Riverside won its fourth straight game against division rival El Camino in Redondo Beach on Oct. 3.     

The Tigers would win the game easily, 42-21, with their explosive running game once again.

Three of the Tigers running backs ended the game with more than 100 yards including Christopher Anderson, Dontel James and Seth Acada.

Tigers’ Seth Acada who finished the game with the 159 yards, which was the Tigers leading rusher.    

The Tigers turned the ball over early in the first quarter, but would offensively break free with a 96-yard touchdown by Anderson.

The action wouldn’t end there as the Tigers would score 21 of its 42 points in the second quarter with touchdowns on offense by James, and wide receiver Dominique Maiden.

The Tigers defense contributed to the offense with a 29-yard fumble recovery touchdown by to Sebastian La Rule on Defense.

Besides the Tigers defense adding to the scoreboard, they shook up El Camino’s offense by holding back their starting quarterback Jorge Hernandez who leads their team in touchdowns and yards.

Hernandez’s rough start against the Tigers defense forced El Camino to go with their backup quarterback Brent Boehm who didn’t have that much success either against the Tigers defense.

With the Tigers defensively shutting down El Camino, gave a chance for Kevin Olsen to do his thing on the offensive side with a 5-yard touchdown to Jordan Brewer in the fourth quarter.
