San Marcos Run Over by Hueneme

San Marcos found some playmakers on offense, but the Royals couldn't contain Hueneme's rushing attack and dropped a 39-20 decision in a non-league football game in Oxnard.

Ashkan Allen rushed for 76 yards and a touchdown and Mason Zimmerman caught 4 passes for 77 yards and score for the Royals (0-4).

Trailing 19-7, San Marcos got back in the game when Luis Mesino returned the kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown to cut the lead to 19-14.

Hueneme regained control behind the running of Alex Tili and Maneko Aupiu. Tili scored on 22-yard run with five minutes left in the game to give the Vikings some breathing room.

After San Marcos went four-and-out at its 33, Hueneme handed the ball off to Tili and he sprinted 33 yards for a 32-14 advantate. Tili finished with 160 yards on 22 carries and returned a fumble on defense for a touchdown.

Aupiu rushed for 68 yards on seven carries and scored on a 15-yard run.  He also caught five passes for 79 yards, including the first score of the game on a 36-yard reception.

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!
