DANVILLE -- Kevin Galvan was carried off the field by teammates even though, officially, he completed none of his five pass attempts for the Trojans. However, he did complete one unofficial pass -- to Nick Alfaro on a two-point conversion in overtime to win the game for visiting Castro Valley.

The two teams staged an offensive shootout to open the season with the Mustangs totaling 500 yards and the Trojans piling up 509 -- all on the ground. But after Namane Modise ran the ball in from 10 yards out in overtime, coach Nic McMaster decided to try to win the game. Even more amazing, he decided to try to win it through the air. Galvan rolled to his right and found Alfaro in the end zone for the win.

Modise rushed for 222 yards and four touchdowns on 14 carries, including runs of 80 and 62 yards. Demareyeh Lane rushed for 163 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries for Castro Valley.

Monte Vista was just as good on offense, if a bit more balanced. Matt Rood rushed for 118 yards and five touchdowns on 15 carries. Zach Cribb rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries.

Quarterback Nikita Zamora completed 15 of 29 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown.
