San Ramon headed to Coliseum for NCS finals

Wolves trounce Pinole Valley for NCS championship

Temperatures in Dublin were frigid Saturday night but the San Ramon Valley High School Wolves were hot as they tromped over Pinole Valley, 42-7, on their way to winning the North Coast Section 3A football championships. This is the second time San Ramon has won the regional championship and the first since 2004.

The Wolves quarterback Joe Southwick was 17 of 23 for 268 yards. Pinole Valley started off with a drive ending with a touchdown pass, but the Wolves answered them in the second quarter with three touchdowns, going into halftime 21-7.

The Wolves will now compete Saturday at McAfee Coliseum in Oakland in the NCS 3A final, against Cardinal Newman from Santa Rosa, winners of the Redwood Empire. The game begins at 3:45 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 8. At the Coliseum, Southwick will face Newman's quarterback Max Pond, who is also renowned in the Bay Area.

De La Salle faces California High at 7 p.m. that same evening at the Coliseum for the NCS 4A final.
