Football: Washington’s air attack key in win over Balboa

By Graham Henderson

On its first drive, Washington High School learned that its running game wasn’t going to be enough to beat Balboa.

After a four-and-out series, Washington head coach Karl Finley, who usually relies on his team’s running game, knew that he had to make a change.

With eight men in the box to stop the Washington run, the Eagles’ backfield was left open. Junior Eagle quarterback Aram Gevandian took advantage, throwing for 150 yards and two touchdowns on 12-of-25 passing to lead Washington to a 24-20 win on Saturday.

Football: Mission takes over first place in AAA with win over Galileo

By Jeremy Balan

There is a new king in the Academic Athletic Association, at least for now.

Mission is now sitting alone alone at the top of the league after the visiting Bears beat Galileo 42-20 on Friday.

Mission’s (5-3, 5-0) defense has been its strength all season, but it was the Mission offense, led by bruising running back Devanta Gaines, that put up a season-high 42 points.


Boys Soccer: Early goals too much for Stuart Hall to overcome in BCL West title game

By Graham Henderson

SAN RAFAEL — Stuart Hall gambled, starting the game aggressively, to try and catch Marin Academy off guard on their home turf and jump out to an early lead in the Bay Counties League West championship game.

But gambling against a team that has now won seven of the last 10 league titles is risky, and Marin Academy (15-2-1) was able to turn the tables, as the Wildcats scored three goals in the first 25 minutes to beat the Knights 3-0.

Week 8 Football Preview: First place on the line for Galileo and Mission

By Jeremy Balan

It was supposed to be an Academic Athletic Association showdown.

The best AAA offense in Galileo versus the best defense in Mission. Something would have to give.

The winner of the game on Friday will still take over first place in the AAA, but the matchup took a considerable hit when it was announced that Galileo standout senior running back Quincy Nelson could miss the remainder of the season with an MCL injury.


Boys Soccer: Miller’s strike in penalty kicks sends Stuart Hall to BCL West title game

By Jeremy Balan

Stuart Hall junior Patrick Miller was on the junior varsity team as recently as Monday, when the Knights defeated Urban in the first round of the Bay Counties League West playoffs.

For whatever reason, Stuart Hall head coach Antonio Villegas called Miller up for the Knights’ semifinal match against University on Wednesday at Crocker Amazon Playground.

The match went to penalty kicks after the two teams ended regulation and two overtime periods at a 1-1 tie, and it was Miller who came up in penalty kicks with the opportunity to put the match away.

As the fourth shooter, with a 2-1 edge in penalty kicks, Miller delivered a picture-perfect strike past University goalkeeper John Schember, into the top right corner of the net to send the Knights to the league championship game.
