MORAGA -- The toughest stretch of the regular season ended in celebration for the Campolindo High football team.

The Cougars beat arch rival Miramonte 38-10 on Friday night, turning a close game into a rout with a dominant second half.

It was Campolindo's 14th straight win in Diablo Foothill Athletic League play dating to 2011 and came on the heels of wins over Acalanes and El Cerrito.

Junior Nick Fadelli rushed for a career-high 217 yards, and quarterback Andrew Zolintakis recovered from a rough first quarter to throw for 166 yards and three touchdowns for Campolindo (6-0, 2-0 DFAL).

Miramonte (4-2, 1-1 DFAL) surprised the Cougars by running the ball with Ray Clark much of the first half. Clark finished with 171 rushing yards, and quarterback Drew Anderson completed 15 of 28 passes for 186 yards, but Miramonte reached the end zone only once -- Clark's 11-yard touchdown run on the Matadors' first drive.

"We had to make a lot of personnel changes in the secondary, on our defensive line, with our linebackers, we had to reposition everybody," Campolindo coach Kevin Macy said. "It came down to a whole bunch of adjustments. We were making them as fast as we could."

After Clark's TD, Miramonte threatened to score several more times in the first half but managed just a 28-yard Kyle Visher field goal late in the first quarter. Campolindo scored the game's final 31 points, 21 in the second half.

The first half was a bit of a struggle for the Cougars, though.

After Adam Remotto scored on Campolindo's opening drive, the Cougars offense went dormant until it put up 10 points in the final 2:37 of the first half. Tyler Petite caught a 41-yard touchdown pass, and Matt Blair kicked a 21-yard field goal to give Campolindo a 17-10 halftime lead.

Miramonte had two touchdowns called back by penalties in the first half and intercepted Zolintakis twice in the first quarter after his receivers had balls bounce off their hands.

Fadelli helped get the Cougars offense back on track.

He finished off the scoring with a 70-yard TD run in the fourth quarter.

"We knew Fadelli was always waiting in the wings ready to have a big game, we just had to wait to get into a situation where our line was ready to produce, as well," Macy said.
