Fresno 37, El Capitan-Merced 20

The Warriors kept their unbeaten streak alive in a rout of the visiting Gauchos (1-3) on homecoming night at McLane Stadium.

Fresno (3-0) came back from an early first-quarter deficit with big touchdown runs by Nyric Hinton, who busted for scores of 59 and 62 yards to put the Warriors in front 20-17 just before halftime. Hinton finished with 146 yards on just four carries.

The teams exchanged field goals before the Warriors pulled away with a 27-yard rushing touchdown by Khory Day in the third quarter and a 16-yard scoring run by Arthur McDaniels with just over four minutes to go. Day finished with 123 yards passing, including a 40-yard score to Lee Major (four catches, 97 yards).

Lee Major scored on a 26-yard pass from Khory Day, and returned a fumble (16 yards) and an interception (86 yards) for touchdowns as the Warriors won in the return of coach Ray Reyes.

Nyric Hinton also had three touchdowns for Fresno on runs of 23, 48 and 6 yards, part of a 16-carry, 161-yard performance.

Week 1

Fast start for Fresno

The last time Fresno was in this position, Gerald Ford was president, Apple was in its infancy and ABBA ruled the music charts.

The Warriors are off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 1976, section historian Bob Barnett said, following a 35-14 defeat of Livingston from the Sac-Joaquin Section that featured the team’s fourth defensive touchdown of the season and a 142-yard, two-touchdown performance from running back Nyric Hinton.

“It’s exciting at my old age to see the kids excited about football,” said 65-year-old coach Ray Reyes, in the second season of his second stint as Fresno’s coach.

There’s excitement again after a 7-5 season in 2014 that saw Fresno beat Golden Valley 20-14 in its first playoff game in seven years before losing to eventual D-III champion Hanford 41-16 in a game Reyes said was more competitive than the score indicates.

That comes on the heels of a 21-72 skid in the nine seasons following Reyes’ resignation for health reasons in 2004.

“That was very big for our confidence,” Reyes said of the playoff win. “And even though (Hanford) beat us pretty good, we felt we did a lot of good things in that game. We shoved them around and moved the ball, we just had some fumblitis.

“The six most important inches in football, and in life really, is the space between the ears. Our kids came with confidence and it’s carrying over.”
