Charger Outstanding Performances and Results
DP (7-2, 2-1) stayed alive in the playoff race, with next week’s game at Ventura determining who earns the other berth,
thanks to contributions from all over, with six players notching at least 30 yards offensively. As a team, the Chargers put up over 500 yards in a 61-14 victory over San Marcos HS.
After a quick stop on defense, the Chargers took their first drive of the game 69-yards on six plays, capped off by a 23-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kellen Roberts to receiver Cyrus Wallace. The rest of the first half was much of the same, as the Chargers defense held the Royals to six yards of total offense before the break. A 36-yard touchdown pass from Roberts to Daniel Arzate put Dos Pueblos up 14-0 at the end of the first quarter.
In the second quarter, the Chargers broke the game open. Roberts hit Wallace for a 21-yard touchdown, then running back Irvin Miguel took a carry 49-yards for his second touchdown of the season. Miguel ran for 167 yards on seven carries in what was easily the best game of the senior’s year. Wallace pulled in four catches for 75-yards. Fellow Charger running back Blake Erwin found the end zone twice from one yard out, and Roberts scrambled down the right sideline for a 63-yard touchdown as the half expired. Roberts finished 13-for-19 with 184 yards and three touchdown passes, along with 63 yards rushing on two carries.
Dos Pueblos was up 51-0 at halftime. Miguel took the first handoff of the second half 58-yards, and Erwin bounced off defenders into the end zone from 15-yards out for his third and final touchdown. Erwin took six carries for 44 yards and hauled in four receptions for 57 yards on the game.
The Dos Pueblos defense was dominant on the night, keeping the Royals from converting on third or fourth down all night (where they went a combined 0-for-12), and forcing five punts. Defensive end Marcellous Gossett anchored the Charger line, notching two sacks and putting consistent pressure on Romo. Linemen Erick Nisich and Justin Padilla were also defensive forces on the night. A bad third-down snap by San Marcos resulted in a 19-yard sack in the end zone for a safety in the second quarter.
