Prep Football Roundup: San Luis Obispo avenges loss to Santa Barbara

The San Luis Obispo High football team got a measure of revenge in beating Santa Barbara 21-6 on Friday in a nonleague game in San Luis Obispo.

The Tigers (2-2), who gave up a Santa Barbara County-record 574 passing yards to the Dons last year, picked off three passes and allowed just 130 total yards of offense this time around.

San Luis Obispo running back Nate Nunno rushed for 97 yards on 17 carries, and quarterback Dylan Candaele threw for one touchdown and had scoring runs of 5 and 39 yards.

Jake Lacy opened the scoring with a 34-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter.

San Luis Obispo’s Josh James had two interceptions, and teammate Thomas Lee added another pick as the Dons would not score until the fourth quarter, already trailing by three touchdowns.

Atascadero 29, Hueneme 21

Adam Lopez rushed for 167 yards on 29 carries for the Greyhounds (4-1).

Lopez had his second straight strong game taking over for the injured Sterling Bullard. Last week, Lopez ran for 143 yards on 19 carries in a win over Redwood.

Brent Poulin led the Greyhounds with two touchdowns.

All 21 Hueneme points came in the second half.

“We had a lot of guys injured and we moved up some replacements to give them some game time,” Atascadero coach Vic Cooper said. “This was a tough-fought game in playoff-type atmosphere. Hueneme is a pretty good team and I’m pretty happy to get out of here with a win.”

Linfield Christian 33, Mission Prep 13

Mission Prep’s Kevin Laird had a 93-yard punt return in the first quarter for a touchdown to get the Royals (2-3) a quick lead over Linfield Christian (4-0).

Linfield Christian’s Austin Maranville scored on touchdown runs of 6, 21 and 69 yards after that to turn things around.

Patrick Foran had a 56-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter for Mission Prep.

Jedd Hasay was 8 of 29 passing for the Royals for 59 yards.
