Local High School Football Teams Log Second Week of Play

The second week of the high school football season was kind  to Encinal High School (EHS), but not so kind to Alameda High School (AHS).

EHS earned another shutout victory, this time 58-0 to Analy of Sebastopol Friday, Aug. 30, at Willie Stargell Field. Last week, the Jets defeated Washington High School (WHS) of Fremont, 42-0.

The Jets were relentless against Sebastopol’s Tigers. They led 28-0 at the half. Senior Teddy Oliver was all over the field. He scored three times in the contest in three different ways. He returned a punt 50 yards for a score in the first quarter. He caught a 20-yard pass from quarterback David Romero-Reinholz in the second quarter. He capped off his night with a 35-yard run for his third touchdown.

EHS scored touchdowns in all three phases (offense, defense and special teams) of the game. Defensive back Vincent Nunley returned an interception 60 yards for a touchdown in the final period.

Senior Archie Cole rushed for two touchdowns. Isaiah Smith rushed for a touchdown. Romero-Reinholz’ second touchdown pass was for 25 yards to Micah Konapiliahi Puahi to extend the Jets’ lead to 35-0 in the third quarter. 

The Jets are now 2-0. They will face McClymonds of Oakland next tomorrow on the road.

AHS was not as lucky as they fell, 47-27, to WHS last Friday on the road. The Hornet defense was not as productive as it was last week when they shut out Oakland Military Institute, 19-0. This week the Hornets could not stop the Huskies’ rushing offense. The Hornets allowed 379 yards total rushing to WHS, including 308 yards on 18 carries to Douglas Turner. Turner scored five touchdowns in the contest.

The Huskies’ offense was completely different than the one that was shutout by the Jets just one week ago. 

The Hornets will play Oakland High tomorrow at home on Thompson Field.
