Fountain Valley 28, San Clemente 7
Fountain Valley was viewed as a good barometer for the South Coast League race this season.

The Barons opened the season playing back to back game against Mission Viejo and San Clemente, teams that are expected to battle for the South Coast League title this season.

But the Barons proved again Saturday night that they are more than a good gauge for another league race, amassing 306 yards rushing in an upset over No. 18 San Clemente at Huntington Beach High.

The victory came on the heels of last week's 14-13 loss to No. 2 Mission Viejo, when the Barons came up short on a late two-point conversion that would have ended the Diablos 29-game winning streak.

``We tore it up,'' said Leo Talavou, Fountain Valley's 6-3, 325-pound offensive tackle.

Fountain Valley took a 21-0 lead early in the fourth quarter on a seven-yard touchdown pass from Chris Debowski to Mike Musso, which capped a 15-play, 99-yard drive.

``On that 99-yard drive, they were dying,'' said Talavou.

After the Tritons recovered its own fumble in the endzone to cut the lead to 21-7, Bryan Riehm answered with a 44-yard touchdown run to put the Barons back up by 21 points.

Riehm finished with 94 yards in 13 carries. Ryan Best led the Barons with 113 yards rushing in 13 carries.

San Clemente, which returned several starters from a team that reached the Southern Section Division II semifinals last season, was held to 76 total yards in the first half and 215 for the game. Triton running back Cheyne Verhagen, who rushed for more than 1,600 yards last season, did not practice all week due to a knee injury and was held to three yards in seven carries.

``We need leadership on offense,'' said Verhagen. ``We're trying to find ourselves. Once we get going, we'll be hard to stop.''

Buena 23, Thousand Oaks 20

Los Altos 22, La Habra 13
Senior running back Randall Brown rushed for 131 yards and one touchdown in 21 carries, but it was a 28-yard scoring reception that sealed the nonleague victory for Los Altos with 4:29 to go in a matchup of defending Southern Section champions at Los Altos.

Brown scored at the end of a three-play, 32-yard drive following a fumble by La Habra quarterback Daniel Morales to stretch the Conquerors' precarious 15-13 edge to 21-13 midway through the fourth quarter. Daniel Hernandez's point-after was good for the final margin.

La Habra (1-1), Southern Section Division IX champion last season, trailed Los Altos (2-0), the defending Division VI champion, 15-6, at halftime. But the Highlanders used a strong drive by Morales to pull within 15-13 with 1:40 to play in the third period.

Morales took the Highlanders 45 yards in seven plays, completing two passes for 24 yards and scoring on a three-yard run to close the gap. He finished nine of 16 passing for 99 yards with one touchdown and one interception before leaving the game with severe leg cramps with 2:47 to play.

La Habra had one last chance on its final series. With the aid of a personal foul penalty against Los Altos, La Habra drove to the Conquerors' 31-yard line with a minute left, but UCLA-bound Brigham Harwell flattened La Habra backup quarterback Jesse Quesada for a nine-yard loss, and a last-ditch pass fell incomplete on the final play.

Riverside North 28, Fontana Kaiser 7

Running back Josh Barnett carried eight times for 80 yards and one touchdown for North, ranked No. 2 in Division V.

Rayvonne Gooden gained 98 yards in 22 carries for Kaiser (1-1), ranked No. 2 in Division VIII.

A 67-yard pass from Dion Morton to Damon Morton for an apparent touchdown on the first play of the game was called back because of a penalty. However, three plays later, Dion threw five yards to tailback E.J. Brown for a score.

Barnett added a touchdown on a three-yard run with 5:24 left in the first half. Two minutes later, following his interception, Dion Morton gave North a 21-0 lead on a seven-yard pass to Deylan Marrow.

St. Bonaventure 41, Hart 34
The win did not give Ventura St. Bonaventure a Southern Section title, but the Seraphs' upset of Newhall Hart at Moorpark College might have been the program's biggest victory.

St. Bonaventure (2-0) won a fourth consecutive section title last season, but the Seraphs' lone loss was a 31-6 drubbing by Hart that snapped a school-record 43-game winning streak.

Quarterback Brian Stevens had struggled through a 10 for 26 and three-interception performance in the loss to Hart, but he completed 23 of 31 passes for 285 yards and two touchdowns Friday.

Stevens' second touchdown pass came on a short completion to running back Matt Lee, who raced untouched to the end zone to complete a 44-yard scoring play. The score gave St. Bonaventure, the No. 16-ranked team in the Southland by The Times, a 34-14 lead with 5:24 to play in the third quarter.

Lee, a junior, rushed for 211 yards and three touchdowns in 39 carries. He also had four receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown.

Hart (0-2) narrowed the deficit to 34-21 with 9:08 left to play when Sean Norton threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Cicone.

The Indians, who won four consecutive section titles between 1998-2001, closed to 34-27 with 3:55 to play when Evan Surratt caught a 30-yard touchdown pass from Norton.

St. Bonaventure, which won the Division IV title last year, recovered the ensuing onside kick by Hart and extended its lead to 41-27 when Andrez Morales ran 18 yards for a touchdown.

