People on here talk very highly about pitt when they have alot of personal foul penalties. I really think Victor Galli is not a good x’s and 0′s coach. Didnt even pass the ball the whole game and in the end and it bit pitt in the butt because they needed to pass when they had the ball but they didnt have any shotgun formation at the end of the game. Terrible play calling on his part. Very smart for freedom to know to punt them the ball and force pitt to throw.
Another thing pitt sacked dante mayes in the 2nd or 3rd quarter a pitt player punched him at the end of the play in the stomach. The pitt coaches acted like it was legal to punch a player on the opposing team. Are you kidding me? Victor Galli was sticking up for his player? why? This is the first time i seen a coach encourage that foul play.
Pitt was getting away with stepping on the opposing players while trying to block a FG. That is illegal in H.S. Football to do that. For some strange reason the refs were not calling that.
Alhambra 24 Dublin 7…..The Bulldogs had a tough time running against Dublin’s middle line, but it was a 52 yard pass and a 80 yard pass with a 70 yard run by Poydule and a field goal that did Dublin in…The Bulldogs had two TD’s called back and lost two more chances and maybe more for more scoring due to a excess amount of pentalities….
Like I said Piedmont is a very tough place to play. They play twice as hard at home. Can’t believe you Hornet followers dismissed them as an easy win.Serves you right to keep losing games & believing you can just turn the corner & put together wins. I guess that Encinal loss is one of those losses that can end a season. The coaches have lost their team.
Cal beats SRV for the 5th time in the last 6 meetings. This was very similar to last week’s MV game, as neither team could stop the other. Cal was lucky enough to have the ball last and was able to just take a knee deep in SRV territory to run out the final minute and a half. Karris Johnson showing once again he is the best back in the EBAL, rushing for 347 yards with 4 TDs including an 80 yard burst. Cal ran for 475 yards against the Wolves.
Birse looked great for SRV and moved the ball at will over the last 3 quarters, but SRV just ran out of time after falling behind early and never were able to get the lead. SRV had 2 inopportune fumbles that were both recovered by the Grizz, one deep in Cal territory and the other inside their own 10 which were back breakers. Great game to watch if you weren’t a defensive coach.
So there are 4 teams in the EBAL now with 1 loss, Cal, MV, SRV & Foothill. Of the 4, Cal has what would be considered the easiest road with Livermore next week and Granada to finish out, but those 2 aren’t as easy as they sound as Cal lost to Granada last season and only beat the Cowboys by a point.
MV beat Cal head to head, but still has to face AV and then finish with SRV in the rivalry game, so their road looks to be harder than Cal’s. Foothill also faces both SRV and AV, and has a trip to Livermore in between. SRV still must face Foothill and MV, probably the hardest road of the 4. Buckle up for some more offensive battles in the closing weeks of the EBAL season.

ARE U HUMBLE YET
Tennyson and Arroyo was a good game last night. Hard hitting football. Tennyson have some good RB’s and Arroyo Defense was fast! Tennyson defense was fast too! Just a good game. Would love to see the D2 match up with Arroyo vs Alameda. Size vs Speed
I wouldn’t put Encinal on that list. Rebuilding year. Very competetive. They are playing all D-1 schools. Other then top 3 in the D3 play-offs Encinal won’t see athletes equal to B-High, Rodriguez, Vallejo, CV & Hayward. Have them & Tennyson switch schedules they are exactly the same. Might even beat Acalanes.
Tough one jets keep battling doesnt look good for berkeley come ncs struggle on offense vs a small young school they will definitly be one n done. Damn alameda women those bsal teams are tough 0-2 vs them huh. Didnt san lorenzo beat piedmont?!?!
Reggie, ok I will take them off if they beat CV.
Remember next 3 games are weak teams especially SL and Hayward. Jets got a forfeit against Castlemont.
Losing to lousy BHS is no accomplishment. Beating a lousy Alameda team is no big deal except it was the island bowl. Encinal lost to Serra 56-07. Vallejo was a terrible team in recent years, no big win here. Now if the Jets win the next 3 they finish with 7 wins and get a playoff berth. That would be a good season for a challenged team. They have only 97 pts. scored in 8 games. They could surprise a team or two in playoffs but the offense has to come alive real quick.
I make no point for Encinal being a good team. But B-High is D1 Rodriguez is a D1 team. Put them both in he D3 16 team pool where do they stack up? I heard from Deer Valley coaches that Rodriguez had some very good looking kids. B-high plays d3 where do they stack up? Top 3 top 4. Guess we’ll find out when they play BOD. Too bad no EC match up this year. If B-High is top 4 EHS played them too OT. Read into it what you will. With these A & B leagues & all A league teams playing tough non-leagues its hard to judge. Don’t give teams like Tennyson any respect for playing nobody.
