San Diego's Daniel Thomas (8) celebrates his third quarter touchdown with George Gomez.

Morse running back Martell Irby rushed for 248 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Tigers pounded on the ground, rushing for 460 yards in their win at Brawley.

San Diego quarterback Quinn O’Connor completed 9 of 21 passes for 166 yards and 3 TDs. Cavers linebacker Eric Orfanos compiled 12 tackles and one quarterback hurry, plus he deflected a pass.

Sweetwater RB Marty Sesma rushed for 204 yards and 2 touchdowns on 38 carries to help the Red Devils pick up their second consecutive win.

Mar Vista’s Sebastian Burke had 2 rushing touchdowns and an 85-yard receiving touchdown.

San Diego Southwest RB Leonard Hoar rushed for 173 yards and 3 touchdowns on 24 carries.

Montgomery’s 48 points was more than the Aztecs have scored in their previous five games combined.

Roman Coe continues to bedevil Eastlake opponents. The speedy junior collected 108 yards on 15 carries, scoring 3 times against Chula Vista.

Otay Ranch QB Puka Stewart was 13 of 21 for 169 yards and a touchdown. Mustangs linebacker Sammy Paranada had three quarterback sacks.

Cathedral Catholic RB Ryan Kilpatrick rushed for 151 yards and scored 2 TDs.

The aptly named Rock Gonzalez has nine sacks this season for Olympian — at least one a game.

Scripps Ranch quarterback Daniel Cox threw for more than 300 yards and 3 TDs in the Falcons’ first win of the season. Keith Davis hauled in two TD catches for Scripps.

Madison sophomore QB Mario Alves completed 8 of 14 passes for 202 yards and 4 TDs. Warhawks receiver Daniel Stokes caught 2 passes for 135 yards and 2 TDs, plus threw a touchdown pass.

Backup QB Joey Tarango (154 yards passing) and backup RB Nathan Hart (102 yards rushing) helped Imperial beat Rancho Buena Vista. Hart also had an interception, a forced fumble and a sack.

Granite Hills quarterback Jake Siegfried rushed for 228 yards and 3 TDs. Tyler Gonzalez added 156 yards rushing for the Eagles.

Santana’s Colton Snipes tied a San Diego Section record with 4 blocked kicks — 2 FG and 2 PAT attempts — in the Sultans’ loss to Mar Vista.

Quarterback Thomas Fishburne threw for 268 yards and 4 TDs, booted a field goal and made an interception to lift Steele Canyon.

Thadeo Campbell had 3 interceptions and Jonathan Medina 220 rushing yards and 4 TDs to help Central to a 5-0 start.

Eduardo Valenzuela threw 5 TD passes for Vincent Memorial.

Cameron Jungers threw a pair of TD passes to Tyler Saikhon as El Centro Southwest moved to 5-0.

Helix’s Rashad Scott recorded his fifth interception and second pick-6 along with a 33-yard TD reception.

Oceanside had 29 rushing attempts for 299 yards and 4 TDs. Jared Santos ran 12 times for 136 yards and a 25-yard TD. Mikah Linnan had 7 rushes for 106 yards and TDs of 43 and 34 yards. QB Alex Miller completed 17 of 26 passes for 136 yards and a score.

Mater Dei Catholic QB Cameron Smith had TD strikes of 11 and 47 yards.

Two of the five Metro Mesa League teams will be particularly happy to start league play — and presumably an easier schedule. Bonita Vista, which has its bye as the final game of the regular season, has lost to No. 2-ranked Madison, No. 3 Helix and No. 4 San Marcos. The Barons somehow missed out on No. 1 Mission Hills. But then Mater Dei Catholic has faced Mission Hills, No. 6 Ramona and Oceanside. The only Metro Mesa team in the rankings is No. 10 Eastlake.

Last season, when Colin Kaepernick first demonstrated during the national anthem, there were a few scattered individual players who followed his lead at local high school football games. For anyone curious about possible demonstrations during the national anthem at Friday’s games, there were none at any of the 10 games covered by Union-Tribune correspondents.
