Forster and Vigna each shot 40 on the day, continuing their torrid season. The Chargers are 9-0 overall and 5-0 in league play with a rivalry battle against San Marcos next up on Tuesday.
Quarterback Jake Ramirez threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more to lead Dos Pueblos to a 42-7 non-league, senior night victory over Hueneme on Thursday.
Dos Pueblos won their fifth straight and improved to 5-1 on the season.
The Chargers controlled the ball early and often, scoring touchdowns twice in each of the first two quarters.
Ramirez opened the scoring with a 13-yard quarterback keeper on the first drive of the game after cornerback Daniel Arzate intercepted a pass from Hueneme quarterback Robert Baca III on the Vikings’ second offensive play of the game.
After another Hueneme drive ended as Erick Nisich and Matthew Molina sacked Baca on third down, the Chargers scored again on a 47-yard run from Erik Lopez.
Hueneme then strung together a 14 play, 41-yard drive into Charger territory, but Justin Padilla sacked Baca on third down, forcing a punt. The Chargers drove 80-yards on 13 plays and scored again on a nine-yard pass-and-catch from Ramirez to star receiver Cyrus Wallace. The two would connect again on a 54-yard completion to put the Chargers up 28-0. Wallace pulled down six catches for 133 yards.
Despite being held by the defender, Wallace made an incredible catch on third-and-12 to extend a Dos Pueblos scoring drive.
The Vikings didn’t go quietly into halftime, though. Hueneme drove 88-yards on eight plays and scored on a one-yard keeper by Baca with 23 seconds remaining in the first half. On the drive, Baca hit receiver Alexander Asberry twice for 56-yards. Asberry hauled in 10 receptions for 120 yards on the night.
The second half was much of the same for both teams. Dos Pueblos scored twice in the third quarter, as Ramirez scrambled eight-yards for his final touchdown of the night and Connor Lee punched the ball in from one yard out after a being tackled at the 1-yard line at the end of a beautiful 22-yard run.
Ramirez finished the night with seven carries for 66 yards and went 11-for-14 with 184 passing yards and no interceptions.

Boys Water Polo
Sammy Arshadi and Ethan Parrish combined for 13 steals, and Dos Pueblos jumped on Ventura for 10 goals in the first half of a 13-9 water polo win in a Channel League game at Ventura on Tuesday.
Parrish had seven steals to go with his four goals and two assists in the league-opening win for the Chargers. Arshadi had six steals, three goals and two assists.
The Chargers, the No. 5 ranke team in Division 3 of the CIF-Southern Section, opened up a 6-2 lead in the first period and led 10-5 at halftime.
Ventura narrowed the lead to 11-8 in the third period, but Dos Pueblos was able to hang on in the fourth period. Jason Teng played a big role in the win, scoring three goals and assisting on two others. Matt Binckley had three assists and 1 goal.
On Thursday, Dos Pueblos was clinging to a 2-1 lead against Santa Barbara High in the first period of Thursday’s Channel League boys water polo match, when Jacob Castillo of the Dons got free and drove on Chargers’ goalie Angus Goodner.
In the one-on-one duel, Goodner blocked Castillo’s shot as the buzzer went off to end the period. That play provided a huge boost for Dos Pueblos, and it erupted for five goals in the second period en route to a 12-6 victory at the Elings Aquatic Center.
Goodner stopped the lefty Castillo twice more in the second period and again in the fourth on a power play. Ethan Parrish, who scored six goals to lead the Chargers, raved about Goodner’s performance.
Parrish got the better of Dons’ defender Chase Raisin to pace DP to its second league win. The two standout players battled hard against each other. When Parrish managed to break free and score, the sophomore didn’t hold back his emotions.
Parrish scored two goals around a Goodner save to put the Chargers up 4-1 with 3:34 left in the second quarter. Raisin scored for the Dons on a restart and Parrish answered with a shot from long distance.
The Chargers did a good job shutting down Castillo, holding him to one goal, which came in the last seconds of the third quarter. A goal by Dario Bucy cut DP’s lead to 8-5 at the 6:03 mark of the fourth period.
The Chargers took charge from that point and scored four straight goals. Sammy Arshadi tallied two, Parrish converted a 5-meter penalty shot and Wyatt Meckelborg scored the last goal.
Dos Pueblos improves to 14-4 and 2-0 in league; Santa Barbara is 6-8 and 1-1.
