UNIVERSITY CITY – The University City Centurions parlayed a game-opening kickoff return into a victory over key sectional division rival Monte Vista here Friday night.

In a contest played between two of the expected top two teams in Division 4, the Centurions’ Marcel Patterson, who had the 88-yard kickoff return to start things off, had three touchdowns of the night.

University City also added a first-quarter touchdown pass to put the run-oriented Monarchs in a two-score hole.

Monte Vista had promised more passing this season, but UC intercepted three passes on this night.

Senior EMMANUAL MENDEZ and junior MARCO BARRAGAN broke open the holes for a 55-yard run by McClendon, which set up one of Monte Vista’s scores.

McClendon scored a touchdown in the third quarter.

Monte Vista hosts Patrick Henry (0-2) next week.

The Braves were poised for a late score in the first half, but the Komets came up with a goal-line stop.

“In the fourth quarter we gassed out,” El Cajon Valley coach PARRIS PISIONA said. “We couldn’t get our defense off the field and couldn’t maintain any drives. Injuries once again decimated us.”
