Mira Costa rides Dotson

first_imgThe Normans entered the week as perhaps the most dangerous Southland team without a victory. Dotson made sure Beverly Hills would have that dubious distinction at least one more week. Dotson carried the ball 33 times for 206 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-14 nonleague win for visiting Mira Costa (2-2). “I was nervous coming here because I knew they were a dangerous team that wanted to get a win for themselves and for their fans,” Dotson said. “We were just better.” Dotson also ran for 10 of Mira Costa’s 19 first downs, three of which helped the Mustangs run the final four minutes off the clock. “My goal is to break it on every play, but when it comes to short yardage, I just lower my head and find that first hole,” Dotson said. “It’s really important when you’re trying to run time off the clock, and I like being the one they give it to in those situations.” Dotson’s job was made easier by the offensive line’s ability to continually provide key blocks when Mira Costa needed them.” “The line did great,” Dotson said. “They lasted all four quarters and we were even missing (Mike) Freeman.” Mira Costa’s line dominated on the defensive side as well. Faced with first-and-goal inside the 1-yard line, the Mustangs line stopped Beverly Hills’ Sae-bin Park and Ramon Judkins on three straight plays. Quarterback Dex Lucci punctuated his team’s futility by overthrowing Erik Munzer in the end zone. “That goal-line stand was huge,” Mira Costa coach Don Morrow said. “I can’t fault their play calling. I would have done the same thing.” Mira Costa’s offense picked up where its defense left off, methodically picking apart Beverly Hills. Dotson’s 13-yard scoring run capped a 10-play drive, which spanned 5:09. “To do what we did on defense and then turn around and have that great drive afterward was a huge part of this (win),” Morrow said.
