Mike Cole rushed for five touchdowns Thursday night to lead Los Amigos High School to a 47-0 season-opening victory over Los Amigos at Garden Grove High School.
Cole, a 5-foot 10-inch, 180-pound senior fullback, scored four times in the first half and once in the fourth quarter on runs of 1, 13, 1, 1 and 3 yards. Los Alamitos' other two touchdowns also came on runs.
"I told Mike that he had the kind of night that he's probably dreamed about for the past 10 years by scoring five TDs," Los Alamitos Coach John Barnes said.
"Whenever we get close to the goal line we don't do anything fancy--we just run up behind the big guys in our line and it happened that Mike got the ball this time."
