Tall targets showcase Camarillo-CI matchup

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

A pair of 6-foot-7 targets will be on display tonight during's Domino's Game of the Week between Camarillo and Channel Islands highs.

Camarillo's Jake Maulhardt was well-known locally before he set the state record for receptions in a game last month at Canyon High.

"Jake is probably their primary offensive threat," said Channel Islands coach Gary Porter. "They throw it pretty well and they threw it to set up the run."

Meanwhile, Channel Islands features 6-foot-7 tight end Jeremiah Valoaga

"He's excellent," said Camarillo coach Dennis Riedmiller. "They try to get him the ball. He's a big, strong target. He's an athlete... We're going to have to take him away from them or he's going to be a pain for us on defense."

Valoaga has caught 26 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns, including a pair of TD catches in last week's 50-14 over Santa Paula.

He also has 29 tackles, two sacks and four fumble recoveries playing defensive end.

Maulhardt, of course, is in the process of challenging Richard Mullaney's year-old CIF receiving records.

The 6-foot-7, 215-pound target already has 73 catches for 922 yards and six touchdowns. He had 28 catches for 351 yards and three scores from sophomore quarterback Michael Marin in the 52-28 loss at Canyon Sept. 23.

Upon starting quarterback Travis Valdez's return last week, Maulhardt reeled in 13 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns in Camarillo's 49-15 win over Oak Park.

Channel Islands approaches litmus test at Camarillo

Two years ago, the Channel Islands High football opened 5-0 before suffering through a winless Pacific View League campaign.

This fall, behind the play of quarterback Steven Gutierrez, running back Richard Gray and tight end Jeremiah Valoaga, the Raiders have started 4-1.

Tonight's visit to traditional PVL power Camarillo, the Ventura County Star's Domino's Game of the Week, may show how much the program has progressed in head coach Gary Porter's three-year tenure.

"We've had this start before," said Channel Islands third-year coach Gary Porter. "We haven't competed in our own league.

Gutierrez has completed 57 of 100 passes for 747 yards and six touchdowns.

"He's shown a lot of poise," said Porter. "He runs the offense well. The team rallies around him."

Gray leads Ventura County with 750 yards rushing and seven touchdowns.

"He runs hard," said Porter. "We lead with a fullback and try to get him in favorable situations."

Those situations have become more frequent now that the Raiders have solved some holes in the offensive line. Guard Luis Ramirez and tackle Alejandro Magana return to form the left side, but junior center Javier Vasquez has performed well as a junior and guard Vince Cerrano has made the transition from the defensive side of the ball.

Defensively, Channel Islands has been boosted by the limited return of middle linebacker Richard Palmer, who suffered a broken leg in August.

"He'll get some spot play," said Porter.

The Raiders haven't played the Scorpions within a one-score game since a 30-24 loss in 2004.

But Channel Islands certainly has Camarillo coach Dennis Riedmiller's attention this year. 

 "They're a very good football team," said Riedmiller. "They have very good skill position athletes. They get after it. They're aggressive. That's a big difference. This is a team that can definitely beat us."

Channel Islands have dropped the past six meetings with Camarillo by an average margin of 46-8.

"This isn't going to be a 56-0 game," said Riedmiller. "These guys are going to come out here to beat you. Right now, we're all 0-0 and this is a game for a championship. That's how we're looking at it.

Camarillo boosted ahead of PVL opener

Dennis Riedmiller feels like more like a general manager after the trading deadline this month than the Camarillo High football head coach.

The Scorpions (2-3) welcomed starting quarterback Travis Valdez back for last week's 49-15 win over Oak Park. The junior had missed the first four games of the season with a broken hand.

"It's like making a trade," said Riedmiller. "All of a sudden you have this stud coming in that you've never had. That's what we've got with Valdez."

Tonight, when surprising Channel Islands (4-1) visits, Camarillo is boosted by the return of junior slot receiver Corbin Covey, who missed the first half of the season with ankle surgery.

"He'll really help our offense out," said Riedmiller.

Covey had 26 catches for 393 yards as a sophomore.

Camacho lifts CI at the buzzer

Jose Deharo tied the game with less than 30 seconds to play and Gabriel Camacho followed with a buzzer-beating layup as the Channel Islands boys' basketball team nipped rivals Hueneme, 40-38, Friday night.

Deharo had 11 points and Bobby Diaz and Camacho had 10 points apiece for the Raiders (10-8, 1-2), who were also lifted by Alfredo Raya's nine rebounds and Jeremiah Valoaga's eight rebounds.

"He had some huge buckets in the fourth quarter," said Channel Islands coach Brad Bowman of Camacho, who scored all 10 points in the second half.

