Agoura JV Game and the Pierce College Season Opener

Week Three of the 2015 high school season would turn out to be a rough one for the NPHS Panther JVs. 

Newbury Park Panthers (2-0)
Agoura Chargers (1-1)

Ruben Soria returned the opening kickoff 91 yards for a Panthers TD. Travis Golds added the PAT and NPHS led 7-0.

It would all go downhill from there . . .

The Agoura QB had an outstanding game

Fernando Takacs played great again
but may be lost for the season
due to a knee injury

Fernando will be greatly missed
if his season is indeed over

 QB Ruben Soria was harassed all game

Even though we closed the gap to 28-25 with 3:39 left in the third quarter, it never felt like we were in the game. From that point, the Chargers put the game away by scoring the contest's last three TDs to win going away by a final score of 49-25.

It was the worst drubbing that we have had in our three seasons at NPHS.

We MUST rebound this coming Friday at home against a 2-0 Dos Pueblos Chargers team.

On Saturday night, I was joined by Laurie, Mike and Jacob as we drove into the beautiful San Fernando Valley to see a Junior College game of special interest.

College of the Desert Roadrunners (0-1)
Pierce College Brahmas (0-0) 

This would be the first football game the young Jacob had ever attended.

It was also the first game as Pierce's Head Coach for family friend Jason Sabolic.

I attended the University of Washington with Jason's father, Paul. Jason has been a hard working assistant at Pierce for several seasons and we wanted to be there to support him and his parents on his big night.

Besides Paul and his wife Joanne, we were also joined by Mike and Susan D'Antuono at the game. It was a regular UW Alumni gathering.

The Brahmas started slowly with their sloppy play putting them into a 0-10 first quarter deficit. I chalked most of this to it being Pierce's first game of the season while COD had one game under their belt.

After settling down, the Brahmas scored the next 30 points to win going away 30-10.

Congratulations Jason on win #1!

But, I don't know how many more of these games Paul's heart can take.
