Mountain View’s Richie Estrada led the Mountain Lions to a 21-7 away victory over Canyon Del Oro High School on Friday night.

The junior running back managed two touchdowns on 23 carries and 178 yards of total offense.

Estrada’s first touchdown came about halfway through the first quarter. On a handoff from quarterback Cody Rochon, Estrada pushed his way through the Dorado defense and sped downfield for a 44-yard touchdown to put the Mountain Lions up 7-0.

Rochon and Estrada again teamed up to make another push downfield halfway through the third quarter. On the Dorados’ 12-yard line, it was this time Rochon who would find space, running the ball in and bringing the score to 14-0.

Rochon would end the game six of 10 passing for 46 yards with one touchdown carry.

The CDO offense struggled to find an answer for a tough Mountain View defense, which limited the Dorados on the ground as well as in the air.

With nine minutes remaining in the game, Estrada found an opening from the Dorado 21-yard line, and shrugged off several defenders to bring the game to 21-0.

But the Dorados weren’t going to allow a shutout.

Led by the offense of running back Isaac Chacon and quarterback Leo Khawam, the Dorados found some big gains to bring the ball to the Mountain View five-yard line on second down and goal, but a penalty was called against the Dorados and a subsequent quarterback sack pushed the Dorados to fourth down and 17.

Chants from the Dorado stands began ringing out. “We want one! We want one!”

In the very next play, the fans would get what they asked for.

Khawam found wide receiver Tommy Sawyer for a 17-yard touchdown pass in the corner end zone to send the crowd into eruption.

But with only four minutes remaining in the game, the Mountain View lead would prove insurmountable, and the game would end 21-7 in favor of the Mountain Lions.

The Dorados fall to 0-2 and will face Chavez at home on Sept. 7 at 7 p.m.

The Mountain Lions improve to 2-0 and face Desert View next Friday.
