SPORTS Kingsmen football gain first road victory M

adison McElhaney Staff Writer

The No. 13 CLU Kingsmen football team continued its winning-streak this Saturday as they traveled to La Verne, beating the Leopards 5217 behind Daniel Mosier’s 168-yards rushing. Senior quarterback Jake Laudenslayer ‘s five total touchdowns, along with senior cornerback Justin HaulcyBateman’s two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, sealed CLU’s victory. “Our success in this game can be attributed to our offensive line’s ability to pick up La Verne’s blitzes and neutralize their stunts, which allowed me to get the ball to our play makers on the outside,” Laudenslayer said. Senior linebacker Jacob Norlock led the team with 11 tackles, and freshman wide receiver Nick Bueno led the

team in receptions with five. The Kingsmen opened up the game with a 15-play, 76-yard drive featuring rushes from both Mosier and Laudenslayer. Reigning SCIAC player of the week, junior wide receiver Eric Rogers, finished off the drive with a six-yard touchdown reception from Laudenslayer. After holding the Leopards on their second drive, a muffed punt allowed CLU to take over at the La Verne 18-yard line. A holding penalty set the Kingsmen back 10 yards, but Laudenslayer threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Frankie Jones on the ensuing play, increasing the Kingsmen’s lead to 14-0. “Jake and our receiving staff informed us on how La Verne was covering and gave instructions to running certain routes, so I was prepared when that pass came,” Jones said. La Verne started the second

quarter with the ball, but their quarterback, Jose Garay, fumbled the ball on the CLU 30 yard-line. “Defense played strong and really made some big plays when we needed to,” Norlock said. The Kingsmen went ahead 21-0 on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Laudenslayer to Bueno. La Verne’s next drive ended with another turnover when Haulcy-Bateman intercepted the Leopards’ quarterback and returned it for a touchdown, putting the Kingsmen up 28-0 in the middle of the second quarter. “Our coaches prepared us both mentally and physically during practices this past week by drilling us on specific formations and routes they knew La Verne uses frequently,” HaulcyBateman said. “I happened to be in the right place at the right time.” After a Leopards field goal, the Kingsmen had good field

position again after a 47-yard kick return by Haulcy-Bateman. A pass completion and a 15-yard penalty in favor of the Kingsmen set Laudenslayer up for a 15yard touchdown CLU’s success continued when Haulcy-Bateman intercepted Garay for a second time to end the half with a 35-3 Kingsmen lead. “I kind of knew the routes they, were trying to run from a weeks worth of preparation, so I took advantage of the opportunities and made plays to put the team in a better position for victory,” Haulcy-Bateman said. Mosier opened up the second half big for CLU with a 76-yard touchdown run. The Kingsmen’s lead continued on their next possession when Laudenslayer completed a 35-yard pass to Jones for another touchdown with 11:39 left in the third quarter, bringing the score to 493.

“We were firing on all cylinders,” Mosier said. “We had definitely found our rhythm and our confidence for this game.” After building a 46-point lead, the Kingsmen went to their reserve players on both offense and defense to run out the clock, and ended the game with a 52-17 victory. “Because of the score, we played most of the roster at some point,” head coach Ben McEnroe said. “But overall, our offensive line dominated both run blocking and in pass protection.” The Kingsmen (4-1, 3-0 SCIAC) are on the road again Saturday at 7 p.m. against the Pomona Pitzer Sagehens (0-5, 0-3 SCIAC), where they plan on extending their undefeated SCIAC record. “Not much changed from last week to this week as far as our attitudes,” Mosier said. “If we fine-tune our weaknesses every week like we have been, we can have a really special year.”

Kingsmen soccer shut out the Beavers on the road R

It has been a rough year for Kingsmen Soccer. The team has only managed to win one game all year. However, the team has bonded and the players are close to each other despite the adversity they have faced. Last Wednesday the team hit the road to take on a tough Redlands team that had beaten them 4-0 on Oct. 2. The Kingsmen entered the game on a five-game losing streak since their lone win of the season against La Verne 5-0. During the stretch the Kingsmen have been outscored 17-2. Redlands took control of the game from the beginning when Gabe Ramirez scored in the 6th minute to put Redlands up 1-0, a lead they would not relinquish. Tim Berggren scored on the assist from Will Walker in the 33rd minute to give Redlands a 2-0 halftime lead. At the start of the second half, things got out of hand in a hurry as Redlands blew the game open with Jamie Griffin and Cody

Carlson each scoring a goal within 25 seconds in the 48th and 49th minute to go up 4-0. The scoring continued as Ramirez scored his second goal of the game en route to a 7-0 victory over the Kingsmen. Redlands improved their perfect SCIAC record to 9-0 and improved to 12-3 overall. The Kingsmen dropped to 1-8 in conference play and 1-12 overall. The Kingsmen had few opportunities to score. They were outshot by Redlands 3013 and Redlands had 11 corner kicks. The Kingsmen only had one corner kick in the full 90 minutes. “You got to get yourself up and find ways to improve,” Kingsmen head coach Dan Kuntz said of the plan to move forward. “There are 12 men who have not given up on each other.” Junior forward and leader Raul Yepez is going through another injury-plagued season. “Last season I was injured. I was really looking forward to coming back this season and then I got injured again at the beginning of the season,” Yepez

said. “It has been tough.” Despite the frustration from the injuries that Yepez has dealt with, he has still managed to appear in 10 games and is the Kingsmen’s leading scorer. He has also been inspirational to the team on the sideline. The players still enjoy playing together. They are determined to find ways to improve and win games. At the conclusion of Thursday’s practice, the team sang “Happy Birthday” to teammate Iggy Wagner who turned 22 years old. The story heading into Saturday’s game against Cal Tech was that it was time for the team to get its second win of the season, mostly due to the Kingsmen blowing their lead against the Beavers on Sept. 22. “The team needs to stay focused,” assistant coach Mario Marquez said. “We emphasize capitalizing on scoring opportunities. If you do not capitalize, you will get beat.” The Kingsmen started off slow on offense, but their defense kept them in the game. The Kingsmen eventually got on the scoreboard in the 37th minute on a goal by Enrique Saragoza

off an assist from Yepez. The Kingsmen had a 1-0 lead at halftime, again. This game however, the Kingsmen offense started clicking in the second half. The Kingsmen scored three goals in the final 15 minutes of

play to seal a 4-0 victory on the road. The Kingsmen lost to Chapman 4-1 at home Monday night in a non-conference match. The Kingsmen will travel to La Verne today.
