SUNSET LEAGUE : Chargers Shut Down Santa Ana

Timon Jeske's two touchdowns and Adam Cancelleri's running helped Edison shut out winless Santa Ana, 32-0, in a Sunset League game at Huntington Beach High Thursday.

With Edison leading, Jeske scored his first touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Geoff Bell with 18 seconds left in the second quarter. Jeske's second touchdown, a 40-yard pass from Bell, came with 3:42 remaining in the third quarter.

Cancelleri, who gave Edison a 13-0 lead on a one-yard run with 1:20 left in the first quarter, carried nine times for 116 of Edison's 248 yards rushing.

"We needed this win, we had to have it--it was our best game," said Edison Coach Dave White. "Our defense showed great effort."

In the first half, Edison (3-2 season, 1-1 league) held Santa Ana to 56 yards. Edison finished the game with 313, Santa Ana 198.

"We moved the ball down to the (Edison) 20 pretty well, but we just couldn't punch it in," Santa Ana Coach Robert Hinman said. "We just made some mistakes."

Santa Ana (0-5, 0-2) threatened three times in fourth quarter but lost possession when it failed to make a first down from the Edison 13 (9:44), when a fourth-down pass was deflected at the 30 (6:24) and when it fumbled at the five after a pass completion in the final 1:45.

For the Saints, Oscar Miranda blocked a Kevin Bever point-after kick and had three receptions for 73 yards. Alan Castillo also blocked a Bever kick. On offense, Mark Fausto completed nine of 20 passes for 112 yards, and Bernard Hardman carried 20 times for 97 yards.
