Two of the region’s most highly regarded quarterbacks will lead their teams into the quarter-final round of the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division-2 football playoffs on Friday evening in a confrontation of two extremely talented and explosive teams.Seventh-seed Sacramento is led by 3-year starting QB Caden Voges who surpassed the 10,000-yards passing milestone earlier this season, while second-seed Antelope counters with Temple-bound QB Montel Aaron who’s guided the Titans to an 11-0 mark this season. This headliner game is arguably the premiere match-up throughout the entire section and is the focal point of Access Sacramento‘s Hometown Sports Game of the Week. This live telecast may be seen Friday evening at 7:00 pm on Comcast channel 17, Consolidated Communications channel 17, and AT&T U-Verse channel 14.
In conjunction with Access Sacramento’s playoff partnership with the NFHS Network, the game may also be seen live on the Internet at www.nfhsnetwork.com.
Voges has led Head Coach Justin Reber‘s Dragons (8-3, 7-0) to eight straight victories and a Metropolitan League championship for Sacramento for the first time in 23 years. This season alone, Voges has passed for 2600 yards and 37 TDs for an imposing offense that averages 59 points per game.
A rampaging Sacramento defense is led by linebackers E.J. Larry, Lawrence Attaway, and Leon Haynes; a trio of run-stoppers who together have registered nearly 300 tackles, 18 sacks, 3 interceptions, and 10 fumble recoveries.
Head Coach Matt Ray‘s undefeated Titans (11-0, 7-0) will counter with Aaron, who’s passed for more than 2000 yards and 25 touchdowns. Antelope’s versatile receiving corps of Daveon Johnson, Ryan McCombs, and Logan Paulson have accounted for 31 touchdown receptions.
With such abundant explosive firepower in both arsenals, versus quick, hard-hitting defenses, it’s anyone’s guess how this flammable match-up will play out.
One thing that is predictable is the certainty of a wild and exciting football game that is ideally considered a fan’s delight. Mark this one on your calendar … in ink.
In Access Sacramento’s Hometown Sports Game of the Week, the Sacramento Dragons topped the El Camino Eagles 53-13 Friday spoiling the first game ever played on the Eagles’ stadium new artificial turf premiere.

It was an offensive show where Sacramento garnered 571 yards in total offense on 68 plays compared to El Camino’s 57 yards on 48 plays. El Camino was sacked to thrown for losses 15 times, most in the 2nd half.

Home Town Sports
A provocative non-league football match-up is highlighted this week on Access Sacramento‘s sports menu. Host El Camino will have its hands full against resurgent Sacramento High School in Friday’s Home Town Sports Game-of-the-Week.
Watch the game on Access Sacramento on Comcast and Consolidated Communications (SureWest) Cable channel 17 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99. The game is also streamed live on the web from www.AccessSacramento.org Push Watch TV-17. Will James, Jim Dimino and Rick Stewart call the action.
The 11th-ranked Dragons enter the 2014 campaign brimming with residual confidence following their finest (11-3) season. Head Coach Paul Doherty will again unleash an explosive offense that fueled Sac’s drive to the SJS D-3 title game. The Dragons remain as one of the area’s top attractions, and an imposing force that may wrestle the Metro League crown away from Burbank. Only top-ranked Folsom boasts a more prolific aerial arsenal.
Flashy QB Caden Voges, who passed for school records of 4351 yards and 47 touchdowns as a sophomore, returns as the trigger man of the Dragons’ spread offense. Voges will distribute the firepower among an experienced battalion of exciting playmakers featuring 2-way starters Lonny Powell and Kyron Basped.
El Camino, however, has other ideas about the baptism of their new field. The 19-ranked Eagles enter the season significantly improved, giving Head Coach Adam Reinking good reason to believe the Eagles will contend for the CVC title and return to the SJS playoffs after falling short last season.
RB’s Kijana Zigler and Maleek Stewart spark El Camino’s high scoring offense that keyed the Eagles’ 35-32 season-opening road victory over Rosemont in Week-Zero. LB’s Jim Carter and Ty Harkleload anchor the defensive unit.
This game also provides the Dragons and Eagles with a rare opportunity to open the new season being showcased on an elegant stage. El Camino’s Abbott Field is the most recent of the area’s rejuvenated football stadiums, having undergone its first major face lift since opening in 1950. Upgrades to the venue include a new artificial turf field, a new all-weather track, and various improvements to the stadium facilities.
Ceremonies for the official dedication of the new field and related festivities will precede the opening kickoff. You won’t want to miss this one. It should be quite a party… and quite a battle.
Replays of this game are scheduled for Sat. Sept. 6 at 11 a.m., Sunday Sept. 7 at 3 a.m., Tuesday Sept 9 at 7 p.m., Wednesday Sept. 10 at 11 a.m. and Thursday Sept. 11 at 3 a.m.

An raucous crowd swarmed onto the McClatchy High School campus Thursday evening and packed its smallish gym to maximum capacity for the highly anticipated Metro League girls basketball showdown between the host No. 2 Lions and the invading, top-ranked Sacramento Dragons.
What was expected to be a tight ball game was never close after the opening moments and rapidly developed into a landslide victory of epic proportion as McClatchy (17-1, 7-0) pounded Sacramento 54-29, handing the Dragons their first league loss in 97 games spanning five years. The loss also marked the Dragons’ first defeat versus local competition in three seasons.
The game will be broadcast by Access Sacramento Game of the Week tonight (Fri. Jan 24) at 7 p.m. Tune to Comcast/SureWest Cable Channel 17 or AT&T U-Verse Channel 99. Will James and Rick Stewart Call the action.
Destiny Lee paced the Lions with 17 points and 10 rebounds. The 6-4 junior, who has already received a scholarship offer from USF, neutralized the Dragons 6-4 Ayanna Edwards who, although registering 9 blocks, finished with just 6 points and 6 rebounds. McClatchy freshman guard Jordan Cruz added 16 points, while junior guard Lauren Nubla chipped in with 11 points.
McClatchy Head Coach, Jessica Kunisaki said, “we’ve worked on taking care of the ball and knowing how to break different traps. Kunisaki said, “our mindset is believing in ourselves”, adding that she was not worried about her younger players stepping up in this high-profile rivalry game. They looked at it as just another game, not wanting to focus on anything but playing well.” That was clearly an understatement.
Prior to the opening tip-off, Sacramento Head Coach, Michelle Massari, said, “we prepared by watching film, scouting the Lions, and practicing hard to be ready for this showdown. The mindset of our team is to be relentless, play smart, take advantage of McClatchy’s weaknesses, and not get too hyped up about the game.” It was equally clear that McClatchy showed not weaknesses.
The Lions played stellar defense, limiting the Dragons to just nine points in the opening quarter. On offense they passed well and moved the ball quickly up the floor with proficiency, easily breaking Sacramento’s press while taking a 25-15 advantage into the locker room at the intermission.
Beginning the second half Kunisaki urged her team to continue playing aggressive defense. “In the past we have been content and they’ve come right back at us. We just have to play great defense.” The Lions did just that, leading 41-23 after three quarters and limiting the Dragons to single-digit scoring in every quarter and their lowest total output in decades. Sacramento (10-7, 6-1) was topped by Najah Queenland’s 10 points.
The rematch between these two long-time arch rivals, which should again draw a capacity crowd, is slated for February 18th in the regular-season finale at Sacramento.
