The Arroyo Knights, thanks to a solid defense and ever improving quarterback in Nathan Coto, cruised to a 44-6 victory over the Temple City Rams on Friday night at B.L. Bergstrom Stadium.

Coto completed 19 of 35 passes to six different receivers for 222 yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing 10 times for 53 yards and another score.

The Rams were shutout in the first half by the Knights defense. Arroyo’s Jesus Calvillo returned a pick for a touchdown near the end of the second quarter.

Temple City quarterback Nasser Benihani only completed 4 of 12 passes and was picked off twice. Running back Diego Arreola, who rushed for 67 yards on 15 carries, keyed TC’s only scoring drive of the night by finishing off a 12-play 75 yard drive with a two yard run.

The Rams are now 0-2 and have been outscored 99-8 in their first two games. Arroyo evened its record at 1-1.
