum next week to Burbank high school in Burbank. Their next home game will be on Thursday, September 7 against Eastside high school. It will be Castaic’s second annual homecoming game.

“Next week I just want to see the same energy,” Milan said, “The same punch-them-in-the–mouth energy.”
