Once the Oakdale High football team eliminated the turnovers and penalties that plagued it in the first half, the Mustangs were tough to stop.
Oakdale scored touchdowns on four of its first five possessions in the second half to pull away from No. 6 seed Merced for a 51-27 win in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV semifinals at the Corral on Friday night.
“We’re a triple triple threat in the backfield,” said Mustangs running back Zeke Saffar, who carried the ball 23 times for 243 yards and a touchdown to go along with a receiving touchdown. “There’s me, Leo Ayala and Rylan Kerr. If you slow one of us down, one of the other two will kill you. It’s pick your poison.”
