Page 6, Cloverdale Reveille, September 24, 1997 Eagles have good wnn over St, Vnncent Going into last Saturday&apos;s game St. Vincent's had the Redwood Empire's #1 ranked, small schools, football team and a home field featuring little peaks and valleys. The field remains the same, but it seemed that the host Mustangs spent all Saturday chasing Clo- verdale uphill as the Eagles rolled to a 43-32 victory. Cloverdale took a 12-0 lead be- fore the game was three minutes old, built a 30-6 halftime advan- tage and led 43-18 going into the 4th quarter. The Eagles did this with an impressive defense that shut down St. Vincent's vaunted aerial attack and an all-out assault by running back T.J.. Bird. In the first half alone, the 195 pound senior had 274 yards on 12 carries and 4 touchdowns. That total included runs of 73 yards (TD), 74 yards (TD), 48 yards (TD), and 51 yards. After leaving the game briefly before the half with a bruised knee, Bird finished the afternoon with 359 yards on 29 carries and one more TD. St. Vincent's star quarterback Michael White, featured in the Santa Rosa paper for his passing prowess the week before, was ha- rassed all day by Eagle defenders. His first pass of the game was intercepted by David Smith who returned it 32 yards to the Mus- tang 3-yard line. On the next play Chris Lands burst into the end zone for the Eagles. White would finish with 10 completions on 14 attempts for 89 yards, but he was picked off four times and sacked on five occasions. First half inter- ceptions by Dustin Haug and Brady Cox led to Clover dalescores as did a fumble recovery by Logan Crump. Mike Castrillo hauled in the other interception in the third quarter. Despite the 30-6 deficit, St. Vin- cent's breathed some life to start the second half when Ray Tam- blyn raced 82 yards with the kick- off and the Eagles were pinned on stadium expecting some more of Bird, Brady Cox dropped back and hit sophomore receiver Brendon Hampton with an 86-yard com- pletion. Three plays later Cox scored on a quarterback sneak. Even after Tamblyn took the next kickoff coast-to-coast, 91 yards, it was no longer a question of IF the Eagles would respond; it was when and how. The answer came in the form of a 4-play, 71 yard drive highlight- ed by a 43-yard pass play from Cox to Hampton. This time the connection was for only half as long, but it was a spectacular one. Hampton snared the ball over his shoulder with one hand at an awk- ward angle, regained his balance and was off to the races. Mustang reserve quarterback Cory Griffin did come off the bench for the final period and threw for over 200 yards in 12 minutes of action, leading St. Vincent's to two scores and another threat in the final minute of play. Tamblyn would be on the receiving end of most of that yardage, finishing the game with over 300 yards in total offense. ,. The Eagles finished with six sacks, led by Mark Selberg and David Briseno. On the other side of the ball, the Selberg-Briseno duo was responsible for opening up many of the gaps that set Bird off on his ramblings. Lands, in partic- ular, created havoc in the St. Vin- cent's backfield with his blitzes from the outside. Steele Harden and Kevin Cookman either assist- ed on sacks or consistently dis- rupted the Mustang offense. Cox finished the game with 507 passing for 168 yards and an in- terception. He now has thrown for 321 yards in two games on only 14 attempts. This Friday the Eagles host Hoopa, with a 5:30 Junior Varsity kickoff, followed by the Varsity contest.
