Saddleback senior running back Isiah Franks bolts through a line of defenders as he picks up some yards running the ball during the first half of Friday's game against Orange Glen.

Orange Glen just too much for Saddleback

FOR OCVARSITY.COM

SANTA ANA – Despite being down by only one at the half, Saddleback could not rally, falling to Orange Glen, 41-20, on Friday in a nonleague game at the Santa Ana Bowl.

Saddleback saw hard-nosed running from Isiah Franks, who carried 14times for 115 yards and two scores. However, Franks running wasn't enough to lead a thin Saddleback side to its first win.

Saddleback entered the game missing two position players — tight end Alex Pineda and wideout Emilio Garcia. To make matters worse its quarterback Devin Toussaint noticeably limped at different points in the game, even coming out for two series in the fourth.

Even hurt, Toussaint threw for 37 yards on 6-of-11 passing.

While Saddleback (0-3) kept it close, it couldn't get over the hump seeing aone-point halftime deficit balloon to 21 by game's end.

Orange Glen (2-2) played two consistent halves of football behind tailback Roger Rickman, who ran 124 yards on 16 carries and three scores.

He took a scary hit in the third, forcing him to leave the game. But the Patriots offense didn't skip a beat as Rickman's backup, Semaj Wren, carried seven times for 38 yards and two touchdowns.

Saddleback just didn't have the manpower to win.
