Local junior college update
By Gary van den Heuvel
Soccer: The Ohlone College women's soccer team fell to fourth place in the Coast Conference North division with a hard-luck 1-0 loss to Las Positas in a game which Renegades coach Larry Heslin said that his team "had much of the run of play for most of the 90 minutes." Ohlone missed several close-range shots, and Las Positas capitalized on one of their few opportunities, the goal coming off the foot of Breanna Berry.
With the defeat, Ohlone fell to 8-6-2 overall, 4-3-1 in the division, seven points behind division leader City College of San Francisco.
Ohlone's men's team lost their third straight game, 3-0, to Foothill College (Oct. 26), but got off the losing streak with a 2-2 tie against Chabot (Oct. 29) in Hayward. George Mayer II scored both Renegade goals. Ohlone ended the week with a record of 8-7-2, 3-5-2 in the division. For Chabot, the draw was a welcome respite from losing - the Gladiators are 2-11-2 overall this season.
Things went from bad to worse for the Chabot women's team: At week's end, the Gladiators sat with a 2-13-1 record after two straight 5-0 losses. Canada College, led by Marissa Griffin's two goals, put the hurt on Chabot early in the week. Las Positas was led by Christi Wallace's pair of goals in their win over the Gladiators.
Football: Chabot (6-2, 2-1 in the GGC) won their second straight Golden Gate Conference win, a 47-19 laugher over Los Medanos. Quarterback Travis Gardner led the amped-up Gladiator offense with two touchdown passes (to D'Marco Jimmerson and Chanzell Porter), and he scored one himself on a 6-yard run.
Bryan Jones also hit pay-dirt for the Gladiators with an eight-yard scoring run. On the defensive side of the ball, Chabot defensive back Joshua Pride intercepted two passes, returning one of them 25 yards for a touchdown. The Gladiators also recovered two Los Medanos fumbles.
Volleyball: An up-and-down week for both local schools, as Chabot won by a 3-2 score over Hartnell, but Ohlone lost their two matches, 3-1 to CCSF, and 3-0 to Skyline.
