No. 1 Serra 42, No. 15 Archbishop Mitty 0

In the first quarter, Joseph Latu scored on a 1-yard run, and Jaden Green’s 4-yard run in the second quarter, set up by Kyon Loud’s 55-yard punt return, made it 14-0. From there, the San Mateo visitors never looked back, rolling to a West Catholic Athletic League victory over Mitty at Foothill College. Loud’s 5-yard end-around run late in the first half increased the lead to 21-0, and the Padres added three more touchdowns in the third quarter to improve to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in the league. Mitty was defeated 4-2, 1-2. Serra will host Bellarmine on Saturday, and Mitty will pay a visit to Archbishop Riordan. Darren Sabedra’s

No. 3 San Ramon Valley 35, No. 19 Clayton Valley 7

As San Ramon Valley (6-0, 1-0) broke open a competitive game in the second half for a running-clock victory in EBAL Mountain Division play, Marco Jones made big plays on offense (two TD receptions) and defense (strip sack, huge stop on third down), and QB Luke Baker (334 yards passing, four TDs). Clayton Valley is 2-4, 0-1 in league play. The recap is available here, thanks to Darren Sabedra.

No. 4 Pittsburg 58, Deer Valley 0

The Pirates (6-0, 1-0 Bay Valley Athletic League) won for the 11th time in a row, dating back to 2012. Marley Alcantara completed 6 of 13 passes for 55 yards, but he threw three touchdown passes, giving him 19 for the season. Pittsburg dominated on the ground, with junior Jamar Searcy, a transfer from Liberty, gaining 140 yards on five carries. He ran for two touchdowns. Marc Harrell Jr., Makari Kenion, and Bobby Shaw all scored touchdowns. Kenion now has eight catches on the season. Andrew Marin, the backup quarterback, threw the touchdown pass to Harrell. Deer Valley (3-3, 0-1), which broke an 18-game losing streak dating back to 2021 earlier this season, began the toughest stretch of its 2023 schedule Friday night. The Wolverines’ next three opponents are league opponents Heritage, Liberty, and Antioch, with the season ending Nov. 3 at Freedom. – Michael Lefkow

No. 5 Archbishop Riordan 55, Bellarmine 41

The visiting Crusaders won their fifth game in a row, leading 42-13 at halftime. After three quarters, the score was 49-20. In the fourth period, Bellarmine outscored Riordan 21-6, but the game was never in doubt. Riordan led 55-27 before Bellarmine scored twice in the final four minutes. The game was only competitive once, in the first quarter, when Bells quarterback Parker Threatt ran 16 yards to cut Riordan’s lead to 14-7 with 6:30 remaining. Riordan then went on a 28-6 run to end the half, ensuring that Bellarmine fell to 1-5, 0-3. The Crusaders, who scored first on a 48-yard run on first down on Friday, are becoming more frightening with each passing week. They are 3-0 in WCAL play, outscoring their opponents 138-92. That works out to an average of 15 points per game. Riordan hosts Mitty the following Saturday before traveling to Serra and St. Francis. The game against St. Francis will be played after only six days of rest. – Michael Lefkow

No. 6 El Cerrito 64, Bethel 0

El Cerrito dominated Bethel in the Tri-County Athletic League Rock Division opener. Kamani Jackson, a Washington State commit, kicked things off with a 50-yard punt return, and Ziare Eastman scored rushing touchdowns of 15 and 50 yards. Guardian Harper ran eight yards for a touchdown, and Ronald Williams scored on a one-yard run. Micah Avery, a senior running back, scored on one and sixteen yards. Quarterback Michael Vanhook connected with Jayvon Bolds for a 40-yard touchdown and Terrell Turner for a five-yard touchdown. Coach Jacob Rincon’s defense recorded its second shutout of the season, with two sacks from Sione Fanaika. Since 2019, the Gauchos have not lost a league game. El Cerrito (6-0, 1-0) hosts Pinole Valley on Thursday, while Bethel (1-5, 0-1) hosts Hercules on Friday. – Dycus, Joseph

