Escalon Times - - SPORTS - By MARK VALENCIA

The Escalon Out­laws were on the road this week vis­it­ing the Arg­onaut Jr. Mus­tangs. Fol­low­ing is a re­cap of the con­tests.

VAR­SITY

The Out­laws were look­ing to build on their week #1 suc­cess to ex­tend their record to 2-0. Un­for­tu­nately, the Out­laws ran into a buzz saw of sorts. Escalon had few an­swers to the Jr. Mus­tangs’ run­ning at­tack. Arg­onaut scored 22 unan­swered points be­fore Escalon was able to make its own mark on the score­board. Matthew Bap­tista jumped in front of an Arg­onaut re­ceiver for an in­ter­cep­tion. Bap­tista picked up a few blocks and re­turned the in­ter­cep­tion 60 yards for a touch­down. The point af­ter touch­down con­ver­sion at­tempt was stopped short of the goal line mak­ing the score 22-6.

Arg­onaut was able to get to the Escalon end zone one more time be­fore the half­time in­ter­mis­sion with a sus­tained drive pow­ered by the run­ning game. Most of the Jr. Mus­tangs scores came from long range. The point af­ter con­ver­sion was stopped, but Arg­onaut pushed the lead to 28-6 at half­time.

The Out­laws would start the sec­ond half from the 50-yard line af­ter a failed on-side kick. Escalon would move the ball steadily down field on tough run­ning by Bap­tista, Ryker Peters and Lo­gan An­der­son. Dono­van Rozevink cashed in the of­fen­sive ef­fort on a 1-yard dive into the end zone through the right side of the line. Bap­tista was able to punch in the point af­ter con­ver­sion to make the score 28-14 in fa­vor of the Jr. Mus­tangs.

The Out­laws could not hold the Arg­onaut on­slaught, sur­ren­der­ing an­other touch­down af­ter a su­perb de­fen­sive play by Tate Chris­tensen tack­ling the Jr. Mus­tangs run­ning back in the back field for a loss. Chris­tensen had many sim­i­lar stops dur­ing the game; Escalon just could not build on those small suc­cesses. Arg­onaut would score with the point af­ter con­ver­sion mak­ing the score 36-14. Escalon would reach the Arg­onaut end zone one last time. The drive was a quick strike as Rozevink found an open Owen Nash be­hind the Jr. Mus­tangs’ de­fense for a 32-yard gain. Two plays later An­der­son would race around the left end for a 26-yard score. The point af­ter con­ver­sion was stopped. Escalon was able to inch as close as they would get 36-20.

Arg­onaut would take the ball to the end zone one more time be­fore the fi­nal horn would blow. The point af­ter would be con­verted and the fi­nal score would be set at 44-20.

Escalon will be on the road again next week to meet the Amador Jr. Buf­faloes.

JU­NIOR VAR­SITY

The Escalon Out­laws Jr. Var­sity was able to cor­ral the Arg­onaut Jr. Mus­tangs with a 32-8 vic­tory push­ing their record to 2-0. Jamin Miller led the Out­laws on of­fense with two rush­ing touch­downs and one through the air. Ryan Lewis was on the re­ceiv­ing end of the touch­down pass from Miler to fin­ish off a 45-yard pitch, catch and run. Ruben Moreno added an­other touch­down to ac­count for all of the Out­laws’ scor­ing.

The Escalon de­fen­sive ef­fort was led by Jaxon Coy, An­thony Jones and Jo­sue Li­mones.

The Escalon Out­laws Novice dis­played ex­tra­or­di­nary dom­i­nance on the field against the Arg­onaut Jr. Mus­tangs. The Out­laws were able to score each time they touched the ball.
