APPENDIX


I. A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE EARLY YEARS OF
ST. HELENA HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL


The September 19, 1924 edition of the St. Helena Star carried the following article beneath the front page headline reading: RAH FOOTBALL! ST. HELENA HI!

“Some of the fellows about school suggested having a football team. Mr. Waterman, Athletics Coach, had given his approval, and a football was obtained and practice started. The field was in terrible condition. There seemed no chance to buy suits but the fellows kept pulling at the idea with bulldog grip. After a large amount of discussion things began to look brighter. A Student Body meeting was held and speeches were made in favor of football. After the meeting two petitions were circulated among the students and presented to the Board of Trustees last Friday night… The Board voted to allow the school enough money to buy suits for two teams. The Student Body appreciates this far more than words can express. The students promised to put the gridiron in shape and already the Student Body can be seen working on the field like a gang of ranch hands.”

With School Board approval, the High School then petitioned officials of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) to be allowed to compete in the North Bay Counties League (NBCL) with Analy of Sebastopol, Napa, Petaluma, San Rafael, Santa Rosa, Tamalpais, and Vallejo. All of these schools were much larger in enrollment than St. Helena, and most of them had many years of experience in football competition, but there really was no other option at the time as there were literally no other small schools of St. Helena’s size who played 11-man football. At a special CIF meeting called in Santa Rosa to discuss the matter of St. Helena’s petition to join, there was heavy opposition to allowing the much smaller High School into the League, but finally, after considerable discussion and heated debate, approval was given and the St. Helena Thunderbirds [Thunderbirds? See below] were about to begin playing football.
The first team, coached by Ivan Waterman in that Fall of 1924, was made up of the following members: LE Theo Corbella; LT Carl Jursch; LG Frank Duvall; C Louis Mossi; RG Bob Lizzio; RT Joe Knapp; RE Joe Vasconi; QB Tom Walters; LH Max Harrington; RH Bill Becky; FB Joe Lovering; and Substitutes: Al Beyer, Albert Jackse, Joe Tepping, Bill Smyth, Larry Paulson, Leo Harrison, Ted Borla, and Frank Camail
That initial season was rough to say the least. The young St. Helena kids, none of whom had ever played football before, lost at Ukiah 20-0 in a practice game to open the season, and then lost five league games -- the first four to San Rafael, 61-0; Vallejo, 88-0; Analy, 20-6; and Napa, 73-0. In the “School and Campus” section of the Star the week following the Napa debacle, a student reporter wrote the following, “From the first toot of the whistle Napa slashed through our team like a warm knife through so much putty… [The game was a] regular Class A No. 1 slaughter without even a grease spot left where St. Helena ought to have been and the score running up like a frightened thermometer out for an altitude record. Man after man, knocked out, dragged out; nothing to do but to crawl back to St. Helena and forget it.” And then the fifth league defeat, and by far the worst of them all, came at the hands of Santa Rosa, 141- 0. Yes, 141! There was no report of that game in the Star, except for this curt remark in the “School and Campus” section, “I can’t tell you the score of the game last week, and I wouldn’t even if I could.” A very short article about that rout in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, didn’t have a lot to say about the game (almost as if it were embarrassed to report it) except to acknowledge the fact that the “St. Helena team was heavily outweighed and substantially overmatched,” and that, “60 yard runs for touchdowns were not uncommon.” The Thunderbirds did end the ’24 season with a win, however, as Petaluma was forced to forfeit the final game of the year to St. Helena because they were unable to field a full squad due to injuries sustained in the previous weeks.
Even though week after week crushed on the scoreboard, and battered and bruised physically, the young St. Helenans never quit and received high praise all season long from opposing coaches, players, and fans for their determination, sportsmanship, courage, and never-say-die spirit. In the November 14, 1924 issue of the Napa Daily Journal, Napa High’s Head Coach, Harold Johnson, was quoted as saying, “I can’t say enough about the grit and pluck of those St. Helena boys, they just wouldn’t give up no matter how bad it got And believe me, it got pretty bad.”

A bit needs to be mentioned at this point about the school colors and nickname. From all of the information that this author researched, it’s evident that the original school colors were green and gold. The data supporting this conclusion is overwhelming, and just a couple of examples will suffice. In the 1910-1911 edition of the school yearbook, then called The Far Darter, the official school seal & motto (“Wisdom is knowing what to do next. Virtue is doing it.”) is on the cover in green and gold. Page 26 of the December 1911 Far Darter has this quote in the section on Athletics: “When it [basketball] is mentioned the student flies to his pennant with a spirit of patriotism and with a spirit of confidence in the Green and Gold Basketball Team.” The November 2, 1928 issue of the Napa Daily Journal, in an article about the upcoming St. Helena/Napa football game, says: “The Indians are favored to win over the Green and Gold-clad St. Helena team.” Likewise, in the September 14, 1933 issue of the Daily Journal , another article states: “Indian gridders ready for 1st game of the year against Green and Gold Team [St. Helena].
As to the timing of the change to Red and White as the school’s colors, it appears (at least for the football team) to have been sometime before the 1935 season. In a pre-season article in the St. Helena Star in September of that year it’s stated that, “…the High School football team will be sporting their new black and red pants, red jerseys, and red stockings.” There is no explanation in that article, nor in any other that the author could find, as to why the change in colors was made. One source spoke with, however, explained that the switch in colors came about when one of the Saints’ coaches at the time instigated the change because he was a “Chico State man and wanted the St. Helena teams to be Red and White like his Alma Mater.” Whether this is accurate or not isn’t known. The research into this mystery will continue.
Over and over again, throughout the 1920s and 1930s the name Thunderbirds is used for the football (and basketball) teams. All of the articles that speak of the football teams during those early years use the name Thunderbirds as the mascot. Again, only a few examples are necessary. The October 6, 1925 issue of the St. Helena Star announced the first league game against Vallejo with the following, “Thunderbirds Ready to Open Season.” The Star of October 4, 1929 contained an article about the season-opening game with Napa by reminding fans that, “Thunderbirds and Indians to Meet Tomorrow on Elementary School Grounds.” The September 15, 1934 St. Helena Star, in an article about the upcoming season, had this headline: THUNDERBIRDS READY TO FLY. The article stated: “The St. Helena Thunderbirds have been well drilled on fundamentals and are ready to stretch their wings Saturday.” In the September 27, 1935 issue of the Star, this was written: “The Thunderbird once again spreads his wings for a flight into the battlegrounds. May he return victorious and unruffled.”
However, the name Saints is also used a few times in the 1920s. Star articles about the team or about games use the term Saints on several occasions. An article about the 1926 game with Analy says “The Saints” were victorious. One article that just adds to the confusion came in the October 4, 1935 edition of the Star. The article, describing a win over Middletown in an 8-man football game, is titled, THUNDERBIRDS VICTORIOUS IN BATTLE. Then, later in that same article, it says, “The Saints beat the Middletown Indians…” During the 1930s the term Saints is used more and more. An article about the upcoming football game between Napa and St. Helena in the Napa Daily Journal on October 22, 1931 was headlined, “INDIANS TO MEET SAINTS TODAY.” In a September 15, 1934 Journal article another headline reads, “NAPA HIGH TO MEET SAINTS.” As the 1930s progressed into the 1940s, the name Thunderbirds is used less and less, and the name Saints slowly takes over. The last mention of the name Thunderbirds that I saw was during the 1940 season.

