PRE­VIEW

The Oakdale Leader - - SPORTS -

Week Three of the reg­u­lar sea­son will see Oak­dale (4-1, 2-0) host Man­teca (41, 1-1) Fri­day night, Oct. 6 at The Cor­ral. Both teams are com­ing off big wins, with Oak­dale knock­ing off We­ston Ranch 59-18 and Man­teca tak­ing care of Lathrop 50-0.

This will be the first ma­jor chal­lenge for Oak­dale in Val­ley Oak League play this year, and the var­sity Mus­tangs will need their de­fense to step up like they did last week against We­ston Ranch. Oak­dale’s de­fense forced sev­eral turnovers and pres­sured the Cougars at the line of scrim­mage.

Last sea­son Man­teca de­feated Oak­dale 30-22 in Man­teca, but Oak­dale went on to win seven straight games af­ter that loss, in­clud­ing the 2016 CIF State Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship Bowl game. Man­teca’s lone loss this sea­son came to Cen­tral Catholic in the Val­ley Oak League opener 31-14 at home.

Oak­dale has outscored op­po­nents 101-24 in the first two weeks of the reg­u­lar sea­son and Man­teca has outscored their op­po­si­tion 64-31.

Kickoff for this Val­ley Oak League show­down is sched­uled for 7 p.m.
