Carter does it all in CdM victory over University
NEWPORT BEACH - As is typical for a football game featuring Corona del Mar, senior quarterback Cayman Carter was the main attraction.
Carter compiled 83 rushing yards, 135 passing yards and four touchdowns as the Sea Kings defeated University, 40-20, in a Pacific Coast League matchup Friday night at Newport Harbor High.
"He (Carter) can kind of do it all," Corona del Mar coach Scott Meyer said. "Most of this season, he's done a lot of damage with his legs, but he can throw it as well."
Those in attendance caught a glimpse of how potent of a dual-threat Carter can be as he connected with top target Troy Reese for two touchdowns through the air — one for 15 yards, and the other for 10, and rushed for two touchdowns.
Corona del Mar (4-2, 1-0 Pacific Coast League) was also the beneficiary of key contributions from running back Kai Wilson.
The senior rushed for 130 yards on 14 carries, including one touchdown.
Corona del Mar got on the scoreboard first, as Wilson punched in a 2-yard touchdown on the Sea Kings' first drive of the game.
"On that opening drive, we were able to drive right down (the field)," Meyer said. "Cayman had some big runs, Kai (Wilson) had some big runs. It was nice to see our running game going so well."
Corona del Mar took a commanding 26-7 lead into halftime behind the arm of Carter and the legs of Wilson.
University (2-3-1, 0-1 Pacific Coast League) scored on its first possession of the second half on a 30-yard touchdown pass from Connor Martin to Keyvan Aminzadeh.