So, the Thunderbirds/Saints, wearing Green and Gold, and then Red and White, began to play football. The first touchdown ever scored by a St. Helenan came on a 4-yard run by Theo “Sarge” Corbella in a game with Analy in 1924. The first win (aside from the Petaluma forfeit of 1924) came in the season opener of 1925, a 12-7 defeat of the Vallejo “Ramblers,” the term used (along with “Seconds”) in those times for a team’s reserves. St. Helena’s first win against another true varsity team came in the initial game of the 1926 season with a 32-0 defeat of Martinez. The first league win came that same year in a 14-13 thriller over Analy.
It didn’t take long for the St. Helena athletes to catch on as to how to play football, and year-by-year steady improvement was evident. After the 0-6 season of 1924 (if you don’t count the forfeit win), the Thunderbirds went 2-7 in 1925, and 4-5 in 1926. Then, after only three years of competition, the 1927 team became the first to have a winning season by going 6-3-1, tying for third place in the North Bay Counties League, defeating Analy, Tamalpais, Petaluma, and powerful Santa Rosa (for the one and only time in school history), and tying San Rafael. The 1928 team compiled a very respectable 5-4-0 record, followed by a 6-3-0 mark by the 1929 squad. In one of the biggest wins in school history the 1929 team upset Napa 20-12, the only time in eleven games that a St. Helena football team was able to defeat the much larger Napa school. Then, in 1934, Vallejo was defeated 6-0. The Thunderbirds/Saints had their first perfect season in 1944 when the team, under the able tutelage of Head Coach Ralph Ingolls, went 7-0-0, allowing only two touchdowns during the entire campaign.
As mentioned above, St. Helena initially participated in the North Bay Counties League (NBCL) from 1924-1931, and the author could find no answer as to why they didn’t continue to do so after that year. The Thunderbirds/Saints then became members of the old Solano County League South (SCLS) for two years, 1932-33, along with Vacaville, Rio Vista, and Armijo of Fairfield. That League disbanded after the 1932 season and St. Helena had no League affiliation in football from 1933 to 1944, when the North Bay League II was created to include Healdsburg, Sonoma, Tomales, and St. Helena, with Calistoga joining in 1945.

The first home games were played on a field at the High School which was located where the “new” gym built in the 70s is now standing. The gridiron ran north to south behind the original gym and locker rooms and what was then the band building. It wasn’t long, though, before the team began to play some of its games at the Elementary (or Grammar) School, and eventually that field, later to be named Carpy Field in about 1947 or so, became the official home field for all football games until the Patterson Field complex was constructed in 1972. The first game ever played on the Elementary School grounds was against Martinez (mentioned above) on September 25, 1926. The first night game at the Grammar School was played on October 13, 1938 against St. Vincents of Vallejo which St. Vincents won 13-6. (The Star reported that it cost $300 to install the lights.)

Thus, St. Helena has been playing football for over 85 years and it is a rich history to say the least. I hope this record book helps to bring some of the remarkable achievements of both teams and individuals to light.


II. ST. HELENA NAIL-BITERS: (The Thunderbirds’/Saints’ Most
Nerve-Wracking Wins)



DATE OPPONENT LOCATION SCORE
Oct. 28, 1926 Analy St. Helena High School Field 14-13

In its first three years of competition in the rugged North Bay Counties League, the Green and Gold Thunderbirds of St. Helena [see History section above for explanation] hadn’t won a single outing in 16 tries, with the exception of a forfeit win over Petaluma at the end of the 1924 season. Most of the games had been absolute routs as the St. Helena teams were week after week competing against much larger schools with a team of players that prior to the 1924 season had had absolutely no football experience whatsoever. Two games that had been close, however, were those with Analy High School of Sebastopol, 20-6 in 1924, and 14-0 in 1925. The kids from St. Helena were hungry for a win and the Analy game seemed like a good place to start.
The Thunderbirds took the field fired up and started the game with a determined 10-play, 66-yard drive for a score , Theo “Sarge” Corbella taking the ball in from the six for the TD. Milton “Moon” Young kicked the extra point and St. Helena was ahead 7-0. The game then became a defensive battle for awhile until, with about 3 minutes to play in the second period, Analy scored on a long pass play to tie the game at 7-7 as the first half ended.
The Green and Gold came out of the locker room for the third quarter just as excited as they had been in the first, and, after holding Analy to a three-and-out, drove 58 yards in 9 plays with Corbella scoring again, this time from 2 yards out. Once again, Young’s kick was good and the T’Birds were up 14-7. Again, the defenses were dominant until, mid-way through the final period, Analy marched 60 yards in 12 plays to score. Their PAT kick was no good, however, and St. Helena still led, 14-13. All the Thunderbirds had to do now was put together a couple of first downs and let the clock run out. Analy had other ideas, though, and forced the Green and Gold to punt after three plays had netted only 5 yards, the Tigers taking over on their own 40 with just under 2 minutes left in the game. Deftly mixing runs and passes, the Analy offense moved closer and closer to the St. Helena goal, finally reaching the 15 with :40 seconds left. From that spot, a first down pass was incomplete, a second down run gained 4 yards to the 11, then another pass fell incomplete. On fourth down, with only :08 seconds remaining, the Tigers’ QB shot a pass into the end zone, but the T’Birds’ Max Harrington darted in front of the Analy receiver and batted it down to dramatically save the game. A wild celebration immediately broke out amongst the jubilant St. Helena players, and they were quickly joined by many students and fans who streaked onto the field to enjoy the win with them.

