BERKELEY -- When high school football coaches lecture players about leaving it all out on the field, they should request a videotape of the effort displayed by St. Mary's senior running back Lorenzo Logwood from Saturday afternoon.

Logwood, a sturdy and reliable tailback, had 122 yards on 29 carries, scored two touchdowns and hauled in two passes for 21 yards as the host Panthers earned an impressive 28-7 Tri-County Athletic League-Rock Division victory over St. Patrick-St. Vincent. The win snapped a two-game losing streak for St. Mary's (5-3, 2-2 TCAL-Rock), which plays El Cerrito next Friday at 7 p.m. at De Anza High.

And when dehydration and nagging injuries forced some defensive starters to the bench for a spell in the second half, Logwood filled in at middle linebacker. His play was instrumental down the stretch as he bulled his way for crucial first downs to keep the clock running and the chains moving.

Only once did he mishandle an exchange from quarterback Ian Bonde, but he quickly hustled and recovered his own miscue.

The Panthers' defense also played a big role, recovering six fumbles by the Bruins (5-3, 3-2) and grabbing one interception. Defensive back Arius Williams stepped in front of a pass from quarterback Anthony Williams about midfield and raced 45 yards for the game's final score as the clock ran down.

Bonde completed 11 of 21 passes for 158 yards, including a 44-yard TD strike to Liam Godfrey early in the third quarter.

Williams paced the Bruins attack, completing 21 of 31 passes for 207 yards. He scored from seven yards out for the only touchdown for St. Patrick-St. Vincent.
