CHS football wins again, 43-29, over Montclair
Claremont High School advanced its record to 4-1 with a 43-29 away victory over Montclair on Friday.
Montclair owned the first quarter scoring nine points to Claremont’s zero, however in the second quarter the Pack came alive with 29 points to the Cavilers six. Both teams managed to get two more touchdowns in the second half of the game which ensured the Claremont victory.
Junior Ricky Murillo lead the Pack’s offense at quarterback with 15 completions for 244 yards and two touchdowns. He also had one rushing touchdown and, unfortunately threw one interception.
Junior Alex Sotolongo caught five passes for 170 yards, including one 75 yard play, and two touchdowns earning the player of the game award from the coaches.
Claremont’s rushing game came alive for the first time this season with an impressive 252 yards and four touchdowns. That outcome is largely due to a five star performance from senior Logan Moran who had 18 carries for 174 yards and three touchdowns. At the same time the Pack totally shut down Montclair’s running game handing senior quarterback Adrian Vargas a negative 26 yard stat. Otherwise the teams had fairly equal offensive numbers, including 496 total yards for Claremont and 411 for Montclair.
Hopefully the winning record will translate into some confidence, and big plays for the Wolfpack’s Palomares League opener against Ayala on Friday at CHS.