Oct. 7, 1927 Petaluma St. Helena H.S. Field 20-18

Through the 1924-1926 seasons, St. Helena had won only 2 of 19 league games, the forfeit victory over Petaluma in 1924, and the 14-13 thriller over Analy in 1926 described above. In its two previous games against Petaluma High, St. Helena had lost by only 12-7 and 20-6 scores in close, competitive battles. The Thunderbirds were looking, hopefully, to beating the Trojans, this time on the field.
The Thunderbirds opened the game by immediately driving 10 plays to the Petaluma 11. There they suffered a 5-yard penalty and were faced with a 1st and 15. On the following play, T’Birds’ halfback Milton Young was hit hard and fumbled, but an alert teammate, Bob Woodworth, deftly scooped the ball up off the turf and ran in for a touchdown. Young’s extra point try was no good so the score was 6-0. Early in the second period, Young made up for his earlier mistake by blocking a Petaluma punt and returning it 6 yards for a score. Young kicked the extra point and the Thunderbirds were on top 13-0. Petaluma then took the following kick-off and drove to the SH 40, but there the speedy Johnny Pfister of the Green and Gold intercepted a Trojan pass and returned it all the way to the Petaluma 8. On the next play Young scored again, and when he added another PAT kick, the score stood at 20-0 St. Helena. At the end of the first half, Petaluma drove deep into Green and Gold territory only to have Pfister again come up with an interception, this time returning it 40 yards as time expired in the half.
Holding a 20-point lead, the Thunderbirds came out of the locker room bristling with confidence. Their bubble was suddenly burst however when the Trojans returned the second half kick-off 70 yards for a TD. The PAT kick was no good and the score was 20-6. The stunned St. Helena crew could do absolutely nothing with the ball on their next possession and punted it away. Petaluma went to the air and completed 5 straight passes and looked to score again, but St. Helena’s David Zill intercepted the ball to stop the drive at the SH 20. As the 4th quarter opened the Trojans continued to have success through the air and this time they were able to score to bring the count to 20-12. The Thunderbirds were again helpless on offense and when the Trojans got the ball back they continued their aerial attack, driving 60 yards in just 5 plays to score and close the gap to 20-18. The Green and Gold received the kick-off and again were stymied and were forced to punt the ball back to Petaluma. With only one minute remaining in the game, though, the Trojans didn’t have enough time to get into the end zone and St. Helena, exhilarated with the victory, also felt very fortunate to have escaped with the win.


DATE OPPONENT LOCATION SCORE
Oct. 5, 1929 Napa Napa 20-12

For five years the St. Helena High School football teams had suffered humiliating defeats at the hands of the much larger Napa Indians, and the frustration really reached a peak when an article in the Napa Daily Journal in late September suggested that St. Helena might consider giving up football or, if not that drastic a move, try to play schools more their size so they’d at least “have a chance to win.” The article also implied that Napa boys were indeed getting tired of beating up on the “poor, out-manned kids from St. Helena.” Indeed, in the first three years of playing against each other, Napa had pummeled St. Helena by an average score of 69-2, but the last two contests, were decided by scores of 19-0 in 1927, and then only 7-0 in 1928., The young Thunderbirds were incensed by the article and, this being the 1929 season opener, were out to make an emphatic point.
The first quarter began, however, with the usual, a long, steady, pounding Napa drive for a touchdown. The extra point attempt failed but the Indians were quickly on top 6-0. The rest of the quarter went scoreless, as did the first 5 minutes of the second period. Then the Thunderbirds began to move down the field. With running backs Alan Nichelini, Les Woodworth, and Bob Steves carving up the Indians’ defense, the T’Birds rolled 75 yards in 12 plays to score on a 20-yard dash by Nichelini. The PAT was no good, but the score was tied 6-6. The rest of the half went scoreless and the Green and Gold went to the locker room full of excitement and confidence.
Napa, however, opened the 3rd period with a 58-yard run for a TD on its first possession. The PAT kick was no good, but now the Indians led 12-6 lead. Then St. Helena responded with a drive of their own with Nichelini scoring from 34 yards out. Nichelini’s extra point kick was good and the Thunderbirds now were on top 13-12, the first time St. Helena had ever led a Napa team. The game then settled into a defensive battle as neither team could sustain any offensive consistency. Late in the 4th quarter, however, Napa drove 45 yards to the St. Helena 28, and, with about two minutes left in the game, seemed to be on its way to a winning score. The T’Birds’ defense stiffened here, though, and dumped Napa ball carriers for a couple of losses. On third down and 15 from the 33, the Indians’ QB dropped back and fired a pass to his right. Nichelini, however, reading the play perfectly, cut in front of the Indian receiver, snagged the ball out of the air, and raced 72 yards down the sideline for a shocking, game-clinching touchdown. Nichelini’s kick was no good, but St. Helena was ahead 20-12 with only 1:30 remaining. After the kick-off the Napa offense was stifled by the wild-eyed Thunderbirds, and the “poor out-manned kids from St. Helena” had pulled off a stunning, history-making, upset win.

