SANTEE – Don’t come unprepared to face the Santana Sultans right now.

After a brief moment of success at the start of the game Friday night, the poor San Diego Cavers never had a chance.

Santana won its third-straight game, beating those three knockeout opponents by a 143-8 count, including a 42-0 whitewash of the Cavers at Santee Community Stadium.

JOSH OEDEWALDT threw three touchdowns and BOBBY WALLACE continued to rewrite the Sultans record book with 97 more yards to his career total, along with three more scores, moving closer to school records in both major categories.

The Cavers first drive took them inside the Santana 5 and had the hosts looking like they were on their collective heels.

But the Sultans came up with an early red zone stop and were never headed after that. The Sultans scored a pair of touchdowns in each of the first three quarters.

Oedewaldt was super efficient once again, going 11-for-13 with 223 yards.

Oedewaldt completed TD passes to ANDERS TOLHURST, AIDEN RASMUSSONand BROCK ELLIS.

Tolhurst had four catches for 81 yards, Rasmussen had five recepts for 75 yards and Ellis had two grabs for 71 yards.

Senior SPENCER GULIHUR led the Santana defensive effort with 10 tackles, while fellow senior DOMINIC DEHOYOS had eight stops.

Junior LANDON WOOD make seven tackles and had an interception for Santana, while NOAH JACKSON also had a pick for the Sultans.

Santana’s defense limited San Diego running back Raiden Hunter to 54 yards before he left the game in the second quarter with an apparent ankle injury.

Santana was also able to contain San Diego’s Indae Gammon, who had just 19 yards on the ground.

TIMMY TISCHER converted all six of his point-after-touchdown boots.
