CARSON (AP) - Marques Rodgers ran for three touchdowns and Adoree Jackson caught two touchdowns and ran for another as Gardena Serra defeated Oakdale 42-15 in the California State Division II Championship Saturday night.

SALIDA - Danny Vos threw two interceptions in the first half, and on Ripon Christian's impressive first drive (which started on its own 11 and ate up nearly 6:30 off the clock) in the third quarter he lost a fumble on the Elliot Christian 1-yard line while trying to reach for the end zone.
