Kevin King rejuvenated the Bishop O'Dowd offense on Friday night, throwing two touchdown passes and running for one in a 34-20 West Alameda County Conference-Foothill Division victory over visiting Castro Valley.

King, playing in his first game since suffering a concussion against Sacred Heart Cathedral on Sept. 14, entered the game in the second quarter. He relieved Christopher Hagmaier, called up from the junior varsity squad after starting quarterback Dominic Miroglio suffered a shoulder injury.

King made his impact immediately, finding Dominic Gomes for a touchdown pass and running one in himself to give the Dragons (6-1, 2-0 WACC-Foothill) a 27-7 lead at halftime.

Bishop O'Dowd also got a major boost from its special teams, as Wayne Thomas and Gomes each returned a first-quarter kickoff to paydirt.

"When Kevin comes in, he can scramble, so they've got to build around that," Gomes said. "Once they focus on that, we can get the ball to the guys that are open."

Thanks to 14 Dragon penalties, Castro Valley (3-4, 1-1) was able to stop the game from getting out of hand. The Trojans managed an efficient ground game, led by Nick Alfaro (19 carries, 130 yards, two touchdowns) and Demareyeh Lane (19 carries, 82 yards). Alfaro made it a 14-point game midway through the fourth quarter with a 2-yard touchdown dive, but Castro Valley was unable to put more points on the board.
