The host Dragons continued their march through the Hayward Area Athletic League, shutting out the winless Monarchs. Mt. Eden (1-6, 0-4 HAAL) stood little chance against a balanced O'Dowd squad that has won five straight.

The Dragons (5-2, 4-0) struck early on a 43-yard pass from Dominic Miroglio to De'Zhon Grace. A 57-yard burst by Daniel Jones and a nifty 12-yard pass to tight end Terence Daniel gave them a 21-0 lead after one quarter, and a second-quarter 1-yard pass to Jack Burley increased the lead to 28-0.

O'Dowd's defense totally dominated the Monarchs, repeatedly denying them good field position. The Dragons' special teams also shined, and in the second quarter speedster Dominic Gomes scored on punt returns of 64 and 71 yards to give the home team a 42-0 lead at the half.
