Monte Vista Sick of Losing, Dominates Livermore

There would be no repeat of last year’s miracle finish, and certainly no
second straight loss
. This was all Mustangs, from start to finish. Steve Herendeen of the Contra Costa Times reports.

Scoring almost at will in the first half, Monte Vista (3-2, 1-1 EBAL) rolled up 555 yards of offense and coasted past the Cowboys (3-2, 0-2) to the delight of the sizable homecoming crowd.

Quarterback Jeff Lockie was 11 for 22 passing for 179 yards, including first-half touchdown passes of 23 yards to Bryce McGovern (five catches, 128 yards) and 13 yards to Riker McClaskey. The 6-foot-2 senior also ran for a 48-yard touchdown, leading the Mustangs to a 41-0 halftime lead.

Lockie had plenty of help.

Dalis Bruce rushed for 127 yards on 16 carries, including scoring runs of 9 and 7 yards, and Christian Anderson had 76 yards and two touchdowns. The Mustangs also got a touchdown from defensive lineman Nicolas Turcotte, who stripped Livermore quarterback Brandon Hall and rumbled 24 yards for a touchdown to close out the first half.
