They bumped, they bruised and they rolled all over the visiting Sonora Wildcats in a 44-14 blowout for the Sierra High freshman football team in recent Valley Oak League action.

Sierra (6-2) had little difficulty disposing of the Wildcats (5-3), going into halftime with a 22-0 lead. The Timberwolves would add a score in the third and another in the fourth quarter on their way to the one-sided victory.

“Our offensive line pushed Sonora’s defense back allowing us almost 500 yards of offense,” Sierra head coach Jim Anderson said. “They worked hard and they worked as a team.”

The Timberwolves got their first two scores from Jarrod Silveira, who scored on a 13-yard run as well as a 21-yard score in the first half. L.J. Alofatuli added a 45-yard score and Andrew Perry raced for 73 yards on just two carries with a touchdown.

Alofatuli led the charge on defense with 10 tackles.

Manteca 35, Lathrop 0

The Buffaloes defensive unit put together a dominating performance, blanking the Lathrop Spartans in a VOL shutout.

Hector Soto rushed for three scored and 126 yards to lead the Manteca ground game, while Zack Hendrix hauled in a Lathrop fumble to help lead to Manteca’s first score and get the defensive unit going early in the first half.

“We went into Lathrop and totally dominated every phase of the football game,” Manteca head coach Jon Shaefer said. “I was happy with the way our first team’s played, before turning the game over to our second and third team players.”

Manteca will have its hands full Friday when they play host to the Oakdale Mustangs Thursday.

“We have a big week of practice to prepare for the 2011 VOL Freshman Championship game against Oakdale.”
