Los Medanos College Quarterback Sohail Mohsini lead the Mustangs to a 46-20 win over Cabrillo, throwing three touchdown passes and extending the team’s winning streak to 5-0.

LMC’s Jelani Davis was the first to set foot in the endzone, beating his coverage and completing a 19-yard pass from Mohsini. But kicker Sam DeRenobe’s attempt at the extra point wound up too far from the goal post so he was not able to give the Mustangs the additional point.

Craijon Menefee rushed three yards to stamp his name on the score sheet, giving LMC a 13-6 lead. Menefee would have a date with the end zone later on as well.

Mohsini connected with Davis again for a 38-yard touchdown pass, increasing the lead to 20-6. The Mustangs kept pushing forward from there on, scoring four more touchdowns throughout the game.

“It’s great to be 5-0 actually, I just hope we can keep it going throughout the next half of the season,” said Davis. “I’m trying to get 1,000 yards receiving and about 10 touchdowns.”

Picking out Tyrone Roberts’ run down the side of the field, Mohsini connected with his wide receiver from 63 yards out, extending the lead to 26-6. By halftime the Mustangs lead 33-13.

Mohsini threw for 335 yards against the Seahawks, taking his total for the season to 1,148 yards.

“I feel like we played a good game,” said Mohsini. “I felt like I ran the ball well when I needed to, there was a 4th and 18 and I ran for a first down.”  

The LMC defense only conceded two touchdowns, their lowest allowed on the season so far. In addition, Antoine Tanner was able to produce an interception with a run back of 21 yards.

The Seahawks did get one more opportunity to score as they took advantage of an offensive fumble. In the final quarter one of LMC’s running backs fumbled the ball, which was quickly scooped up by Travis Schuhe, who ran 70 yards for a touchdown, leaving several players far behind him.

Menefee closed out the game rushing four yards and scoring his second touchdown of the game. Menefee rushed for 22 yards overall and produced a one-handed catch in the third quarter that made the home fans erupt in cheer.

According to head coach Chris Shipe, the whole team impressed, but he acknowledged there is still room for improvement.

“We turned the ball over a couple times on offense, we had a couple of penalties in some situations where we made the distance a little bit more impossible to be able to pick up,” he said. “I thought offensive line played well. Our receivers caught the ball, made some big plays.”

The Mustangs’ next game is on the road against Yuba Saturday Oct. 14 with kickoff set for 1 p.m.
