HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL ROUNDUP

In other nonleague games:

El Camino 14, USDHS 3--The No. 1 Wildcats (3-0) piled up 386 yards of total offense, 356 on the ground, but fumbled three times, missed one field goal and had another blocked, while the Dons (1-2) had no turnovers. Seth Morrison (5-137 rushing) scored on an 82-yard run. Bryant Westbrook's 60-yard run produced the other El Camino score. Mike Flanagan added 160 yards on 24 carries.

Torrey Pines 32, La Jolla 0--Josh Stern rushed for three touchdowns, and Joel Brown and Kevin Winters scored a touchdown apiece for the Falcons (2-1).

Simi Valley 34, Serra 28--Eric Bennett passes for over 300 yards for Simi Valley and Billy Dill rushed for a Serra school record 261 yards on 21 carries. Dill had touchdown runs of four and 53 yards, as the Conquistadors (1-2) scored 22 points in the fourth quarter. Bennett threw four touchdown passes, three to Tom Herman.

San Diego 14, Coronado 3--The Cavers (2-1) rolled up 215 yards of total offense, 214 on the ground. Mel Hernandez scored on a two-yard run in the first quarter and Westley Pierre rushed five yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Islanders fell to 0-3.

St. Augustine 31, Hoover 6--St. Augustine recorded its third rout in as many games, getting touchdowns run from Chris Sovay, Aaron Buckner and Esley Baker. Buckner also threw for a score.

How tough have things gotten for Hoover (0-3)? Quarterback Anthony Hardy's seven-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter was only the second of the year for the Cardinals (0-3), who have now given up 107 points. It did, however, spoil what could have been St. Augustine's second shutout.

Mission Bay 29, Clairemont 0--Mission Bay recorded its second shutout, allowing only 120 total yards to winless Clairemont.

"Our defense has just done a remarkable job this year," Buccaneer Coach Jerry Surdy said.

The offense and special teams weren't bad, either. Sunny Miller rushed for 73 yards and one touchdown in 12 carries, caught two passes for 11 yards and returned a punt 40 yards for a touchdown. Quarterback Steve Vincent, starting his first game after missing the first two with a stomach virus, completed eight of 20 passes for 82 yards and one touchdown.

Bonita Vista 17, Las Vegas Valley 14--Eric Turner rushed for 125 yards in 15 carries to lead the Barons (2-1) in Las Vegas. Brian Melancon added 55 rushing yards an Wayne Nankill completed half of his 14 passes for 80 yards and one touchdown.

Bonita Vista got off to a good start when Valley's Otis Tanner muffed the opening kickoff, and Aaron Baker recovered for Bonita Vista. Five plays later it was 3-0 after Scott Field's 22-yard field goal.

Mira Mesa 12, Las Vegas Chaparral 10--Chaparral's Lamont Price scored two second-half touchdowns in Chaparral's come-from-behind victory in Las Vegas. Price's second score came with less than three minutes remaining and put the finishing touches on Mira Mesa (2-1).

Josh Quinn's 35-yard field in the second quarter, and David Lynch's 15-yard run in the third quarter gave Mira Mesa a 10-0 lead. Lynch finished with 85 rushing yards in eight carries. Joe Martell, Rick Jackson and Tim Fay each had one interceptions for Mira Mesa.

Julian 55, Bishop's 37--Julian's trio of running backs Frankie Stewart (17 carries, 146 yards, two touchdowns), Anthony Howard (19-94-2) and Cory Burnett (15-84-2) proved too much for The Bishop's School (0-2). Stewart also had a 55-yard interception return for a touchdown as the Eagles surpassed 50 points for the third time this season.

Knight quarterback Steve Vasil completed 23 of 41 attempts for 221 yards and one touchdown.

University City 20, Madison 0--University City (3-0) still has yet to allow a point this season and has now racked up 117. Both marks are ranked first in the county. After a scoreless first-half, Paul Turner put the Centurions on top with a 50-yard touchdown run. Greg Russell (one-yard run) and Tony Armenta (17-yard run) scored the other touchdowns. Madison (1-2) sustained its second shutout.

Fallbrook 28, Oceanside 14--Quarterback John Dutton was 13 for 36 passing for 193 yards and three touchdowns to lead the No. 8 Warriors (3-0). The Pirate defense kept it close, tackling Dutton 10 times for losses, and the game was tied, 14-14, at halftime. Fullback Chris Hamer rushed for 70 yards on 13 carries for Oceanside (1-2).

Rancho Buena Vista 37, Westminster 6--After facing Morse and El Camino in the first two weeks of the season, Westminster was a welcome sight for RBV.

Westminster went 31 yards to score on its first possession, but RBV then fired up its ground attack and never looked back. Bill Pryor scored twice, including a 39-yard run, and Leon Hawes added two more touchdowns, including a 50-yard run, as the Longhorns built a 28-6 halftime lead.

Defensive back Kujanga Jackson intercepted Westminster quarterback John Mahurien twice. Mahurien was also tackled behind the line of scrimmage eight times.

"I thought we were prepared," Said Lion Coach Stan Clark. "They obviously have a lot more speed than we have and they out hit us. There's no excuse for that."

Valhalla 26, Granite Hills 14--Valhalla quarterback Derrick Habel completed five passes in seven attempts for 75 yards, including touchdown passes of 15- and 12-yards in the first quarter. Courtney Arrollado caught three passes for 55 yards, including the Norsemen's first score of the night.

Trevor Rodriguez, who carried 12 times for 99 yards, scored on a 15-yard run in the third quarter for Valhalla (1-2). Teammate Ian Barrno rushed 10 times for 62 yards. Granite Hills fell to 1-2.

El Capitan 28, Grossmont 0--El Capitan scored once in every quarter to upend defending Grossmont 3-A League champion Grossmont (2-1) at Grossmont.

Poway 53, San Marcos 0--Quarterback Travis Nichols threw two touchdown passes and rushed for two scores to lead the Titans, who scored 23 points in the first quarter and rolled.

Temecula Valley 30, Escondido 3--Escondido slipped to 0-3 with the loss at Temecula Valley (1-2). Escondido quarterback Kelly Pettigrew was 14 for 37 for 116 yards.
