Buena Park too strong for Warren
DOWNEY – For the third consecutive week, Buena Park took its show on the road. And for the third straight week, the Coyotes came away with an impressive win.
Buena Park quarterback Deshaun Harvey threw four touchdown passes as the Coyotes cruised past Warren of Downey, 42-0, Friday night at Warren.
The Coyotes (3-0) have outscored their opponents, 126-6, in the first three games. Warren is 0-2-1.
“Everybody knows where they are supposed to be and we’re executing,” Harvey said. “The offensive line has been doing it all.”
Buena Park broke on top after taking advantage of a Bears miscue midway in the opening quarter.
Two plays after linebacker EJ Gowdy recovered a fumble at Warren’s 39, Harvey tossed an 11-yard TD pass to AJ Allen to give the Coyotes a 7-0 lead.
On its first series of the second quarter, Buena Park marched 88 yards in 10 plays to up its lead to 14-0. Harvey completed five passes on the drive and capped the march with a 4-yard touchdown run.
The Coyotes got the ball back with less than two minutes in the half and Harvey led a seven-play, 76-yard drive capped with a 21-yard TD pass to Victor Bates (6 catches 116 yards and 2 touchdowns) increasing Buena Park’s lead to 21-0 at the break.
The Coyotes outgained the Bears 259-118 in the opening half and the defense led by Ryan Nelson applied heavy pressure on Warren QB Chris Venegas all night.
Jeremiah Hawkins returned the second half kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown and Harvey fired touchdown passes of 63 and 64 yards to Robert Corner and Bates in the third quarter.
Harvey completed 17 passes to seven different receivers for 318 yards.
Venegas led the Bears (0-2-1) with 71 yards passing.
Buena Park will play its first home game next week against Pioneer.
