High School Notebook

September 20, 2000|MIKE BRESNAHAN

It was a safe bet that Simi Valley, coming off a 1-9 season, would start slowly.

After all, Simi Valley administrators waited until May to hire a coach to replace fired Ron Veres.

The Pioneers knew they would be without their best player last year, wide receiver Calvin Bell, now at Michigan.

Small wonder the start of the Steve Carroll era has been slower than slow.

Simi Valley (0-2) lost by 41-0 scores against Ventura and Saugus.

The Pioneers totaled seven yards of offense against Saugus. Of the Pioneers' 52 plays, 28 resulted in no gain or a loss.

Saugus tried to help, fumbling five times, but Simi Valley penetrated Centurion territory only once, advancing to the 36.
