And so it begins…finally

It seemed like it would never arrive, but we finally played our first game of the season against Menlo-Atherton who had already played their first game of the season the week prior, and were victorious 27-14. It was a tough and very hard fought game, and we did very well. Although we led throughout the game, it was really close, and I never felt comfortable until there was less than two minutes remaining on the game clock.

We were able to take the ball away from Menlo Atherton five times, forcing four fumbles and one interception. Our offense was stellar keeping the ball as we did not turn it over the entire game. Garret Zeiter and Teddy Enfantino led the offense, each scoring twice. A great highlight was a 61 yard touchdown pass from Bryan Rose to Teddy Enfantino. Bryan also played extremely well and had a great game. Our leader on the defensive side of the ball was Shane Smith who had a team leading eleven tackles. Shane was also a major contributor on offense with some key rushes. Other standouts were Chuck Sullivan, Zac Janovich, Kevin Tjon, Jake Bevins, Max Friday, Max Herman, Sean Niemann, Arman Alam, Alex Randolph, Tyler Perkins, Jimmy Eisner, Kyle Kevorkian and Brent McCoy.

Logan Chapman had three extra points and kicked off very well. Kevin Tjon had the best punt I have ever seen in my 50 years of watching football. He had a magnificent seventy-two yard punt that traveled seventy-five yards in the air. I would have to say that all in all a good start for our team, but there is also a lot to clean up before next Friday’s home opener against a highly ranked and 2-0 Oak Grove football team. Thanks for the support, and I hope you can make it out to next week’s game. I’m hopeful it will be a good one.
