The Campolindo High football team may still be undefeated after its 49-14 win over host Dougherty Valley on Friday, but Cougars coach Kevin Macy doesn't sound like a man content.
After his team's victory, Macy said his team still has strides to make before the postseason.
"It's one of those things," Macy said. "We are having a great year, but we may not be tooled for the playoffs."
In spite of what the veteran coach said, Campolindo (9-0, 5-0 DFAL) looks tooled for any task at the moment. Quarterback Andrew Zolintakis accounted for 249 passing yards and five touchdowns. He also ran for a score.
Receiver Justin Dunn also had a big night with seven catches for 153 yards and four touchdowns.
"Dunn just had an incredible night," Macy said. "Zolintakis had his usual, steady performance. You can always count on Zolintakis."
Dougherty Valley (4-5, 1-4) never led in the game and trailed 35-14 at halftime. The Wildcats did get a pair of long touchdowns, a 70-yard reception by Sam Tarasow and 76-yard run by Aaron Do.
But in the end, Campolindo's balanced offense -- Nick Fadelli also had 12 carries for 152 yards -- was too much to handle.
Miramonte 42, Las Lomas 21: In a back-and-forth contest, the Matadors ended up prevailing over the visiting Knights.
After a scoreless first quarter, both teams combined for five touchdowns in the second.
Las Lomas (5-4, 3-2 DFAL) got things going with a 15-play drive that culminated with Jack Kane's 1-yard rushing touchdown. The Matadors responded on the following possession when Drew Anderson connected with Will Fuller for a 31-yard touchdown.
With 3:18 left until halftime, Las Lomas' Zack Fulks made a sensational one-handed interception and returned it 83 yards for a touchdown. But Miramonte (7-2, 4-1 DFAL) wasted little time answering with two touchdowns to close the half with a 21-14 lead.
The Matadors defense came up big in the second half, recording four interceptions, two by Jonathan McDonald. Fuller grabbed two of his three touchdowns in the fourth quarter as Miramonte pulled away.
Anderson finished with a sizzling 372 passing yards and five touchdowns on 24-of-37 attempts. Fuller (nine catches, 118 yards) and Dominic Paoletti (11 catches, 218 yards, one touchdown) were Anderson's favorite targets. Ray Clark rushed for 73 yards and had two touchdowns (one receiving).
Johnny Marinchak led the Knights with four catches for 75 yards and a touchdown.

Acalanes 31, Alhambra 18: Senior Peter Mitchell powered the Dons to victory on Senior Night, rushing for 177 yards and one touchdown on 34 carries.
Mitchell's inspired running in the third quarter especially helped Acalanes (7-3, 3-3 DFAL) turn a slim 15-12 halftime lead into a comfortable 29-12 advantage heading into the fourth quarter.
He opened the third quarter rushing the ball eight straight times to set-up his 8-yard touchdown run for a 22-12 lead. After a Bulldogs interception, the Dons gave the ball back to Mitchell, and he rushed three times for 39 yards to set up quarterback Casey Harrington's 36-yard pass to John Lauth, which upped Acalanes' lead to 29-12 with 46 seconds left in the quarter.
Alhambra (2-6-1, 1-4) led 12-7 midway through the second quarter after 28-yard touchdown pass from Joshua Evans to Monte Cabrera, but sputtered offensively coming out of the halftime break.
Harrington rushed for two touchdowns, threw for another and passed for 117 yards, while Evans passed for 248 yards and two touchdowns.
