Saddleback football is back on track after its 49- 20 victory at Victor Valley College, this past Saturday afternoon.

The Gauchos are 2-1. Quarterback Sean Reilly, made a 1-yard plunge in the latter half of the first quarter.

Early into the second quarter, Rodney Woodland returned an 88-yard punt for another successful touchdown.

Despite the Ram’s attempt to get back in the game, the Gauchos were still ahead at the end of the first half, 21-13.

During the second half, Saddleback completed four consecutive touchdowns. Woodland had a 45-yard run with Reilly throwing three additional passes for touchdowns. Reilly completed 17 of his 26 attempts, for 204 yards. Woodland gained 210 all-purpose yards, coming through with a total of three touchdowns for Saddleback.

“We played as a team,” said Travis Nakamura. “Everybody stayed focused…the loss gave us the energy to making our record better.”

This upcoming Saturday, Saddleback will play at Cerritos College at 6 p.m.
