Most of those yards came on sweeps and cuts to the outside as the Lions were unable to contain the edge.The Trojans were led by running back Demareyeh Lane, who carried the ball ten times for 134 yards and scored two touchdowns. Patrick Cheek chipped in with 104 rushing yards and a score. Not to be outdone, Robert Taylor picked up 103 yards on the ground, scored twice, and intercepted the Lions four times. Castro Valley's defense held Liberty's offense to 24 yards in the first half.

Liberty (2-2) did score once in the first 24 minutes when Wendell Lee returned a kickoff 74 yards for a touchdown. Their next and last score came late in the fourth quarter when backup quarterback Ivan Oseguera orchestrated a 13-play, 90-yard drive, punctuated by his 5-yard touchdown run. He also completed the ensuing two-point conversion to Alonzo Taylor.