No. 11 Los Gatos 37, No. 23 Sacred Heart Prep 7

The Wildcats (4-2) scored at least one touchdown in each quarter of their Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division opener against Sacred Heart Prep. The Gators (3-3, 1-1) hung tough for the first half, trailing only 14-7 at the break. Los Gatos, on the other hand, outscored the visitors 23-0 in the second half, turning the game into a rout. Boxer Kopcsak-Yeung had a fantastic night. He rushed for 164 yards and scored four touchdowns. His longest touchdown run was 73 yards. A.J. Minyard completed eight of nine passes for 109 yards and a touchdown. Los Gatos’ first touchdown came on an 8-yard pass from Minyard to Jaylen Thomas. Linebacker Henry Masters and cornerback Scott Garwood both had ten tackles. Los Gatos played a difficult non-league schedule, winning by one point over Liberty, losing by one point to Grant-Sacramento, and losing by ten points to Pittsburg. However, it should have toughened the Wildcats up for league play. SHP should be in the hunt until the end because the PAL Bay will receive five automatic bids to the Central Coast Section playoffs. The Gators defeated Burlingame 41-7 last week, and Burlingame beat Mountain View on Friday. – Michael Lefkow

No. 12 Wilcox 41, Menlo-Atherton 3

Wilcox dominated on defense and Tyson Bonilla ran the Chargers’ split-back veer offense to perfection, rushing for two touchdowns and throwing for another as the visitors rolled to victory in the first league meeting between these traditional public school powers. The game’s story is told by David Kiefer.

No. 13 St. Francis 21, No. 9 St. Ignatius 6

St. Francis held St. Ignatius scoreless, and Aaron Knapp threw two touchdown passes to Perrion Williams as the host Lancers rebounded from a lopsided loss at Serra last week. St. Francis now leads the series 3-3, 2-1. SI is 3-3, 1-2. Glenn Reeves has more information here.

No. 14 Campolindo 49, College Park 21

Joe Revelos caught a 35-yard touchdown pass to kick off a big night for the Campo offense as the Cougars defeated College Park at home in Moraga to improve to 4-1-1 overall and 2-0 in the Diablo Athletic League’s Foothill Division. Revelos had four receptions for 65 yards. Mack Fisher scored on a 10-yard run, Crosby Kelly scored on a 20-yard reception, and Jake Spencer scored on a 50-yard interception return. Micah Parker finished with 78 yards on nine carries and two touchdown runs of 24 and 20 yards. Isaiah Ortiz completed 10 of 12 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns. Campo led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter and 35-0 at the half. College Park’s Izaac Jinks and Hunter Pelayo both ran for more than 100 yards, and Langston Cook had some productive runs and played well on defense. “Our boys played really hard and fought the entire game,” said Casey Moreno, the team’s first-year coach. “New program, we’re getting better.” Campo travels to Northgate next Friday, while College Park (2-4, 0-3) hosts Las Lomas. Darren Sabedra’s

No. 16 Amador Valley 70, Dougherty Valley 0

The Dons (4-2) won their first game with new quarterback Tristan Tia, cruising past Dougherty Valley in the East Bay Athletic League Valley Division. Tia, a Granada transfer who was required to sit out the first five games due to transfer eligibility rules, threw five touchdown passes and ran for a sixth. The junior, who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 190 pounds, completed 17 of 21 passes for 365 yards. Nate Jetter caught 10 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns. Anthony Harrington caught three passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns. After scoring only 75 points in their first five games, the Dons were eagerly awaiting Tia’s eligibility. On September 15, he scored 41 points in a seven-point victory over Monte Vista. Dougherty Valley dropped to 2-5, 0-1 on the year. – Michael Lefkow

No. 17 Monte Vista 41, Foothill 14

Monte Vista running back Julian McMahan had 169 yards and two touchdowns, and quarterback Braydon Turner threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns in coach Johnny Millard’s return to Pleasanton. Joseph Dycus was at Foothill and has a detailed report available here.

