Palo Alto Knights off to solid start in football


The Palo Alto Knights' Youth Football League program has opened its 2010 season with two teams still undefeated following the first two weeks of action.

All five Palo Alto teams got their respective seasons under way two weeks ago with all five winning at Palo Alto High. Week 2 meant a trip to Emeryville this past Saturday to play the newest member of the NorCal Conference, the Emeryville Ravens.

The Knights' Jr. Pee Wee's. led by an explosive offense, won 30-0 with two touchdown runs from Ethan Stern and one from A.J Julian plus a 43 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jack Devine to Josh Brigel. PAT's were provided by Brigel and Devine. The Knights' defense -- led by Stern, Jamie Cullen and Zeke Cox -- did not allow the Ravens a first down while recording the shutout.

The Knights' Pee Wee's won their second game of the season with a 22-6 victory, led by Victor Sanchez scoring two touchdowns on 80 yards rushing. Quarterback Tench Cox threw for 80 yards, with a 50-yard strike for a touchdown to Matt Lewis, who also kicked two extra points. Palo Alto's defense only allowed six points was led by Steffan Lonski, Peter Snodgrass and Christian Rider. The Knights' Cadets and Jr. Midgets both were defeated to even their records at 1-1.

Palo Alto will travel to San Benito this Saturday to face the San Benito Cardinals.
