Warriors defenseless against Washington

Mission San Jose High School has struggled just about all year, winning just one game all season long thus far, that of which coming in non-conference play.
However Friday night's (Nov. 5) 73-0 loss to Mission Valley Athletic League foe Washington High School just about sums up the type of year the Warriors have had.
Not only is the 73 points allowed the most allowed on the season by the Warriors, but Friday night's loss marked the third straight game that Mission San Jose (1-8, 0-5 MVAL) has failed to score a point. They've been outscored 156-0 during the three-game stretch, and outscored 249-6 in MVAL play this season.
Washington (5-4, 5-0 MVAL) opened the scoring with a first quarter safety on just the game's second play to take the early 2-0 lead. The Huskies would roll over the Warriors defense for 38 points in the first quarter, leading the referees to turn on a running clock in the second quarter.
Anmol Singh had another multi-touchdown game, tossing three scores on the night including a 77-yard pass to DeAndre Carter. Carter also had a 41-yard run in the second half as Washington scored 14 points in both the second and third quarter. Nick Ayad would complete the 73-point rout with a two-yard rushing score in the fourth quarter.
As if the score was not bad enough, MSJ's Wilson Zhang was taken off the field in the final two minute of the game with a concussion. The Huskies will travel to James Logan High School for the MVAL championship on Friday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m.
James Logan 32, Newark Memorial 6
Warren Long's 19-yard touchdown run in the first quarter may have opened the scoring for the James Logan Colts, however it's the 18-point fourth quarter that sealed the win for Logan in their 32-6 triumph over Newark Memorial Friday night.
Logan ran for a team total 385 yards on the ground, led by Long's 224 yards on 30 carries. Damond Beasley also racked up 126 yards on the ground, including a 63-yard run for a touchdown in the third quarter.
Long's 200-plus yard effort on the ground was also backed by his solid defensive play, intercepting a Nick Pohndorf pass in the fourth quarter and running it back 50 yards for the score.
Logan improved to 5-0 in MVAL play (7-2 overall) going into their Nov. 12 match-up against the other 5-0 MVAL team, the Washington Huskies.
Irvington 14, Kennedy 0
They're not entirely in the playoff hunt, however Irvington took a step toward a good ending to the season in their 14-0 win over the Kennedy Titans on Saturday night. The Vikings (2-7, 2-3 MVAL) have won two of their last three games going into their season finale against Newark Memorial Friday night. Meanwhile, the Titans finish the season with a 3-7 overall record, including a 1-5 record in MVAL play.
