Covina’s offensive attack was paced by senior running back Art Combest, who had 116 rushing yards on 13 carries and two touchdowns. The Colts came out of the gates strong with Combest scoring on a 64-yard touchdown run on the second play from scrimmage. “Art did a good job of running the ball, receiving and returning punts,’ Thomas said. Covina’s junior quarterback, Michael McDonough, also had an impressive night. He threw for 111 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for a touchdown and recorded a sack on defense. The Colts’ ball-hawking defense sacked Sifuentes nine times as it brought multiple blitzes. Junior linebacker Manny Esquivel recorded three of the nine sacks. Covina coach Darryl H. Thomas credited defensive linemen Ralph Diaz, Kenneth Toms and Rory Parker for their strong performances.

Sifuentes was pressured all night long in his team’s 37-0 nonleague loss to Covina. With the win, Covina improved its record to 4-1. Thomas was quick to recognize that league play is most important. “We played a good complete game tonight,’ Thomas said. “Now it’s a new season and we’re 0-0. We have a lot to work on. We need to improve our fundamentals and cut down on our penalties.’ 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
