TRACY — Tremain Buntan and Donnell Sims each scored a pair of touchdowns for Weston Ranch in a 33-12 Valley Oak League win over Kimball at Don Nicholson Stadium Friday.
“It is coming down to us being in an offensive rhythm,” Weston Ranch coach Mike Hale said. “And with the playoffs looming we are taking it one game at a time. And in this game, our defense really stepped up.”
Buntan – who ground out 158 yards on 17 carries — scored on a 16-yard touchdown run and on a 20-yard pass from James Simerly. Sims (12 carries, 67 yards) added touchdown runs of 10 and 11 yards, and Simerly found Kenny Williams with a 10-yard touchdown pass.
Simerly was 10 of 20 passing for 173 yards, and his favorite target was Oshari Dunn, who made three receptions for 58 yards.
The Cougars improve to 3-3 in the VOL and 4-5 overall while the Jaguars drop to 1-5, 2-7.
