Lompoc’s Firepower Too Much for San Marcos

Lompoc played at another level and buried San Marcos, 72-14, in a non-league football game at Huyck Stadium on Friday night.

The 3-0 Braves, ranked second in Division 3 of the CIF-Southern Section, led 58-7 at halftime. Toa Taua, the highly recruited running back, rushed for 175 yards and three touchdowns on just three carries. His longest run was 65 yards.

"All credit to them,” San Marcos coach Jason Fowle told reporters after the game. “They’re a great team. “It’s just another level. It’s just another level that hopefully we can work up to that some day.”

The Royals got a good game from running back Tommy Schaeffer. He had a 62-yard run to the Lompoc 12 and then threw a 17-yard touchdown pass out of the Wildcat formation to Andrew Aragon to get San Marcos on the board. Steven Corona kicked the PAT.

Schaeffer rushed for 80 yards on 16 carries and caught a pass for 11 yards.

"He made some nice runs, he’s a great player, he’s a leader for us. I can’t say enough positive things about Tommy,” Fowle told reporters

The Royals (1-2) scored again in the fourth quarter when sophomore quarterback Ben Partee hit Paul Ingram for a 47-yard TD.

Partee and Anthony Simentales played quarterback in place of the injured Jacob Villarreal, who is recovering from surgery on a fractured left elbow.

“I’m pleased with the way that Ben Partee our sophomore quarterback and Anthony Simentales stepped up and did the best they could do,” Fowle said. “We have a bright future at that position and we’re going to move forward and hopefully get better.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
