Kavion Augustine and Ahki Muhammad wear nos. 1 and 2 for the James Logan High football team, and they were a 1-2 punch in the Colts' 41-14 nonleague win over visiting Washington on Friday night.
Augustine had two interceptions and caught a 16-yard touchdown pass, and Muhammad rushed for 152 yards and three touchdowns in the victory.
Logan (6-2) got back in the win column after having a five-game winning streak snapped last week in a 49-7 loss to De La Salle in a rematch of last year's North Coast Section Division I title game. The Colts hope the experience of playing the powerhouse Spartans better prepares them for this year's upcoming playoff run.
"I think it gave us motivation to work even harder," Augustine said of last week's loss. "To get beat that bad, it's made us work harder to try to get better so if we encounter them again, we can do better."
Augustine's two interceptions came in the first half as Logan led 14-0. The first pick came on a deep pass in the end zone and the second on another deep pass that he read well and sat back on to make the interception.
Amari Davis had two touchdowns runs for Logan, including one on the opening drive. Muhammad's first score was a 65-yard burst in the second quarter. He added a 4-yard run in the third quarter, and the Colts recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff to set up Augustine's touchdown catch from quarterback Christian Leota.
Davis and Muhammad both scored again in the fourth quarter.
Washington (4-4) got on the board in the third when Nate Woudstra caught a 7-yard touchdown pass from Tylan Vinson. Woudstra finished with six catches for 74 yards and 21 carries for 67 yards. Vinson also added a touchdown run in the fourth.
De La Salle 63, Amador Valley 14: The host Spartans (8-0) piled up 470 yards of offense with the first team out at halftime in an easy win over the Dons (5-3).
Chris Williams completed 9 of 13 passes for 126 yards and two touchdowns. Anthony Talaugon rushed for 91 yards and three touchdowns. De La Salle's defense held Amador Valley to 33 yards rushing.
The Spartans never punted, scoring touchdowns on all nine of their possessions until backup quarterback Anthony Sweeney knelt to end the game. De La Salle's opening possession was a 10-play, 77-yard drive culminating in a 3-yard scoring run by Antoine Custer.
A short punt from deep in the Dons end of the field set up the Spartans on the Amador Valley 34 with a predictable result -- Williams scored on a 9-yard keeper. On the first play of the second quarter, Williams hit Marquis Morris on a 4-yard slant for a touchdown.

Foothill 31, Granada 21: The Falcons had 221 yards in the first half and held the Matadors to only 23, but Foothill held only a 14-7 lead at halftime.
When the third quarter ended, the Matadors had rallied to lead 21-17, and it wasn't until Isaiah Langley's 36-yard scoring run late in the fourth quarter that the Falcons finally shook the visitors loose and picked up an East Bay Athletic League win.
"This was a big win after a bad loss against Cal," Langley said of the Falcons' 24-7 loss to the Grizzlies on Oct. 11. "We made a lot of mistakes in the first half, but the key is to have a short memory, and we got a big play when we needed it."
Langley provided the play to help Foothill (7-1, 3-1 EBAL) bounce back from its first loss of the season as the junior had 82 yards receiving and 73 on the ground.
He wasn't the only Falcons player to have a big game offensively as Kyle Kearns threw for 280 yards, hitting Ryan Anderson eight times for 138 yards, and Jamirr Holland two rushing touchdowns in the first half.
Despite that, Jacob Shinnick gave Granada (4-4, 1-3) a 21-17 lead heading into the fourth quarter with a 1-yard plunge on fourth-and-goal.
Foothill took the lead back when Matt Luey scored from 3 yards early in the fourth quarter, and the Falcons defense kept the Matadors at bay the rest of the way.

Monte Vista 16, Livermore 6: Quarterback Nikita Zamora completed 23 passes in 43 attempts, throwing for two touchdowns to lead the Mustangs (2-6, 1-4 EBAL) to their first league victory at the expense of the host Cowboys (2-6, 0-4).
Zamora came out throwing, completing 16 of 29 passes for 179 yards and a score in the first half. He threw two interceptions, and the first one led to the Mustangs' first points.
Livermore defensive back Jacob Valasco intercepted a Zamora pass at the Cowboys 1, but on the next play running back Tim Harris was tackled in his end zone and Monte Vista led 2-0 with 3:17 left in the first quarter.
After the Livermore free kick, the Mustangs went 46 yards in seven plays and Zamora threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Eric Dobberpuhl with 4.8 seconds left in the quarter.
Monte Vista upped its advantage to 16-0 in the third quarter when Zamora threw a simple slant to Marco Zamora (no relation), and he ran 63 yards for a touchdown with 2:35 left in the third quarter.

Newark Memorial 10, American 6: The Cougars made two key defensive stands in the final two minutes to remain in the hunt for the Mission Valley Athletic League title with a win over the Eagles at Tak Fudenna Stadium.
American took over at its 25 with 3:52 left and drove to the Newark 16, but three straight incomplete passes by Ryan Barker gave the ball back to the Cougars with 59 seconds left. The Eagles got one final opportunity after a Newark punt, taking over on the Cougars 47 with 6.5 seconds left. Barker's deep pass fell incomplete as time expired, giving the Cougars (5-3, 3-1 MVAL) their third straight victory.
Newark jumped out to a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter when Franco Napal, who led the Cougars with 125 yards on the ground on 35 attempts, scored from 8 yards out. Bryon Jones then kicked a 37-yard field goal as the Cougars took a 10-0 halftime lead.
The Eagles (5-3, 2-2) finally got their offense in gear when Drew Lyell found the end zone on a 5-yard run. Lyell led the Eagles with 15 carries for 51 yards.

Irvington 30, Moreau Catholic 14: Senior Jack Shank rushed for two touchdowns and 120 yards and passed for one touchdown to lead the visiting Vikings (5-3, 4-1 MVAL) over the Mariners (4-4, 0-4).
A 50-yard punt return by senior Jared Lozoya put the Vikings in scoring position, and Lozoya put the Vikings ahead 8-0 with a 1-yard run to start the second quarter.
Moreau struck back when quarterback Lucas O'Rourke hit Richard Hampton in the back of the end zone to cut Irvington's lead to 8-7. The Vikings took a 16-7 lead into halftime when Shank scored untouched 80 yards on a quarterback keeper.
