The Sultans looked to start their voyage for the season on the right foot and that they did as they romped to the 56-19 victory over Castle Park.

Santana would set the tone early on as Ian Litten would score first on 1-yarder to make it 7-0. The defense would come up big and give the ball back to the offense. The offense led by senior quarterback Josh Oedewaldt was able to extend their lead to 14-0 on a 10-yard grab by Colton Snipes.

The second quarter was more of the same for Santana as the offense put up more points. The first score in the second quarter came way of a 16 pass reception by Davon Chestnut from Oedewaldt, Dale Genshaw had the next score on a 6-yard score and Litten scored again on a 1-yarder. Castle Park got on the board with a 25-yard pass reception.

With the Sultans leading 35-6 at the break they came back in the third quarter and scored another touchdown to make it 42-6 on a 10-yard catch by Chestnut. The Trojans scored again to make it 42-13.

Santana had other opportunities to extend their lead but turnovers occurred. In the fourth quarter Rahzel Wilson scored on a 6-yard run for the Sultans and finishing things off was Sean Iverson with a long 45 yard scamper.

“We need to clean up turnovers and need to play all four quarters.” Said Santana coach Tim Estes, “Everyone played hard and we move onto next week.”

For the game Oedewaldt finished 20-for30 for 283 yards and 3 TDs and an interception. Leading the receivers it was Chestnut who hauled in 9 balls for 133 yards.

As a team the Sultans rushed for 171 yards and points wise the 56 is tied for third in school history.
