Wow! We just got ourselves a great victory. We played a tough Bellarmine team who were #1 in nor cal and number #3 in the state. They played a great game. We just played better. We out hit them and we out played them. We just wanted it more. The game started off with a deep pass to a Bellarmine receiver for a big gain, but our defense prevailed and they stayed strong the whole night. Our offense had another strong game as usual. The Score was tied at 3 to 3 after both teams traded field goals. We scored with two unanswered touchdowns, to make it 17 to 3 with a couple of minutes left before half time. Bellarmine anwserd with a touchdown of there own to make it 17 to 10 at the half. In the second half Bellermine scored a touchdown to make it 17 to 16,but they miss the extra point. Which made a huge moementum swing. We went on to score the next two touchdowns and left only less then 2 minutes on the clock for the Bells to try to catch up. The Final Score ended up being 31 to 23. Bellarmine played hard and a physical game. We just got the best of them on that night. We adavnced to 3-1 in league and 4-3 overall. We are now in a four way tie with Bellarmine,Valley Christan, and SacredHeart.

This Saturday on November 1, 2008 we will be facing the St. Ignatius Wildcats. The game will start at 2:00 p.m. This is a very important game for us. We are coming off our biggest win of the year in defeating the Bellarmine Bells. That victory puts us in a 4 way tie for first place with Sacred Heart Cathedral, Valley Christian and Bellarmine. The Wildcats are coming off a victory over Riordan. They are 4-3 and are in position for a CCS playoff spot. We need to stay on course of our season goals, one of which is a WCAL Title. This game will show how much we have matured as a team as well as how focused we are. Come out and show your support. Go Padres!
I'm sorry I have not posted my thoughts on the Bellarmine game yet. It was a big game for us and I have been busy with school and getting ready for SI. I'll try to have my thoughts on the game tonight.

On Saturday October 18th, we defeated the St. Francis Lancers at Frietas Field. The lancers came into the game tied with us at 1-1 in league play. The game was close in the first half with us leading 14-3 at halftime. We committed several penalties and turnovers which stopped several drives. The Lancers converted one of their drives into 3 points. The second half we played better and were able to shut them out the rest of the game. They fought hard and did not make things easy for us. We pulled away in the second half outscoring them 21-0 for the final score of 35-3. The best part of this win was that our defense played great. This gives us a big boost going into our game with Bellarmine.
On Friday October 24th at 7:00 p.m. we will be taking on Bellarmine College Preparatory at San Jose City College. This will be our biggest game of the season as it may have a direct impact on who wins the WCAL league Title. Bellarmine enters the game ranked #1 in Northern California and in first place in the league with a 3-0 record. We are 2-1 in league play. A win will give us atleast a tie for first in the league with Bellarmine. This should be a great game and one you don't want to miss.

On Saturday October 18, 2008 we will be facing the St. Francis Lancers on our home field. This will be a game against not only a league opponent but a storied rival. They are comming off a big win against SI and we want to continue our momentum towards achieving our season goals. The game is at 1:00 and should be a good one.
On Friday night of October 10, 2008, we beat Sacred Heart Cathedral. This was a very tough win for us as we were playing in our second league game and we could not afford to go 0-2 in league play. The game was close 13-7 after Sacred Heart scored with about 40 seconds left before halftime. We recieved the kickoff and scored on the next play to give us a 20-7 lead before halftime and the momentum leading into the second half. We went on to have a great second half and pulled away for a 41 to 14 win. Sacred heart was a very talented team but this was a game where we finally played a complete four quarters and we showed what we can do when that happens. As always in the WCAL each week is a challenge. Next week we take on the St. Francis Lancers at 1:00 @ Frietas Field. St. Francis is one of our biggest rivals and this should be a great event. Come out and show your support.
This week I have one new school showing intrest. It is the University Of Oregon Ducks. They also play in the Pac-10 Confrence. I heard it is a fine educational institution and has nice atheltic facilities. I also understand that they have a great surronding community. I look forword to the upcomeing recruiting procces involving the Oregon Ducks.

On Friday October 10th 2008, we will be playing Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory in a home game at Frietas Field. This will be a big game for us as we will be trying to even our league record at 1-1 and staying on course for our pre season objectives. This will be an exciting game and I hope you can come out and support us. If you can not attend I will be having a post following the game on Saturday.
On Saturday night of October 4, 2008, we lost another tough game to Valley Christian. This was a very tough loss for us as we were playing in our season league opener and failed to win an important game against one of the league favorites. Both teams scored on it's first possessions and showed why they are two of the top teams in the league. The score was 16-7 at half time after VC scored on a late second quarter touchdown with seconds left aided by a penalty and great catch. We cut the lead to 16-14 on the last play of the 3rd Quarter and could not get any closer than two points the rest of the game. I am still confident that we will be one of the teams to beat by seasons end. Our offense and defense is getting better each game and we are really practicing hard. It will be nice to get back home in front of our fans. Our schedule has been one of the most difficult schedules that any team had to face. We face another test on Friday versus Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory of San Francisco. This will be a big game for us and we know SHC will be ready as well. Expect a great game!
