Aztecs cruise to victory with Rashaad Penny’s career-high rushing night.
The Aztecs snap their two-game losing streak with a victory on the road.
The Aztecs win on the road and move to 7-2.
On Saturday night in Honolulu, the San Diego Aztecs looked like their old self as they defeated the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 28-7 on the road.
Aztecs’ star running back Rashaad Penny ran 30 times for a career-high 253 yards with two touchdowns. Penny averaged a little over 8-yards-per-carry and had a long run for 63 yards.
The Aztecs jumped out to an early 14-0 lead — which has been rare for the Aztecs offense the past two games. Juwan Washington ran for a 1-yard touchdown and Christian Chapman’s 16-yard touchdown pass in the second.
Overall, the Aztecs defense was excellent –limiting Hawaii to only 35 rushing yards and 2-14 on 3rd down conversions.
The Aztecs will need to win their final three games and a bowl victory in order to have three-consecutive 11 win seasons.
The Warriors struggled without having star wide receiver John Ursua who is out for the year with a torn ACL and no player really stood up in his place. Dylan Collie lead the Warriors with 41 yards on five receptions.
The running game was non-existent as well as star back Dicomey Saint-Juste had a season low 40 yards on 17 carries.
If the Warriors want to go bowling they will need to win three of their final four games.
