If there is one thing that can be said about eight man football - it is not boring. The game Friday night at Ventura against Tripoli was no exception, as a total of 16 touchdowns were scored. Unfortunately, the seven touchdowns Ventura scored weren’t enough to take down the Panthers. They fell, 64-51, in the high-scoring showdown.
