SAN DIEGO - From the first play of their home game against the Bishop Badgers Friday night, the San Diego Vaqueros were in complete control as they scored on every drive for a 60-7 win to improve their overall record to 6-1.
"I tell you what, we have been running on four cylinders," said San Diego head coach Bo Ochoa. "One thing I said before the game is 'Let's crank it up to eight cylinders' and that's the result of running on all gears."
The Vaqueros put some points on the scoreboard early with a 50-yard touchdown run by Ryan Guerrero. After a successful point-after kick, San Diego led, 7-0 with 11:40 left in the first quarter. San Diego scored again on their next possession on a one-yard touchdown by Guerrero following a big 57-yard run which put the Vaqueros next to the end zone.
Bishop finally lit up their side of the scoreboard with a 40-yard run with 7:40 left in the quarter, but San Diego answered right back on the kickoff with Guerrero returning the ball 74 yards for his third touchdown of the quarter to put his team up, 21-7.
After the Badgers turned the ball over on downs, the Vaqueros had a 60-yard run by L.T. Alaniz called back after a holding penalty was called against San Diego. However, the Vaqueros were still able to punch it in with a 45-yard run by Guerrero at the start of the second quarter.
San Diego was unsuccessful on the two-point conversion, but held a sizeable lead, 27-7.
On their next possession, San Diego found the end zone again with a 10-yard touchdown run by Ben Fuentes. The Vaqueros scored again on a 69-yard punt return by Guerrero after putting the Badgers in a fourth-and-34 situation.
San Diego's final score of the half came with 22 seconds left on a 43-yard run by Joe Gallegos. At halftime, the Vaqueros led, 47-7.
In the third quarter, Gallegos looked like he had a 49-yard touchdown run, but another holding penalty against the Vaqueros erased the run. A couple of plays later, Guerrero entered the end zone for his sixth and final touchdown of the game on a 50-yard run with 4:38 left.
San Diego's final touchdown was on a 26-yard run by Ben Fuentes with 2:38 left in the game. After the successful PAT, the Vaqueros went on to win the game, 60-7.
