Playing in the rain Thursday night didn't seem to bother Joaquin Garcia. The Anaheim High School running back rushed for three touchdowns, caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt 69 yards for another touchdown to lead the Colonists to a 33-13 Orange League victory over Magnolia in Glover Stadium.
After a scoreless first quarter played in a steady drizzle, Garcia, who had 115 yards in 15 carries, opened the second quarter with a 35-yard touchdown run. Less than a minute later, after a Magnolia fumble, Garcia ran eight yards for another touchdown to give Anaheim (6-1, 2-0) a 14-0 lead.
Later in the quarter, Garcia caught an 18-yard touchdown pass from Robert Aldaz. He added a two-yard touchdown run and the punt return in the third quarter.
Both teams had trouble holding on to the ball. Magnolia (0-7, 0-2) fumbled eight times, losing the ball four times. Two of those turnovers led directly to Anaheim touchdowns. The Colonists lost two of seven fumbles.