No. 18 Hillsdale 35, Homestead 0

Hillsdale improved to 6-0 overall and 2-0 in the Peninsula Athletic League De Anza Division with three touchdown passes from Erick Waugh on Thursday. Waugh completed eight of fifteen passes for 156 yards. Dante Allendorf gained 138 yards and one touchdown on nine carries. He was also the recipient of two of Waugh’s touchdown passes. Bennett Young also had an 83-yard receiving touchdown. Hillsdale’s defense limited Homestead’s total offense to 54 yards. Kingston Hua had two interceptions, while Waugh had one. Hillsdale travels to Menlo Park on Friday. On October 13, Homestead (1-5) will be at The King’s Academy. Glenn Reeves’

No. 20 Menlo 14, Palo Alto 0

With two touchdowns in the final 5:41 of the fourth quarter, the undefeated Knights broke up a scoreless game. Both TDs were scored by Nicky Scacco, the first on a short pass from Mikey McGrath and the second on a 4-yard run. Menlo has a 6-0 overall record and a 2-0 record in the PAL De Anza Division. Hillsdale is also undefeated. McGrath threw for 147 yards on 12 of 16 attempts. Brady Jung, who had seven catches for 139 yards, caught several of those passes. Bradford Tudor had a strong defensive performance, recording an interception and a key second-half QB sack with the home team deep in Menlo Park territory. Palo Alto dropped to 2-4, 0-1. “Our offense is MIA,” said Palo Alto coach David DeGeronimo via text message. – Michael Lefkow

No. 22 Christopher 35, Oak Grove 14

Christopher won its BVAL Mt. Hamilton Division opener on the road in San Jose, building a 28-7 lead at halftime. In the first half, with his team leading 14-7, William Rizqallah scored on a 12-yard run to extend the lead to two touchdowns. After two quarters, Jaxen Robinson’s 13-yard run increased the lead to 21. In the third quarter, Robinson’s 30-yard touchdown pass to Amari Bluford completed the scoring for the winning team. On Thursday, Christopher will host Santa Teresa. On Friday, Oak Grove (2-4, 0-1) will travel to Lincoln-San Jose. Darren Sabedra’s

No. 24 Acalanes 54, Northgate 13

Acalanes evened its record at 3-3 thanks to two touchdowns from Cal-bound wide receiver Trevor Rogers, who also threw a pass for six points and ran in a 2-point conversion. Following a 0-3 start, the Dons have now won three in a row, outscoring their opponents 160-13. Acalanes improved to 2-0 in the Diablo Athletic League Foothill Division, where the Dons, Campolindo, Las Lomas, and Miramonte are all tied for first place in the same Lamorinda School District. Sully Bailey TD catches of 19 and 7 yards for Rogers, and he threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Henry Souza. After Bailey scored from 5 yards out in the second quarter, he ran in a 2-point conversion to increase Acalanes’ lead to 21-3. Bailey scored twice on the ground, and Paul Kuhner added two more on a 54-yard run and a 14-yard catch from Jake Boselli. The only points scored by Northgate (0-6, 0-3) in the first three quarters were a pair of field goals by Lucas LeSieur, one of the best kickers in the Bay Area. Blayne Ballard’s 35-yard pass to Jack Kessler got the Broncos into the end zone. – Michael Lefkow

No. 25 Las Lomas 48, Concord 12

With their non-league victory over Concord, the Knights improved to 6-0. Both teams are members of the Diablo Athletic League, but they compete in different divisions: Las Lomas in the Foothills and Concord in the Valley. The Knights, who led 41-6 at halftime, ran only 23 plays the rest of the way. They totaled 338 yards of offense, with 259 yards on the ground. Sava Pouridis used his eight carries wisely, gaining 115 yards and scoring three touchdowns. Dylan Thomas completed four of his five passes for 79 yards and two touchdowns, one to Kaden Lagaya and one to Roman Mercado. Thomas’ touchdown passes were his ninth and tenth of the season. Concord suffered its fifth defeat in seven games. Concord had been shut out in each of their previous four losses. – Michael Lefkow

