Jesuit recovers with win against Yuba City High School

Jesuit High School (11) bounces back after 21-7 loss to Granite Bay High School by beating unranked Yuba City High School 40-0.

“It was Jesuit’s first game in the new Hanson McClain Advisors’ Stadium, which set the stage for an exciting atmosphere,” starting quarterback Calvin Brownholtz said ’17.

“What helped was the positive activity from the sidelines and the Galley Crew,” Calvin said. “We wanted to impress in the new stadium.”

Calvin lead the way in the staggering victory with five touchdowns in his first regular season start; He ran for three scores, and passed for two. He opened the game with a 50 yard touchdown pass to Garrett Kay ’17.

As a result of Calvin’s performance, he is in contention for the Sacramento Bee ‘Player of the Week’.

In addition to the 40 points produced by the offense, the Marauder defense earned their first shutout of the season.

Wide receiver and cornerback Jayme Thomas ’17 forced the only YCHS turnover of the game, with an interception with two minutes left in the second quarter.

Defensive leader and middle linebacker Myles Goudreau ’17 made eight tackles against YCHS. He is the only junior, who was on varsity as a sophomore last year, competing as a second string linebacker.

“The defense has had to strong performances back-to-back weeks, and we want to carry our momentum into Holy Bowl,” Myles said.

Next week Jesuit (11) will take on Christian Brothers High School (16) in the 44th annual ‘Holy Bowl’ at Sacramento City College’s Hughes Stadium, at 7:00 PM on Saturday.
