Campolindo 41, Alhambra 15: Andrew Zolintakis threw for 286 yards and six Cougars scored touchdowns as they breezed by the visiting Bulldogs to keep their perfect record intact.

Campolindo (8-0, 4-0 Diablo Foothill Athletic League) opened the game with 21 unanswered points. Zolintakis got the scoring going with a 31-yard strike to a wide-open Tyler Petite. Isaac Christian and Preston Kilwein added touchdowns before Alhambra (2-5-1, 1-3 DFAL) responded with a Ciazonne Ratto-Foster 17-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter. But the Bulldogs wouldn't get any closer. Campolindo closed the first half scoring with a Hunter Rosenbaum 49-yard touchdown reception from Zolintakis.

The Cougars forced a three-and-out to open the second half, then added to their lead with a 6-yard rushing touchdown by Nick Fadelli. Adam Remotto added a 1-yard rushing touchdown before the end of the third quarter.

Miramonte 55, Dougherty Valley 24: With the way Miramonte dominated the first two quarters, the second half was just a formality. Scoring touchdowns in all three phases of the game, Miramonte (6-2, 3-1 DFAL) scored 42 points in the first half and rolled to a road victory.

Receivers Dominic Paoletti and Will Fuller each scored two first-half touchdowns, as quarterback Drew Anderson led the humming Miramonte offense, finishing 11 of 19 for 213 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. But it was lineman Bennett Stehr who provided the exclamation point before halftime, recording a 65-yard interception return for a touchdown.

Stehr's score made it 42-14 Miramonte with just 4 seconds left in the half. Robert Sullivan scored on a 90-yard kickoff return to cut Dougherty Valley's deficit to 14-7, but that's the closest the Wildcats (4-4, 1-3) got.

Acalanes 37, Dublin 20: Peter Mitchell rushed for 146 yards and Casey Harrington threw for two scores to lead Acalanes to a win at Dublin.

The Dons displayed their no-huddle offense by going on an 85-yard drive in 11 plays that took under four minutes, ending in Harrington's 5-yard toss to John Lauth with just four seconds left in the first half to give Acalanes a 16-6 lead.

The drive featured a heavy dose of Mitchell and a 23-yard connection between Harrington and Andrew Bosshart to set up the score.

The Dons increased their lead early in the second half when Brett Merrill's interception set up another long drive by Acalanes, culminating in Harrington's 1-yard keeper for a 23-6 advantage.

College Park 35, Concord 26: Ray Jackson and Trevor Sprung each ran for two touchdowns, and the Falcons (5-2-1, 2-1 Diablo Valley Athletic League) rolled up 403 yards on the ground to beat the Minutemen (6-2, 2-1) at Diablo Valley College.

College Park shut out Concord in the second half, after the Minutemen scored on all four of their possessions in the first half. Malik Blackburn ran for 154 of his 172 yards and scored all four of his team's touchdowns in the game's first 24 minutes.

Blackburn scored on three of his first five carries, and the Minutemen led 20-14 before the first 10 minutes expired. But College Park's three-headed rushing monster of Jackson, Sprung and quarterback Dimitri Salido proved too much for Concord.

Jackson finished with 194 yards on 21 carries and scampered 80 yards for a score on the Falcons' first offensive play. Salido, running a wing-T like attack perfectly, ran for 102 yards, including 9 on a key fourth-and-8 on College Park's final scoring drive. Sprung's 1-yard plunge capped the drive and his 69-yard rushing effort.

Mitch Daniels threw for 169 yards to six receivers for Concord but was sacked three times. Daniels was brought down on the final two plays, and Concord lost 30 yards after reaching the Falcons' 14 on its final drive.

Northgate 44, Ygnacio Valley 0: The Broncos (7-1, 2-1 DVAL) took a 30-0 lead at halftime and never looked back in a win over the host Warriors (1-7, 0-3).

OAL

McClymonds 56, Skyline 0: The host Warriors' LaVance Warren rushed for 161 of his 196 yards in the first half and scored a career-high five touchdowns in three quarters while McClymonds' defense was also top-notch in the Oakland Athletic League victory.

Perhaps the most impressive of Warren's touchdowns was his second one. On a fourth-and-8 play from the Skyline 37, Warren started toward the left sideline, then cut sharply right and scored in the right corner of the end zone.

Warren also scored on runs of 39, 21, 24 and 18 yards. All of his rushing attempts were in the first three quarters.

McClymonds' defense limited Skyline (1-6, 1-1 OAL) to 19 total yards in the game, including negative-17 yards rushing. The Warriors (5-2, 2-0) also forced three Skyline turnovers.

