- San Ramon Valley rolls past Foothill-Pleasanton
By Special to The Chronicle - Saturday Sep 9, 2017
As good as host San Ramon Valley-Danville was on offense Friday night, it was even better on defense. The 16th-ranked Wolves pitched a shutout in a 45-0 shellacking of No. 25 Foothill-Pleasanton and rendered the absence of Foothill’s quarterback, Fresno State-bound Ben Wooldridge, virtually meaningless. San Ramon Valley (2-0) held Foothill (0-2) to 112 total yards and allowed the Falcons into their territory only twice in the East Bay Athletic League opener for both teams. Wooldridge, who injured his knee in Foothill's 35-26 season-opening loss to San Leandro, is expected to miss three to six weeks. The Wolves harassed his replacement, A.J. Duval, into 9-for-21 passing for 65 yards.
- De La Salle routs San Ramon Valley-Danville 49-14

Although an undefeated San Ramon Valley football team entered Friday night’s game at De La Salle with high hopes, the Wolves were the equivalent of a batter digging in against Madison Bumgarner and starting with an 0-2 count. The host Spartans, who haven’t lost to a Northern California opponent in more than a quarter century, had an extra week to prepare, thanks to a bye in the schedule. And they had the memory of nearly losing a one-point game to San Ramon Valley last season. When Taveis Marshall scored on the first of his two pick-sixes early in the second quarter, the Spartans grabbed a two-score lead and it was strike three for the Wolves.
- Pittsburg vs. San Ramon Valley might be Bay Area’s might be best game of season

The two coaches — Pittsburg’s Vic Galli and San Ramon Valley-Danville’s Aaron Becker — summed up the other’s team the same way after watching film. “They have no weaknesses,” Becker said. Said Galli: “They do everything well.” Both teams have displayed explosive, diverse offenses — San Ramon Valley (9-1) averages 405 yards per game (204 through the air) and Pittsburg 377 (212 on the ground) — big, effective lines, physical, airtight defenses and sound special teams. With a victory, each team can make school history: a spot in the state tournament for the first time. That makes Saturday’s North Coast Section Open Division semifinal game quite special.
