The infamous streak involving Orange County's biggest rivals remains intact.

Senior running back Jaron Hytche rushed for 199 yards and had two touchdowns as Santa Ana Mater Dei (4-2, 1-0) extended its unbeaten streak against Anaheim Servite (3-3, 0-1) to 20 games with a 42-21 victory in front of a crowd of about 10,000 at Cal State Fullerton on Friday night.

Mater Dei dominated the second half, holding Servite to 57 total offensive yards in the final 24 minutes. The Monarchs then cushioned their lead with a couple of touchdown runs by Jordan Allen, who finished with 55 yards and three touchdowns on the night.

Mater Dei quarterback Matt Barkley completed 21 of 25 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns.

Servite's Cody Fajardo connected on 14 of 23 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown even though he was pressured most of the night by Mater Dei's swarming pass rush. Greg Portis finished with 155 yards and two touchdowns in 21 carries.

Christian Maldonado blocked a Servite field-goal attempt in the first quarter and recovered a second-half fumble that essentially ended the Friars' comeback hopes.

Donald Jarrin's 29-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter nudged host San Pedro (6-0, 1-0 league) to a 6-5 victory over Carson in a L.A. City Marine League opener.

The Colts (2-4, 0-1) had taken a 5-3 lead with 4:04 left in the third quarter after downing a punt at the San Pedro one-yard line and tackling Pirates running back Cristian Farrow in the end zone for a safety on the next play.

But quarterback Barry Heads completed all three of his passes for 49 yards on San Pedro's next drive to set up Jarrin's second field goal. He also kicked a 36-yard field goal in the second quarter.

Quarterback Daniel Torres completed 17 of 37 passes for 190 yards for Carson, which lost three of its five fumbles.

"Even with the turnovers, we had plenty of chances to win the game," Carson Coach Michael Christensen said. "We just made too many mistakes."