Emilio Morales had 21 points for Hueneme (9-10, 0-3), which dug out of a eight-point hole to take a 38-36 last-minute lead.

"It was a good basketball environment," said Bowman. "It was a lot of fun tonight.

Northern ranking shakeup

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar
Oxnard's first regular-season loss in 23 games cost the Yellowjackets a place in the Northern Division rankings.

After entering Week 5 of the season No. 6 in the polls, Oxnard was dropped after a 31-21 loss to Ventura on the road.

That was one of five Northern Division changes.

The first four teams remain the same: 1. Moorpark, 2. Valencia, 3. St. Bonaventure, 4. Westlake.

Atascadero moved up to No. 5 in the poll, replacing Newbury Park, which dropped two slots after its 35-14 loss to Moorpark. Unbeaten Channel Islands was promoted to No. 5, while Pacific View League rival Hueneme is No. 8. Jumping into the ranking at No. 10 is Buena.

CI, Hueneme make top 10

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar
Two seasons ago, Channel Islands was winless. From 2006-08, the Raiders' football team lost 17 straight games.

Hueneme did not win a game in 2008 and scored just 64 points.

On Monday, the two Pacific View League teams were ranked among the top 10 football  programs in the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division.

Both off to 4-0 starts, Channel Islands and Hueneme were ranked No. 8 and No. 9, respectively.

Seven Ventura County schools made the list: 1. St. Bonaventure, 2. Moorpark, 4. Westlake, 5. Newbury Park, 6. Oxnard.

Friday Football Rewind

Some news, notes and highlights from Friday night's games:

Oaks Christian 28, Skyline 25: The Lions took a big step toward a bowl berth by passing their toughest test of the season on the road in Washington. Oaks (3-0) jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, and managed to hold off a late Skyline charge. Malcolm Jones (19 carries, 133 yards) scored the game-winning touchdown on a 48-yard run in the fourth quarter, and Max Napolitano clinched the win with an interception in the waning seconds. Playing in the state he will soon reside full time, Oaks quarterback Nick Montana, a University of Washington commit, completed 21 of 32 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns to hand Skyline QB Jake Heaps his first high school loss. But the most pressing question of the night might have been how many times ESPNU showed Joe Montana and his wife on the split screen. Can you say overkill?

Moorpark 31, Ventura 7: Moorpark (3-0) employed a single-QB offense with Brody Rohach taking all the snaps and Brian Blechen being used as a receiver and defensive back. Rohach passed for 177 yards and touchdowns of 50, 42 and 23 yards. Should we expect this to continue? Ever-coy Moorpark coach Tim Lins wasn't telling. Ventura (0-2) cut down on its turnovers, but its offense couldn't generate much against Moorpark's strong defense.

Channel Islands 28, Santa Clara 7: Raise your hand if you had Channel Islands and Hueneme both starting the season 3-0. Didn't think so. But CI used its passing attack to improve to 3-0 for the first time in 19 years. QB Bobby Diaz was 13 of 20 for 209 yards and one touchdown. Santa Clara committed four turnovers to fall to 0-2.

Nordhoff 14, Santa Ynez 12: Nordhoff held off the Santa Ynez comeback when Logan Crow intercepted a pass with 40 seconds remaining. The Rangers led 14-0 behind touchdowns from Cody Burgess (117 yards rushing) and Crow. Santa Ynez failed on a two-point conversion to tie the game on its second score with 7:38 to play. Nordhoff QB Skyler Logsdon was 10 of 20 for 133 yards.

St. Bonaventure 42, L.A. Jordan 21: Friday night lights was Friday afternoon sunlight for the Seraphs (3-0) as they played a day game. Senior QB Logan Meyer had his best statistical performance of the season, completing 18 for 25 for 312 yards and three touchdowns in just three quarters. Meyer started 7 for 7 for 187 yards and two touchdowns.

Fillmore 27, Bishop Diego 25:  The Flashes rallied for their first win when Zach Golson caught a pass from Corey Cole on 3rd-and 11 and sprinted 85 yards down the right sideline for the game-winning touchdown. Bishop Diego opened the game by scoring a touchdown on the very first play from scrimmage - a 72-yard scamper by Brandon Gonzalez - and led 13-0 at one point.

Oxnard 30, San Luis Obispo 14: That long bus ride was much more pleasurable thanks to those 20 points Oxnard scored in the fourth quarter to rally for the win. The Yellowjackets trailed 14-10 entering the final quarter, but Henry Fernandez ran for three touchdowns. Fernandez compiled 103 of his 166 yards rushing in the fourth quarter. Alex Gavin had 103 yards rushing.

Thacher 52, Cuyama Valley 6: QB Austin Krause threw for 143 yards and three touchdowns for the Toads in an eight-man road victory.
