Valley Christian High running back Vince Volpatti outgained the entire St. Patrick-St. Vincent roster Friday and even intercepted a pass as the Vikings defeated the Bruins 40-14 in a Tri-County Athletic League-Rock Division game at Chabot College.
Volpatti finished the night with 311 yards and four touchdowns on 28 carries. Also a defensive back, Volpatti intercepted a pass for the Vikings (4-3, 2-1 TCAL-Rock).
As a team, the Bruins (5-3, 3-1) gained just 175 yards.
"Our offensive line did really good and we just ran the ball really hard," Volpatti said. "The line pushed and we stayed on our blocks, and I just kept running."
Volpatti had scoring runs of 33, 20, 6 and 2 yards. Theman Taylor and Griffin Smith also reached paydirt for the Vikings.
While Valley Christian established its running game from the start, St. Patrick-St. Vincent didn't get into much of a rhythm until later in the game. The Bruins got on the board in the third quarter on an 85-yard touchdown run by Marcus Villalobos, but by then, St. Patrick-St. Vincent faced a 25-8 deficit.
The Bruins scored again in the fourth quarter on a quarterback keeper by Anthony Williams.
Pinole Valley 45, Berean Christian 25: The host Spartans (2-5, 2-1 TCAL-Rock) scored in every quarter and limited the Eagles (2-6, 0-4) to just 28 yards rushing.
The backfield trio of Isiah Lewis, Javari Shepherd and Chris Salmeron combined for 300 yards on the ground as Pinole Valley pulled away in the second half.
Lewis finished with 132 yards on 17 tries and one touchdown, Salmeron had 13 carries for 107 yards, and Shepherd added 61 yards on six carries to spark Pinole Valley.
The play of linebackers Terell Kennedy, Shepherd and Antwan Martinez powered the Spartans' defense and kept Berean Christian in check for most of the second half, forcing three fumbles and giving Pinole Valley excellent field position.
Quarterback Jax Cuddihy completed nine of 24 passes for 210 yards and four touchdowns to lead Berean Christian. Freshman receiver Isaiah Hodgins hauled in three passes for 73 yards, all went for scores.

John Swett 41, De Anza 20: The Indians notched their first TCAL-Stone Division, beating the host Dons.
John Swett (3-4, 1-1 TCAL-Stone) trailed 12-6 in the third quarter, but quarterback James Sykes led the Indians offense and made some big plays on defense. Sykes had touchdown runs of 65 and 77 yards, and also had an interception.
Kyle Hardcastle and Brandon Newman each had a sack for John Swett's defense and defensive backs Jai're Hogan and Joe Ialoa also each had an interception.
De Anza (1-6, 0-2) started fast, with quarterback Brennen Brooks passing for 159 yards and rushing for two touchdowns in the first half.
The second half would be a different story as the Indians defense shut down the Dons passing game, intercepting three passes and keeping them out of the end zone until 15 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Brooks hit Robert Stern on a 58 yard touchdown pass.
John Swett improves their TCAL-Stone record to 1-1 and the Dons fall to 0-2.

Hercules 46, Richmond 0: Josh Jackson scored two touchdowns in the first half as the Titans (6-1, 2-0 TCAL-Stone) got past the host Oilers (1-6, 1-1).
A long run by Jackson set up a quarterback sneak by Louis Michael to give Hercules a 7-0 lead with 9:14 left in the first quarter. Jackson then followed that up with second quarter touchdown runs of five yards and one yard, and a 30-yard field goal by Loran Fonseca gave the Titans a 23-0 lead at halftime.