Oct. 13, 1934 Vallejo St. Helena Elem. School Field 6- 0

The St. Helena Thunderbirds, who were often now in newspaper articles also being referred to as the “Saints,” had never beaten a Vallejo varsity team, giving up an average of 44 points per game in the six contests between the two schools while scoring only one TD. The Thunderbird players were determined to finally beat Vallejo if it was the last thing they did.
The game began with the Thunderbirds/Saints taking the kick-off and marching right down the field on a series of runs, only to reach the Vallejo 10 and fumble the ball away. After forcing the Apaches to punt the Green and Gold went right back at ‘em to get to the Vallejo 16 only to fumble again. The game remained scoreless throughout the first half with the Saints continually mounting threats only to eventually hurt themselves with turnovers or penalties.
The first 15 minutes of the second half also remained scoreless, but then in the middle of the fourth quarter things started to click for the St. Helena squad. With 6 minutes to go in the game the Thunderbirds took over on the Vallejo 40 after a bad Apache punt. T’ Birds’ Quarterback Bill Wolf completed two passes to halfback Wally Scofield to move the ball to the Vallejo 20. Scofield then dove off tackle for five more yards to the Apache 15. Two more downs, though, gained nothing, and then on 4th and 5, Wolf’s field goal attempt was just wide of the mark leaving the game scoreless. Vallejo, unable to move, punted back to SH and one more time, after Scofield returned the kick 20 yards, the St. Helena team was on the Apache 40. Wolf ran left for five yards, and then tossed a pass to Bill Bergendorf for 5 more and a 1st down on the 30. Wolf then passed to Harry Seghetti at the 18. Only a minute was left now. Scofield carried for 5, and then Wolf skirted his right end, dodged two would-be Apache tacklers, and scampered the remaining 13 yards for a touchdown just as the gun sounded ending the game. Needless to say, absolute bedlam broke out on the Thunderbirds’ side of the field. St. Helena had defeated the mighty Vallejo Apaches!!

Nov. 11, 1935 Calif. School for the Deaf St. Helena Elem. School Field 13-7

The Thunderbirds/Saints of 1935 were having a great season. Entering this Armistice Day game against California School for the Deaf (CSD), St. Helena was 5-0-2, the two ties occurring in back-to-back 0-0 games with Ukiah and Healdsburg early in the season. The T’Bird/Saints, sporting their new-this-season red jerseys, red stockings, and black and red pants [see History section for explanation], had allowed only one TD in all seven of the games. The St. Helena eleven wanted to keep that unbeaten record intact, but, it wasn’t going to be easy against a very rugged CSD team..
Most of the large holiday crowd was probably asleep by the time the real action finally got started as for the first three-and-a-half periods there was very little offensive action and no score. The Saints, though, were at last able to put points on the board when with 4 minutes left in the game, St. Helena’s Attilio “Tosh” Ghiringhelli recovered an Eagle fumble at their 20. Two plays later, fullback Bill “Moose” Harrington scored from 10 yards out and the Thunderbirds were on top 6-0. Ghiringhelli’s PAT was no good, but the six point lead looked more than safe the way the defense was playing. However, it was a very short-lived lead as CSD shocked the crowd by returned the ensuing kick-off 72 yards for a touchdown. A successful kick put the Eagles on top 7-6 with only two minutes remaining in the game and the St. Helena crowd was groaning in despair. But sometimes, great moments are just meant to be. The Saints’ Virgil Galleron returned the CSD kick-off 30 yards to Eagles’ 42. Then Harrington plowed off-tackle twice for a total of 12 yards and a 1st down on CSD’s 28. Finally, the T’Birds ran a play they’d practiced but never used in a game. With just :25 seconds left, halfback Andy Del Bondio swept around end on a double-reverse and streaked into the end zone for the dramatic game-winning score. What a finish!

Nov. 5, 1938 Healdsburg Healdsburg 9- 7

The Saints and the Healdsburg Greyhounds were entering their 11th meeting in a series that began in 1925. Each school had won 5 games, and one contest had ended in a tie. This 1938 game would become one of the most thrilling and dramatic as any in the long and storied history of St. Helena football.
The first half was a defensive slugfest with neither team able to get any offense going whatsoever. As a matter of fact, neither team had a first down to its credit, there had already been 10 punts, and the score stood at 0-0 at the half. The third period opened with the crowd expecting more of the same, but a Healdsburg running back broke loose for a 65-yard TD run early in the quarter. With a successful kick the Greyhounds led 7-0, and, with the way their defense had been playing, it looked like that would probably be enough to win it. Finally, though, mid-way through the fourth quarter, the Saints were able to move the ball to the ‘Hounds 20 and from there halfback Aldo Micheli exploded around his left end, knifed through the defense, and sped his way into the end zone for a score. Bob Thorsen’s PAT boot then tied the game at 7. The ‘Hounds and the Saints then exchanged punts, and with time running down, Healdsburg found itself backed deep in their own territory at their four yard line, and had to punt again. With only :40 seconds left in the game, all they had to do was get off a decent kick and then hold on for the tie. Not to be, said the Saints’ Harold Rutherford, and he crashed through the Healdsburg line and blocked the punt. The ball bounced off him and out of the end zone for a safety and an amazing last-second 9-7 Saint victory. One of the most exciting, and unusual, wins in St. Helena history.

