Boys Soccer: University’s young guns get first win against Mission

By Jeremy Balan

University High School’s boys soccer team returned five seniors from last season’s team, but it was two of the Red Devils’ least experienced players that led them to a 1-0 win over Mission High School on Tuesday at Kezar Stadium.

It is University’s (1-0-1) first win of the season, and it appeared the Red Devils would remain winless until the 65th minute, when sophomore Jack Wilson knocked in the only goal of the game.

Football: Complete 2010 schedule

By Jeremy Balan

We’re still a work week away from Week 0, but as boys soccer and girls volleyball get into full swing, I figured I’d indulge your football fix with a detailed view of the 2010 football schedule.

This week we’ll get a good idea how rebuilding efforts at Burton, Mission and Riordan are progressing, but the game of the week without a doubt will be St. Ignatius at Marin Catholic, last season’s CIF-North Coast Section Division III champ.

Boys Soccer: Franco’s unlikely hat trick leads Gateway over Lick-Wilmerding

By Ernest Stone

For Gateway High School’s starting goalkeeper Fauris Franco, keeping goals out of the net is usually his first objective.

Yet, after disciplinary action led Franco to be subbed in as a forward against Lick-Wilmerding, putting goals in the net became his new purpose, as his hat trick lifted the Gators (1-1) to a 5-2 non-league victory on Thursday at Crocker Amazon Playground.

Girls Volleyball: Drew outlasts Leadership in season opener

By Jeremy Balan

Led by hitters Emily Townsend and Ava Decker, Drew School shook of some early sloppy play to edge Leadership High School 3-2 (25-23, 23-25, 25-21, 22-25, 17-15) in a non-league match Wednesday at Booker T. Washington Community Service Center.

The Dragons (1-0) struggled with early unforced errors, but battled back from early deficits in each of their three game wins.
