JSerra runs away from Chino Hills


CHINO HILLS – It’s not often that a team goes into Husky Stadium and shuts down Chino Hills from the start, but that’s exactly what JSerra did Friday night.

Avery Williams scored on a 6-yard touchdown run just more than two minutes into the game and the Lions cruised to a 42-14 nonleague victory.

JSerra’s dual quarterback threat of Riley O’Brien and Matt Robinson accounted for two touchdowns apiece and Williams scored three times.

“We studied them on film and wanted to match their intensity,” JSerra coach Jim Hartigan said. “We got off to a quick start and we’re still testing things out with two quarterbacks. Both Riley and Matt give us different things and Avery ran the ball well.”

Robinson connected with Conor O’Brien on a 2-yard touchdown pass midway through the first quarter, and three minutes later, Riley O’Brien found Williams on a 3-yard touchdown strike to stretch the lead to 21-7.

Robinson also scored on a 31-yard run, while Michael Zabran’s 32-yard touchdown reception from Riley O’Brien gave the Lions a comfortable 35-7 lead by halftime.

Riley O’Brien was 6-of-10 passing for 105 yards and rushed for 45 yards on three carries.

But the highlight of the game was his 50-yard connection to his older brother, Conor.

“That was awesome to throw a long pass to my big brother,” Riley O’Brien said. “We’re playing really well as a team. We’re not intimidating to look at, but we play fundamentally sound football. I don’t mind not getting all the snaps, because it helps give me some rest to play defense.”

Williams finished with 94 yards on 18 carries, including a 16-yard touchdown in the third quarter that extended the lead to 42-7.

Robinson passed for 77 yards and rushed for 47.

Grady O’Donnell supplied Chino Hills’ offense with 164 yards rushing on 17 carries, including touchdowns of 45 and 19 yards.
