Tri-Valley football capsules

Week 3 previews….

No. 2 Monte Vista (2-0) at Castro Valley (0-2), 7 p.m.
Last week: Monte Vista beat Pittsburg 32-29; Castro Valley lost to Berkeley 27-6
Notes: The Trojans sputtered in the second half for the second-straight week and now get the unfortunate task of playing the No. 2 team in the East Bay Super Poll. Castro Valley has been outscored 35-6 in the second half this season and the defense has allowed 410.5 yards per game. RB Johnny Barbieri has emerged as the go-to carrier, averaging six yards per rush. The Mustangs needed a last-second field goal to knock off Pittsburg. Monte Vista is averaging 433 yards of offense per game, getting the bulk of their yardage through the air. QB Brett Nottingham has completed 68-percent of his passes and has thrown five TDs to just one INT. The defense has been shaky, giving up 333.5 yards per game. Castro Valley trailed Monte Vista 42-9 at halftime last year, eventually falling 48-9.

Bonagura prediction:

Monte Vista 52, Castro Valley 17
