Buena Park overwhelms Pioneer with second-quarter flurry
BUENA PARK – Buena Park used a flurry of touchdowns in the second quarter to pull away from Pioneer of Whittier on Friday night and went on to defeat the Titans, 67-0, in a nonleague game.
Five possessions and five touchdowns in the second quarter turned a 13-0 first-quarter lead into a 46-0 halftime advantage for the Coyotes (4-0). The Titans are 0-4.
The speed of Jeremiah Hawkins provided the first-quarter lead for the Coyotes as he scored on a 30-yard pass reception and then simply turned the corner and pulled away from the Titans defense for a 63-yard touchdown run.
Hawkins got the Coyotes going again in the second quarter as he scored his third and final touchdown of the game on a 14-yard touchdown pass. Hawkins had 129 yards total offense.
Victor Bates proved Hawkins wasn’t the only Coyotes player with speed as he scored on touchdown catches of 47 and 58 yards in the second quarter.
Niguy Simms returned an interception 22 yards for a touchdown as the Coyotes also received scoring from its defense.. It was the second of three interceptions for Simms, who also had an interception return for a touchdown nullified by a penalty earlier in the game.
The final score of the first half came from quarterback Deshaun Harvey on a 5-yard run after he had orchestrated the offense to all of those points earlier in the game with four touchdown passes and 229 yards passing, all in the first half.
