USD TOREROS DODGE MUSTANGS, TAME PRINCETON TIGERS; HORIZON ALUM DARREN CARRINGTON HELPS OREGON DUCKS START 3-0

The Rob Stone Scouting Report

Quarterback Keith Williams proved to be a dynamic dual threat on offense in making his first career start for the University of San Diego as USD dodged the Western New Mexico Mustangs 23-17 in a non-conference game at Torero Stadium on Sept. 6.

Williams showed a strong arm for USD, tossing a pass completion to wide receiver Brandon White (5 catches, 122 yards) that went for a 74-yard touchdown reception on the Toreros third play from scrimmage.

That gave USD an early 6-0 edge with 13:34 left in the first period.

Once again, Williams demonstrated an ability to get the ball down the field when he sent the pigskin whistling into the arms of Torero wide receiver Reggie Bell (5 catches, 78 yards) for a 61-yard touchdown pass.

That extended the USD advantage to 13-3 with 12:42 remaining in the second quarter.

A 20-yard field goal by kicker David Last with 4:16 left in the second period made the score 16-3 in favor of the Toreros as the two teams headed into the locker room at halftime.

After the intermission, it was more of the same as running back Jonah Hodges exhibited electric speed on an 11-yard touchdown run.

That put the Toreros up 23-3 with 10:16 remaining in the third quarter and pretty much sealed  the win for USD despite two face-saving fourth quarter touchdowns by Western New Mexico.

Williams completed 12 out of 25 passes for 203 yards and robustly ran the ball 8 times for a career-high 59 yards.

Trailing again 28-14 in the fourth quarter, a 33-yard catch and run by Madyun and a 1-yard touchdown run and 2-point conversion by Coles created a 29-28 cushion for Madison.

Unfortunately for the Warhawks, a 6-yard touchdown run by Francoise Sims II would clinch the triumph for St. Augustine.
