FINALLY, The Camino League Opener at Camarillo H.S.

2015 Camino League Opener

Newbury Park Panthers (3-4, 0-0)
Camarillo Scorpions (3-4, 0-0)

After seven non-league games, it was finally time to play a Camino League game!

This year, the four JV teams in the Camino League (Camarillo, Newbury Park, Royal and Thousand Oaks) were all limping into the opening night of circuit play with identical 3-4 records. Although it did not appear to be a stellar year at the JV level for the league, it promised to make for some competitive games over the final three weeks of the 2015 campaign.

This week's Captains

Our leaders for the Camarillo game were #8 WR/CB Ian Albaeck, #55 LB Ameer Moukadan, #68 OT/DE Nick Krause and #9 QB/B Ruben Soria.

Cameron Brown returning the
opening kickoff

Ian Albaeck's 71 yard TD
catch and run was followed by . . .

. . . Matt Stein's three yard fumble recovery
return for a TD on the ensuing Kickoff

 We played good defense
in the first quarter

It would not last.

Ian Albaeck's 99 yard Pick-Six

Ian had another great game! He caught nine passes for 223 yards and two TDs. Defensively, he was in on three tackles and, of course, had this Pick-Six TD.

 Angel Farfan's ten yard return of a
recovered fumble led to . . .

. . . a short TD run by Ruben Soria
and a 28-0 first quarter lead!

Is it even possible to say enough about Ruben's leadership and toughness? I doubt it.

Ruben rushed 19 times for 78 yards and 3 TDs, was 16/21 passing for 275 yards and two TDs, was in on three tackles and intercepted a pass to end the game.


The Scorpions were not going away anytime soon.

Hunter Hoskins, a quickly developing rookie player, had his season come to an abrupt end when he broke his leg covering a punt in a freakish collision with one of his teammates.

At the intermission, we were clinging to a 35-21 lead.

We needed more of this on defense

The Final Score, in a wild one, was
Newbury Park (4-4, 1-0 CL) 49
Camarillo (3-5, 0-1 CL) 39

In the other Camino League JV game Friday night, Thousand Oaks defeated Royal 28-14.

Thus after the first of three Camino League weekends, the standings are:
1T. Newbury Park (4-4) 1-0
Thousand Oaks (4-4) 1-0
3T. Camarillo (3-5) 0-1
Royal (3-5) 0-1

This coming week's action shapes like this:
Newbury Park (4-4, 1-0 CL) at Royal (3-5, 0-1 CL)
Camarillo (3-5, 0-1 CL) at Thousand Oaks (4-4, 1-0 CL)

Reading Is FUNdamental

Jack Reacher is
