Oxnard Frosh Game

Thursday saw us suiting up for our last home game of the 2009 season for a contest with the Oxnard Yellowjackets. They would be a formidable opponent coming into the game with a solid 6-2 record that included SIX shutouts!

Brian FitzGerald and I strategizing before the opening kickoff.

The Spartans on offense running the Option

Our offense has been a trouble spot all season long so points, yards, even inches would all be hard to earn vs. the 'Jackets defense.

The Topa Topa Mountains

Always a beautiful backdrop to John Reardon Field this time of the year.

Spartan Defense Played TOUGH!

I could not be prouder of our kids on defense as we forced Oxnard into four "3 and out" punts and held them on downs on three other possesions! The 'Jackets had been scoring a ton of points this year and our defense held them to only 7 points!

Unfortunately, Oxnard would return a punt about 40 yards for a second TD to up their lead to 14-0 half way through the third quarter.

Again, Fall Sunsets are just plain gorgeous
in El Rio!

Post Game Talk

Oxnard improved to 7-2 on the season and 3-1 in Pacific View League play as they notched their seventh shutout of the campaign in beating us 14-0.

We are now 3-6 for the season, 2-2 in PVL play.

We have one more game left on our schedule at cross-town rival Camarillo who is now 8-1 and alone in first place in the PVL at 4-0. Kickoff next Thursday is set for 5:30 p.m.

Young Coach Michael Contreras was cold

It was indeed California cold which is nothing like Swedish cold I'm sure!!!
