Escalon Times - - SPORTS - By MARK VA­LEN­CIA Spe­cial To The Times

The Escalon Out­laws were on the road for a sec­ond week in a row, trav­el­ing to meet the Amador Jr. Buf­fa­los in Sut­ter Creek. The Out­laws were look­ing to bounce back from the loss they suf­fered last week to build some pos­i­tive mo­men­tum. They would have to make this ef­fort with­out a key player, as the in­jury bug has bit­ten the Out­laws, who al­ready have low num­bers on the side­line.

Amador drove the ball down in­side the Escalon 5-yard line fol­low­ing an Out­laws punt to open the game. A mis­han­dled ex­change and timely de­fen­sive hit shook the ball loose to be scooped up by Caleb Ca­vanaugh. He would re­turn the ball to the Escalon 8-yard line leav­ing a lot of work to get on the score­board. Un­for­tu­nately, the Out­laws could not gain any trac­tion to fol­low the jolt from the de­fense. The Jr. Buf­fa­los would have a short field to get to the Escalon end zone. Amador would break onto the score­board first with a sweep around the left end from four yards out. The point after touch­down con­ver­sion was com­pleted with a run through the left side of the de­fen­sive line mak­ing the score 8-0.

The Out­laws would take the short kick-off near­ing the end of the first quar­ter. Escalon would start their next drive from the Amador 40-yard line. As it has been dur­ing the early sea­son, Escalon con­trolled the drive with a mix of runs both in­side and out­side. Lo­gan An­der­son would carry the ball the fi­nal 8 yards on a dash around the right end. The point after touch­down con­ver­sion was stopped short of the goal line leav­ing Amador ahead 8-6.

Amador would start their next drive from their own 16-yard line. Ja­cob Martin would come up with a big de­fen­sive play, wran­gling the Jr. Buf­fa­los’ ball car­rier be­hind the line of scrim­mage pin­ning them in the shadow of their own goal post. The next play would be an­other fum­bled ex­change. This time Ryker Peters would fall on the loose ball. Donovan Rozevink would score on the next play with a quar­ter­back sneak from the 2-yard line. The point after at­tempt was con­verted by Peters with a plunge through the left side of the of­fen­sive line. Th­ese scores would make the tally 14-8 in fa­vor of the Out­laws.

Escalon would find the Amador end zone one more time in the fourth quar­ter on an­other run-sus­tained drive to put the game out of reach. Rozevink would again tote the ball the fi­nal dis­tance on a 1-yard race to the end zone py­lon around the right end. Martin would get a chance for his first point after kick of the sea­son and would con­vert to push the score to its fi­nal 21-8. Ay­den Wil­son and Sam Hi­no­josa would pitch in to help Tate Chris­tensen on de­fense to cor­ral the Jr. Buf­fa­los after their open­ing score in the first quar­ter.

The Out­laws will be back at the friendly sur­round­ings of En­gel Field to face the AMA Bull­frogs.

JU­NIOR VAR­SITY

The Jr. Var­sity Out­laws would notch an­other vic­tory in the early sea­son, this time 30-6 over the Amador Jr. Buf­fa­los. Ryan Lewis would tally a score from 40 yards out, while Reuben Moreno, David White and Jamin Miller all had short runs of their own.

An­thony Jones would lead the de­fen­sive ef­forts with an in­ter­cep­tion, step­ping in front of an Amador pass just be­fore half­time. Jones would also mark mul­ti­ple tack­les for loss wrap­ping up the Jr. Buf­fa­los’ ball car­ri­ers with rel­a­tive ease. Hay­den McPher­son and Jo­sue Li­mones each had an in­ter­cep­tion as well. Alan Jimenez, Cruz Snow and Gio­vanni Chavez each con­trib­uted to­ward the de­fen­sive ef­forts to keep the Amador ad­vances to a min­i­mum.

The Out­laws will be home next week and will try to ex­tend their win­ning streak to four at home on En­gel Field against the AMA Bull­frogs.

NOVICE

The Novice Out­laws had a tough game this week and suf­fered a dis­cour­ag­ing de­feat at the hands of the Amador Jr. Buf­fa­los 43-0. There were many lessons to be learned to take into the game next week against the AMA Bull­frogs.

This week was not all neg­a­tive. Ben Gon­za­lez was a con­sis­tent fac­tor car­ry­ing the ball as run­ning back and kick re­turner. Con­ner Mc­Dow­ell was a pos­i­tive pres­ence on the de­fen­sive side of the ball. Ethan But­ler and Pre­ston Sizuela gave all the ef­fort pos­si­ble play­ing an iron man style of foot­ball play­ing on both sides of the ball.

JU­NIOR NOVICE

The Jr. Novice was able to bat­tle to vic­tory over the Amador Jr. Buf­fa­los 4-3 in a hard-fought game. Al­lie Fiser, Frank Carter and Ja­cob Garza won the bat­tle in the trenches on both sides of the ball, of­fense and de­fense. The Out­laws tal­lied their scores with two rush­ing touch­downs each from Ben­net Gue­vara and Ian Trejo. The game was still in the bal­ance on the fi­nal drive from the Jr. Buf­fa­los. The Out­laws were able to get a stop in the de­fen­sive red zone to seal the win.

The youngest Out­laws will look to build on their re­cent suc­cesses next week against the AMA Bull­frogs at home on En­gel Field.
