The problem for the Mustangs was that they couldn't get Crenshaw or running back Justin Smith, who rushed 30 times for 143 yards, the ball. The quarterback fumbled the snap on back to back plays, leaving the offense in a fourth and seven situation with 68 seconds remaining.

Wilson was the player who helped the Eagles strike first and fool the defense to set up the touchdown on the game's opening drive.
On a night Murtha was on the verge of breaking the Newport Mesa record for career touchdowns, the senior wasn't taking down another mark held by a Costa Mesa running back. The back that took down the Newport Mesa career rushing record last week was shut down and stuck with 48 career touchdowns, one behind the record.
Costa Mesa, down just two, fell apart after it took over on downs on its 37. After a five yard run on first down by Oronde Crenshaw, who Estancia struggled containing all night as he finished with 162 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries, they couldn't move the ball on the ground.
"This loss is a tough pill to swallow," said Costa Mesa Coach Wally Grant, whose team outgained Estancia, 316 81, on the ground, and knocked out Estancia's quarterback right before halftime.
On third and one, most teams expect Estancia to pound the ball with Murtha. The offense decided to switch it up and it turned out to be the right call.
Wilson rolled to his right and found tight end Matt Jarmacz all alone. The two hooked up on a 58 yard pass play, almost a touchdown until defensive back Markiece Traylor pushed Jarmacz out of bounds on the two.
The Mustangs (2 4, 0 1 in league) held Murtha to a season low 52 yards on 16 carries. Murtha hurt his ankle twice in the fourth quarter. The final time on fourth down, after his six yard run came up a yard short of the first down marker with 2:27 left to play.

"I had a chance to think about it," said Bargas, believing two points were worth more than one. "We [went for] it."
The Eagles (4 2, 1 0), ranked No. 8 in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division, wouldn't have to hand the ball off to Murtha again. The defending league champions were on the way to their 12th straight league victory dating back to 2009.
The Eagles sure did and they converted the two point conversion run. Those two points proved to be the difference in Estancia defeating the Mustangs, 15 Nike Air Max Tavas Id 13, in the 46th edition of the rivalry football game.
Bargas said Brad Wilson left with a groin injury. The team's best passing threat was gone.
The offense moved a yard closer after an offside penalty on the Mustangs, their fourth penalty in the first half. From one yard out, Wilson snuck into the end zone to put the Eagles ahead.
Costa Mesa jumped offside.
Medero intercepted a pass near the Costa Mesa sideline and returned it 46 yards, setting up the Eagles on the opponent's 28.
The player who ran in the two point play was Robert Murtha. That was the only time he found the Nike Air Max Tavas Nordstrom
end zone in the Orange Coast League opener.
Ben Beck had just returned the kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown. With the game tied, and the Eagles going for an extra point kick to go ahead, Nike Air Max 2015 Leather
The play asked for a pass, and Costa Mesa's Noah JeyaRajah completed his first pass. But it was two yards short of moving the chains. The Mustangs turned the ball over on downs and lost the rivalry game for the third straight year.
