Letting them play: Torrey Pines football is back

Torrey Pines High School football returned to the field on March 12.

The Friday night lights were turned on once again March 12 for a rare March football match-up between Torrey Pines High School and Cathedral Catholic. The Dons dominated on their home field 41-0.

Being able to play football again meant teams underwent COVID-19 tests before the game, coaches and cheerleaders wore masks, in-person fans were limited and the game was live-streamed for people to watch from home.

In their shortened six-game season, the Falcons will next take on Carlsbad on March 19. Catch the livestream at
