Teams that have been ranked

No. 1 Serra 38, Central Catholic-Modesto 7

If the Padres had any doubts after uneven performances in their first two games this season, they were put to rest Friday night in Modesto against a very good Central Catholic team. In its final tuneup before West Catholic Athletic League play begins Sept. 22 against Sacred Heart Cathedral in San Francisco, Serra (3-0) outscored the home team 28-0 in the second half. In the one-sided victory, quarterback Maealiuaki Smith threw two touchdown passes and 6-foot-6 tight end Cole Harrison caught two TD passes – one from Smith and the other from Nano Latu on a halfback option. More importantly for coach Patrick Walsh, Serra has outscored its last two opponents 48-0 after halftime. “We played for the full 48 minutes,” Walsh said. “We prepare for that. All of the teams we play are formidable. We have to play the entire 48 minutes.” The game was competitive for the first half. Jaden Green scored on a 5-yard run less than a minute into the game, but that was the offense’s only score until Thomas Gooch kicked a 45-yard field goal in the final two minutes of the second quarter to give Serra a 10-7 lead at the half. It was all Serra when the teams returned. Harrison’s touchdowns came from 27 and 7 yards out. In the third quarter, Braden Agosta caught a 34-yard pass to make the score 24-7. With a 2-yard run, Brooks Trimmer completed the scoring. Central Catholic is now 2-2. – Michael Lefkow

No. 2 De La Salle 35, No. 12 St. Francis 17

With 4:19 left in the game, quarterback Toa Faavae scored on a 12-yard bootleg to give visiting De La Salle its first double-digit lead of the season. Shortly after, the Spartans added another touchdown to avoid their first 0-3 start since 1975. The game story is provided by Darren Sabedra.

No. 3 Pittsburg 10, Monterey Trail-Elk Grove 7

Pittsburg won its home opener, improving to 3-0, thanks to an interception by Noah Quesada in the final minute. Marley Alcantara’s 34-yard touchdown pass to Quesada in the first quarter put the Pirates up 7-0 against a team looking for its first win after losses to Folsom and St. Francis. The teams remained tied until Pittsburg’s Jesus Lua Amaya kicked a short field goal with about five minutes remaining to take the lead. Pittsburg will host California the following Friday before traveling to Los Gatos on September 29. Darren Sabedra’s

No. 4 San Ramon Valley 45, Elk Grove 7

San Ramon Valley was on the road for the third time in a row on Friday. The Danville school, led by last season’s Bay Area News Group player of the year Luke Baker, defeated a home team by a wide margin. Baker threw six touchdown passes to lead the Wolves to a 28-7 halftime lead and never looked back. Owen Scott had two touchdown receptions, while Hudson Brinton had three. Baker’s touchdown pass broke a 7-7 tie, and his 34-yard connection with Scott increased the lead to 21-7. Evan Economos also had a receiving touchdown as SRV scored 40 points for the third time in a row. The Wolves defeated St. Ignatius 42-14 and Acalanes 44-21 in their first two games. Next Friday, SRV hosts McClymonds, which has outscored Bellarmine (40-0) and Bishop O’Dowd (45-0) by a combined 85-0. Last season, SRV came to Mack and won 45-42 in one of the year’s most important games. Darren Sabedra’s

Grant-Sacramento 22, No. 5 Los Gatos 21

Los Gatos fell just one point short in an intersectional battle against visiting Grant-Sacramento, the defending state champion, in a game that came about in the middle of the week on short notice after Live Oak canceled its game against the Bay Area team. Glenn Reeves has the full report available here.

No. 6 Valley Christian 34, Hollister 3

Valley Christian built a 13-3 halftime lead on its way to a blowout victory in its final game before WCAL play begins in two weeks. Sophomore Ekiah McLemore, who scored two touchdowns in a win over Salinas last week, led the Warriors with three on Friday. Valley Christian, which won one game last season, improved to 3-0 with touchdowns from Joseph Stephens and Marcel Leggett Jr. Valley will have a week off before hosting Bellarmine in a WCAL opener on September 23. Hollister dropped to 1-2. Darren Sabedra’s

St. Bonaventure-Ventura 24, No. 7 Archbishop Riordan 14

St. Bonaventure rushed for 175 yards, held off Riordan’s potent offense, and made enough big plays to defeat the Crusaders in San Francisco. In the fourth quarter, Koen Glover’s 25-yard touchdown run and Drew Cofield’s punt return touchdown erased a 14-10 Riordan lead. Riordan’s Michael Mitchell Jr. set a school record by completing 27 of 39 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns. Chris Lawson, who had 13 receptions for 134 yards, caught both touchdowns, including a 35-yard go route that gave Riordan the lead in the fourth quarter. Cynai Thomas, a sophomore wide receiver, had 10 receptions for 91 yards. Riordan fell to 2-1. St. Bonaventure is now 2-2. — Dycus, Joseph

In addition, Bonilla completed 6 of 7 passes for 66 yards.

