The host Encinal High football team pitched its second consecutive shutout Friday, beating Berkeley 10-0 in what was the Jets' first-ever victory over the Yellowjackets.

"I don't think we've ever beaten them," said Joe Tenorio, a 1995 Encinal graduate and the longtime Jets coach.

The teams played in different leagues when the Jets (6-1, 2-0 West Alameda County Conference-Foothill) began their run of power in 2008, and Berkeley (3-4, 1-1) won in overtime last year when the schools became league foes again.

This was the Yellowjackets' first loss as a member of the WACC after an undefeated run to the league title last year.

Berkeley had twice the time of possession as Encinal in the first half, but that didn't produce any points.

The Yellowjackets opened the game with an 18-play drive that reached the Jets' 8-yard line before an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty helped stall the possession.

Encinal had the ball only twice in first half and ran just 14 plays, but that was enough for the Jets to take a 7-0 lead on a 2-yard touchdown run by Isaiah Hunter.

Encinal went on a 16-play drive to open the third quarter that ended with a 24-yard field goal by Emily Rentschler.

Three of Berkeley's four second-half drives ended with Encinal interceptions, including two by Kevin Shaa.

Carlos McClure also had an interception, and Kealii Pedro had one in the first half.

The Yellowjackets outgained Encinal 213-198 and were led by Michael Lazarus' 97 yards on 21 carries.

The Trojans rushed for 279 yards in the dominating win, as they scored 22 unanswered points in the second quarter to take a 29-7 lead at halftime.

San Leandro 39, Hayward 0: Junior quarterback Stephen Johnson accounted for five touchdowns as the Pirates (3-4, 2-0) remained unbeaten in the WACC-Foothill division with a shutout of the Farmers (0-7, 0-2) at Sunset Field.

Johnson had four touchdown passes and finished with 139 yards on 7-for-9 passing. He also ran for a game-high 75 yards and a score.

Defensively, the Pirates held the Farmers to minus-1 yard on the ground and 29 total yards. Hayward recorded just one first down.

Johnson hit Reuben Baker for a 26-yard strike in the end zone and Keone Foumai for a 13-yard touchdown as San Leandro jumped out to a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter.

Concord 30, Northgate 28: Quarterback Mitch Daniels completed two touchdown passes to Mason Knight in the fourth quarter, and the host Minutemen took a win over previously unbeaten Northgate in Diablo Valley Athletic League play.

The wild game saw the Broncos rally from a 12-6 halftime deficit to lead 13-12 on a 14-yard pass from Kyle Austin to Jake Smith. But Concord (6-1, 2-0 DVAL) responded with a 42-yard scoring run on a delayed handoff to Malik Blackburn.

The Broncos (6-1, 1-1), led by Eric Haynes' 158 yards rushing, retook the lead on Haynes' bulling 12-yard run.

But the Minutemen wouldn't be denied. Daniels completed a 34-yard scoring strike to Knight on a post pattern after Jose Rivera recovered a fumble.

Sam Dale just missed a 41-yard field goal attempt on Northgate's next possession, and the Minutemen made the Broncos pay.

Daniels connected on a pass to Knight, who had 192 yards receiving, and he eluded a tackle 20 yards downfield and raced into the end zone on the 50-yard completion. It was his third TD catch of the game.

Northgate rallied with a 1-yard touchdown run by Matt Huang to cut the deficit to two points, but fell short.

The Broncos were hurt by turnovers, fumbling the ball away three times.

The Minutemen took a 12-6 lead into the intermission after holding the high-scoring Broncos without a touchdown.
