Jones scores three TDs as Aliso Niguel hands Sonora its first loss – Orange County Register

ALISO VIEJO – Aliso Niguel used the big play to beat Sonora, 41-21, Thursday in a nonleague game at Aliso Niguel High.

Three of Aliso’s six touchdowns were plays of 34 yards or greater. Tyler Jones scored three times with an 84-yard punt return and touchdown catches of 34 and 35 yards.

On the ensuing Sonora possession, Jones fielded a punt at the Aliso 16-yard line and returned it for a touchdown to put the Wolverines ahead two scores.

Sonora defensive back and Cal commit Chigozie Anusiem was ejected on the ensuing kickoff after arguing with an official.

The Wolverines took advantage of Anusiem’s absence in the second half. On the opening series of the second half, Robertson threw a fade route to Jones for a 34-yard touchdown.