Oct. 18, 1940 Tomales St. Helena Elem. School Field 12- 7

This was the first meeting ever between these two small schools in 11-man football. St. Helena and Tomales had met a couple of times in earlier years, but because of Tomales’ smaller school-size the games were played under 8-man rules.
The Saints opened the game with a smash-mouth attack that set the Braves on their heels. The Red and White ran off 10 running plays, all between the tackles, to drive 65 yards for a score, with QB Jack Wilson running the final 4 yards for the TD. Harold Rutherford’s PAT kick was no good so the Saints led 6-0. The rest of the first period and well into the second, neither team was able to move the ball until Tomales finally put together a march and scored on a 3-yard run with only :20 seconds left in the half. With a successful PAT the Braves took a very surprising 7-6 lead into the locker room.
The third quarter was all defense, allowing Tomales to keep their one-point lead. At one point, the Saints had moved to the Tomales eight yard line, but there the scoring attempt was foiled when the Red and White lost the ball on a fumble. Late in the game, the Saints got the ball back and began to move again. Relentlessly, they pushed the ball deeper and deeper into Braves’ territory until, with only :30 seconds left, Wilson finally scored on a 9-yard run. The PAT was again no good, but the Saints’ defense stifled the Braves after the kick-off to secure the nail-biting 12-7 win.

This was to be the eleventh game between Armijo of Fairfield and St. Helena in a series which began in 1926. Armijo held a 6-4 edge in the 10 games thus far, and only two of the contests had been decided by more than one touchdown. The 1943 match-up was expected to be another close one.
The game started slowly with both teams being forced to punt on their initial possessions, but then the Saints drove 63 yards in 9 plays with fullback Lou Mozzini barreling in for the TD from 4 yards out. Matt Spear’s kick was wide and the score remained 6-0. After another Armijo punt, the Saints drove to the Indians’ 45, but the short drive was suddenly brought to a halt when a Bob Sculatti pass was intercepted and returned 60 yards for a score. A PAT kick gave Armijo the lead at 7-6. The second quarter passed without any scoring so the Indians had a one-point lead at the half..
Early in the 3rd quarter, St. Helena put together another long drive and Mozzini scored his second TD of the night on a 15 yard run. After halfback Al Abruzzini ran in for the extra point, the Saints were up 13-7. Later in the same period, Matt Spear capped off a Saint drive of 55 yards with a 13-yard scamper and the Saints led 19-7 at the end of the third. It wasn’t until late in the game that Armijo finally put together some offense and scored on a 25-yard TD run. The PAT was good and the score was now much tighter at 19-14. The Saints could go nowhere against the aroused Indian defense and were forced to punt. Armijo took over on their own 44 and began to move the ball toward the St. Helena goal. Time was a factor now, but the Indians were sharp in their pass attack and reached the Saints’ ten yard line with about a minute left and no time-outs. A first down pass was batted down. Another aerial attempt gained five yards on second down. On third and goal from the five the Indians QB fired a strike to his wide-open receiver in the end zone, but the ball was dropped. Finally, on fourth and goal from the 5 and only seconds left in game, Saints’ defensive back Jack Brayton intercepted a pass in the end zone to preserve the pressure-packed win and a collective sigh of relief could be heard from the St. Helena crowd.

Oct. 16, 1953 Clearlake Lakeport 18-12

This was the second meeting between these two schools as the series began the year before with a 19-0 victory for the Saints on Carpy Field. The Cardinals came into this ‘53 game undefeated while the Saints were only 1-2. Most observers were predicting that the Lake County squad would win easily.
The first period went scoreless, but Clearlake took the lead early in the second quarter after a 55-yard drive resulted in a 5-yard TD pass. The PAT was no good and the score was 6-0. The rest of the first half went scoreless and the Cardinals had a one touchdown lead half way through the game.
Mid-way through the 3rd quarter, the Saints got on the board when halfback Mason Hoberg scored on a 20-yard run. The extra point was missed so the score was tied 6-6. Clearlake, though, responded quickly with another score to regain the lead at 12-6 with only seconds remaining in the period. The first half of the final period was scoreless, then, with 6 minutes left in the game, and hope fading fast, St. Helena’s seemingly dormant offense came to life and marched 48 yards to the Clearlake twenty. From there Saint quarterback Ray Torres passed to tight end Bob Trinchero for a TD to tie the game 12-12 The PAT kick was no good, so the score remained knotted. After forcing Clearlake to punt on its next possession, the Saints smashed down the field 50 yards in 6 plays until fullback Harlan Morley bulled his way into the end zone from 3 yards out to give the Red and White an 18-12 lead with just under one minute left in the game. Clearlake wasn’t able to overcome the lack of time remaining and the Saints had pulled out another exciting, last-minute win.

Oct. 7, 1955 Vacaville Carpy Field, St. Helena 13- 6

Back when the city of Vacaville wasn’t much bigger than St. Helena, the Saints and Bulldogs used to occasionally go after each other in football, and, in 1932-1933 were even in the same league together, the long-defunct Solano County League South. Going into this ’55 contest, the Saints had won three of the five games between the two schools.
After a scoreless first period, Vacaville opened the second quarter with a drive that ended with an 8-yard TD run. The PAT kick was no good and Vacaville led 6-0. With two minutes left in the opening half, St. Helena drove 30 yards to the Vacaville 23, and from there Saints’quarterback Roland Vierra tossed a TD pass to tight end Ed Bowers. The same duo followed this play with another pass connection for the extra point and the Saints were up 7-6 at the half.
The third quarter was like the first—scoreless. The Saints did score once, on a 35-yard run by halfback Bob Pestoni, but the play was called back because of a penalty. The fourth period saw another St. Helena TD called back via penalty and it was looking more and more as if the game might end with the one point margin. On a subsequent Saints’ possession, however, fullback George Steinauer capped off a 56-yard drive by rambling across the goal for a 6-yard TD run. The PAT kick failed and St. Helena led 13-6 with 4:05 left in the game. After receiving the kick-off, the Bulldogs were forced to punt by a tenacious St. Helena defense, and the Saints took over on their own 44 with two minutes remaining. A strong run attack produced two first downs and, with the ball on the Vacaville 35 and only :15 seconds left the Saints had only to hold on to the pigskin to secure the win. For some reason, however, and much to the dismay of St. Helena fans, the Saints attempted a pass. An alert Tom Berra of Vacaville picked it off on his own 20 and headed for the St. Helena goal looking as if he would surely score an easy TD. 61 yards later, however, as time expired, Steinauer and Bowers were able to catch Berra from behind and drag him down on the Saints’ 19 yard line to save the game..

