Prep football capsules: Week 7

By
From page B9 | October 12, 2012 |

Armijo (1-5, vs. Vacaville (3-3)

When: Today, 7:30 p.m.

Where: Tom Zunino Stadium, Vacaville

Series: Vacaville leads 54-29-10

Last meeting: 2011, Vacaville won 63-3

Last week: Armijo lost to Wood 34-0; Vacaville defeated Vintage, 49-7

Of note: The Indians are hoping to get their offense back on track after it stalled last week against Wood. Prior to that, it was chugging along after a big nonleague win over Fairfield. . . . The Bulldogs have won the last two meetings by a combined score of 129-3 and have rolled up 275 points the last four times they’ve played the Indians. . . . This is the 94th meeting between the two teams. Vacaville’s won the last seven meetings and 18 of the last 19. . . . Only one game in Vacaville’s all-time top 10 rushing games has come against Armijo (543 in 2008, which ranks eighth), while seven of the Indians top-10 in rushing yards allowed have come from Vacaville.

Prediction: Vacaville 54, Armijo 14

Fairfield (1-4) vs. Bethel (4-2)

When: Saturday, 7:30 p.m.

Where: Corbus Field, Vallejo High

Series: Bethel leads 4-2

Last meeting: 2011, Bethel won 33-26

Last week: Fairfield lost to Benicia, 42-0; Bethel defeated Vanden, 29-20

Of note: The undermanned Falcons will look to get back on the board after last week’s blanking. . . . With fewer than 25 players, staying in games late can be a challenge for Fairfield. . . . Fairfield is 0-3 against Bethel in SCAC games and has dropped four straight to the Jaguars.

If you go: Take Interstate 80 west to Vallejo and exit at Redwood Street. Go west on Redwood to Tuolumne Street and turn left. Go south on Tuolumne to Nebraska Street and turn right. Look for the school and Corbus Field on the right.

Prediction: Bethel 38, Fairfield 21

Rodriguez (2-4) vs. Vintage (2-4)

When: Today, 7:30 p.m.

Where: Coach Ed Hopkins Memorial Stadium, Rodriguez

Series: Vintage leads 1-0

Last meeting: 2002, Vintage won 62-0

Last week: Rodriguez lost to Napa, 34-12 Vintage lost to Vacaville, 49-7

Of note: After being one of two city teams to score last week, the Mustangs hope they can keep the Crushers at bay this time. . . . Homecoming night provides an opportune time to get the team’s first MEL win. . . . The only previous meeting marked Rodriguez’s biggest shutout loss and biggest margin of defeat, the only home game in their 1-9 inaugural season that wasn’t played on campus. It was moved to Fairfield because of high winds that threatened to topple portable lights.

Prediction: Rodriguez 21, Vintage 20

Vanden (2-4) vs. American Canyon (5-1)

When: Today, 7:30 p.m.

Where: American Canyon High

Series: Vanden leads 1-0

Last meeting: 2011, Vanden won 38-21

Last week: Vanden lost to Bethel, 29-20; American Canyon lost to Vallejo, 33-28

Of note: Coming off a close loss last week and with its passing game improving, Vanden will look to get ahead of American Canyon early. . . . The Wolves, despite being previously unbeaten, are coming off a narrow defeat by Vallejo and will be looking to even their SCAC record.

If you go: Take Interstate 80 west. Take the American Canyon Road exit and go west. Turn right on Newell Drive. American Canyon High is at 3000 Newell Dr.

Prediction: Vanden 34, American Canyon 28

Wood (3-3) vs. Napa (4-2)

When: Today, 7:30 p.m.

Where: Memorial Stadium, Napa

Series: Napa leads 17-5

Last meeting: 2011, Napa won 41-10

Last week: Wood defeated Armijo, 34-0; Napa defeated Rodriguez, 34-12

Of note: The Wildcats opened league play with a convincing shutout of Armijo, but will face a tougher task tonight against Napa, which had an easy time with Rodriguez in its opener despite giving up two late fourth-quarter scores. . . . The Indians have won the last nine meetings and all 10 played in Napa. . . . The Indians rely a pounding running game, led by Zach Jones, who ran for 199 yards against the Mustangs. . . . Quarterback Kyle Beaver is also a threat for Napa, though he only needed to throw five passes a week ago due to the success of the Indians’ running game. . . . The Wildcats average nearly 23 points a game while the Indians put up nearly 30 a contest.

If you go: Take Highway 12 west into Napa, where it merges with Highway 29. Follow Highway 29 north to Lincoln Avenue. Turn right on Lincoln and take an immediate left on California Boulevard. Turn right on Myrtle Avenue, which will take you into the Memorial Stadium parking lot.

Prediction: Napa 35, Wood 20

Rio Vista (3-4) vs. San Juan (3-3)

When: Today, 7 p.m.

Where: Rio Vista High

Series: Rio Vista leads 2-0

Last meeting: 2011, Rio Vista won 51-22

Last week: Rio Vista beat Encina Prep, 50-30; San Juan lost to Highlands 49-6

Of note: The Rams are coming off a big win over Encina Prep, led by a huge game on the ground. . . . The Rams ran for 419 yards, according to www.maxpreps.com, with Chase Marlowe racking up 179 and Nick Lopez running for 142. . . . Rio Vista has been putting up the points lately and is averaging nearly 33 a game, though its roster lists just 22 players . . . San Juan only has three more players listed on its roster than the Rams and averages 24.6 points per outing, scoring just 13 points in its last two games (both losses)

Prediction: Rio Vista 45, San Juan 34

Vacaville Christian (3-3) vs. Encina Prep (3-3)

When: Today, 7 p.m.

Where: Vacaville Christian

Series: Vacaville Christian leads 2-0

Last meeting: 2011, Vacaville Christian won 50-8

Last week: Vacaville Christian had a bye; Encina Prep lost to Rio Vista 50-30

Of note: It’s homecoming for VCS, with its sights set on another Sierra Delta League win. . . The Falcons have only managed 12 pouts (two losses) the last couple of weeks and average 21 on the season. . . . VCS ran for 138 yards last week against Golden Sierra, with freshman Brody Lambert leading the way with 74.

Prediction: Vaca Christian 35, Encino Prep 30

Last week’s prediction record: 6-0; Season record: 32-11
