WEEKLY ATHLETICS RECAP

Chabot weekly sports recap, Fall 2016 first edition

Chabot weekly sports recap, first edition
Football 
The Chabot defense tossed a shutout in the second half, but it wasn't enough to overcome a 14-point halftime deficit in a 21-7 loss to host Siskiyous on Sept. 3, in the teams' season openers. 
Gladiators linebacker Colton Keahi had a stout game with seven solo tackles, and Malik Henderson played well on offense with a 15-yard reception. The teams had similar statistics on offense, but turnovers made the difference. Chabot lost possession five times on three fumbles and two interceptions, and Siskiyous made just one turnover. 
After Siskiyous took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, Chabot evened the score on a 48-yard, 10-play drive capped by an 8-yard touchdown pass from Jon O'Brien to Leroy Elliott Jr., also a track star in the hurdles. 
Josh Revay paced the Chabot receivers with five catches for 90 yards. Elliott and Tahir Rasheed-Mills had four receptions apiece for a combined 73 yards. Chabot's DeAngelo Stubbs led all ball carriers with 38 yards rushing on seven carries in the defensive-minded struggle, 
Chabot (0-1) will look to rebound against longtime East Bay rival Diablo Valley (0-1) at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10 at Gladiator Stadium. 
Men's soccer 
The Gladiators (2-0) are off to a rousing start with nine goals overall under coach Tony Igwe. Chabot pounded host Marin 5-2 on Aug. 30, and then fended off visiting College of Redwood 4-3 on Sept. 2. 
Chabot will look to keep the good times rolling at home against Napa Valley on Sept. 7. 
Against Redwood, Juan Lara led the way with two goals and an assist. Also scoring were Justyn Raygoza and Moises Becerre, who had the game-winner assisted by Lara. 
Against Marin, Raygoza, a James Logan High graduate, got the Gladiators off to a flying start with a monster goal from about 40 yards in the first minute. 
"I just won the ball from an opponent, looked up and the goalie was out, and I hit it over him," Raygoza said of his stroke of brilliance. 
Overall, the Gladiators are strong in the middle with Isaac Mensah, Lara, Raygoza and John Sanchez. 
Men's cross country 
The Las Positas Hawks men's team (also represented by Chabot Athletes) took third place out of 13 teams at the NorCal Cross Country Preview at Sierra College.   
Leading the way were the top two freshmen competitors in the meet. Zach Connelly finished third in the 4-mile race in a time of 22:22.2, and David Frisbie was eighth in 22:43.8. 
The Hawks are looking to continue their success at the Lou Vasquez Invitational on Sept. 22 in Golden Gate Park, when the Lady Hawks will open their season.   
Women's soccer 
The Gladiators opened the season with back-to-back defeats against Mendocino (4-2) and Modesto (4-0).  
Olga Montano and Breanna Aranda scored against Mendocino, and Erica Alarcon and captain Gabriella Nunez had assists. 
Chabot hosted Feather River on Sept. 6. 
Women's volleyball 
The young Gladiators (1-3) fell twice in the Chabot Mini tournament, 3-1 against Siskiyous and 3-0 against Southwestern Oregon. Chabot will next host Simpson University on Sept. 16.
