Hueneme 33, Rio Mesa 20--Donald Thompson ran for four touchdowns and 125 yards in 23 carries to lift Hueneme (2-4) in a league opener at Hueneme.

After forcing a punt, Hueneme drove 80 yards in nine running plays and scored on Thompson's final touchdown, a 12-yard run with a minute left. Hueneme's Tiloli Tuitama blocked two second-quarter punts that led to Thompson's first two touchdowns.
