The San Leandro High tennis team beat Castro Valley, 4-3, last Thursday afternoon in a close battle that went down to the final match on the Pirates home courts.

Castro Valley took all three doubles matches, but the Pirates won the four singles matches.

It all came down to the No. 3 singles as Jeanette Yee of San Leandro beat Gabby Zakas of Castro Valley 7-6 (5), 6-2.

The last time the two teams played each other, Zakas won, and the Trojans won the match 4-3.

“I think this time I was a little more focused,” Yee said after the match.

103014s2Yee said she also didn’t undercut the ball as much this time, hitting more shots with topspin.

In the No. 1 singles match, Jenna Dizon of San Leandro beat Hailey Agulay of Castro Valley 6-3, 6-3.

Dizon is the freshman class president as well as the Pirates No. 1 singles player. She said when she was 10 years old she decided she wanted to become a pro tennis player.

“Tennis and school are basically my life,” Dizon quipped. In the classroom, Dizon said she likes science, but she’s thinking about trying drama, too.

In the No. 2 singles match, Patti Castillo of San Leandro beat Alexa Bucciarelli of Castro Valley 6-3, 6-2 in a match that had the longest rallies of the day. Both players are good at getting the ball back.

Castillo, in her second year on the Pirates tennis team, keeps it simple. “I just try to get the ball over,” she said.

In the No. 4 singles match, Diana Rodriguez of San Leandro beat Aditi Gupte of Castro Valley 6-0, 6-4.

Rodriguez said she let her guard down a little in the second set. But she got back on track to win the match.

Castro Valley won all three doubled matches. In No. 1 doubles, Nicole Bucciarelli and Brianna Wong of Castro Valley beat Alice Chin and Lauren Nguyen of San Leandro 6-0, 6-0.

In No. 2 doubles, Angela Ho and Caroline Yu of Castro Valley beat Jaime Wong and Sharon Phan of San Leandro 6-2, 6-0.

In No. 3 doubles, Morgan Adams and Riley Powers of Castro Valley beat Lily Gee and Leandra Lumugai of San Leandro 6-0, 6-1.

Pirates prepare for next opponent, Bishop O’Dowd, on Friday

102314sBy Jim Knowles • San Leandro Times

San Leandro High’s offense is improving each week as the Pirates rolled to a 35-6 win at Encinal in Alameda on Friday night.

The Pirates will need the offensive power this Friday at Burrell Field when Bishop O’Dowd comes to town, a rivalry that’s always a big game.

San Leandro led all the way at Encinal, taking an early lead when Pirates running back Ronald Thomas broke through to the end zone from 5 yards out, his first of two TDs. His second score came on a 32-yard run.

“The line is going good now, they’re opening the holes,” Thomas said after the game. “We’re getting better. We’re getting ready for O’Dowd now.”

Sonny Sowles also scored a pair of touchdowns for the Pirates on runs of 35 yards and 15 yards. And Pirates quarterback Derrick Purvis scored on a keeper from the 11-yard line.

San Leandro’s reliable kicker Ivan Flores booted the extra point after every touchdown.

The Jets scored once when wide receiver Brian Clinkscale broke loose from the 35-yard line for a touchdown. Otherwise, the Pirates defense held back the Jets much of the night.

“The offensive line is getting better. The young guys are coming along,” said San Leandro head coach Brad Bowers.

Bowers said getting the team fired up for O’Dowd is never a problem.

“We’re always up for O’Dowd. Emotion isn’t an issue,” Bowers said. “We need to get these guys executing plays and we’ll be all right.”

This week, San Leandro hosts Bishop O’Dowd on Friday at 7 p.m. at Burrell Field.

San Lorenzo High fans erupted in the final minute as the Rebels rallied to beat crosstown rival Arroyo, 28-24, on Saturday on the Rebels home field.

By Jim Knowles • San Leandro Times

The San Lorenzo vs. Arroyo rivalry is just as intense as ever as a full house witnessed the Rebels pull out a 28-24 win on their home field on Saturday afternoon with an interception and return for a touchdown.

San Lorenzo cornerback Martin Peña stepped in front of an Arroyo receiver to pick off a pass and took it all the way down the right sideline to a touchdown that gave the Rebels the win.

“Coach told me they were going to throw a quick out,” Peña said. “At first I just wanted to knock the ball down, but then I got it so I took off for the end zone.”

Peña’s fellow cornerback Bejour Wilson picked off another pass to nail down the win. As the final minute wound down the entire student body of San Lorenzo was down off the bleachers against the fence surrounding the field.

“This is the best feeling in my high school life right here, man!” Peña said.

