Reyes helps Elsinore race past Beckman
WILDOMAR – Anthony Reyes rumbled to 333 rushing yards and found the end zone six times on Friday, leading Elsinore to a 42-24 win over Irvine Beckman.
The senior needed only 17 carries to accomplish the feat, while accumulating over 400 all-purpose yards.
“This one was great to have on family night,” Reyes said. “I didn't really have the games that I would have liked in the first two weeks, and it's refreshing to have a game like this and see hard work pay off.”
The win keeps Elsinore (3-0) undefeated on the season.
Elsinore got the scoring started with its opening drive of the game when Reyes ran into the end zone from 27 yards out on the fifth play of the drive. But the lead was erased in the start of the second quarter with the execution of a perfect flea flicker from Beckman.
The trick play, which saw Mikael Mian catch an 18- yard touchdown pass, capped a lengthy 10-play drive for Beckman, which took a 10-7 advantage.
It took the Tigers only two plays to answer the score when Reyes broke a 70-yard touchdown run, and they didn't look back after that.
Elsinore scored three times in the second half to secure the victory.
Brandon Payne added 73 yards on 11 carries for Elsinore, while Reyes hauled in three passes for 87 yards.
Elsinore quarterback Tim Jakell went 3 of 7 in the air for 87 yards.
Beckman was led by quarterback Dean Nagle who completed 21 of 35 passes for 264 yards, while Jake Groves led the Patriots rushing efforts with 47 yards on 7 carries.
