East Takes Control Down the 605

Shaun Colamonico gets a score for the East.

By Tim  Peterson

(Whittier) – The East pulled away with two third quarter touchdowns and went on to beat the West 24-3 Saturday night in the 605 All-Star Classic at Dick Torres Stadium at Pioneer High.

The East led 10-3 at half before a three-yard touchdown run by Shaun Colamonico of Edison to cap a 60-yard drive with 3:38 left in the third made it 17-3. On the next possession Robert Corner III of Buena Park intercepted John Buska and the East were  business again at the West 29. Three plays later La Habra’s Pervis Henderson hauled in a 35-yard strike from Buena Park’s James Rafkin and just like that it was 24-3 East at the end of three.

The East D corrals 250+ pounds of the West’s Baby Satuala!

The West had its chances. In the fourth quarter the West recovered a fumble and took over at the East 13-yard line. But despite an offsides penalty on the East, the West still failed to cash in and was stopped on fourth down.

After a scoreless first quarter, the East got on the board first early in the second quarter on a 46-yard field goal by Harrison Avila of Laguna Hills. The West tied it three minutes later on a 47-yard boot by Clay D’Amico of Valley Christian. D’Amico’s kick sailed through with plenty of room to spare.

The East took the lead for good with just over three minutes left in the first half when Westminster’s Josh Avila (no relation) scored on a 15-yard TD scamper. Avila’s touchdown came on the first play after a shanked punt set up the East at the West 15.

The East didn’t put up big offensive numbers as Rafkin and La Mirada’s Tristan Meyer combined to throw for 102 yards. The East had 151 yards on the ground.

St. Anthony’s John Buska V threw for 95 yards and rushed for 55 for the West, but he was hurt by two picks.

It was the 50th anniversary of the 605 All-Star Classic.

    Yes, the numbers are accurate, ER hasn’t had these kind of numbers in maybe 20 years. Still a huge freshmen class and a few transfers on the way.. The best is yet to come! I’m ready!!!!

    Not a fan of big coaching staffs but if the max preps roster numbers are correct the HC needs additional help.

    Nope. Medrano is handling every aspect of every offensive play. Rumors of Joe calling it are unfounded…

    Silly people. Medrano did not leave Bonita only to let someone else have the fun of calling the offense. He is a hands on energetic young coach. The only power he shares is letting Setlich call defense but even then he gets involved. That is how it should be. The buck stops with the HC.

    Not true. He was merely supervising and correting both offenses.

    Was at the El Rancho spring game. Rumor floating around is that Medrano is handing the play calling over to his assistants. Does anyone know if this is true?

    To bad real football is played with lineman and as we all know, cathedral has always had horrible lineman. So enjoy it while you can. Real teams are preparing for real football.
