Roadrunners Football has been hot with a three-game win streak, as they have won by over five points in each of their wins. Their current record stands at 3-2 while they still have yet to play a conference match.
At home, the Roadrunners have done well with a record of 2-1 and have allowed 25 points per game. While on the road they are 1-1 with allowing 35 points per game.
Roadrunners offense and defense have allowed about 350 yards per game. The Roadrunners strength offensively is their run game, with nine rushing touchdowns compared to their eight passing touchdowns. They are lead by both halfback freshman Tony Williams and Sophomore halfback Kamone Best whom each have 57 carries and combined for 605 rushing yards.
The passing game has been below average for COD as their first quarterback, Tristan Swensen, started the first two games for COD in which the Roadrunners lost. Due to lack of passion, Swensen was replaced by Noah Shoeman who started the next three games that the Roadrunners won. Shoeman through three four games has seven touchdowns and four interceptions with 735 yards passing.
Not only the have the quarterbacks been the problem, but the receivers are also at fault as the most receptions caught by a receiver is 12. Only Jaurice Thomas has more than one touchdown reception with two.
The Roadrunners will be well rested as they go on the road to square off against Mt. San Jacinto in their first conference matchup.

Men’s soccer are in the middle of the season with their record at 2-4-3 and their conference record at 2-2-1.
Their offense has been stifled from scoring many goals as the most they have scored in a game is two, which was only one time this season in a 2-1 victory against San Diego Mesa back in September. The offense averages under one goal per game at exactly 0.78.
However, the defense has performed well allowing one goal per game. They have two goalkeepers that played well in Michael Cruz and Jorge Cañedo. For Cruz, he has played six games while allowing 11 goals and made 27 saves. While Cañedo has played six games and allowed less goals with five. On the contrary, Cañedo has converted less saves than Cruz with only eight.
The next match for Men’s soccer will be tomorrow at home against Palomar.
Women’s soccer has had a forgetful season as they have a record of 1-8 and no wins in their conference.
They’re on currently on a seven-game losing skid. Their last victory came back in August 26 in a 7-1 blowout against West Hills Lemoore. After what seem to be a decent 1-1 start the Roadrunners have not come close to seven goals a game. As their closest was only four goals scored in a crushing 5-4 loss against Mt. San Antonio.
San Diego Mesa will be the Roadrunners next opponent as they face them tomorrow in a conference matchup.
Volleyball has been playing well with their record at 7-6 and still awaiting their first conference match.
The home record compared to the road record is staggering. At home the Roadrunners please their crowd with an undefeated record of 3-0. However, on the road they are 1-5. Additionally, they are 3-1 when the team plays at a neutral site.
The next match for Volleyball will be on Wednesday against MiraCosta in Oceanside.
