VALLEY CENTER After making one of his only mistakes of the night, Mission Hills High quarterback Connor Wynn was all but unstoppable.
Following a second-quarter interception, Wynn completed 11 straight passes before calling it a night, leading the No. 2-ranked Grizzlies to a 45-0 whitewash of Valley Center in a nonleague game Friday night.
“I shouldn’t have thrown that pick,” said Wynn, a senior who completed 15 of 18 passes for 215 yards in 2½ periods of work. “I really wanted to take it out on the defense after that.”
That he did, tossing four touchdown passes in the first half and punctuating his effort with a 12-yard scoring run before leaving the game midway through the third period. If there were any chance of the Grizzlies looking ahead to next week’s showdown against top-ranked Oceanside, Wynn and his teammates weren’t about to let that happen.
“We were focused on this game and we took care of business,” Wynn said. “We can start thinking about Oceanside tomorrow.”
Grizzlies coach Chris Hauser echoed his quarterback’s thought process. After all, his team was on the road against Valley Center, a five-time section champion since 2004.
“We are still a work in progress,” Hauser said. “All I have to do is tell our guys to look up at the press box here and see all those CIF championship banners. We’re not about to let up,”
