Football: Sacred Heart Cathedral loses late lead in overtime loss to Bishop O’Dowd

By Jeremy Balan

OAKLAND – Sacred Heart Cathedral sophomore kicker Maxwell Tenhoff’s first field goal in overtime sailed easily through the uprights, but it was accompanied by a high-pitched whistle coming from the Bishop O’Dowd sideline.

The Dragons called a timeout just before the ball was snapped and the 21-yard kick that would have knotted the non-league matchup at 30-30 was waved off.

But the Dragons weren’t icing the young kicker. They were making adjustments.

After the timeout, O’Dowd loaded the left side of the line of scrimmage, and the new alignment paid off.

O’Dowd senior Dominic Gomes broke into the Irish backfield untouched, dove toward the ball and blocked Tenhoff’s second kick as soon as it left the sophomore’s foot, sealing a 30-27 O’Dowd victory on Friday.

Football: St. Ignatius defense the difference against Bishop O’Dowd

By Jeremy Balan

St. Ignatius still hasn’t put together four consecutive quarters of solid football, but luckily for the Wildcats, their defense was dominant enough through three to build up a 35-0 lead against Bishop O’Dowd of Oakland.

The Dragons, which outgained St. Ignatius 278-231, rallied in the fourth quarter to cut the final score to 35-20, but the huge deficit was too much to overcome.
