El Toro falls in a game of catch-up

FOR THE REGISTER

PALOS VERDES ESTATES – A 29-point cushion proved to be too much for El Toro to overcome as Palos Verdes took a 50-28 win over the visiting Chargers in a nonleague game Friday afternoon.

Palos Verdes (2-2) built a 29-0 advantage on a safety and four touchdowns during a 10-minute span from late in the first quarter to midway through the second before El Toro answered with two touchdown passes from Trey Tinsley for a 29-14 score at halftime.

Tinsley, who completed 40 of 57 passes for 350yards, hit Taylor Dodds from 17 yards with 4:08 left in the half and added an 11-yard strike to Dominic Collins with six seconds to go.

“We had a little hope at the end of the second quarter, and then coming out we're moving the ball and, unfortunately, we threw a pick,” El Toro coach Robert Frith said. “Turnovers kill you.”

The Chargers (1-3) began the second half with a drive from their 20 to the Palos Verdes 43 before Tinsley was intercepted by the Sea Kings' Lucas Cooper.

Palos Verdes then mounted a 72-yard drive capped by a 10-yard run by Stanton Gilbertson with 6:25 to go in the third, putting the Sea Kings up, 36-14.

After the teams exchanged punts, Tinsley threw another interception, this time to Hiro Yamamoto, who returned the ball 37 yards for a touchdown go give Palos Verdes a 43-14 advantage.

“Against an offensive team like El Toro, no lead is a safe lead,” Sea Kings coach Guy Gardner said. “As you saw, El Toro climbed back into this game.”

El Toro had an 80-yard drive, capped by a 16-yard touchdown pass from Tinsley to Collins to make it 43-21, then recovered an onside kick but saw the ensuing drive stall at the Palos Verdes 34.

Collins finished with 16catches for 163 yards.

Tinsley later hit Dodds for a 36-yard touchdown, making it 43-28 with 6:05 left.
