Last week, the Barons fell, 59-24, at San Clemente. Ryan Balzer, Montana Merhoff and Rob Young rushed for touchdowns and Christian Rodriguez kicked a 34-yard field goal to account for the Barons' scoring.
Temescal Canyon got its season off to a great start last Friday when Michael Shepherd scored on a short run and two-point conversion late in the game to lift the Titans to a 28-27 victory over Tahquitz. Shepherd rushed for 221 yards on 41 carries and scored all four of his team's touchdowns.
Marina (0-1) vs. Westminster (0-1), 7 p.m. Friday, at Westminster High: Two neighboring schools, both of whom call Westminster's Bill Boswell Field home, clash in the Black/Blue Game, which has been held since 1963, Vikings Coach George Pascoe said. Both teams are seeking victory No. 1 in 2010.
Marina started its season last Friday at Capo Valley. The Vikings couldn't overcome a slow start and eventually fell to the Cougars, 21-6. After trailing, 14-0, after the first quarter, the Vikings climbed back into the game when quarterback Nick Marshall and Brayde Hill teamed up on a 35-yard scoring pass play in the second quarter.
"We must do a better job controlling the football and keep the defense off the field," Pascoe said, adding that the Vikings had just four first downs in the game and 47 snaps on offense to 60 for Capo Valley.
Westminster was overpowered by Garden Grove, 46-14, in its opener last Friday. Lions quarterback Dominic Pendergrass threw touchdown passes to Carlos Torres and Andrew Nguyen.
"This will be another good game in this series," Pascoe said. "Both teams need to rebound from their first week and get better. Both teams need to tackle better. The team that improves in that area the most will win."
