This might be a first, certainly for the restructured Metro-Mesa League, when a pair of 6-0 teams square off in a league showdown on Friday. The teams in question are the Olympian Eagles and Otay Ranch Mustangs. Both measure up to their perfect starts so far. But only one can be 7-0.
That will be determined when the Eagles host the Mustangs. The winner likely will battle Eastlake for the league title. Kick-off is 7 p.m.
Otay Ranch defeated Bonita Vista, 40-10, last Friday to go up 1-0 in Mesa League play as Kyle Hawkins threw for 351 yards and five touchdowns and also rushed for 70 yards and one score. Chris Martin (six catches, 187 yards) caught three touchdown passes while Giovanni Meza (three catches, 95 yards) and Jevon Fields each made one TD grab.
For the season, Hawkins has passed for 1,130 yards and 12 touchdowns while Martin has racked up 728 receiving yards and nine TDs.
The Mustang defense came up with three sacks, three interceptions (two by Jordan Peterson) and three fumble recoveries. Otay Ranch limited Bonita Vista (0-1, 2-4) to 52 passing yards.
Delvon Miller keyed the Barons with 108 rushing yards while Caleb Su (three-yard run) and David Villasenor (25-yard field goal) accounted for the visitors’ scoring. The BV defense did record two picks as well as a sack and fumble recovery.
Meanwhile, Olympian hammered host El Capitan, 41-6, in a non-league game pitting Division III rivals. The Eagles rolled up 286 rushing yards (139 by Andrell Snowden) and scored six touchdowns — two by Sergio Bailey and one each by Isaiah Gibson, Christein Humphrey, Snowden and Harrison Hulin (eight rushes, 71 yards).
Bailey scored on a 15-yard reception and 80-yard punt return while Snowden scored on an 80-yard run. Christopher Humphrey passed for 102 yards and two TDs.
Snowden and Darius Jamon each had interceptions for Olympian while Angel Garcia kicked five PAT conversions.
