COSTA MESA — Costa Mesa High senior Jordan Walden caught seven passes in the first half of Friday night's Orange Coast League opener against Godinez.
Four of them were thrown by the Godinez quarterback.
"Their quarterback, I guess, wanted to pick on me," Walden said after his four-interception game, believed to tie a school record and one off the CIF Southern Section record.
No one was really bullying the Mustangs at Jim Scott Stadium. They did whatever they wanted against the Grizzlies.
Mesa had plenty to celebrate in its homecoming game after walloping Godinez, 59-7.
"It's all starting to come together," said first-year Costa Mesa Coach Wally Grant, whose team won its fifth straight game. "We're reaping what we sow. It's a lot of fun to come out here on Friday nights and watch these kids do what they've been coached to do. It's taken us a little longer than I wanted to get our defensive team rolling, and they're starting to roll. My assistant coaches are doing an unbelievable job, and my kids are working their [behinds] off in practice."