TCAL-Rock

El Cerrito 41, Pinole Valley 7: With two of three starters returning from serving one-game suspensions, the Gauchos remained the cream of the Tri-County Athletic League-Rock Division crop with a rout of the host Spartans.

Quarterback Keilan Benjamin and wide receivers Keith Benjamin and Jalen Harvey missed El Cerrito's 41-0 shellacking of Berean Christian Oct. 12 for conduct detrimental to the team, coach Kenny Kahn said before Friday's game. Keith Benjamin will also miss next week's game, according to the coach. Kahn declined to say what the players did to earn the suspensions.

Against Pinole Valley (3-5, 1-2 TCAL-Rock), Keilan Benjamin connected on a 46-yard TD pass to Harvey for the game's first score.

Senior Adarius Pickett, the talented UCLA-bound defensive back, added two rushing touchdowns and scampered 43 yards after picking off PV quarterback Troyante McConico as the Gauchos (6-2, 4-0) took a 28-0 lead midway through the second quarter.

WACC-Foothill

Encinal 27, Castro Valley 26: In a back-and-forth matchup with West Alameda County Conference-Foothill Division rival Castro Valley, Encinal got the last laugh.

Isaiah Hunter scored the go-ahead touchdown for the Jets (7-1, 3-0 WACC-Foothill) with 38 seconds left in the game on a 3-yard run.

The visiting Trojans (2-6, 1-2) gave Encinal trouble all game long. Castro Valley running back Demaryeh Lane ran for 178 yards and three touchdowns, also contributing a 20-yard fumble recovery for a score -- breaking the Jets' two-game shutout streak.

The Trojans opened the game on a 13-0 run before two Encinal touchdowns by Jordan Parker.

Lane put the Trojans ahead 26-21 midway through in the fourth quarter on a 27-yard run. Later in the quarter, Encinal went on its final scoring drive with help from both Hunter and quarterback Taivale Tautalatasi, who each contributed key fourth-down conversions.

Bishop O'Dowd 28, Hayward 15: The host Dragons (2-6, 1-2 WACC-Foothill) beat the Farmers (0-8, 0-3) to earn their first league win. O'Dowd quarterback Chris Hagmaier threw for only 76 yards, but two of those passes went for touchdowns. Deshawn Brown had two catches for 48 yards and a score, and Greg Iglesias caught the other scoring pass.

Marjani Ellison threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Amari Evans to get Hayward on the board and cut the Dragons' lead to 14-7, and a blocked punt early in the second half gave the Farmers a safety and made the score 14-9. Rodrigo Otormin ran it in for Hayward's second touchdown in the fourth quarter, but O'Dowd answered right back with its own run, a 2-yard score from John Zelaski, icing the win.

San Leandro 56, Berkeley 24: The host Pirates (4-4, 3-0 WACC-Foothill) used their offense to establish control in the first half, then saw their defense score three touchdowns after halftime at Burrell Field.

Luck appeared to go Berkeley's way when Lamont Smith threw a pass that deflected off two Pirates and into the hands of Craig Fletcher for a 51-yard Yellowjackets touchdown and a 10-8 lead at the 10:40 mark of the second quarter.

Four minutes later, however, San Leandro's Ruben Garcia Ceja recovered a teammate's fumble in the end zone, putting the hosts up for keeps at 15-10.

Stephen Johnson's 20-yard run and a 51-yard reception by Keone Foumai extended San Leandro's lead to 29-10 by the half.

Interception returns by Reuben Baker (95 yards) and Troy Hearne (55 yards) and a 39-yard fumble return by Finau Mata'afa highlighted the second half for the Pirates.

Smith threw for 162 yards and ran for 76 more for the Yellowjackets (3-5, 1-2).

WACC-Shoreline

Tennyson 45, Piedmont 21: The Lancers unleashed a dominant rushing attack to come away with an impressive road victory over Piedmont (4-4, 2-1 WACC-Shoreline). Tennyson piled up 373 total rushing yards (287 first-half rushing yards), scoring five of its six touchdowns via the ground, and never allowed the Highlanders' energetic Homecoming crowd to get into the game.

Tennyson (5-3, 2-1 WACC-Shoreline) led 15-0 after the first quarter on touchdown runs of 6 and 1 yard by Joshua Handy. Piedmont scored on its second possession of the game on 74-yard pass from Spencer Kim to Atu Ohuafi, cutting the Lancers' lead to 15-7 with 10:55 left in the second quarter.

The Lancers responded by outscoring Piedmont 20-7 during the remaining 10 minutes of the second quarter for a 35-14 halftime lead.