East Bay

Alhambra 71, Berean Christian 14

Beau Blau had a monster game for Alhambra, passing for six touchdowns and rushing for another as the Bulldogs dominated at home in Martinez. Luke Beaty had three touchdown receptions, while Lucas Pieper had one receiving and one rushing. Sutter Allio, Logan Thompson, and Cody Brown each had a touchdown, and Sylas Mankin, Sergio Tapia, and Michael Klapperich all had interceptions. Alhambra improved to 5-1 overall and 2-0 in the DAL Valley Division after kicker Mason Stinson went 9 for 9 on PATs. Berean Christian fell to 1-5-1, 0-1 in the league. Mt. Diablo will visit Alhambra on Friday. Berean Christian will have a week off before hosting Concord on Oct. 21. Darren Sabedra’s

Bishop O’Dowd 17, Tennyson 6

In their MVAL/WACC Foothill Division opener, the Dragons used a strong defense and just enough offense to even their overall record at 3-3. Bishop O’Dowd took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to Devin Wilson’s 3-yard pass to Colton Downing. Chase Borjon’s field goal made it 10-0 at halftime, and Owen Merritt added six more in the third. Tennyson finally broke through in the fourth quarter with a touchdown. Jaden Colbert, a sophomore, led O’Dowd with nine tackles, while Elliott Lewis and Ryan O’Neil each had eight. BOD continued its season-long pattern of winning after each loss against Tennyson, which has lost five of six games and is averaging only 13.7 points per game. The Dragons’ next game will be against Moreau Catholic on Friday. O’Dowd will play three straight road games before returning home on Nov. 3 to finish the regular season against San Leandro. – Michael Lefkow

Granada 21, Dublin 14

Granada bounced back from a lopsided loss to California with a thrilling EBAL Valley Division victory over Dublin. With 32 seconds remaining, Quinn Boyd’s QB sneak for a touchdown gave Granada a lead it would not relinquish. Dublin’s Jack Duncan tied the game with two touchdown passes to Garrett Esomonu, erasing a 14-0 deficit. To give Granada the early lead, Boyd threw touchdown passes to his brother, Mikey Boyd, and teammate Peyton Richards. “We just fought back on our last drive,” Granada coach Marc Moses said. Granada (5-2, 1-0) travels to Dougherty Valley on Friday, while Dublin (4-3, 0-1) plays at Livermore on Oct. 20. – Dycus, Joseph

Hayward 65, Mt. Eden 13

Hayward defeated Mt. Eden in MVAL/WACC Mission Division play, scoring seven rushing touchdowns. Kennedy Braziel rushed for three touchdowns and threw for one, and Maurice Hall scored three times on three carries. Mateaki Paongo rushed three times for 87 yards and one touchdown. Emmanuel Sega caught three passes for 72 yards, including Braziel’s only touchdown pass. Ayden Niuatoa, a defensive back, recovered two fumbles and returned one for a touchdown. On Friday, Hayward (4-2, 1-0) will host Encinal, while Mt. Eden (0-6, 0-1) will host Irvington. – Dycus, Joseph

James Logan 28, San Leandro 0

As the Colts battled back from an 0-4 start, Sammy Flores scored three touchdowns. They’ve won two straight and will play MVAL/WACC Foothill rivals Castro Valley and Tennyson in their next two games before wrapping up the regular season against Bishop O’Dowd and Moreau. San Leandro is 0-5 overall. Because of their 0-4 start against tough competition, the Colts will almost certainly need to win the Foothill Division to be eligible for the North Coast Section playoffs. In the NCS, league and division winners receive automatic bids to the playoffs, but Logan is a Division I team and would likely be seeded eighth, meaning a first-round match against De La Salle, Pittsburg, or San Ramon Valley. Coach Eddie Smith of James Logan said he hasn’t really discussed the playoffs with his team. – Michael Lefkow

