NOGALES 58, WORKMAN 0
LA PUENTE — Nogales High School dominated the lines of scrimmage and cruised to a 58-0 win over Workman in a game played at La Puente High on Thursday night.
The Nobles (7-1, 2-1) took over sole possession of second place in the Montview League football standings, half game behind first-place Duarte.
Quarterback Matt Olguin led the Nobles offense, completing 14 of 16 passes for 197 yards and five touchdowns, all in the first half.
Olguin threw three touchdown passes to James Gray and a pair to Larenzo Williams. Andrew Carrazco ran for another TD in the first half.
Williams intercepted a pass in the second half and returned it 60 yards for a score. It was his third interception of the season.
The Nobles offensive line of Chris Espinoza, Christian Flores, Leo Gonzalez and brothers Jonathon and Juan Guardado gave Olguin time to throw and opened holes for Gray and Carrazco to pile up 297 yards of offense in the first half while holding the Lobos (3-5, 1-2) to just 40 yards of offense.
Nogales coach Richard Salazar: “We just focused on making our blocks on offense. Williams and Gray are our top guys and are making the plays we expect of them.”
Nogales’ Matt Olguin: “Our offensive line did most of the work. They allowed us to open up our offense. All my love goes to my offensive line. Without them all these scores wouldn’t be possible.”
Nogales’ Larenzo Williams: “Matt took his time and threw the ball perfectly. On that pick I just wanted to help the defense. I could read the guards and tackles and knew it was a pass and it came to my side.”