Rodriquez was good for a couple of years with the Riggins boys and others, they had some div 1 players. BHS is a shambles for many years.
You are correct- some of these B teams are going to make the playoffs and again correct they are not playing anyone. However, some of these teams have been no good for years and they couldn’t continue to take the beatings from bigger schools. There are div 3 and div 4 teams that I have seen which could beat div 1 teams, depends on the program and talent level for the year- this year not too many div 3 or 4 beating div 1 – but Marin Catholic and Cardinal Newman could beat a lot of div 1 teams, in fact most of them.
seat gets hotter every week coach perry keeps getting it done while moyer continues making excuses. i told you gardner at qb 70yds to the house but he’s never been given a fair shot at the job i wonder why?
Noticed two things from your list, Lad sure has won a boat load of games, wow. A reminder of really how great he has been as if we didnt already know and Sweeney’s the only one who has been at a public high school for all his wins. To do it at a public is equally amazing. If you divide Sweeneys 214 wins coming into this season by 24 completed seasons you get an averavge of 8.91 wins per year. Two coaches, two pretty remarkable standards.
EB Football Coach – good point. DV did crush Antioch. I saw a couple of their other games – College Park and Liberty both played DV tougher than Antioch did. In fact, the only team that DV beat worse than Antioch was Rodriguez. This week should be a great game with DV and Pitt, but don’t be surprised if DV takes it to the Pirates. They have the d-line to stop Pitt’s run and the speed and offensive explosive ability to put up major points. The QB is flat out getting it done.
In DIv 3 there are currently 9 teams undefeated in their leagues. The top 6 teams according to calpreps and then Tennyson, Hercules, and Petaluma. Hercules and Petaluma aren’t even in the top 16. Analy will knock Petaluma off, but Hercules could sneak in as a League Champion. They shouldn’t be seeded higher than 11 so they would still have to play away, unless CN loses to RC or Windsor and finds themselves in the #3 seed and Hercules gets #14. Wouldn’t that suck Gil?
Somebody tell me why Encinal fans are crying about playing in the A league. The A league is not much better than the B league. Give tenorio credit for what? San Leandro, Berkeley and Hayward are terrible this year. Bishop O’Dowd lost their QB, Castro Valley is ok, but this league ain’t the EBAL.
This week in the WACC
Piedmont @ Tennyson
If Tennyson can nip the penalty bug this ones a blowout
Tennyson 28 Piedmont 10
Arroyo @ San Lorenzo @ Arroyo
Arroyo bounces back after a tough loss to Tennyson. How much does SLZ have left in the tank after being physically abused by Mt. Eden last week. Also Arroyo has owned this cross town rivalry as of late.
Arroyo 24 San Lorenzo 6
Mt. Eden @ Alameda
It appears Mt. Eden has found itself as a physical run heavy team with just enough of a passing game now to move the chains when need be. Alameda seems to be trying to find themselves still since there loss to the Jets. Mt. Eden beat up SLZ , SLZ beat up on Piedmont , and Piedmont out lasted Alameda.
Mt. Eden 24 Alameda 13
Encinal @ Castro Valley
Encinal continues to struggal. Perhaps they blew there wad on Alameda. Castro Valley is easily the 2nd best team in the division and i see them running the table from here on out
Encinal 20 Castro Valley 36
Bishop O’Dowd @ Hayward
Hayward’s only shot at winning is to knock King out of the game and get the JV QB back under center
Bishop O’Dowd 42 Hayward 12
San Leandro @ Berkeley
Since beginning league play Berkeley has found ways to win. And San Leandro is still looking for that elusive 1 st victory
San leandro 14 Berkeley 13
Who is the Encinal fan? All I know is Barnes, Smith, and Moyer all asked to be put in the “B” league while Tenorio chose to go up. For that he gets respect.
You say the league’s aren’t that different? You think Tennyson could hang with DV? You think Arroyo could put up 34 points against Cal? You’re right, it’s not the EBAL, but there’s a HUGE gap between the two leagues.
Maybe there should be an intraleague playoff where the teams play each other based on their rankings. Tennyson vs O’dowd? CV vs Arroyo? Berkeley vs Piedmont? Encinal vs Alameda? Hayward vs Mt. Eden? San Leandro vs SLZ?
