LA VERNE, — Their streaks continued, but only one team was celebrating. The Bonita High School football team picked up its sixth straight win of the season in a victory over Walnut High, which was handed its fourth straight loss. At the core of the Bearcats’ victory was their defense, which not only shut out the Mustangs, but came up with several big plays. Sean Vasquez led the way with a pair of fumble recoveries. One set up a Bonita field goal and the other was returned 98 yards by Vasquez for a touchdown. Walnut responded quickly on the ensuing drive when Ernest Quiocho ran 39 yards to the Bonita 27. Nick Gallardo added a 23-yard run to get to the Bonita 4. The ball was then moved forward 2 yards when the Bearcats were called offsides. That was as close to scoring as the Mustangs would get. On third-and-goal from the 2, Bonita’s Pablo Garay stripped Quiocho of the ball, which Vasquez recovered and returned for a touchdown. — Aaron Ellis center_img Bonita scored on its first drive, which was sparked by a series of completions by quarterback Curtis Gold, including a 29-yard pass to Mike Bentz and 12-yard inside screen to Mike McDonald that stopped at the Walnut 1. Gold scored the touchdown on a keeper for the 7-0 lead. The Bearcats went three-and-out on their next possession, but Walnut’s Michael Vance touched the ball on a bad bounce and Vasquez came up with the recovery at the Mustangs 19. Unable to move the football, Bonita settled for a 35-yard field goal. last_img read more