Norton, who suffered a rib injury in a 20-17 season-opening loss to Los Alamitos, completed 20 of 39 passes for 389 yards and five touchdowns. But Hart, ranked third by The Times, was held to 32 yards rushing.

St. Paul 23, Redondo 9
Miguel Rios threw for 103 yards on five of seven passing and two touchdowns and Dwight Tardy rushed for 152 yards on 25 carries to lead visiting St. Paul (1-1) over Redondo (1-1).

Temple City 34, Alhambra 7
Tailback Kenji Morinaga rushed 16 times for 116 yards and two first-quarter touchdowns to lead host Temple City (2-0) over Alhambra (1-1). His touchdown runs were three and nine yards.

Westlake 31, S.O. Notre Dame 7
Let there be no doubt about the toughness and fire of Westlake Village Westlake quarterback Rudy Carpenter, who passed for 203 yards, ran for 57 yards and provided unyielding leadership in a nonleague victory over defending Southern Section Division III champion Sherman Oaks Notre Dame on Friday night.

Westlake (2-0), ranked No. 12 by The Times, scored 24 consecutive points in the second half after a 7-7 halftime tie to rout the seventh-ranked Knights (1-1), who were held to one first down in the final 24 minutes.

It's understandable why teams in the Marmonte League made such a commotion after Carpenter transferred last February from Newbury Park, where he was the league's top offensive player last season.

He's 6 feet 3, 190 pounds, fearless and relentless. He didn't seem fazed or bothered by Notre Dame's constant pass rush.

He scored one touchdown, passed for another and at one point tried to hurdle a Notre Dame defender. He raised his voice to shout at a Westlake teammate who didn't provide a block. He completed 16 of 25 passes, including a 15-yard touchdown to Marcus Maddocks.

"The thing he showed was a lot of competitiveness," Westlake Coach Jim Benkert said. "They brought everyone and he was back there making a lot of plays."

Westlake turned two fumbles and an interception deep in Notre Dame territory into touchdowns in the second half. The Knights, in losing for the first time since the 2001 season, could not pass the ball effectively at any point. Quarterbacks Jim Welker and Garrett Green were a combined three of 12 for 37 yards.

Green scored Notre Dame's only touchdown on a 91-yard run in the second quarter, the second-longest run in school history.

As if a game matching two top 25 teams wasn't enough motivation for the players, USC Coach Pete Carroll was standing beyond the end zone and on the sideline offering additional inspiration.

"It's a great game," Carroll said just after halftime.

Carroll was watching USC-bound tight end Jimmy Miller of Westlake, who had a sack and caught a 27-yard touchdown pass that was nullified because of a holding penalty.

La Mirada 14, Crenshaw 12
Kyle Gran had a 55-yard touchdown run and helped stop a late two-point conversion for Crenshaw in helping the Matadores to a victory in a defensive struggle at Crenshaw.

Crenshaw cut into La Mirada's 14-6 lead in the fourth quarter when Rickie Collin scored on a three-yard touchdown run with 6:47 left. However, Gran pressured Cougar quarterback Anthony Moore on the conversion try and forced an incomplete pass.

Crenshaw (1-1) got the ball back with 2:10 remaining but Gran intercepted Moore's pass at the 38-yard line to clinch the win.

Gran rushed for 112 yards in 20 carries. He also had an 18-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter.

Venice 17, Loyola 13
Venice scored a major victory Friday night, but it was a bigger triumph for City Section football.

Venice held off a fierce rally by Los Angeles Loyola to hold on for the victory over the Cubs at Santa Monica College.

It was vindication for City Section schools, which have long been an afterthought compared to Southern Section schools in the heirarchy of Southern California high school football. It was a more convincing statement considering the team Venice defeated.

Loyola, a four-time major-division champion that is ranked No. 6 by The Times, is no ordinary Southern Section team. It is traditionally one of the best and most respected teams in the Southland.

"This is a huge win for our program and for all of City football," said Coach Angelo Gasca of Venice (2-0), which is ranked No. 19. "I grew up knowing a lot about Loyola. I knew what we were facing tonight."

Loyola (1-1) trailed, 10-0, at halftime and 17-0 after Byron Ellis scored from two yards with 7 minutes 19 seconds left in the third quarter.

The Cubs stormed back and pulled to within 17-13 with 7:01 left in the game when Trason Bragg scored on a two-yard run.

Loyola's defense forced Venice to punt after three plays on its next possession and took over at the Venice 30-yard line after a poor punt with almost five minutes to play.

Two plays later, however, Venice linebacker Oton Garcia stripped the ball from Bragg and Erick Lobos recovered the fumble for Venice with 4:39 left. The Gondoliers picked up two first downs and ran 12 plays to run out the clock.

Beau Davis completed 16 of 26 passes for 199 yards and receiver Ryan Graves caught four passes for 126 yards for Venice. Ellis had 104 yards rushing and two touchdowns in 21 carries.

Scott Deke completed 12 of 22 passes for 194 yards and a touchdown for Loyola. Bragg had 103 yards rushing in 19 carries.
