Green Chargers bounce back
The Huntington Beach Pee Wee Green Chargers bounced back from an season-opening defeat to earn their first win in the 2011 Pop Warner Football campaign, a 22-0 shutout against the host San Clemente Black Tritons.
Sherman Thomas started the scoring with a 65-yard punt return early in the second quarter. Quarterback Griffin O'Connor threw two touchdown passes to Shaun Colamonico to complete the scoring. O'Connor also completed key passes to Thomas, Chase Ault and Nolan Funke. The Chargers' running game was led by Karson Ayres, Aaron Jones and Cameron Gonzales.
Defensively, the Chargers shut down the Tritons' run game and recorded a safety. Jonathan Morieda, Dylan Alcantara and Adrian Perez plugged up the middle and the outside was contained by ends Zachary Edsell and Dacorian Turner.
