Braves shut down Miranda


After a 36-0 loss in its season opener against Mission High School, the Tomales High School Braves (1-1-0) reversed its fortunes on the road with a 54-0 shutout win over South Fork High School of Miranda. “They’re inexperienced and we jumped on them,” said the football team’s head coach, Leon Feliciano. “We jumped on them with the bread and butter play to the bread and butter guy.” That bread and butter was senior running back Michael Guerrero’s 65-yard gain on a toss in the first play of the game. Guerrero went onto lead the 465-yard total rush campaign with 257 yards on 16 carries. “He ran very hard and very decisively,” Feliciano said. “He’s in the zone now.” Tomales’ defense held South Fork to less than 100 yards. Tomales will face St. Helena at home on September 23 after next week’s bye.
