Bishop Amat 28, Charter Oak 0
If La Puente Bishop Amat was looking for improvement after an 0-2 start this season, it came to the right place Friday night.

The visiting Lancers were dominant in every facet against Covina Charter Oak, amassing 260 yards rushing and blanking the No. 13 Chargers in a nonleague game at Charter Oak.

Bishop Amat (2-2) did not look anything like team that gave up 84 points in its first two games, and appeared especially porous in a 45-7 loss to Valencia two weeks ago.

``My big thing is,'' said Bishop Amat Coach Mike DiFiori. ``We have to get better every week.''

Bishop Amat (2-2), ranked No. 21 by The Times, took advantage of its massive offensive line from the start. Michael Combes, Matthew Romine, Jonathan Soto, Jose Rodriguez and Matthew Ramirez average 260 pounds and they paved the way for William Wagner to rush for 200 yards in 26 carries and score three touchdowns. Soto said the line was challenged by coaches to put forth their best effort.

``We took it personally this time,'' said Soto. ``We're not losing any more games, that's it.''

Wagner had a touchdown called back on Bishop Amat's first drive of the game, but he sprinted into the end zone on a 14-yard run two plays later to put the Lancers ahead, 7-0. Bishop Amat then took advantage of a 43-yard run on a fake punt by Jonathan Cornell to set up Wagner's second touchdown, a three-yard run.

Jeremy Gonzalez made the defensive play of the game for Bishop Amat late in the first half, intercepting a short pass from Manuel Ambriz in the end zone with 57.2 seconds remaining.

The Lancers increased their lead in the second half on a nine-yard touchdown reception by Tony Valenzuela and a one-yard touchdown run by Wagner with 9:03 remaining, putting him at the 200-yard mark.

``The holes were just humongous,'' Wagner said. ``I told the line all week, if they go all out, I'll do my job.''

Charter Oak (2-1) did not get a first down in the second half until 7:34 remained in the game and it came on a pass interference penalty. Another pass interference penalty gave the Chargers first and goal, but Wagner broke up a fourth-down pass in the end zone to preserve the shutout.

``We finally got them to understand that when you have 11 guys doing their job, that's pretty good,'' DiFiori said.

Lakewood 24, St. Bonaventure 7
Ventura St. Bonaventure's first foray into Division I football turned out to be less than successful. But for Lakewood, it may have been as sweet a moment as the program has had ever experienced.

In the aftermath of a convincing victory, Lakewood Coach Mike Christensen told his players, "We beat a good football team. In fact, we dominated!"

And with that, cheers went up. But Christensen went on.

"Mark this day down," he said. "We have taken our program finally to the next level."

That next level would be elite, where Lakewood can safely be mentioned in the same breath as Mission Viejo, Los Alamitos and Moore League rival Long Beach Poly.The Lancers took the journey with a ball-control offense and a devastating defense. Lakewood (3-0), ranked 10th in the Southland by The Times, outperformed the sixth-ranked Seraphs (3-1) in every facet.

St. Bonaventure hadn't scored fewer than 38 points in its three victories, but its only points Friday came when Lakewood punter John Gillett dropped a snap and Carlton Gillespie picked up a the loose ball and scored from two yards with 58 seconds left in the third quarter.

Lakewood's offense gained 368 yards to high-powered St. Bonaventure's 99. And though it's easy to point to Lancer linebackers Luthur Brown and Adrian McCovey -- considered among the nation's best tandem -- it was a team effort as St. Bonaventure wilted under the physical play.

Da'Milyn Tanner intercepted two passes, the defensive front hounded Seraph quarterbacks, who completed 12 of 21 passes for 63 yards, and the St. Bonaventure running game was practically non-existent.

Lakewood's physical dominance in the first half continued in the fourth quarter. It had scoring drives of 80 and 61 yards, and there was nothing fancy about it. No passing. Just a steady diet of Justin Robertson, Gabe Gonzalez and Tanner.

Quarterback Justin Wheeler sneaked in from one yard to make it 17-7 with 9:39 remaining, and Gonzalez scored from eight yards with 4:39 to go. The Lancers were going in for another score in the final minute, but Tanner fumbled at the two. Their final 24 plays were running plays, and none of them was for a loss.

Robertson rushed 23 times for 124 yards, Tanner 12 for 89, and Gonzalez 11 for 56.It was the first time St. Bonaventure had played a Division I team from the Southern Section. It was also only the Seraphs' third loss in 74 games. The last time St. Bonaventure had been dominated so badly, Coach Jon Mack said, "was about 1980."

Lakewood took a 10-0 lead into the third quarter. Wheeler connected with Danny Hernandez on a 55-yard scoring pass as two defenders bounced off each other at the 20-yard line trying to defend Hernandez, who emerged and ran in uncontested with 6:23 left in the half.

The Lancers added a 36-yard field goal by John Gillett as time expired in the half. Lakewood ate up the final 4:07 of the second quarter on the drive.

The Seraphs' best scoring chance came when Steven Lippert intercepted a Wheeler pass at the Lakewood 26 and returned it to the 23. But Lakewood's defense dug in, and three plays later, Jeremy Licea missed a 40-yard field-goal attempt.

La Puente 27, San Gabriel 23

Oaks Christian 66, Burbank 36
Sophomore quarterback Jimmy Clausen completed 15 of 18 passes for 297 yards and six touchdowns in the first half of a nonleague victory at Oaks Christian. The Lions (3-0), ranked No. 1 in Division XI, opened a 53-10 halftime lead against Burbank (1-2), a Division II school from the Foothill League. Clausen threw touchdown passes of 16, 12, 60, 48, 39 and 29 yards. He attempted only one pass in the second half, an incompletion. Marc Tyler, a sophomore running back, scored touchdowns four different ways for Oaks Christian.
