ONTARIO – Ontario’s Manny Ramirez’s touchdown early in the first quarter against McLoughlin High School Friday night defined the game.

After the Tigers staked out an 8-0 lead edge, the Pioneers opened the ensuing drive in their own territory. On the first snap, Ramirez rushed through the McLoughlin offensive line, grabbed the ball as the Pioneer quarterback tried to hand it off and ran the theft into the end zone for the touchdown.

Ruben Hernandez’s point after run was good and the home team was ahead 16-0.

The night didn’t get any better for the Pioneers and Ontario added touchdowns throughout the game . . .