SHC (0-3) will have a bye the following weekend before opening WCAL play at home against top-ranked Serra. Darren Sabedra’s

No. 11 El Cerrito 34, Fremont-Oakland 0, forfeit

The game was called off about two minutes before halftime because Fremont didn’t have enough players to field a team. “Fremont had very low numbers, then a few kids got hurt,” said El Cerrito coach Jacob Rincon. The game will be recorded as a forfeit, but the stats will be recorded. Micah Avery scored in the first quarter on touchdown runs of 15 and 70 yards. Before the game was called, El Cerrito (3-0) scored three more times in the second quarter. Gavin Thompson returned a punt 55 yards for a touchdown, quarterback Michael Vanhook connected with three-star recruit Kamani Jackson for a 25-yard touchdown pass, and Vanhook added a 10-yard rushing score. Fremont’s next two non-league games are against Liberty and Livermore. The Tigers (0-3) will then have back-to-back bye weeks before beginning Oakland Athletic League play against Oakland on Oct. 13. – Michael Lefkow

No. 13 Liberty 53, Wood-Vacaville 14

Liberty sophomore running back Jaxon Bell had a big night as the host Lions bounced back from a one-point loss to Los Gatos to beat Wood. In 14 carries, Bell rushed for 266 yards and six touchdowns to lead Brentwood to its second victory in three games this season. Liberty’s senior Ryan McKendry also scored on a 95-yard run.

No. 14 Monte Vista 40, Bellarmine 30

Brayden Turner completed 11 of 19 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns, one short of the school record, to lead the host Mustangs (1-2) past the Bells (1-2). With 2:15 left in the fourth quarter and a three-point lead, Turner evaded a blitz and found Julian McMahan open for a game-winning 25-yard touchdown pass as Monte Vista improved to 3-0 for the second time in three years. Parker Threatt, the Bellarmine quarterback, scored three touchdowns and accumulated 295 yards rushing and passing. Curtis Pashelka has written a recap.

No. 15 St. Ignatius 35, Cathedral Catholic-San Diego 28

For the second week in a row, the Wildcats (2-1) won a thriller, scoring the game’s final two touchdowns to overcome a 28-20 fourth-quarter deficit. With 2:56 remaining, QB Soren Hummel broke a 28-28 tie with a keeper. With 5:53 left in the game, Hummel connected with Pierce St. Geme on a 2-point conversion after Mo Barnum’s touchdown made it 28-26. Last week, St. Ignatius won 28-27 over Jesuit-Carmichael after the home team failed to convert a 2-point conversion with two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. St. Ignatius led Cathedral Catholic (1-3) 20-7 midway through the third quarter before the San Diego visitors scored three unanswered touchdowns. Jarious Hogan’s 4-yard run extended the Wildcats’ lead to 13 points. SI is off next week before hosting San Francisco rival Riordan in the WCAL opener on September 23. – Michael Lefkow

No. 16 Archbishop Mitty 35, Santa Teresa 0

No. 18 Campolindo 14, Windsor 14

Scott Lyon’s 30-yard reception on fourth-and-12 from the Windsor 40 set up host Campolindo’s fourth-quarter tying touchdown. The visitors then drove down the field but failed to convert a 33-yard field goal attempt with 16 seconds remaining. The decision to play overtime was left up to the coaches, and Campo’s Kevin Macy, whose team beat Vanden-Fairfield in double overtime to start the season before losing 6-0 at home to Amador Valley last week, chose to settle for a tie. Campo has a record of 1-1-1. Windsor has a 0-1-1 record. Campo led 7-0 at halftime thanks to Micah Parker’s 1-yard run in the second quarter.

Thurman, a junior who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 215 pounds, has already received offers from San Jose State, Oregon State, and Nevada.
