San Dimas Football Runs Over Los Altoso

HACIENDA HEIGHTS >> It’s common knowledge among field football coaches that if San Dimas starts running the ball too fast, it’s usually going to be a bad night for the opposition.

Los Altos found the hard way on Friday night, but not without some worry.

The Saints scored three touchdowns in the first half and came back late in the second half for a 21-13 win over the hosts on the opening night of Vale Vista action.

The Saints ran 284 yards, which is the standard set by coach Mark Holman.

“It was a good effort, and it was a physical sport,” Holman said. “It was a physical sport and we thought it would be one.”

Sean D’Amato led the Saints. Senior hit the ball 23 times for 143 yards and a touchdown. The effort was coming off last week’s performance in which he ran for 187 yards in a final preseason game win over Don Lugo.

“He’s a great kid and I’m happy for him,” Holman said.

Los Altos (1-7, 0-1) was led by quarterback David Castillo, who completed eight of 16 passes for 143 yards and two touchdowns. His favorite target was David Titon-Perez, who caught five passes and one touchdown for 108 yards.

The combination connected late in the fourth quarter and left the game with 2:17 on an 82-yard pass that gave the Saints a 21-13 lead.

“I think it was a busted drama in our secondary,” Holman said, “but I’ll have to go back to the movie and watch it.”

San Dimas (6-2, 1-0) had 109 yards of total offense in the first half, 94 of which came in his wing-T running scheme. D’Amato, who was the leading rush in the first half for the Saints with 66 yards on seven carries, scored an 8:32 for 8 yards in the second quarter to extend a 21-0 lead to San Dimas.

Jesse Samek was the other Saint running back who left in the first quarter for a 7-0 San Dimas advantage with a 3:32 run of 1 yard on Saint’s early possession. The touchdown run kicked off a nine-play, 64-yard drive.

The San Dimas defense was responsible for the game’s second touchdown when a fumble recovery at the Saints 35-yard line was returned for a touchdown.

There were several bright spots for the winners in the first half. Senior running back Andrew Aranda scored several good runs as he led the team to the 51-yard run.

The winner joined the board in the third quarter when Castillo found Gabriel González behind the end zone on a 12-yard pass and cut the Saints’ advantage to 21-7. The play took place on the fourth down and on goal.

San Dimas have a home game next week against hardcore Northview while Los Altos have Thursday’s home game against Diamond Ranch.
