Bishop O’Dowd’s Miroglio out against Encinal

I talked with Bishop O’Dowd football coach Hardy Nickerson tonight. Dragons quarterback Dominic Miroglio will miss his second straight game due to a shoulder injury.
Backup quarterback Kevin King suffered a concussion against Sacred Heart Cathedral on Sept. 14, and he’s got to get doctor’s clearance before he plays, Nickerson said.
Sophomore Chris Hagmaier will play quarterback after starting in last week’s game against Arroyo. The Dragons travel to face Encinal on Oct. 5 in the West Alameda County Conference-Foothill Division opener for both teams. The kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. It is a matchup between two 2011 league champions — Bishop O’Dowd won the Hayward Area Athletic League and Encinal was the Bay Shore Athletic League champion.
