Saddleback 42, Santa Ana 14
Ramiro Chavez gained 171 yards in 29 carries, scoring on runs of 19 yards, one and two yards for Saddleback (4-5, 3-2) at the Santa Ana Bowl. Guillermo Garcia rushed for just 25 yards in eight carries, but scored on runs of 10 and four yards for the Roadrunners. Albert Partida scored on a 35-yard run and finished with 117 yards in 12 carries for Santa Ana (4-5, 1-4), but the Saints committed six turnovers. Kyle Smith scored Santa Ana's other score, a 26-yard touchdown reception.
Santa Ana junior quarterback Felix Munoz, who underwent surgery to relieve swelling in his brain after he collapsed on the sideline during the first quarter of the Saints' 34-7 loss to Westminster last month, attended his first game since then.
Munoz, wearing a Santa Ana football jersey, received an enthusiastic welcome as he walked to midfield for the coin toss before Saturday's game, then joined his teammates on the sidelines as a spectator.
According to Santa Ana Coach Jesse Gomez, Munoz is currently being home-schooled and will not play again this season, but he appears to be making a strong recovery.
"He looks great. He's walking, talking, doing everything," Gomez said. "The fact that he's healing as well as he is is just a testament to the kind of kid he is. He's just a fighter and rises to any challenge. Everybody was overjoyed to see him."
Junior Alex Gober, who has replaced Munoz in the Saints' lineup, completed nine of 21 passes for 146 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions against Saddleback. He is 69 of 143 passing for the season, with nine touchdowns and six interceptions.
