Cardinal Newman spotted visiting Maria Carrillo a two-touchdown lead and then rallied on the arm of Keaton Dunsford to score a 48-27 victory in NBL action Friday night.

The 6-foot-5 quarterback threw for 358 yards and four touchdowns to spearhead the comeback.
All four of his scoring tosses came in the second half as Newman outscored the Pumas, 34-7.

Three of the touchdown passes went to Ryan O’Leary. The first, 58 yards, followed by scoring strikes of 17 and 13.
Dunsford’s other touchdown was to Kevin Lucey, and that one covered 70 yards.

Lucey wound up with 135 receiving yards and O’Leary, who had 12 catches, finished with 219.
Defensively, the Cardinals got big games from Dylan Koleman (10 tackles and an interception), Bryce McChinak (12 tackles) and Duncan Hatch (10 tackles and a fumble recovery).

Leading the Carrillo offense was running back Garrett Koop. He rushed for 118 yards on 18 carries and caught two passes for 54 yards. The senior scored two touchdowns, one on the ground and the other through the air.

Newman is now 5-2 overall and 3-1 in league. The Pumas are 3-4 and 2-2.


At Windsor, quarterback Colin McAlvain was nearly perfect as the Jaguars coasted to an easy victory.
McAlvain completed 15 of 18 passes for 220 yards and three touchdowns.

Windsor was well in control after grabbing a 28-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. It was 42-12 at halftime.

The defense helped the cause with five interceptions.

“This was the first time all year we started out fast,” coach Vic Amick. “That made all the difference.”

The Jaguars improved to 4-3 overall and 2-2 in league. Santa Rosa dropped to 2-5 and 0-4.


At Sebastopol, the Tigers strengthened their position atop the SCL with the lopsided win.

Analy scored on its first two offensive plays and led 28-0 after one quarter. The lead expanded to 42-0 by halftime.
Quarterback Will Smith only put the ball in the air seven times and three of those tosses went for scores. Two of the touchdowns were to Kerr Johnson, on throws of 44 and 11 yards. The other was to Dominic Carrasco from four yards out.

Johnson also connected with Tyler Graham on a 36-yard touchdown.

Analy is 4-0 in league and 7-1 overall while El Molino is 1-2 in the SCL and 2-5.


At Sonoma, quarterback Dan Deely and receiver Ed Pomeroy hooked up on two first half touchdowns to lead the Dragons.

“The offense did just enough, but it was the defense that really did a good job,” coach Bob Midgley said. “Alex Gustafson and Trevor Welch were outstanding.”

Deely completed 16 of 31 passes for 250 yards.

Sonoma’s overall record is 5-2 and 2-1 in the SCL. The Greyhounds are 4-4 and 2-2.
