The San Dimas Saints registered over 400 yards rushing and 572 yards overall in a 70-27 steamrolling of the Baldwin Park Braves Friday night Valle Vista League play.
The Saints led 21-6 at the end of one and extended it to 42-13 at the half. They scored the last four touchdowns of the game to reach the 70 plateau.
The Braves cut the lead to 42-27 with a pair of quick scores to open the third but a turnover and and then a recovery of a kick off led to two touchdowns for San Dimas and the rout was back on.
The tension was ratcheted up when the Baldwin Park captains refused to shake hands with the San Dimas captains after the coin flip and were hit with a unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
The Saints immediately cashed in when Josh Avila went 70-yards for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. Avila rushed for 75 yards and the touchdown on two carries and also threw for 156 yards and three scores.
Braves quarterback Michael Moran threw for 242 yards and three touchdowns, including two to Jayson Miller for 8-yards in the first quarter and 86 in the third. Moran completed passes to nine different receivers.
San Dimas improves to 3-4 overall and 3-0 in the Valle Vista while Baldwin Park loses for the first time this year and is 5-1 and 1-1 in league.