Miramonte 35, Benicia 7

Miramonte’s DAL Foothill Division road victory over Benicia was not as easy as the final score suggested. Coach Jack Schram stated that his team is “limping into its bye week” due to injuries, but he praised LT Thomas Zwahlen, linebackers Gabe Savala and Andrew Bjornson, and wideout Mitch Riechenbach for stepping up when necessary. Even though starting quarterback Carson Blair was injured, Myles Bastani threw a touchdown and kept the offense moving. Brody Bornstein and Gabe Roman both had touchdown catches. Joe Shallat scored in the fourth quarter after blocking a screen pass, intercepting it, and returning it for a touchdown. And, in what has become a weekly occurrence, WR Jack Quinnild had a spectacular touchdown catch. On Friday, Benicia (1-5, 0-3) travels to Acalanes, while Miramonte (6-0, 3-0) hosts Acalanes on Oct. 20. — Dycus, Joseph

Moreau Catholic 49, Castro Valley 13

Moreau began MVAL/WACC Foothill Division play with a bang, cruising at home in Hayward behind a slew of standouts. Jayden Bryant had eight carries for 108 yards and three touchdowns, returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, and caught a 25-yard touchdown pass. Peyton Collins rushed nine times for 139 yards and a touchdown, and Jeremiah Charles completed 17 of 27 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns as the Mariners improved to 3-3, 1-0. Jalen Arnold also caught a touchdown pass and was a standout on defense. Moreau’s defensive players included Andrew Placido, Jeremiah Bailey, Lance Mitchell, and Miles Moore. The Mariners will play Bishop O’Dowd at home on Friday. On Friday, Castro Valley (2-4, 0-1) travels to James Logan. Darren Sabedra’s

Mt. Diablo 41, Ygnacio Valley 22

Herschel Turner of Mt. Diablo had a quiet game by his lofty standards. Turner had just three carries in a DAL Valley Division opener that the Red Devils dominated, but he turned them into 124 yards and two touchdowns, giving him 28 rushing touchdowns through six games. Mt. Diablo overcame an 8-7 first-quarter deficit against a Ygnacio Valley team that has not won a game since 2019. Jakorey Robinson rushed for two first-half touchdowns for Mt. Diablo. On Friday, YV (0-7, 0-1) hosts Concord, while Mt. Diablo (5-1, 1-0) travels to Alhambra. — Dycus, Joseph

St. Mary’s-Berkeley 42, Kennedy-Richmond 12

In this Tri-County Athletic League Stone Division game, sophomore quarterback Sutton Ralls threw for two touchdowns and Elijah Hines rushed for two six-pointers. Ralls completed a 47-yard pass to Marley Filson after finding TE Elliott Jennings for a 33-yard touchdown on a play-action pass. The visitors improved to 4-2 overall and won their TCAL opener with running touchdowns from Kamau Edwards and Marcus Hughes. Kennedy (4-2, 0-1) was led by Deondre Prim, who returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown and ran the ball seven times for 72 yards and a touchdown. – Michael Lefkow

Salesian 49, Pinole Valley 0

On Thursday, Salesian scored on every first-half possession en route to an easy win in both schools’ Tri-County Athletic League Rock Division opener. The Pride (5-1) led Pinole Valley (2-4), the CIF Division 7-AA state champions last season, 42-0 at halftime. Salesian quarterback Marco Turqueza ran 60 yards for a touchdown and threw two more touchdown passes, both to 6-foot-3 sophomore Carlton Perrilliat, one of the Pride’s top scorers. Ethan Soungpanya, Luis DeJesus, and Joseph Tarin also scored touchdowns. The Pride is competing for the No. 1 seed in Division VI of the North Coast Section playoffs against St. Vincent-Petaluma and Moreau Catholic. Moreau was Salesian’s lone defeat. The Pride will not face St. Vincent. Only El Cerrito appears capable of defeating Salesian in the remaining four games on its schedule. On November 4, Salesian will host El Cerrito. Pinole Valley might struggle to make the section playoffs. The Spartans are ranked eighth in D-VI, an eight-team bracket, according to Pinole Valley has four games left, none of which are against teams from Division V. – Mike Lefkow

Branham 66, Gilroy 20

Preston Conrad had five receptions for 98 yards and two touchdowns, while Brayden Hodges caught three of Lewis’ passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns. As the Bruins improved to 4-2, 1-0, Elias Antillion and Sebastian Golden each caught one touchdown pass. On Thursday, they will host Piedmont Hills. On Friday, Gilroy (0-6, 0-1) travels to Independence. Darren Sabedra’s

