[La Puente] – Richard Munoz and Ryan Castro combined for 5 touchdowns in the San Gabriel Valley Punishers 53-18 victory over the Inland Empire Rams at Bishop Amat High School Monday Night. 

Munoz got it started for the Punishers on the first play of the game with a 65-yard touchdown run. On the next series Munoz found Castro from nine yards out to make it 14-0 midway through the first.

Rams running back Douglas Jones cut into the lead when he cut through the Punishers defense to make it 14-6 after a missed extra point.

Castro and Munoz struck again – Castro on a 33-yard run and Munoz on a 40-yard interception return making it 28-6.

Douglas got in the endzone again for the Rams making it 28-12.

Castro found pay dirt two more times on a 65-yard run and 69-yard interception return putting the Punishers up 41-12.

The Punishers Omar Villescas and Payton Clark also got in on the scoring each with a touchdown.

Douglas scored again for the Rams but it wasn’t nearly enough.

Munoz finished 8 of 13 for 124-yards and two touchdowns to go with three carries for 92-yards and a score. Castro had 140 total yards and two touchdowns. Both players had a pick six.

Douglas ended up with 185 total yards and all three Rams touchdowns.

    Can you guys at least do a follow up story on how kids who Are playing in high school can’t also play in youth leagues which is what this kid is doing and it’s not allowed by king league the youth league he is moonlighting in: its not fair to youth players who play by the rules . And I am sure La salle high school where he is playing now, wouldn’t like it either. He’s a great player who should focus on playing in high school and not trying to be a dude in youth football against the rules.

    @ Mr. Power: Junior All-American Football in the San Gabriel Valley dates back to at least the 1960’s. The Alhambra Thunderbirds occasionally played short games or exhibitions before AHS home games at Moor Field during the early 70’s.

    Why nothing for SGVJAAF? They only been sending to players to high school around here for at least 40 years probably more.

    It doesn’t matter that there is no high school football on a Monday night. Go out to a local school ( any school ) & do a feature on a team/player.
    From T. Peterson: Go ahead. You’re more than welcome to. I might even publish it. Personally I get off work too late for that. In the meantime we’ll keep covering this. It’s awesome! GO PUNISHERS!!

    Don’t waste your time going to Amat! We all know Amat doesn’t put out any talent. And Amat gets beat on when they play against competition. Amat loves to schedule sgv teams and beat them. But gets dominate by any school outside of sgv! Amat is a joke.

    Was there a Monday night high school game? We had a game and gave a little bit of pub. It didn’t interfere in any HS game. And I’m sure they wouldn’t cover us if it was a Friday night.

    Thanks for the love mid valley sports you got a lot of new readers here with the punisher fam.
    From T. Peterson: I think it’s awesome. I’m now a big Punishers fan. Let me know when the next one is!
