Football: Moreau joins MVAL with a win

The last time a Moreau Catholic team played a Mission Valley Athletic League football game, it was 1992. Their debut was a good one as they outlasted John F. Kennedy 19-18 at Fudenna Stadium in Fremont, September 22. From the start, it was a battle for control of the offensive line; Moreau's D.J. Souto was able to take advantage of gaps for 160 yards on 24 carries, one a 48-yard touchdown run to give the Mariners a 13-12 lead with 8:35 left in the second quarter.

The Titans of Kennedy fought back with grit and took the lead back 18-13 on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Staley to an open Jacob Murrietta with just 14 seconds left in the third quarter.

Moreau Catholic sophomore Jason Hinton gave the Mariners the final lead with a 2-yard touchdown run that completed a 15-play, 62-yard drive with 5:37 left in the game. Justin Staley was dialed in as he hit 12 of 17 with 209 yards passing and two touchdowns.

It was a close battle but Moreau had just enough to come out on top
