Southwestern Is On Track So Far

October 16, 1986|STEVE KRESAL

Southwestern, one of the preseason Mission Conference favorites, is on schedule thus far.

The Apaches are tied for first place with Riverside, which upset Saddleback, 21-16, Saturday. Southwestern's victory ended the Gauchos' 49-game home winning streak.

Southwestern plays Rancho Santiago this week at home. The Dons opened the season with two victories but lost to Riverside, 31-28, two weeks ago when a last-second 44-yard field-goal attempt went wide.

San Diego Mesa beat Rancho Santiago, 31-19, last week. Mesa quarterback Jeff Sturch was 23 for 37 for 309 yards and 2 touchdowns.

San Diego Mesa is in the unenviable position of playing Saddleback Saturday.

San Diego City and Citrus, the only two teams yet to win in conference, also play Saturday.
