Jimenez’s big plays lead Laton past Orange Cove

Orange Cove may have limited Laton receiver Elijah Jimenez to just three catches, but all three of them were devastating in the Mustangs’ 20-14 win over the Titans on Friday in the first round of the Division VI Valley Playoffs.

Jimenez ended the night with three catches for 144 yards and a touchdown.

Laton quarterback Manuel Cruz was involved in all three of the Mustangs’ touchdowns, as he passed for two scores and rushed for another.

Orange Cove quarterback Rolando Ramirez completed a 50-yard touchdown pass to Keanu Garcia in the fourth quarter, to make it a one-touchdown game.

But that was as close as it got, as Laton came away with the first round win.