Burlingame 21, Mountain View 14

Angelo Medina rushed for over 200 yards and scored all three Burlingame touchdowns as the Panthers won the PAL Bay Division. Medina’s third touchdown in the fourth quarter broke a 14-14 tie. Burlingame totaled 367 yards of offense, 344 of which came on the ground. Arturo Hernandez scored on the ground for Mountain View, and Lex Silver caught a touchdown pass. On Friday, Burlingame (3-3, 1-1) hosts Wilcox, while Mountain View (3-3, 0-2) travels to Los Gatos. Glenn Reeves’

Carlmont 56, Santa Clara 28

Carlmont vented its angst over a 0-5 start with 331 yards on 17 carries and three touchdowns from Braedon Kumar, who had 297 yards the week before against Los Altos. He also connected on a 30-yard field goal. Cameron Booth had 125 yards and two touchdowns. Juan Olvera recovered a fumble, scooped it, and scored from more than 60 yards away. Santa Clara’s Matthew Conklin threw three touchdown passes to Kyree Brown, Jeremiah Karongo, and Mitchell Pacheco. “Carlmont came out ready to play, and we had no answer,” said Santa Clara head coach Nelson Gifford. On Thursday, Carlmont (1-5, 1-1 PAL El Camino) visits El Camino. On Friday, Santa Clara (2-4, 1-0) will host Los Altos. Glenn Reeves’

Capuchino 36, Milpitas 31

The Mustangs kept their unbeaten season hopes alive by rallying from two second-quarter deficits to win their sixth consecutive game. They are tied for first place in the PAL’s Ocean Division with a 2-0 record. Three first-period turnovers helped the visiting Mustangs fall behind 17-0 and 24-7, but Lucas Zayac led the comeback with three running touchdowns. The Mustangs trailed 24-14 at halftime, but a 1-yard run by Charlie Barfield put them ahead 27-24 going into the fourth quarter. Barfield scored again in the fourth quarter to put Capuchino ahead 33-24. Milpitas (4-2, 1-1 PAL Ocean) scored late to make it a one-score game after Sebastian Zuniga’s field goal extended the lead to 36-24. Milpitas jumped out to a 7-0 lead after intercepting a pass and returning it 71 yards. Alfredo Lugo’s fumble recovery and Adrian Chavez’s 25-yard run helped the Trojans extend their lead to 17-0. “We made a lot of errors on our end.” “We did it to ourselves,” Capuchino coach Jay Oca said of his team’s slow start. – Michael Lefkow

Cupertino 20, Gunn 13

Cupertino defeated Gunn in a PAL Lake Division game thanks to two rushing touchdowns by Arvin Hosseini. Dylan Zamoruev appeared unstoppable, finishing with seven quarterback hurries, four tackles for loss, and a strip sack. Malachi Perez and Kevin Xie combined for five pass breakups, and Justin Kim returned the forced fumble for a Cupertino touchdown. Gunn’s junior WR/SS Samuel Dellenbach scored a touchdown and also had an interception. Nolan Tok performed admirably at middle linebacker. Cameron Owen, RB for Gunn, scored on the ground. Cupertino (4-2, 3-0) will host Jefferson on Friday, while Gunn (2-4, 0-3) will host Lynbrook. – Dycus, Joseph

Del Mar 51, Evergreen Valley 0

After a defensive stop with 4:30 remaining, Fremont drove 80 yards in 11 plays for the game-winning touchdown with 35 seconds remaining. Running back Elijah Smith appeared to be on his way to a touchdown on the scoring play, but fumbled at the goal line. Fremont improved to 5-1 overall and 2-0 in the league after offensive guard Davis Scholten fell on the ball in the end zone. Los Altos dropped to 2-4, 1-1. Noah Beedon led Los Altos with 189 yards and three touchdown passes, all to wide receiver Drew Rafferty. RB Maxime Morelle added 82 yards on 18 carries for the Eagles.
