This year's football victory goes to Monte Vista in Danville's biggest cross-town rivalry

by Jordan M. Doronila

Hordes of kids leapt over fences, invaded the fields, and raised a red-and-black flag at San Ramon Valley High School after the Mustangs stampeded over the Wolves on the football field last Friday evening.

Wow, this really sounds like it was written by a sore loser San Ramon Valley Football fan, this story is a joke. Whoever wrote this should be fired, this person is obviously writing this story as a fan of San Ramon, stories like this should be told as a neutral bystander simply telling the story as it really was. Here are a few qoutes, "Some Mustang fans continued yelling, "Wolves *#@!" as they drove away on Hartz Avenue.", and "However, there were few friendly moments between the two schools after the game's end. Mustang fans gloated after their team's victory and sang: "Nah, nah, nah, nah ... nah, nah, nah, nah ... yea, yea, yea ... say good-bye!" Cheerleaders wearing black lined up together on the football field, waved their pom poms, and chanted "Go Monte Vista" in front of Wolves fans. These are simply attacks to the Monte Vista student body, trying to make us look like jerks. One more thing, this was a football game right? There were maybe three short paragraphs that actually talked about the game and the most important part of the event, the players. I'm a member of the Monte Vista varsity football team, and I think that whoever wrote this should stop wasting paper talking about how "bad" Monte Vista students are, and focus on the players; and how much hard work and preperation they put into this season. So I know that it must be frustrating that you could'nt keep that trophy for one more year, and that it must stink that MV ended your first perfect season since the mid 60's, but take care of those issues with yourself, and not in the paper.

This story is more of a sympathy to San Ramon, which is unfair. We lost the rivalry game last year, and no one cared. This writer should have written more about Monte Vista's victory instead of trying to give a sob story for the Wolves. Our boys worked hard to win this game. Go MUSTANGS!!!!
