-Ruben Elias and Joseph Centeno both accounted for over 100 yards on the ground, Tizoc Monarrez and Robert Angulo each came down with a touchdown grab, and La Puente as a team breached the goal line a total six times in the process of shutting out Sierra Vista 42-0 on their home field Friday night in a Montview League match-up.
Elias, the Warriors main offensive weapon on the ground, touched the ball 12 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Elias scored on a powerful 25 yard run in the second to give La Puente a 22-0 advantage with 2:51 remaining. Elias then capped off a 7-play drive with 8:41 in the third quarter, giving LP a comfortable 35-0 advantage.
The Warriors (4-2, 2-1) played very opportunistic and capitalized off the Dons (2-2, 1-1) mistakes early. Five plays into the opening drive, LP back Jose Carrillo fumbled the ball and it was recovered by Joseph Sanchez at the 10 yard line. La Puente countered with a 16 play 90 yard drive and score with quarterback Ivan Vasquez hitting Angulo for the opening score.