Oct. 24, 1958 Cloverdale Carpy Field, St. Helena 7- 6

The Saints were off to a very disappointing and frustrating 1-4 start to this ’58 campaign, losing four games in a row by an average score of 32-6. St. Helena needed a win badly, any kind of win.
The first 19 minutes of the game went scoreless as neither team could even gain a first down. Finally, the Saints put together a scoring drive, and with only 3 minutes left in the second quarter, halfback Chuck Challela scored on a 5-yard run. Quarterback Walter Raymond booted the PAT and the Red and White had a 7-0 lead at the end of two periods.
Following the halftime break, the game continued on in the same fashion, as neither team could mount any offense whatsoever. Then, with only two minutes left in the game, the Red and White appeared to be on their way to a game-clinching TD, reaching the Eagles’ 20. There, however, Saints’ fullback Dale Weidmer was hit hard by three Cloverdale defenders and the ball popped into the air. The Eagles’ powerful linebacker, Jim Oster, grabbed the pigskin before it hit the turf and rambled with it for 80 yards and a touchdown. Now, all the Eagles had to do was kick the point after and the game would be tied. The PAT kick attempt, though, was heroically blocked by the Saints and the game was miraculously saved! Oh, by the way, the hero who blocked the kick was none other than Dale Weidmer.

Oct. 16, 1959 Clearlake Carpy Field, St. Helena 24-20

The Clearlake Cardinals had joined North Bay League III in 1957, adding a fifth school to the League formed in 1953 with St. Helena, Calistoga, Cloverdale, and Tomales. The teams had split their first two league games against each other, the Saints roughing up the Cards 33-18 in 1957, and Clearlake blasting St. Helena 33-6 in 1958. Both teams were looking very good in ’59, each squad unbeaten in four games, and it was expected to be a much tighter battle. And, boy, was it!
The first quarter started with a bang as Clearlake stopped the Saints and forced a punt that they returned 55 yards to the St. Helena 28. Three plays later QB Dick Howard scored for the Cardinals on a 2-yard run. A PAT run was good to make the score 7-0. The Saints responded immediately when quarterback Walter Raymond found tight end Tom Myers open for a 28-yard gain to the Cardinals’ 4, and from there Raymond ran in for a score making it 7-6. Raymond’s PAT kick was no good. After this quick start, though, both teams’ defenses took over and there was no scoring for the rest of the first half.
Early in the third period, St. Helena scored again when Raymond handed off to the Saints’ great running back Tom Blanchfield, who looked as if he were going to try to sweep around his right side. Blanchfield stopped, though, and fired a long pass to Raymond who had snuck down the sideline unnoticed by the Cardinals’ secondary, the play resulting in a 65-yard touchdown. The PAT was again no good, but the Saints were in the lead 12-7. Clearlake wasted no time in regaining the lead, however, as they marched 67 yards in 6 plays, scoring on a 23-yard TD pass. An extra point pass was also complete and the Cardinals led 14-12. It was looking like the Saints might take the lead right back, as they sped down to the Clearlake 35, but the Cardinals’ Pete Brown dramatically changed the whole scenario by intercepting a Blanchfield pass and returning it 70 yards for a score. This time, Clearlake’s PAT attempt was no good, but they had an eight point lead at 20-12 at the end of the third period.
The 4th quarter saw the Saints drive 72 yards in 10 plays, most of them passes, until Raymond hit end Bob Penoli in the end zone for a score. Once again, the Saints failed to convert and the score was 20-18 Clearlake, with now only 5 minutes left in the game. The Red and White defense came up big by forcing a three-and-out and after the Cards’ punt the Saints had the ball on their own twenty, 80 yards from a win. Raymond began throwing and the Saints moved the ball steadily down the turf until they reached the Clearlake 31. There, with 2:30 left, Raymond lofted a long pass toward Myers. Myers was hit just as the ball reached him at the three, but he made an incredible, juggling catch and then pulled two defenders into the end zone with him to put the Saints up 24-20. The Cardinals had one more chance to score after the kick-off, but Raymond picked off Howard’s third pass attempt of the drive, and with only 1:50 remaining, the Saints were able to run out the clock for a thrilling, heart-thumping victory.

Oct. 23, 1959 Cloverdale Healdsburg 25-20

Only seven nights later, hardly enough time for the pulses of St. Helena football fans to return to normal after the nail-biting 24-20 defeat of Clearlake the week before, the Saints were involved in another wild one. This time with Cloverdale.
The Eagles, who had never beaten St. Helena in six tries, took the opening kick-off and soared down the field to score on a Tom Caturegli 30-yard run. The PAT kick was no good and the score was 6-0 Cloverdale. The Saints responded immediately when, three plays after the Eagles’ kick-off, Walter Raymond passed to Tom Blanchfield for a 48-yard score. Raymond’s drop-kick was no good and so the score was tied 6-6. After the two quick scores, the defenses took over and dominated the action the rest of the half and the score remained tied at halftime.
Blanchfield returned the second half kick-off 26 yards to the 50. On first down fullback Joe Torres ripped off a 20-yard gain, and three plays later Raymond ran 12 yards for a TD. The PAT was again no good, but SH led 12-6. The Eagles responded with a quick drive of their own, scoring again on a 40-yard run by the powerful Caturegli. Caturegli’s kick was good and now Cloverdale led 13-12. Late in the same period, backed up deep in his own territory, the Saints’ Raymond appeared to be trapped by several Eagle defenders, but, while in their grasp and being pulled to the turf, he flipped a desperation toss to Blanchfield who then sped his way to an incredible 80-yard touchdown run. Raymond’s kick was good this time and the Saints were now on top 19-13.
The Eagles, undismayed by that shocking turn of events, responded by driving all the way to the St. Helena three, but lost a chance to go ahead when Saints’ linebacker George True recovered a fumble at that spot. SH was barely able to breathe a sigh of relief when the Eagles picked off a Raymond pass that gave them the ball back at the Red and White 14. Five plays later Cloverdale was in the end zone and, with Caturegli’s PAT kick, led 20-19 with only 3:10 left in the game. The Saints received the kick-off and were looking at one last chance to score and win. On first and ten from their own 31, the Red and White were called for clipping and were pushed back to their 16. Raymond then passed to Myers for 9 yards, and Torres ran for 5 more to give the Saints a 3rd and one at the 30. Raymond then handed off to Blanchfield who broke through the right side of the line and then raced down the field 70 yards on another of his amazing dodging and weaving runs for the go-ahead touchdown. The PAT was no good, but the Saints were now ahead 25-20 with just 1:15 left. The SH defense was able to hold the Eagles after the kick-off and then the Saints could wildly celebrate another amazing, nerve-wracking win.

