Inland Empire: No. 1 Servite 28, Chaparral 7

SANTA ANA -- Temecula Chaparral took on Servite without its two best players Saturday night and the result wasn't as bad as expected.

Servite won, 28-7, at Santa Ana Stadium, but needed to scratch and claw the entire game.

The Friars, ranked No. 1 in the Southland by ESPNLA.com, held a 14-0 lead at the half, stretched the lead to 21 in the third quarter but couldn't shake the Pumas, who were playing without standout wide receiver Antoine Arnold (groin) and safety Darius Guillory (shoulder).

Chaparral (0-4) cut the lead back to 14 points on a 15-yard touchdown reception by Josh Harris midway through the third quarter, but that's as close as the Pumas would get.

Servite's first score was set up by this catch and run by tight end Ainslie Johnson, which set up this one-yard plunge by Jody Thomas.

The second touchdown for the Friars (5-0) was set up by this long run down the Chaparral sideline by quarterback Cody Pittman, eventually leading to their second touchdown, a 34-yard scamper by Sean DeRosa.

This long completion by Pittman set up his second touchdown run, a 12-yard burst up the middle that gave Servite a 21-0 lead.
