College of the Redwoods made it five straight wins on Saturday, although this one wasn’t as close as most of their games have been this year.
After playing in six straight one-possession games, the Corsairs cruised to a relatively easy 39-14 victory at winless Yuba College.
The win lifts the Corsairs to 5-2 overall and 3-0 in the American-Pacific 7 Conference, moving them one win ahead of Feather River (2-0 in conference), which had a bye this weekend.
For CR, there was no letdown one week after a midseason bye.
“Our goal was to come out fast on both sides of the ball and play well and that goal was accomplished,” head coach Jason White said.
“It was a good victory and we came out of it healthy.”
Former Fortuna Husky Max Hough continued to impress at quarterback and threw for two touchdowns and no interceptions.
And he wasn’t the only former Husky to impress.
Freshman running back Levi Nyberg had his best game yet at the collegiate level and had two touchdown runs, one from 15 yards and one from one.
With the injured Levi Cox-Cooley out for the season, Emmanuel Igbonagwam got his first start in the offensive backfield and also ran the ball well, as he continues to have an impact.
Igbonagwam scored on a 35-yard TD run.
Hough completed a 50-yard TD pass to receiver Donte Hurt for the Corsairs’ first TD of the night and would later connect with receiver Sean LaChapelle on a 15-yard TD.
Mason Priddy also continued to have a huge impact both in the defensive backfield and on special teams and returned a punt 60 yards for a TD.
“He’s an athlete,” White said of the playmaker.
The Corsairs led 32-0 at halftime, with the home team scoring a couple of late TDs to avoid the shutout.
