Banning the soccer sides of San Pedro in the classic Battle of the Harbor rivalry game

SAN PEDRO — A meeting this spring between soccer rivals Banning and San Pedro proved to be an aberration in a wild, 48-41 Banning win Friday night for Marine League play at Pirates Stadium.

San Pedro’s Robert Sarmiento blocked his 35-yard field goal attempt and went back when time ran out.

The Pirates took the ball inside the 3-yard line, but two false starts and a delay in the game penalty took the ball back before the finishing sequence.

Banning carried out the Battle of the Harbor rivalry at all-time 41-41-3. The Pilots (5-1, 1-0) prevented a two-game skid in the rivalry.

San Pedro (4–1,0–1) had won 13 of the previous 17 meetings, including a 64–19 loss in the short spring season, but Banning was set to run back Jacob Galloway for that competition. were without a star.

Galloway, a week removed from a five-touchdown performance, proved just how important his presence was and finished with two touchdowns—all in the first half.

Trailing 35-34, Banning took the lead on Caleb Nuhy-Yandle’s 1-yard touchdown run and Seth Fao made a 2-point conversion on a jump pass with 6:05.

Sanchez finished with a pair of touchdowns to lead the hosts.

Banning, trailing six after the first half of the first half, took the Pilots 28-27 at the start of the third quarter on a 46-yard touchdown catch from Fernando Romero.

Like the whole night, San Pedro had a reaction.

Robert Sarmiento zig-zag across the field for 45 yards for a score on catch-and-run. Then, he took the snap on a successful 2-point conversion and ran it through the quarter to give the Pirates a 35-28 lead.

Banning answered with an 11-yard Seth Fao run, but Snape was misplaced on the ensuing PAT to put San Pedro 35-34 to go into the final quarter.

At the start of the second quarter, a 55-yard touchdown from Jackson near San Pedro appeared to be a tightrope to Nick Fernandez. However, towards the end of his run, Fernandez stumbled from behind the end zone before reaching the goal line to deliver the ball back to Banning.

San Pedro defensive back Eliza Thorpe saved the Pirates from disaster, intercepting a pass on the ensuing play.

Fourth out of 24 and on 10, Jackson survived a sack and scrambled with a 19-yard run. After two plays, he punched in a keeper to tie the game at 14, with 7:06 left in the half.
