Verdugo Hills 32, Hollywood 20--After being benched in the first half for disciplinary reasons, Henry Davis ran for 140 yards and four touchdowns at Hollywood (0-10, 0-5).

Davis ran 50 yards in his first carry and for one yard and a touchdown four plays later for a 14-7 lead in the third quarter.

Hollywood's ensuing drive lasted one play, with Neil Gossard intercepting a pass by Chris Colon at the Sheiks' 45.

Davis capped the 11-play drive with a four-yard touchdown run. Sophomore Michael Tinker kept the drive alive by completing a seven-yard pass to John Tirres on fourth and four from the Hollywood 23.

Tinker completed 12 of 16 passes for 159 yards and one touchdown, a 32-yard pass play to Kevin Baird on the first possession for Verdugo Hills (4-6, 2-3).

It marked only the third time this season Verdugo Hills scored in double figures.

Verdugo Hills played without standout linebacker Michael Porter because of disciplinary reasons.


Monroe 50, Van Nuys 14--Running back Tyrone Burwell rushed for two touchdowns and quarterback Diego Barba threw for three to lead the Vikings at Van Nuys.

Van Nuys (1-9, 0-5) took an 8-6 lead with 29 seconds to play in the first quarter on Jose Zapata's one-yard run and Yesel Manrique's two-point conversion run.

Barba threw a 68-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Phillips and a 49-yard touchdown toss to Steven Beltran for a 21-8 lead with 9:19 to go in the first half.

Barba's final touchdown pass was a 15-yard throw to Beltran, who caught three passes for 74 yards.

Beltran, normally the starting quarterback, was penalized for excessive celebration and taunting, and was ejected with 1:11 to play.

Barba, a senior, completed five of seven passes for 137 yards and three touchdowns.
