m Second victory of the season was an all around team effort BY DAVID ZELLER FOR THE ISLANDER The Avalon Lancer football team traveled to Laverne Lutheran last Saturday and came home with a 40-32 victory. The team really stepped up in its first league game. Quarterback Jose Gomez led the Lancer offense and was a great leader throughout a game that had many ups and downs. Jason Campos had another great game running the ball, rush- ing for over 130 yards on the day while his partner, at fullback, DeAngelo Reyes also grinded out valuable yards keeping Laverne on their heels and dragging would-be tacklers up the field. Beto Martinez played a fantas- tic game at cornerback. He was asked to shut down the Laverne primary receiver, and he stepped- up and did a great job. He iced the victory at the end of the game coming up with a game clinching interception right when the team needed it. Senior Danny Mulgado played his best game of the year at nose tackle. Laverne was down by two pos- sessions down near the end of the game and they were in a passing situation when Mulgado began and the team's best game of the season thus far. Alex Lira had a great game at center, once again, and Diego Rios commanded the middle of the line on defense and offense. Rios does a com- manding job of lead blocking for the squad's running backs and he had his motor running all game. Jose Silva and Cristo Hernandez both played huge parts in the victory. Cristo hauled in a 40 yard pass early in the game that led to a Lancer touch- down and he made things difficult for the Laverne offense by closing down the outside at defensive end.
