Sonora offense finds its rhythm vs. Mayfair


BELLFLOWER – Sonora's Jacob Fimbres and Cole McDonald accounted for all eight touchdowns and 589 yards of offense in the Raiders' 43-14 victory over Mayfair of Lakewood on Friday night in a nonleague contest at Bellflower High.

Fimbres, a 5-foot-10, 160-pound running back was sensational, with five touchdowns, including two rushing, two receiving and one passing.

He caught 60- and 73-yard TD passes from McDonald, scored on runs of 34 and 1 yards, and threw a 29-yard score to Jason Clayton. In all, Fimbres ran for 107 yards on 10 carries and caught three passes for 142 yards.

“I know I have to work harder than other players (because of my size) and it's all been paying off,” Fimbres said. “We really seem to be coming together as a team.”

McDonald completed 9 of 11 passes for 213 yards, including the two scores to Fimbres. He rushed for 82 yards on nine carries, including a 1-yard TD run.

“We were a very complete offense tonight, because we were able to use a lot of different weapons this team has,” McDonald, the 6-foot-4 Sonora quarterback said. “We're really buying into the system, but we still have a lot to improve upon.”

Andrew Martinez led Mayfair (3-1) with 100 yards on 19 carries. He scored on a 1-yard TD run late.

Steven Riley had three catches for 32 yards before most of the Sonora starting offense left after the third quarter.

Sonora (3-0) will play host to Yorba Linda on homecoming for the Raiders next Friday.