Oct. 8, 1961 Willits Willits 19-12

Having won the first three games of the 1961 season and riding a 12-game winning streak, the Saints traveled into the cold winds of the northland to face the 1-2 Willits Wolverines. St. Helena and Willits had met on five previous occasions from 1952 to 1960 and Willits had been able to win only one of the contests. They were lying in wait for the Saints, ready to pounce on their prey.
And, pounce they did, taking the opening kick-off and scratching and clawing their way down the field, covering 62 yards in 10 running plays, with their tough halfback Willis Maxwell scoring on a 2-yard plunge. The point after was no good, but Willits was up 6-0. Late in the first quarter, after a couple of punt exchanges, the Saints moved 68 yards to the Willits 8 and from there quarterback Jim Hunt tossed a touchdown pass to halfback Bob Suffia to tie the game. Terry Vulcani’s extra point kick gave the Saints a 7-6 lead. Early in the second period, St. Helena scored again, relying mainly on the passing of Hunt to Suffia and Ray Myers. Halfback Dan Heibel capped off this 60-yard drive by scoring on an 14-yard run. Vulcani’s kick was blocked and the Saints were up 13-6. Toward the end of the half, after receiving a Willits punt on their own 30, Hunt took to the air again. Three pass completions got the Saints into Wolverine territory, and from there Hunt threw to split end Ron Arata for a 46-yard TD. Vulcani’s PAT attempt was no good, but the Red and White had a 19-6 halftime lead.
The second half turned into a defensive struggle with neither team being able to move the ball. Early in the 4th quarter, though, Willits drove 60 yards for a touchdown that brought them to within seven at 19-12. The Saints took the following kick-off and drove deep into Willits territory only to lose a fumble at the Wolverine 28. The Green and Gold northmen then took full advantage of this miscue and drove steadily toward the Saints’ goal in an attempt to tie the score. After reaching St. Helena’s five yard line, a first down run got the ball to within a foot of the Saints’ end zone. There the Red and White defense turned into a brick wall. Two line plunges by Maxwell netted absolutely nothing, and then on fourth down, the Saints’ Andrea “Bucky” Bartolucci knifed through the Willits line to throw Maxwell for a 3-yard loss to end the threat. The Saints, with only about a minute left in the game, ran out the clock and breathed a collective sigh of relief at coming away with the win, 19-12

Oct. 21, 1965 Kelseyville Lakeport 18-13

The Saints traveled to the Lake County Fairgrounds to face Kelseyville for this one, a contest that St. Helena was supposed to win easily. Since the final game of the 1959 season, the Saints had gone 50 consecutive games without a loss, and in the 5 previous meetings between the two schools, from 1959 to 1963, the Indians had not been able to score a single point against the Red and White defenses. Sometimes, however, things just don’t go the way they’re supposed to.
Early in the first period, the Indians stunned the Saints and their fans by scoring on a 30-yard pass play to cap off a 66-yard drive and take the lead 6-0. This was the first time in it last 38 games that St. Helena had trailed. The Saints had no answer to this attack as they were stymied by an extremely aggressive Kelseyville defense throughout the whole first half and were unable to even mount a threat, let alone score. The Indians, however, added another TD in the second quarter to take a 13-0 lead into halftime. The Saints hadn’t been behind by two touchdowns since November of 1959!
Mid-way through the third quarter, though, Saints’ linebacker Bill Atchley intercepted an Indian pass at the Kelseyville 36. Two plays later quarterback Jody Beitler threw a 32-yard TD pass to wide receiver Clegg Robinson for the Saints’ first score. Jeff Warren’s kick was no good, but SH was on the board at 13-6. The Red and White offense finally sparked to life in the fourth period when, after the Saints had driven 42 yards to the Indians’ 28, Beitler lofted a pass to Warren for another touchdown. Warren’s kick was again no good, however, and the Saints still trailed by one at 13-12 with just under five minutes remaining in the game. Would Kelseyville be the team to end the St. Helena streak? After forcing the Indians to punt, the Saints then drove to Kelseyville’s 32 where Beitler, with only :45 seconds left in the game, sailed a desperation pass to a streaking Ron Grams, who had somehow gotten behind the Indians’ secondary, for the crucial TD that gave St. Helena an 18-13 lead. Following the kick-off the Saints were able to contain the Indians and the Red and White had pulled out a thrilling, last-minute win..

