Sophomore Devan Walker rushed for two touchdowns and the City College of San Francisco defense limited Santa Rosa Junior College to 182 yards of offense as the Rams rolled to their fifth win of the season, 42-7 over the Bear Cubs on Saturday at George M. Rush Stadium.

CCSF took a shutout all the way into the fourth quarter in another dominant effort by the defense. The Rams sacked Santa Rosa quarterbacks four times and forced eight punts to end potential Bear Cub scoring drives.

Leading 21-0 in the second quarter, Walker capped a four-play, 30-yard CCSF drive with his first TD, a seven-yard rush, with eight minutes to play in the half.

Walker closed out the scoring for the Rams with eight minutes left in the fourth quarter, running in from six yards out for his second touchdown of the contest and sixth of the season. He ran 11 times for 51 yards.

Quarterback Jack Newman had a relatively quiet game by his standards. After consecutive 400-yard, 4-TD passing games, Newman completed 16 of 25 attempts for 157 yards and three touchdowns. Jeffrey Weimer hauled in seven catches for 70 yards and a TD. Max Rodarte and Roderick Gaskins Jr. also had touchdown receptions.

On defense, Jahvius Leui led San Francisco with nine total tackles and was credited with 1.5 sacks. Elias Rantissi and Sincere Jackson both had eight tackles each.

The 5-0 Rams have a bye next week and return to action on Oct. 16 when they travel to Chabot College for both teams' Bay 6 Conference opener.
