Mariners swamp Warriors
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
Moreau Catholic Mariners won their first Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) contest this season by beating the Mission San Jose Warriors 42-6 on Saturday, November 2nd.The Mariners began to dismantle the Warriors early to set up a great day for Mariner Tim Hilton. The offense went to work and opened a huge hole in the defense on the second play of the game. Hilton took advantage, moving the ball 41 yards for his first touchdown of the day. He followed that with 140 yards running and three touchdowns.
As the Mariner offensive display continued, Jullen Ison made some impressive moves of his own to add a 41-yard touchdown run. Hilton, with a great show of speed, ran the ball 48 yards to add another touchdown, making the score 21-0. Adding to his talents as a runner, Hilton showed that he can also be a weapon as a receiver; he took a swing pass from Mariner Querterback Kucas O'Rourke for 56 yards and a touchdown.
Mariner defense was at their best as they held the Warriors to just 63 yards on the ground. One highlight for the Warriors was when Ben Torrez carried the ball 85 yards for a touchdown with just 55 seconds left in the game.
