The Gunn football team recorded yet another first in Thursday night’s 49-0 Santa Clara Valley El Camino Division victory over visiting Fremont.
It’s the first shutout recorded by the Titans under third-year coach Jason Miller and the first shutout of any kind since Oct. 19, 2012, when Gunn topped Los Altos, 42-0.
That 2012 team went 7-3 overall, including a 5-1 league record, earning the Titans a division title, though not a league title.
Gunn (3-0) hosts Los Altos (1-1 entering Friday’s game against Homestead) on Friday, April 9 at 7 p.m.
Evan Wiederhold scored twice on runs of 78 and 69 yards, quarterback James Lambert rushed for a pair of scores and also threw for two touchdowns, one to Richard Jackson IV, and the Titans won for the seventh time in their past eight games dating to last season.
Those are the kind of winning streaks that put schools into position for division titles. Even without the possibility of a title this year, Gunn looks like a team ready for prime time.
Wiederhold, who also recorded six tackles, rushed for 156 yards on just four carries. Lambert added 108 rushing yards and 100 passing yards for Gunn, which compiled 506 total offensive yards.
Kevin Green did a little bit of everything for the Titans, scoring a rushing touchdown, a passing touchdown and added an interception.
Green may even be the punter as far as anybody outside the team knows. The Titans haven’t needed to punt through three games this season.
Filippi Montes IV led Gunn with eight tackles. Noah Panousis and Niel Hanson each added seven.
Isaac Rotenberg scored five goals, including the first two of the game, and Sacred Heart Prep beat host Valley Christian, 20-7, in the battle of unbeaten teams in the West Catholic Athletic League on Thursday.
Sacred Heart Prep (7-0) never trailed in the contest, but the Warriors (7-1) were within 6-5 midway through the second period before the Gators scored five unanswered goals to take control.
The Gators limited Valley Christian to a pair of second-half goals. SHP goalies Griff Price and Wyatt Stenson combined for 11 saves, limiting the Warriors to a .280 scoring average.
Meanwhile, SHP scored at a .741 clip (20-for-27), including making all three penalty shots attempted.
Gavin West, a transfer from Connecticut, scored four goals and recorded a pair of assists for SHP and M-A transfer Michael Heller added three goals and an assist.
Luke Weigle, Tyler Hogan and Jake Tsotadze each scored twice and Will Swart scored a goal and had three assists. Harrison Rohlen scored once and recorded three steals.
Sacred Heart Prep hosts St. Ignatius in a WCAL game on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
Terra Nova scored four runs in the top of the seventh inning to edge host Castilleja in a nonleague game Thursday.
Alana Stull doubled to open the bottom of the seventh and advanced to third on Goldwasser’s groundout but was stranded there.
Castilleja scored four runs in the bottom of the second to take a 5-1 lead. Emma Foster tripled in a run during the rally.
Castilleja leadoff hitter Raveena Lele collected three hits and scored three times. Foster and Stull each added a pair of hits.
