COSTA MESA — Costa Mesa High allowed Godinez to win its first Orange Coast League football game in school history last week. But the Mustangs wouldn't give Saddleback its first league victory in four years.
The Roadrunners tried to ruin Costa Mesa's homecoming and end a 17-game losing streak in league play. The Mustangs fell behind twice Friday night before coming back to win, 28-15, at Jim Scott Stadium, earning victory No. 1 in league this season.
"[The win is] nice, but we're not happy," Costa Mesa Coach Jeremy Osso said. "We're not satisfied."
Osso had to see Costa Mesa (2-5, 1-1 in league) battle back in the fourth quarter after seeing Saddleback take a 15-14 lead.
The Roadrunners believed they stood a chance to prevail in league for the first time since Nov. 2, 2006. They played in the Golden West League back then.
They are new to the Orange Coast League but the theme remained the same for the Roadrunners when it comes to league results.
