SOUTHERN SECTION ROUNDUP: RECORDS FALL IN CANYON'S 42-7 ROUT.

Byline: Daily News

A multitude of school records fell as host Canyon scored 42 unanswered points and defeated Saugus 42-7 in a Foothill League game Friday night.

The 42 points give Canyon a season total of 447, surpassing the 437 in 1988. And for the second consecutive regular season, Canyon finished 9-1, 4-1 - the first time it has won nine games in back-to-back seasons since 1987-88.

Nate Longshore completed 24 of 37 passes for 391 yards, breaking his own school record, and four touchdowns. Louis Montano rushed for 140 yards and scored his 27th touchdown of the season, tying the school mark.

Sean Coen caught 11 passes, giving him 84 catches for the season, a school record. And his two touchdowns gave him 15 touchdown receptions for the season and 24 for his varsity career, both school records.

Saugus, buoyed by the unexpected return of Hunter Smith, scored the game's first touchdown on a 2-yard run by Anthony Montero. It was Smith's first game back after a serious neck injury suffered Oct. 17. However, despite driving into Canyon territory six more times, Saugus (2-8, 0-5) failed to score again.

--Camarillo 21, Rio Mesa 13: Quarterback Donald Brown and running back James Gault rallied host Camarillo (5-5, 4-1) to two second-half touchdowns and a tie for the league title with Hueneme of Oxnard.

The victory gave Camarillo (5-5, 4-1) the league's second berth in the Div. IV playoffs because the Scorpions lost to Hueneme.

Rio Mesa (3-7, 3-2) had a chance to earn the league's top playoff spot with just over a minute left in the game. But the Spartans' drive stalled at the Camarillo 33.

Rio Mesa led 13-7 at halftime on 36- and 32-yard field goals by Jared Strubeck and a 1-yard scoring run by quarterback Brian DiDomizio.

Brown, who had on a 12-yard scoring pass to Alex Leaupepe in the first half, hit Brandon Fonger for a 12-yard score in the third quarter to give Camarillo a 14-13 lead.

TRI-VALLEY LEAGUE

--Oak Park 27, Oaks Christian 24: Oak Park scored on a trick play from the 1-yard line as time expired to upset host Oaks Christian of Westlake Village 27-24 and clinch second place in the Tri-Valley League on Friday night.

With 21 seconds remaining, Oak Park (9-1, 5-1) believed it had won when officials signaled a touchdown on a run by Anthony Monteleone.

But after a conference among the officials, it was ruled there was no touchdown and the ball was placed at the 1. On the next play, with 16 seconds remaining, Monteleone was stopped for no gain and the clock continued to run as Oak Park scrambled for a final play.

The ball was snapped with three seconds remaining and Nolan McNair spiked the ball. The score board clock did not stop and Oaks Christian ran off the field in celebration, believing it had won.

The officials, however, called the teams back to the 1-yard line, ruling the spike occurred with one second remaining.

McNair pitched the ball to running back Monteleone, who then passed the ball back across the field back to McNair, who fell into the end zone for the winning score.

Oak Park held running back Aaron Ware to 59 yards on nine carries.
