Ayden Ortega scored five touchdowns and the Hesperia Christian football team claimed the second CIF-Southern Section title in program history with a 48-22 victory over Avalon. But Ortega, a junior, didn't quite know how much of a factor he could be Saturday night. Ortega landed awkwardly on his hip and pinched a muscle in the semifinals against Lancaster Baptist. He looked perfectly fine in the title game, breaking loose for the five rushing touchdowns as the Patriots claimed the program's first time since 1984.