That’s not even fair. In fact, I’d take the #6 Foothill team against the #1 Shoreline team. San Leandro would stomp a mudhole in Tennyson.
Don’t be angry because your team can’t get it done after moving from a bad league to a worse one. Sure, the WAAC Foothill isn’t the EBAL or BVAL, no one is saying it is, but it’s beyond your level.
The Wacc b-league division is a big joke and all those teams would lose to all 6 teams in the a-league guarenteed. Compare the schedules of the a-league to the b-league and you will see why records are the way they are. Anyone who says Encinal is no good is mistaken. If you have played them you know you’re in for a battle for 4 quarters. I though we would win by at least 2 touchdowns but that team is tough. I know because I seen it with my own eyes. Joey has those kids playing hard and they stood strong against us even though they hella young.
Island Chief just the man I wanted to talk too. Whats going on with the Hornets is the Encinal loss still effecting them? You were so cocky thinking you would win your last 4 were those Piedmont boys tough like I said? Alameda Piedmont old school rivalry.
What about the fact that Hayward and Tennyson were originally scheduled to play a week 0 game at Tennyson. Hayward at the last second decided they wanted to play at home (sunset) instead of playing at Tennyson like they mutually agreed. Hayward instead pulls out of the game and schedules Ygnacio Valley instead. Until 2010, Tennyson has never made the playoffs so to say they haven’t done anything in the playoffs is premature. In 2010 they were 4-6 and played #1 Ricky Lloyd-led Concord in the first round then to #5 Miramonte last year.
My nephew plays freshman at Alameda he told me varsity took the jv qb today at practice. What about this ernest kid i’ m readimg about ? Var has no backups ? Whats goimg on over there. Should i pull my nephew ?
All those teams (with the exception of Alameda) play the better WCAL, EBAL, DVAL, and BVAL teams in non league. None of the A league teams are punks and I see them all getting better through the years and in the playoffs because they all put themselves to the test.
I walk into the break room at my job and someone posts the Piedmont score on the bulletin board. I come on this blog and Encinal fans are posting lies about how we begged are way into the b division. We get accused of being cocky, We will win out. We will make the playoffs. We will go further than Encinal. At the end of the season, thats all that matter. Alameda is better than Encinal. The Island bowl 97 yard run was a miracle was a fluke. We dominated the ame. Could have blown the game wide open in the 2nd half.
Encinal fans believe Tenorio should get a trophy for opting up into the foothill. Saying kemp begged down. I talked to a few coaches and they say ithe divisions were based on enrollment and the success of a program. I checked on cal preps and gathered this.
Berkeley 3239, DI ncs playoffs every year
Castro Valley 2937, DI playoffs last few years
San Leandro 2731, league titles
Hayward, 1645, league titles and made playoffs many times
Encinal, 1269, league titles and playoffs last 5 years in a row, ncs d3 title game 2 of 3 years
Bishop O’Dowd, 1146, league titles and many playoffs under perenon 200 wins
Arroyo, 1899, playoffs every year
Mt.Eden 1,861, no playoffs in years, but improving under perenon
Alameda, 1855, lost in the 1st round of playoffs in 2 of last 3 years
San Lorenzo, 1,624, no playoffs in years
Tennyson, 1332, made playoffs the last 2 years
Piedmont, 827, made playoffs last year, inventors of the A-11
If its based on enrollment then Arroyo and Mt. Eden should have gone up before we did.
If its based on success than Arroyo should move up before we do.
If its based on both enrollment and success then they got it right. So stop crying.
The Foothill division only has 2 good teams: Castro Valley and Bishop O’Dowd. The rest would lose 2 to 3 games in the foothill division.
@island chief- Shut up alameda high is not better then Encinal you guys lost to piedmont thats pretty sad bro. And you guys will not make playoffs and Encinal will go to round 2 in the playoffs thats the highest they can go. I hate encinal but all i know you is not better then them. They should move the JV head coach up to be the head coach for varsity he don’t run what kemper runs the JV head coach is way better then Kemper the JV head coach wins game lol he blitz all day against encinal Offence thats why they won 56-7 the jv coach is way better then Kemper.
island chief you are a complete loser. How are you better than encinal? Your 0-2 vs bsal teams you clown! I hope you do make the playoff get cotate or concord maybe northgate that would be sweet. Are you even playing northgate next year? I hope you run the table but it aint sayn much vs mt.eden slz arroyo but arroyo will smack you guys in the mouth. Believe what you want but moyer knows when he goes to bed he asked down. Probably just didnt think his team could hang with what he had coming back i guess.
