Costa Mesa vs. La Quinta
When/where: Tonight, 7 at Bolsa Grande High
Key Mustangs: Sr. OT-DT Andrew Albers; Sr. RB-DE Tyler Sheffner (107 yards and four TDs on 33 carries); Sr. CB-KR DaSean Grayson (three kickoff returns for TDs)
Key Aztecs: Sr. RB Nicky Luu (228 yards and two TDs on 49 carries); Sr. OL-DL Andoni Hernandez; Sr. WR-SS Lewis Reupena (eight catches for 92 yards and two TDs)
Breakdown: The Mustangs (0-4) are looking to end their winless start to the season … Costa Mesa's last 0-5 start was two years ago and it turned it around, going 5-1 the rest of the way … La Quinta (1-2) picked up its first victory of the season, beating Fairmont Prep, 27-16, last week … The Mustangs hold a 3-1 edge against La Quinta, with Costa Mesa winning the last contest, 63-0, in 1999 … Against teams from the Orange Coast League, the Aztecs are 1-8 since 2006, when the league was formed … La Quinta is one victory away from matching last year's win total.
