East Central Hornets sting Stanislaus 41-7 The Saint Stanislaus Rock-a-chaws entered their game with East Central in Wade-Hurley Friday with great expectations of solid football. And, they did achieve that for about a quarter and a half. Then, Mother Nature threw a wrench in the game plan and the deluge came down. That and a profuse dropping of yellow laundry on the field that became almost laughable. Oct 13, 2017, 23:22

The St. Stanislaus Rock-a-Chaws and the Bay High Tigers squared off Friday night 'between the walls' for the 48th time in the series dating back to 1945.

Bay High head coach Ben Foreman commented, "Hats off to SSC. They have a solid defense. They changed up their coverages and mixed up their fronts to keep us off balance. And, they simply fly to the football. We could not get anything going with any consistency. I thought John Russo and Kyre Hodges-Campello played solid and competed. We have to get back to doing what we do. We host Vancleave next week so it is back to the drawing board and doing what we do." Oct 7, 2017, 00:36
