Christopher Soto used his legs and his right arm to lead the Huntington Beach Green Chargers to a 24-6 victory Saturday over the Hacienda Heights Phantoms in Pop Warner Football Mighty Mite Division action at Manzanita Park in Hacienda Heights.
By the time the game had finished, all of Soto's teammates could say they made a contribution.
Soto had touchdown runs of 49, 52 and 30 yards on his way to rushing for 156 yards on just seven carries. He completed two passes — both to Cole Koffler — totaling 29 yards and connected on scoring passes on all three point-after-touchdown attempts. Two of those passes went to Dillon Blake and one to Jake Brown.
"We had an excellent passing game today," Chargers Coach Dareld Karns said. "That's the first time at the Mighty Mite level (ages 8, 9 and 10) where I actually saw the quarterback (Soto) look off a receiver and throw to another guy."
