Royals roll to their fourth straight win

San Marcos showed Friday it can score touchdowns in several ways.

The Royals scored on a punt return, power runs, pass plays and a fumble recovery in the end zone, and rolled to a 49-9 non-league win over Hueneme for their fourth straight victory.

Running back Esteban Alfaro rushed for 130 yards on 10 carries and scored one touchdown during a 28-point second quarter for the Royals, who led 42-9 at halftime.

Josh Foley scored on a 1-yard run midway through the first quarter and Tony Zuniga followed a minute later with a 69-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Hueneme showed some life and stunned San Marcos with a 61-yard touchdown pass from Adan Salas to Sylas Mottley to make it 14-6. The Vikings added a 30-yard field goal early in the second quarter.

San Marcos then took over the game. Quarterback Wesley Ghan-Gibson fired touchdown passes of 21 and 10 yards to Justin “Coop” Pugh, Alfaro had a 1-yard run and Joe Estrada recovered a Hueneme punt snap in the end zone for a defensive touchdown.

“We finally got things going in the second quarter,” said San Marcos coach Anthony Linebaugh

Inri Cortez completed the scoring for the Royals with a 26-yard run in the third quarter.

“We had a lot of different contributors today and that’s good,” said Linebaugh.

Ghan-Gibson had an efficient night throwing the football, completing 6 of 8 for 95 yards and two scores.
