Oilers showcase talents in Jr. Clinic Division victory

September 28, 2011|From Staff Reports

The Huntington Beach Jr. Clinic Division Oilers remained perfect on the season Saturday by shutting down the Corona Panthers, 39-0, in Jr. All-American Football action.

Last week, Huntington shut out the South Orange County Patriots, 44-0.

Taking a cue from Coach T.J. Fletcher's pregame message — "Win your battle on every play and good things will happen" — the Oilers did just that Saturday in a game where nearly every Oiler carried the ball.

Huntington's first scoring drive was set up by runs from running back Aden Eckenwiler and Lyrik Fata, which set up a 10-yard sweep by Dominic Peseti to the end zone. Peseti followed shortly with another touchdown run. Running back Blake Gilbert pushed through the line for the extra point.

Jonah Del Rosario, Nick Skorheim and Troy Fletcher added touchdowns.

Defensive Coordinator Dave Skorheim's stifling defense, led by Jonah Del Rosario, Garrett Dailey, Jake Favazza, Luke Frederick, Marino Hernandez and Nathan Halloran, prevented the Panthers from getting a single first down. The Oilers caused five fumbles and recovered three.

Downey 30, Huntington Beach 28: Huntington fell behind, 24-0, near the end of the third quarter but roared back only to fall short of catching the Mustangs.

Downey used its run game to bolt to the big lead, but Huntington adjusted and Oilers Danny Peseti, Andrew Stephens, Donovan Montoya, Dylan Izykowski and Cameron Renne shut down the run and forced the Mustangs to go to their passing game. A key fourth-down stop late in the third quarter by Samuel Harnisch set up a score by Cayson Fincher for Huntington's first touchdown.