The big win against the crosstown rivals, “The Helmet Game,” came on homecoming week. The stands were decorated with bunting and signs. Each class marched in front of the stands at halftime, dressed in their themes for homecoming.

101614s1The celebration came after an uphill climb for the Rebels, since Arroyo took a 16-0 lead in the first quarter.

Arroyo running back Eric Tafeamalii plowed into the end zone to give the Dons a 14-0 lead, and then quarterback Devin Delatorre made the 2-point conversion on a keeper.

The Rebels got on the board before halftime on a 20-yard touchdown catch by Peña on a pass from quarterback Kevin Mosi, who added the 2 point conversion on a pass to Wilson.

But then in the third quarter, Dons increased their lead to 22-8 in the third quarter on catches by receiver John Schherrer, another touchdown by Tafeamalii, and a catch for the 2-point conversion by Davon Dawson.

San Lorenzo came back with a 30-yard touchdown catch by Peña. And then, following a recovered fumble, a touchdown by running back Ramiah Marshall to cut the Dons lead to 24-22.

That set the stage for Peña interception and return for a TD, and a big homecoming celebration at San Lorenzo.

This week, San Lorenzo hosts Alameda on Friday at 4:30 p.m. Arroyo hosts Piedmont on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

101614s5By Greg Benson • San Leandro Times

Living in the trenches of the NFL is not a very glamorous life. It’s where all the blood, sweat and tears gather in a trough of tribulation.

On every down, these massive linemen go to battle, clashing in a contest of wills.

Standing just to the west of this clash of titans is the Oakland Raiders new interim head coach Tony Sparano. Since his college days starting at center for the New Haven Chargers, Sparano earned his chops as an O-line commander.

While he may not possess the physical attributes of today’s linemen, he embodies the mighty mindset and gritty determination it takes to play on the line.

With the departure of Dennis Allen as head coach, Sparano is taking charge of a Raiders team struggling to find a way to win.

After a competitive effort against the division-leading San Diego Chargers, Sparano expressed pride in his team eventhough the game ended with the Raiders suffering their fifth loss of the season 31-28.

“We didn’t walk into this place here today, in front of our fans, to play a good game, to play a competitive game,” said Sparano. “We came here to win a football game today.”

The Raiders came out quick with a 77-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Derek Carr to wide receiver Andre Holmes in the third play from scrimmage.

They were able to hold the lead of 28-24 into the fourth quarter until the Chargers scored the game-winning touchdown with just under two minutes to go.

The Raiders still had a chance to either tie the game with a field goal or win with a touchdown. Carr, with 1:20 left on the clock took a shot deep to Brice Butler, but was intercepted at the 5 yard line.

“In our league there’s no moral victories. But I did tell them I was proud of them. This group, for what they’ve been through here the last two weeks, came out today and played with a lot of energy, a lot of passion… We’re going to continue to work our tails off and get better.”

Next chance for the Raiders to taste victory is this Sunday versus the Arizona Cardinals.

One Big Play The Difference: 14-10 Liberty PDF  | Print |  E-mail
Thursday, 02 October 2014 18:43

100214s1By Jim Knowles • San Leandro Times

San Leandro High played a good defensive game against Liberty High of Brentwood, except for a couple misplays that made the difference at Burrell Field on Friday night.

It was all tied up at halftime, 7-7, and in the second half the Pirates took a 10-7 lead on a field goal by Ivan Flores.

But the one play the Pirates would have liked to have back was when Willie Williams took the ball 60 yards down the left sideline to put Liberty ahead with the final score of 14-10.

The Pirates appeared to have a big play on the drive that ended with a field goal, as running back Norman Haddix took off on a 40-yard dash to the end zone, but Haddix was knocked out of bounds on the 2-yard line. The Pirates had to settle for the field goal, but at the time it gave them the lead.

That San Leandro drive was set up when Troy Hearne recovered a Liberty fumble at midfield.

“The defense played their butts off tonight,” said Pirates head coach Brad Bowers. “Just a couple little mistakes made all the difference.”

The Pirates are also playing without a few key players who are sidelined with injuries, including quarterback Stephen Johnson who has a fractured bone in his foot from an injury at practice. It’s still not known if Johnson will be back for San Leandro’s next game at Berkeley on October 10.

100214s2Backup quarterback Anthony Onciano has done a good job filling in for Johnson, improving each week.

Onciano guided the Pirates down the field in the final minutes to the Lions 30 yard line but he was sacked to end the drive.

The San Leandro High band cooked on Friday night, laying down some classics, including “Smoke on the Water” that had the stands rockin’.

Liberty had their big play on William’s touchdown run, but the pressing question remains: Shouldn’t this school, at least once a game, pull off the old Statue of Liberty Play?

San Leandro has a bye week and the Pirates next game will be at Berkeley High on Friday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m.

