Mustangs do 'a great job both running the football and throwing the football'

Oscar Limon threw four touchdown passes and Samuel Stephens ran for 153 yards and a pair of scores to lead Otay Ranch to a 48-21 win over host Lincoln in a nonleague game Friday.

The Mustangs (3-3) have a bye next week before their Metro Mesa League opener against Chula Vista in two weeks.

“I’m really happy,” Otay Ranch coach Lance Christensen said. “The offense really clicked tonight. They did a great job both running the football and throwing the football.”

Touchdown passes of 22 and 89 yards from Limon and his 10-yard TD run staked Otay Ranch to a 21-point lead midway through second quarter. The senior — who completed 10 of 14 passes for 243 yards in the game — threw two more scoring passes in the third quarter as the Mustangs pushed the lead to 41-7.

“We had a good week of practice, and that led to 48 points,” Limon said. “It wasn’t just me. I couldn’t do it without my O-line. It was the O-line and the wide receivers running good routes.”

Two of Limon’s TDs — one in each half — went to senior Adrian Rodriguez, who caught four passes for 156 yards.

The Hornets (2-4) lost their fourth straight. They also have a bye next week and one more nonleague game before opening their Eastern League schedule against Mira Mesa.

Junior Micah Edwards topped Lincoln with 133 yards rushing.
