– The NFC division leading Pacifica Islanders traveled to
Oakland this week to face the Oakland Vipers. After facing
an injury to their quarterback, Orlando Evans last week
Jason Piccolotti would start the game. He would turn out to
have a nice outing, passing 10 for 14 with 128 yards,
connecting with both Dre Kelley and Obi Ngumezi for
touchdowns. The Islanders were also missing star running
back, Jarmar Julien, but Islander running back Calvin
Edwards did a nice job of rushing for 102 yards and a
touchdown on 11 carries. Donyell Crain would also get a
rushing touchdown of his own. The offensive line did a nice
job creating holes for the Islander backs.
The Islanders defense would also once again play stingy
football. They would not allow the Oakland Vipers to get on
the board, giving the Islanders their second shut out in as
many weeks. At the end of it all, the Islanders would walk
away with a 34-0 victory.
The Islanders' most anticipated game of the season, against
the AFC division leading River City Gators of Sacramento,
and arguably the game of the year for the NCFL will take
place this Saturday at 5:30pm at Terra Nova High School.
Both teams are 4-0 and the only undefeated teams in the NCFL.
All profits generated from this game will be donated
directly to the Terra Nova sports programs. With the state
budget cuts hitting athletic programs hard, this is a great
way of helping out Terra Nova athletics and you can't get
better entertainment for $10 a person! Bring your friends
and family, grab some dinner at our snack bar and come out
and support your National Champion Pacifica Islanders and at
the same time support your local high school athletics
program. This game will be the toughest regular season game
of the year, so the Islanders need their fans and the
community to come and support them.
