Noah’s Spring Water Team of the Week: Oakdale’s Wing-T gearing up for another late-season run

Filed in Uncategorized by on October 21, 2016

Black Hat Football has a Tip of the Hat to Varni Brothers Corp. and Noah’s Spring Water, key partners in our comprehensive coverage of high school football in The 209.

Each week, Black Hat visits a high school to deliver a bounty of Noah’s refreshing spring water to our Noah’s Spring Water Team of the Week. We oakdale-waterknow high school teams receiving the five hefty cases of Noah’s Spring Water — packed in 24-ounce, resealable cans — appreciate the timely delivery, as well.

Oakdale High appears to be making another of those late-season runs, its Wing-T gaining momentum as the Mustangs roll through their Valley Oak League schedule. Oakdale is unbeaten since a season-opening loss to Sonora, which is 8-0.

The Mustangs overwhelmed East Union 42-6, rushing for 455 yards and 6 TDs for their sixth win in a row. Cameron Cherry and Will Semone combined for 345 yards and two TDs, with 18 carries apiece.

Oakdale’s clock-consuming run game moves behind an offensive line that features Nico Serale, Conner Reed, Jorge Barajas, Jacob Tiejien and Brandon Vierra. The Mustangs have scored 40, 40 and 42 points the last three weeks, giving up just 19 points total thanks to a defensive front of Jacob Peterson,oakdale1 Levi Ichord, Matt Kjeldgaard, Michael Everette and Cullen Bearden.

Oakdale hosts Weston Ranch Friday night in a Hometown Edition of the Honor Bowl, the showcase event that usually features a half-dozen games the opening week of the season.

Friday Night, Oakdale also is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its 1996 Sac-Joaquin Section championship team, a squad that featured quarterback Seth Burford and center Zach Quaccia. Both players were selected in the 2002 draft, by the San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
