How badly did Alemany beat the St. Bernard Vikings on Friday night? Well, the score was 20-3. Playing at St. Bernard, Alemany dominated the Vikings on offense, defense and special teams. St. Bernard held a raffle at halftime, and Alemany dominated that, too. An Indian fan walked off with $88. More important to Alemany Coach Enrique Lopez, his team walked off with its first win after playing Los Banos to a 25-25 tie last week. "This is definitely a feather in our caps," Lopez said.

The next time you see Marina Coach Dave Thompson, don't be surprised to see a few more gray hairs on his head. After losing a close game to Corona del Mar last week in the last minute, the Vikings were on the other end of a close score when they defeated the El Rancho, 24-23, Friday night at El Rancho. "Now I know what Corona del Mar felt last week," Thompson said. "This was another great football game."

Marina defeated top-ranked Irvine, 4-2, in a nonleague girls' water polo game Friday at Heritage Park in Irvine, but the Vikings won't have much time to celebrate the upset victory.

"This is great, I'm very happy and everything, but it's not over yet," Marina Coach Dave Carlson said. The Vikings (13-4) are in the middle of the toughest stretch on their schedule.
