Lathrop held Oakdale scoreless in the first half Friday night and coasted to 26-14 win over the visiting Mustangs in sophomore Valley Oak League action at Bennie Gatto Field.

After a 43-yard touchdown run earlier in the second quarter, Tremayne Willis plunged in from the 2-yard line with 46 seconds left in the first half for a 20-0 halftime lead. Willis added a 6-yard touchdown in the fourth period and the Spartans got on the board just 50 seconds into the game on a 73-yard pass from Idowu Olalege to Anthony Santos.

Michael Ramos had two interceptions for Lathrop and the Spartans offensive line of Jordan Hernandez, Isaac Blasé, Jared Atkins, Justin Ramos, Cristian Basulto and Bob Walls dominated the Oakdale defense.

Manteca 38, Sierra 0

 Cameron Beamon ran the ball 20 times for 216 of the Buffaloes’ 303 rushing yards.

 The offensive line of Austin Klinesmith, Tyler Welch, Jobdir Mahal, Angel Pulido, Jacob Tolbert, and Kyle Reis was dominating for Manteca. Devyn Gonzalez had 14 carries for 71 yards with two touchdowns. Gino Campiatti had touchdown passes of  30 yards to Joey Goodman and a 45 yards to Gerson Gomez.

Campiatti, Tyler Welch, and Adrian Gallegos led the Buffaloes defense that allowed just 109 yards and has been giving up less than a touchdown per game.

 Jo Jo Dunham and Kamari Williams played well on defense for the Timberwolves.

East Union 33,
Weston Ranch 0

Three times the Cougars got into the red zone and came away empty, but none hurt as much as the last time.

 Having penetrated to the 5-yard line in the third quarter, back-to-back sacks by Jaysen Reindel and Jose Vargas knocked Weston Ranch back when Cruz Padilla recovered a Cougars fumble and powered 86 yards for a Lancers touchdown, breaking a tackle midway through his dash and giving East Union a 20-0 lead.

 Following a sloppy start – both teams exchanged fumbles twice with Adrian Saucedo and Ruben Gallegos each recovering a fumble for the Lancers and Alex Kukor forcing one – Patrick Sholund got East Union on the board with a 5-yard touchdown run for a 6-0 lead.

Sholund added a 16-yard touchdown run, Andrew Sena intercepted a pass to set up a touchdown by Adrian Saudeda and Tony Martinez added a 9-yard touchdown run to round out the Lancers scoring. Sholund, Mason James and Jake Harries carried the bulk of the offensive load for East Union.

Reindal, Jose Vargas and Nick Sims played well on defense for the Lancers.
