After struggling through one the hardest non-league schedules this year, James Logan (1-3) is happy that league play has started because they have dominated it in the past years. They went up against Mission Valley Athletic L eague rival Newark (3-2), Friday night and capitalized on their chance to take a step toward another MVAL crown.
Newark struck first with a field goal, only to be matched by Logan's Sergio Ramirez, who tied it up at 3 at the half with a field goal of his own. Going into the second half, the game was pretty even until Kyle Lopez broke it open, as he took the kickoff 80-yards to put Logan on top 10-3.
Logan would get the ball back and drive down the field for another score, when Lopez scored again on a three yard run. That's all Logan would need, as they would cruise to their first win of the season 17-3.
Lopez must love playing Newark. Last year, it was a Lopez interception that sealed a victory for Logan against Newark; and now it's his two-touchdown performance. Logan also got a good game from quarterback Jonathon Willis, who had 100-yards rushing and 70-yards passing.
Logan looks to keep this win as motivation, as they face a non-league Berkeley next week.
