Behind three first half touchdowns by Alex Cecchi, Arroyo Grande rolled Nipomo on Friday night in Nipomo.
Cecchi had 166 total yards (55 rushing, 111 receiving), two rushing touchdowns and a 75 -yard bomb from quarterback Sawyer May as the Eagles moved to 5-1 on the season.
Next best player: Sawyer May once again had a proficient night behind center. May finished the game 8 of 15 for 201 yards and a touchdown. He also added a 9-yard touchdown run to seal the game. Nipomo quarterback Gavin Hall finished 4 of 9 for 61 yards.
New look Nipomo: The Titans began the game with Hall on the bench, opting instead to experiment with a "wildcat" formation. Tony Navarro and J.J. Rameriez each took snaps in the first two series, with limited success, before Hall reentered the game on the third offensive series of the game. Coach Tony Dodge said he's not sure if the Titans will continue to use the wildcat or go back to its regular offense.

Run stopper: Arroyo Grande coach Tom Goossen gave credit to linebacker Sam Ness for holding the Nipomo run game in check most of the night. Ness had two tackles for loss in the game, including one play where he flew into the backfield just as Hall handed the ball off. Nipomo had just 13 yards rushing on 10 carries in the second half.
What's next: Both teams open up league play next week. Nipomo (2-4) begins Northern League play against Morro Bay, and Arroyo Grande takes on Paso Robles.
