November 04, 2000|STEVE HISERMAN

Glenn Oheari gave his team a jump start, then kicked it into high gear in leading San Bernardino Aquinas to a 60-14 victory over Capistrano Valley Christian in a nonleague game Friday night at Laguna Beach High.

Oheari scored on a 59-yard run on the Falcons' second play from scrimmage, and he was almost literally unstoppable from that point on, finishing with 257 yards and three touchdowns in nine carries. He also made three receptions for 76 yards and scored on a 28-yard pass play.

Oheari rushed for 187 yards in the first half, then broke loose on a sweep down the right sideline for a 65-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage in the second half.

Even with a running clock in the second half, Aquinas (7-2-1) had 619 yards in offense--450 in 31 carries by five running backs--compared to Capistrano Valley Christian's 190.

Joe Gutierrez, Aquinas' starting quarterback, completed all five of his passes for 109 yards.

Aquinas scored on its first two second-half possessions, the second on a 38-yard run by Obi Amajoyi.

Amajoyi also scored on a 12-yard pass from Ricson Dakanay in the second quarter, giving the Falcons a 47-14 halftime advantage.

Capistrano Valley Christian (6-3) was behind 41-0 before it scored twice in the second quarter. Jamie Bray, who led the Eagles in rushing with 62 yards in 11 carries, scored on a 25-yard run.

The Eagles other touchdown came on a 47-yard pass play from Jason Ward to Bob Jansen. Ward completed eight of 25 passes for 119 yards with two interceptions.
