In a defensive game filled with turnovers, the Alameda High football team was able to take advantage of enough opportunities to post a 22-6 West Alameda County Conference victory over San Lorenzo at Arroyo High on Friday.

Jack Rausser intercepted Rebels quarterback Kevin Mosi's first pass, setting up Elijah Hernandez's 34-yard scamper for a 7-0 Hornets' lead.

In the fourth quarter with Alameda (3-6, 1-3 WACC-Shoreline) clinging to a 7-6 lead, Darnell Rose recovered a San Lorenzo fumble at the Rebels' 29-yard line to help set up Weston Tolbert's 3-yard touchdown run. The key play on the drive was a fourth down conversion of 21 yards between Jesse Lewis and Keelan Doss. Hernandez's pass to Chris Bussey for the 2-point conversion gave Alameda a 15-6 lead and more than enough margin for the win.

Lewis and Doss would connect again on an 11-yard pass for the game's final score.

Lewis passed for 107 yards and Bussey led the Hornets with seven catches for 70 yards.

"I'm really proud of our defense," Hornets' coach Kemp Moyer said. "We were able to get some turnovers, sack the quarterback a

few times and punch it in when we had the short field."

The only score for the Rebels (2-7, 1-3) came on Aaron Jones' 93-yard kickoff return to trim Alameda's lead to 7-6. Jones also led San Lorenzo with six receptions for 59 yards, while Mosi threw for 100 yards.
