Chaffey dominates in shoot out over Southwestern
CHULA VISTA—For the second time this season Chaffey's football team was involved in a game that had 100 points scored and the Panthers came out on top. The only difference on Saturday was the Panthers were in control throughout the entire 66-34 win at Southwestern. In the first game of the year Chaffey pulled out a 52-48 win in the last two minutes over Mt. San Antonio.
Six different Panthers scored touchdowns, led by three rushing touchdowns by Devon Hudspeth and two receiving touchdowns by Jeremiah Cockheran.
Before Chaffey (6-0, 4-0) got on offense, the Panthers scored a touchdown. Chaffey's Mike Costanzo recovered the ball in the end zone when the Jaguars punter tried to retrieve a bad snap, with 13:28 left in the first quarter.
The Panthers padded their lead to 14-0 as Andrae Perry ran through the middle of the Southwestern (2-4, 0-4) defense for a 55-yard touchdown.
"We ran a counter and I saw that the safety overshot the play, so I had clear sailing to the end zone," said Perry. "We ran the ball pretty good and our offensive line dominated the game."
Perry who led all backs with 170 yards on the ground said he was happy with the holes. He used his spin move three or four times during the game which caused the Jaguars linebackers or safeties to miss tackles.
Southwestern scored its first touchdown of the game as Jaguars quarterback Se'e Poumele hooked up with Tyrone Cannon on a 25-yard fade into the left corner of the end zone to cut the Panthers lead to 14-7.
Chaffey responded by scoring another touchdown two plays later. After Cockheran caught a 50-yard bomb from Panthers quarterback Jeff Disney, Hudspeth rambled in from 7 yards for a touchdown.
"We have the best offensive linemen in the state," said Perry. "I haven't seen any better."
Chaffey increased its lead to 28-7 with 10:51 left in the first half on a play-action pass as Disney rolled to his right and found tight end Nick King in the left corner of the end zone for a 25-yard scoring pass.
Zach Bussey's 29-yard field goal increased the Panthers lead to 31-7 with 3:43 left in the first half.
Poumele tossed his second 25-yard touchdown pass of the game, this time to Nick Paul to cut Chaffey's lead to 31-14 with 3:43 left in the second quarter.
Chaffey answered that score with another touchdown as Hudspeth swept left for a 6-yard touchdown to give the Panthers a 38-14 lead with 2:46 left in the first half.
"Last year we were in this same position (undefeated) and lost to Southwestern and then lost to Grossmont," said Perry. "We came into this game relaxed, but we also knew what we had to do. We worked really hard in practice and executed our offense in the game."
