The San Dimas Saints rushed for a combined 627 yards and scored on nine of 12 possessions to rout the Arroyo Knights, 61-28, Friday night at B.L. Bergstrom Stadium in the Mid-Valley division semifinal.

Arroyo scored first on a 1-yard run by Randy Amezcua. Amezcua scored twice and rushed for 78 yards overall as the Knights were as close as 35-28 in the third quarter.

“I’m really proud of our guys and we battled the whole way, but we just couldn’t stop them. They do what they do and they do it very well. It didn’t matter what defense we had out there, we couldn’t stop them,” said Arroyo Head Coach Jim Singiser.

Knights quarterback Nathan Coto passed for 201 yards and a touchdown in his final game for Arroyo.

The Saints were led by former San Gabriel Matador, Joseph “The Count” Mayorga who set a school record for most yards rushing in a game. Mayorga rushed for 322 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead his team.

San Dimas is now 9-4 and will host Paraclete in the Mid-Valley division finals on Friday night.

The Knights season, and 11 game winning streak, ends with a record of 11-2.
