Unbeaten Alta Loma, St. Paul Meet Tonight

October 08, 1998|GARY KLEIN

St. Paul will try to register its fourth consecutive shutout tonight when the Swordsmen play host to Alta Loma in a matchup of unbeaten football teams.

The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports West 2 at 7 p.m.

Under Coach Marijon Ancich, St. Paul (4-0) has defeated Mission Viejo, Long Beach Millikan, North Torrance and Blair by a combined score of 181-6.

The Swordsman defense features several outstanding players, including senior defensive back Marcell Almond.

"The teams we've seen St. Paul play against have not had the kinds of offenses that were capable of adjusting and adapting to what [St. Paul] was doing," Alta Loma Coach Tim Nelson said. "We feel we have enough versatility to make it work."

Alta Loma (4-0) has defeated Claremont, Glendora, Ayala and Nogales.

The Braves are led by sophomore quarterback Adam Nachreiner, who passed for 250 yards and a touchdown last week in a 28-13 victory over Nogales. Wide receiver Ben Burroughs and running back Shayne Scruggs also play defense and anchor the Alta Loma secondary.


Sixteen of the top boys' water polo teams in the state, including six of the top eight in the Southern Section Division I poll, will compete in the Southern California Invitational this weekend at Heritage Park in Irvine.

Valley Christian's girls' volleyball team began the week ranked second in the state behind Mountain View St. Francis.

Valley Christian is one of six teams from the Southland in the top 10. Newport Harbor is third, Marina fourth, Mater Dei sixth, Mira Costa ninth and San Marcos 10th.
