Chabot sports roundup, Sept. 25



 The Chabot wrestling team had six individual placers at the West Hills Tournament, paced by AJ Cress, the close runner-up in the 174-pound division.

All but five of the state’s community college wrestling teams participated in the strong event, and Chabot finished seventh. Cress dropped a 4-3 decision to Abel Garcia of Sacramento City in the championship round.

Cress and Garcia have quite a rivalry brewing. It was Cress who beat Garcia in overtime in the championship match of the Sacramento City tourney to earn Tech-Fall California Community College Wrestler of the Week honors on Sept.20.

Other Chabot placers at West Hills were Brandon Julien (sixth, 125); Ryan Petersen (sixth, 165); Logan Atchinson (third, 184); Rafael Vega (sixth, 184); Lazaro Carrasco (sixth, 197).

Atchinson defeated Angel Verduzzo of Cerritos 6-3 in the third-place match. Heavyweight Chumkaur Dhaliwal was out with an injury.

Fresno City earned the team title with 131.5 points, and Chabot had 61 points. The Gladiators will next compete in the Modesto Tournament on Oct. 7.


The Chabot men’s and women’s soccer teams will open Coast Conference play this week, with the men hosting district-rival Las Positas at 4 p.m. and the women traveling to Evergreen Valley in San Jose, both games on Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Brandon Sosa leads the Chabot men (1-7) with three goals, and Sydney Hollingsworth paces the Chabot women (1-3-1) with four goals and an assist.


The Gladiators (0-4) will complete nonconference play at De Anza (1-3) in Cupertino Saturday. Kickoff is 1 p.m. Both teams are coming off tough losses, Chabot falling to CCSF 48-6 and De Anza falling to Laney 60-6.

Chabot sophomore quarterback Johnny O’Brien is ranked eighth in the state in passing yards per game with 244.0. He completed 17 of 30 attempts against CCSF, including a 14-yard scoring strike to Malik Langham with 4:24 left in the first half which cut the deficit to 14-6.

But the Gladiators were limited to just 32 net yards rushing against the perennial state powerhouse. The Rams were led by Isaiah Floyd’s 199 yards rushing and three touchdowns.


The Gladiators (0-4) dropped a Coast crossover match 3-0 at San Jose City. They will host De Anza at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
