Boston's 325-yard game propels Buena Park past Fullerton


BUENA PARK - Deven Boston had big run after big run on his way to a 325-yard, five-touchdown rushing night for Buena Park.

But it was his six-carry drive at the end of the first half that all but clinched the game for Buena Park as it defeated Fullerton, 40-16, on Friday night in a Freeway League game.

The Coyotes (6-4, 2-3) led, 21-3, late in the first half before the Indians (2-8, 1-4) put together a drive that potentially could have gotten them back into the game just before halftime.



On a fourth-and-2 the Buena Park defense stopped Damani Roberts for no gain to take over on downs with 2:20 left in the second quarter.

The Coyotes took over at their 45-yard line. Boston ran his own version of the hurry-up offense, carrying the ball six consecutive times before finishing off the sequence with a 5-yard touchdown run with 27 seconds left.

The score pushed the Coyotes’ lead to 27-3, and the runs pushed Boston’s yardage total to 184 and his touchdown total to three at halftime.

Boston didn’t take long to get going in the second half. On the second Coyotes possession, and after having a 47-yard touchdown run called back because of a holding penalty, Boston ran 30 yards for a TD.

And he wasn’t finished. In the fourth quarter, Boston broke off a 68-yard run after the Coyotes had taken over at their 20-yard line.

Boston then finished the drive - and his night - with his fifth touchdown, a 4-yard jaunt.

Fullerton scored on the first drive of the second half when quarterback Scott Lloyd connected with Marquis Cerillo on a 9-yard scoring pass on a fourth-and-goal play. But the Fullerton offense largely struggled, as Buena Park sacked Lloyd four times and intercepted him twice.