Raiders Hit Rock Bottom PDF  | Print |  E-mail

092514sBy Greg Benson • San Leandro Times

Just three games into the season and the Oakland Raiders have already hit rock bottom.

After back-to-back losses, one worse than the other, the Raiders can’t seem to find a way to win.

In the season opener, The New York Jets racked up 433 total yards against the inconsistent play of the Raiders defense.

Offensively, Oakland struggled for yardage — only getting into the Red Zone once. If not for two New York turnovers, the final score may have been more lopsided than the 19-14 end result.

In the home opener versus the Houston Texans, the Raiders fell flat on their face mask.

Houston rolled over the Raiders, leading 27-0 into the fourth quarter. Veteran safety Charles Woodson was visibly dismayed on the sidelines.

“We suck,” said a frank Woodson in the locker room after the game. “That’s as blunt as I can put it. For whatever reason, defensively we just won’t stop people, especially early in games. Every drive, every first drive, their team is able to go and get points, and today it happened all day.”

Faced with a season quickly fading to black, the Raiders responded with a spirited effort against New England in week three.

The defense held Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in check throughout much of the game, applying pressure on passing plays and limiting rushers to 76 yards.

“No doubt about it, it was a much better effort,” said Woodson after the 16-9 loss. “We still came up short which is disappointing for us because we all fought our hearts out.”

Next up for the Raiders are the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

San Lorenzo got on the board in the fourth quarter when Kevin Patino caught a touchdown pass from Ramiah Marshall.

Marshall also led the Rebels in rushing with 75 yards on the ground.

Raiders Redux, Part One PDF  | Print |  E-mail
Thursday, 04 September 2014 13:33

090414s5By Greg Benson • San Leandro Times

From the time General Manager Reggie McKenzie first set foot on the shores of Bay Farm Island, a sense of great change filled the air space above Oakland Raiders headquarters.

For two years, McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen methodically stripped the Oakland Raiders franchise down to its studs. And, under a black cloud of construction dust, the team faultered with back-to-back 4-12 seasons.

With a few off-season misfires and some unfortunate injuries, the Raiders struggled to find an identity and form any consistent competitive edge.

With new majority owner Mark Davis taking over for his legendary father, Al Davis, time is running out for this reconstruction to show some better results.

One upside to the two-year deconstruction phase is the enormous amount of cushion the Raiders found under the salary cap.

By jettisoning some budget-busting contracts and signing shorter cap-conscious deals, the Raiders filled their NFL wallet with free agent dollars this offseason. Time for a shopping spree!

March, known for its madness,  marked the most active month for the Raiders reconstruction — signing 12 veteran free-agent starters to fill pressing needs on both defense and offense… all in less than 20 days.

The free-agent frenzy began on March 12 with the acquisition of offensive tackle Austin Howard — a 330-pound pocket protector from the New York Jets.

Next, defensive coordinator Jason Tarver added two new pro bowlers to his defensive box set — defensive end Justin Tuck from the New York Giants and linebacker LaMarr Woodley from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tuck may be approaching the sunset of his 10-year career at age 31, but you’ve got to love a guy who put Tom Brady on his back four times to help take two Super Bowls from the Patriots (2007 and 2011) — a team Raiders fans love to hate.

Woodley, at age 29, is another sackmaster with a long, loyal career. These two, when “activated,” will give the Raiders a much-needed boost in passer pressure.

Tarver and his defense continued to benefit from a free-agent windfall with the addition of 49er corner backs Tarell Brown and teammate Carlos Rogers (who came in two weeks later) from across the bay. That same day, the Raiders also brought in Antonio Smith, a veteran defensive lineman from the Houston Texans.

The spending spree continued with San Jose State star and Green Bay Packer wide receiver James Jones, and offensive lineman Kevin Boothe, who returns to the Raiders after seven seasons and two Super Bowl Championships with the New York Giants.

Jones adds some much-needed experience to a young receiving corps and Boothe is a solid backup that can play anywhere on the O-line, even center.

Two days later, the Raiders signed offensive lineman Donald Penn. This guy lives at left tackle. He has started 108 consecutive games at that position for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the third longest current streak among all active tackles in the NFL entering 2014.

Now it was time for the Raiders to address their most pressing need. Who is going to lead this reborn team out of the blackness?

At that time, March 21, and up until this week, that man was quarterback Matt Schaub from the Houston Texans.

Schaub, now in his 11th season, showed great poise in the pocket and produced big numbers in Houston. That is up until last year. His accuracy and timing seemed to drop off, along with the O-line’s pass protection, falling out of favor with the fans and the franchise.

