Vikings easily handle overmatched Aztecs on opening night for preps

Even after a scoreless first quarter riddled with penalties and turnovers, visiting La Jolla managed to dominate an overwhelmed Montgomery squad 43-0 in the opening weekend of the high school football season on Friday.

The Vikings (1-0) busted out in the second quarter for 24 points, led by senior running back Daniel McColl, whose 26-yard touchdown run sparked a stalling La Jolla offense.

McColl would score again later in the second quarter, this time through the air with a 9-yard touchdown catch from senior quarterback Cole Dimich.

Dimich was solid overall, orchestrating one touchdown drive after another. He was 9 of 19 for 92 yards and one TD, while chipping in a rushing touchdown of his own. He also helped settle down an offense that sputtered for much of the first quarter.

Vikings running back Alex Dockery dominated with three touchdowns on the ground.

Montgomery (0-1) was unable to get anything going, unable to capitalize on a few early Vikings turnovers, including a fumble and interception. The Aztecs’ offense looked out of synch for most of the game, struggling occasionally to get plays in on time.

When Aztecs senior quarterback Anthony Parra wasn’t scrambling, he was struggled to hit receivers who were unable to get open themselves. He was 3 of 8 in the first half for just 13 yards.
