Each of Chino’s first 11 plays were runs to either running back Stanford or fullback Ryan Shawhan. The fifth play was the first of three Stanford touchdowns, a 14-yard run. The next six set up Chino’s unnecessary but effective passing game. The first of two Art Gracia touchdown passes, a beautiful 22-yard rainbow to Orlando Brazier gave the Cowboys a 14-0 lead. A Stanford 2-yard run in the final minute before the half gave the Cowboys (5-1 overall) a 21-0 lead at the break. Chino turned on the afterburners in the third quarter, scoring three touchdowns in the first 4“ minutes of the second half. Stanford scored on a 49-yard run, McFoy returned a punt 65 yards for a touchdown and McFoy caught a short pass from Gracia and turned that into an 88-yard touchdown. “We played very good defense. They’ve got a very good quarterback, and we got pressure on him,” Chino coach John Monger said. “Our offensive line played very well, too.” There wasn’t much to find fault with. Chino’s defense harried Diamond Bar quarterback Jeff Jansen all night long, limiting the Brahmas to 83 yards of total offense and three first downs. CHINO – Normally, when you are penalized only once and don’t turn the ball over, it’s going to be a pretty good night. That was not the case for Diamond Bar on Thursday night as an impenetrable Chino defense, and the explosive R.J. Stanford and Ryan McFoy combined for a 41-0 Chino victory in a Sierra League opener for both schools at Chino High School. center_img The final 19 minutes were inconsequential. “I thought they would give us more of a challenge,” said Stanford, who finished with 22 carries for 200 yards. “Coaches talked to us about hustle.” The hustle was enough for Chino to amass 374 yards of total offense. While the performance overall was impressive, Monger sees room for Stanford to improve. “He could’ve hit the hole a little bit harder,” Monger said. Chino stayed on an emotional high throughout. “We came out pumped up,” McFoy said. “I thought they’d be a lot tougher after what we saw on film.” Diamond Bar’s offense got little going, as the Jansen was sacked six times, and the Brahmas (3-2-1) had only 36 yards rushing outside of the sacks. Jansen finished the night completing 8-of-20 passes for 88 yards. Diamond Bar’s best chance to score came in the first half, when Jonathon Amaya returned a kickoff 63 yards to the Chino 36. But the Brahmas couldn’t get a first down, and Isaiah Washington came up three yards short of a first down on a fourth-and-5 fake punt. “We have no excuse,” Diamond Bar coach Nick Cuccia said. “I don’t know how, but we came out flat. I think we were intimidated.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img
