Tokay and Galt fall, Hawks win
Tokay High’s football team stayed winless on Friday, falling to 0-8 with a 50-0 loss at Lincoln in Stockton.
The Trojans jumped out to a 14-0 victory after one quarter with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Grant Stevenson to Alexander Chrim-Cordero and a 1-yard Elijah Godinez run, then bumped that up to a 35-0 lead by halftime.
Jahidi West scored on a 5yard run to make it 21-0, Chrim-Cordero scored on an 18-yard run to make it 28-0 and Stevenson hit Jonah Coleman on a 19-yard pass for the last score of the half.
Most of Lincoln’s drive were in the seven-play, 50-yard range as the Trojans methodically worked their way down the field. The Tigers (0-8, 0-3 TriCity Athletic League) had no response.
Two quick scores, one with a 2-point conversion, pushed Lincoln’s lead to 50-0 midway through the third quarter before the Trojans (2-6, 2-1) eased off the gas and cruised through a scoreless fourth quarter.
Liberty Ranch 42, El Dorado 33 — Matthew Hopper threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more as the Hawks overcame a late rally by El Dorado for their first Sierra Valley Conference victory of the season.
Liberty Ranch led wire-towire thanks to a missed pointafter attempt on El Dorado’s first touchdown, which left the Hawks with a 7-6 lead courtesy of Hopper-s first touchdown run. The two teams traded scores in the first quarter, with Hopper’s run and a 13-yard Hopper pass to Gabe Nino. El Dorado responded with Danny Bell’s 5-yard run and Tyson Hamburg’s 14-yard run, with Leonardo Soto’s two point-after kicks making the 1-point difference.
The second quarter made the difference for the Hawks (35, 1-2 SVC), with a Jonathan Thomas 2-yard touchdown run, a 22-yard touchdown run by Nino and a 21-yard Hopper touchdown pass to Nino, for which El Dorado didn’t have an answer. Liberty Ranch led 35-13 at halftime.
The Cougars salvaged what was threatening to turn into a rout with two third-quarter touchdowns — an 81-yard run
by Kai Cordero and a 65-yard pass from Bell to Ian Deal. It was a 10-point game heading into the fourth quarter.
But Hopper struck again, with a 29-yard run to give the Hawks a 42-25 lead. A late 45-yard Bell run (with his own 2-point conversion) wasn’t enough to close the gap.
Rosemont 54, Galt 14 — Things didn’t go as well for the Warriors in Friday’s home game. Galt was the victim of four rushing touchdowns by Dalonte Baskerville and two touchdowns by quarterback Kyle Masterson in a 54-14 loss.
Rosemont (4-4, 1-2 SVC) went up early, with a Zion Gideon run and Baskerville’s first touchdown leading to a 14-0 Rosemont lead after the first quarter.
Another Baskerville touchdown, followed by an 11-yard Masterson pass to DeMarco Brodnax led to a 26-0 Rosemont lead.
Galt’s only response, near the end of the first half, was a touchdown pass from Robert Bulahan Jr. to Zachary Cirac.
Another Baskerville touchdown, his third, was the only score of the third quarter, and he started off the fourth with a 70-yard score before Bulahan answered with a 99-yard quarterback keeper.
A short quarterback sneak by Masterson, coupled with a 99-yard interception return by Brodnax sealed the game for Rosemont. Galt fell to 4-4 overall, and 0-3 in the SVC.
