SAN DIEGO – The Mesa College Olympians stunned visiting Golden West College, 27-21, on Saturday evening, giving new head coach GARY WATKINS his first victory in just his second game.

Dominic McManus (Ramona High) caught three touchdown passes in the first half from freshman quarterback Jake Dunninway, as Mesa led 21-7 at halftime.

Dunninway, getting the start with sophomore Trey Cox sidelined, threw for 224 yards on the evening.

“The boys responded with a higher level of focus last week in practice,” Watkins said. “We still have a lot of things to clean up but its nice to be able to clean up mistakes after a win.”

Sophomore Tyler Tutt had an 11-yard rushing score for the Olympians, which proved to be decisive.

Milan Grice, a freshman from Rancho Bernardo High, rushed for 71 yards on the ground for San Diego Mesa.

Golden West led 7-0 in the first quarter just 1:47 into the contest, but McManus caught TD passes of 6, 36 and 9 yards.

McManus finished with eight receptions for 97 yards, while teammate Antoine Ware had four receptions for 85 yards. Matt Cain added five receptions for Mesa.

“McManus had a solid night,” Watkins said.

Sophomore Hugh Anthony (Mar Vista) and Isaiah Sayles combined for 17 tackles for the Olympians, including 4 1/2 sacks.

“Hugh and Isaiah were in the backfield all night causing havoc both against the run and the pass,” Watkins said. “The secondary did an amazing job holding their passing game in check.”

Watkins noted the play of defensive backs Hunter Allen, Anthony Barksdale, D.J. Dotson, Damurier Palmer and Darriel Weathers, who returned an interception 55 yards.

Mesa will play at L.A. Pierce, under its new head coach Carlos Woods, next Saturday at 6 p.m.

“With Coach Woods being the new head coach, there isn’t any prior knowledge to rely on,” Watkins said. “We will be in bright and early tomorrow morning to begin prepping for next week’s games.”
