San Ramon now stands second in the East Bay Athletic League. They were scheduled to play Amador again Tuesday, Oct. 21, and if the Wolves again beat the Dons, they would rank as first in league. This was expected to be a challenge, however, as Amador is the strongest team in the league next to SRVHS.
"Although they are a really strong team, if we have the energy and desire like we had the first time, we will beat them," said senior Amy Mulligan.
San Ramon varsity football extended its winning streak to 6-0 on Friday, Oct. 17, defeating the Granada Matadors, 35-17. San Ramon's offense started out strong, scoring within the first two minutes, but then stalled, allowing Granada to score. The Wolves recovered by the second quarter when quarterback Joe Southwick connected with Mark Huntley in the end zone for a 12-yard touchdown pass. Just four seconds later the Wolves scored again when Nick Russo intercepted a pass and ran for 22 yards into San Ramon's end zone. Just before the second quarter ended Southwick completed a four-yard pass to Josh Madonick, making the score 28-10, San Ramon leading, at halftime.
San Ramon's defense was caught off-guard by Granada's complex offense at first, but once the Wolves caught on, they only allowed Granada to score once more, late in the fourth quarter. San Ramon was lucky to play its least challenging teams first. However, the Wolves are now facing a very tough next few weeks as they play Cal, Foothill, De La Salle, and Monte Vista, respectively.
"This is our home stretch now," said senior captain Garrison Goodman. "This is what we have been training for since the spring. We are really looking forward to the rest of the season. It is going to be high intensity football from here on out."
