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.