Throughout the preseason, Schaub seemed to struggle with finding a rhythm in his new offense. Timing was off, receivers were dropping balls, and linemen gave way under pressure.

In his two preseason starts, Schaub ended up completing 24 of 47 attempts for 218 yards, with one interception and no touchdowns — pretty much ineffective.

A week after the Schaub trade with Houston, the Raiders found a firey little free agent down in Jacksonville. Maurice Jones-Drew returned to his Bay Area roots of Antioch and the storied De La Salle Spartans.

While his numbers may have dropped off a bit in his last two years with the Jaguars, this nine-year veteran back still has the juice to turn it upfield.

He’ll be splitting time with Darren McFadden in the backfield which should keep both backs fresh through the season and help alleviate injury concerns.

“We both can do it all,” said Jones-Drew after the 27-26 win over the Detroit Lions. “We’ll have a fresh body in there all the time. That’s going to be tough for defenses to stop.”

Add in the free-agent signings of Green Bay defensive end C.J. Wilson and cornerback Carlos Rogers at the end of March, and there you have the Raiders version of the “Dirty Dozen.”

090414s7While all of these guys are on the downslope of their career trajectory, averaging just over 30 years of age, the Raiders have always been known to target veterans that still have something to prove and enough gas in the tank to light it up. So, stand back Raiders fans. This explosive experiment has the potential to ignite some greatness…

And, yet, as we’ve seen in the past, the experiment can go horribly wrong.

It takes just the right amount of chemistry, mixed with a little luck and a whole lot of enthusiasm, for it all to come together as a winning formula.

So, for that immeasurable ingredient of enthusiasm, the Raiders next turned to the 2014 NFL Draft.

Having the fifth overall pick proved very fortuitous. In selecting Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack, the Raiders instantly solidified their linebacking corps. This young ballhawk tore up the Mid-American Conference, setting the NCAA record for forced fumbles at 16.

Mack received extensive playing time in the preseason and showed good progress as both a tackler and pass rusher.

Tarver will undoubtedly find some creative ways to utilize this gifted strongside linebacker’s skills. Whether it be with his hand in the dirt rushing the passer, dropping back in coverage or stepping up to stop the run, Mack has the skills to make an immediate impact.

090414s4The next Raiders selection in the draft was a huge surprise. Not in that it was Derek Carr, but in the fact that he was still available at number 36.

McKenzie and his scouts loved this guy. He was pegged to be the future of the Raiders at quarterback early on. But it just wasn’t certain he would be there in the second round.

Carr’s college credentials are very impressive. He established 27 school records and 21 Mountain West Conference records over his college career, including yards (12,482), completions (1,086) and touchdowns (113). He also led the nation in total offense (5,199), total passing  yards (5,082) and passing touchdowns (50) as a senior at Fresno State in 2013.

Through training camp, he studied the playbook like a mad man, prepped for every game, and showed progress at every stage.

When Schaub experienced tendonitis in his elbow and was unable to practice after the 31-21 loss to Green Bay, Carr was able to step in as the starter for the final preseason game.

Don’t worry, it’s only the defending champions, the Seattle Seahawks.

Carr capitalized on the opportunity with an impressive performance, completing 11 of his 13 passes for 143 yards, and 3 touchdowns. And much of that was against the first-string defense of the defending champs.

“You want to play against the best, and they’ve got the ring to prove it,” said Carr after the 41-31 preseason win over Seattle. “They fly around. They’re fast. It was nice to play against them and I look forward to playing against them in the future.”

Little did Carr know at the time, but his wish was coming true as he spoke. A few short days later, Carr was named the starting quarterback for the Raiders over Matt Schaub.

Carr and the Raiders play Seattle in week nine.

The San Leandro High football team, playing without starting quarterback Stephen Johnson, lost to Foothill High, 30-12, on Friday night at Burrell Field.

Johnson will be out of action for several weeks after his foot was fractured in practice this past week. Nevertheless, San Leandro got on the board first with a touchdown run by fullback Norman Haddix for a 6-0 lead.

But after that it was all Foothill as quarterback Kyle Kearns threw three touchdown passes and kicker Daniel Rodriguez made three field goals.

San Leandro recovered two fumbles but the Pirates gave up five interceptions that put the brakes on the offense.

090414s2Later in the fourth quarter, San Leandro scored its second touchdown on a 40-yard catch by Reuben Baker from quarterback Anthony Onciano, who completed three of nine passes. Starting quarterback Brad Beesley completed two of seven passes.

Foothill receiver Ruben Mercado led the game in receiving with five catches.

For San Leandro, Baker and Sonny Sowles each caught two passes, and running back Ronald Thomas rushed for 106 yards.

This Friday, San Leandro hosts James Logan High at 7 p.m. at Burrell Field.