This was the first meeting ever between these two schools, and it turned out to be a wild one!
The game began as a defensive battle, but then the Saints mounted a drive late in the first period. It looked as if the Red and White were going to score until a fumble ended the threat on the St. Vincents’ five. After punt exchanges in the second quarter, however, the Saints marched 82 yards in 6 plays, with Keith Stansberry carrying over from the 10. The PAT was no good due to a bad snap, and with 1:11 left in the first half, St. Helena led 6-0.
The Mustangs came out fired-up after the halftime break and proceeded to drive 62 yards to tie the game at 6-6. After several punt exchanges, early in the fourth period the Saints were backed up against their own goal and, on a 3rd down pass attempt, St. Vincents sacked quarterback Bruce Galleron in the end zone for a safety, putting the Mustangs on top 8-6. After the Saints’ kick-off, St. Vincents marched deep into SH territory, but the drive was stopped when the Saints’ Steve McDonald recovered a fumble at the 14. The Saints again couldn’t move the ball and punted to the Mustangs, but St. Vincents couldn’t advance either and kicked it right back to the Saints. The punt was fielded by Galleron, who then handed off to Stansberry on a reverse. The Mustangs were caught totally off-guard by this slight of hand, and Stansberry streaked 62 yards untouched for the go-ahead score. A pass for two points failed, but the Saints were up 12-8 with only 3:01 left in the game. St. Vincents’ next drive was stopped cold and the Saints were then able to run out the clock for a heart-pounding win.

Oct. 8. 1971 El Molino Carpy Field, St. Helena 18-13

St. Helena and El Molino High School of Forestville began playing each other in 1965. The Saints had won the first three contests, and the Lions had won the last three. Both teams were looking to take a 4-3 series edge.
The Saints came roaring out of the locker room, pounding 77 yards in 19 plays to score. Jon Salinger plunged in from the one for the TD, but a two-point run attempt failed and the Saints settled for a 6-0 lead. Early in the second quarter, El Molino, executing their Single Wing run attack to perfection, drove 68 yards for their first score of the night. Their kick was good so the Lions led 7-6. Two possessions later, the Saints’ Ben Collins recovered an ElMo fumble on the Lion 35. Five plays after that, SH running back Joe Moss scored from 4 yards out to push the Saints up to a 12-7 lead. A run for two points again failed. El Molino responded to this score with a smash-mouth 10-play, 80-yard drive to take a 13-12 lead into half time.
During the third period, the St. Helena defense turned back one Lion threat after another. The Saints’ Jake Ward thwarted one ElMo drive with a fumble recovery on the SH 20, and Steve Stansberry had two drive-stopping interceptions, one late in the 3rd quarter and the second early in the 4th. Midway through the final period, the Lions were driving again, but the Saints’ defense tightened up and stopped them at the SH 15. Now there were only five minutes left in the game and the Saints still trailed by one. Four plays later, the Saints had the ball on their own 46 with 1:30 left in the game. On first down, quarterback Steve McDonald launched a soaring pass to Ken McDonald for a startling 54-yard touchdown. The PAT kick was no good, but the Saints had the lead at 18-13 with 1:15 remaining. ElMo then put a real scare into the Saints by driving to the SH 32. Here, though, they fumbled and the Saints’ Bob Leija recovered and the game was saved.

Sept. 28. 1973 Pacifica Patterson Field, St. Helena 21-16

This was the only meeting ever between these two schools, but it was certainly one to be remembered.
On their first possession of the night the Saints drove quickly down the field, 52 yards in 6 plays, to an early score. The TD came on a Jeff King to Dan Bohan aerial from 31 yards out. Dan Martin’s kick was good and it was 7-0 with only 1:30 gone in the game. Three plays after the Saints’ kick-off, however, Pacifica’s Brad Stone streaked 78 yards to a touchdown, and when Stone ran in for the two-point conversion, the Spartans led 8-7. Then, on their next possession, St. Helena marched down the field again for a score, this time on a 4 yard run by King. King then passed to Mike McDonald for two points and the Saints were on top 15-8 with 5:27 still to play in the first period. It looked like the game was going to be a shoot-out, but then it settled into a tough defensive struggle and there was no more scoring in the first half.
Backed up deep in their own territory on their first second half possession, the Saints were forced to punt. The snap, however, sailed out of the end zone for a safety. St. Helena 15, Pacifica 10. When the Saints got the ball back the next time, they drove to the Spartans’ 25 but fumbled. Pacifica took full advantage of this break by confidently driving 75 yards to a touchdown. A two-point run was short but the Spartans now had the lead at 16-15. The Saints then put together a long, smooth drive to the Pacifica three, but the Spartan defense held the Red and White out of the end zone and a short field goal attempt was no good, leaving St. Helena still down by a point with only 6:05 left in the game. After holding the Spartans to a three-and-out, the Saints then methodically drove 66 yards in 8 plays, with McDonald scoring on a beautiful 27-yard run. A run attempt for two points failed, but St. Helena led 21-16 with 2:10 remaining. Undeterred by this score, Pacifica then took the ensuing kick-off and marched steadily to the Saints’ 24, but they finally ran out of time and the Red and White had pulled out a tense, exciting victory.

The 1976 Saints were off to a mediocre 2-2-0 start, but had defeated a strong Ft. Bragg team the week before 30-20. Cloverdale came into the contest at 3-1-0, also 1-0 in NCL I play. It was predicted to be another close, tough, spirited Saints-Eagles match-up and it didn’t disappoint.
Early in the first period Cloverdale, catching the Saints off-guard, jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a 58-yard pass play. The game then went scoreless until mid-way through the second quarter when the Eagles struck again on a one-yard run after a 54-yard drive. With a second successful PAT kick, the score at the half was 14-0 Cloverdale.
The third quarter went scoreless as the Saints continued to flounder on offense, gaining only two first downs through the first three periods. Early in the 4th quarter though, the Saints’ offense found its rhythm and marched 53 yards in 7 plays, with Terry O’Rourke scoring from the four. A run for the two points after failed and Cloverdale led 14-6. On the Eagles’ next possession, the Saints’ Jerry Gifford recovered a fumble on the SH 47. The Saints quickly drove to the Cloverdale 35, and from there O’Rourke threw to Dave Navonne on a halfback pass good for a TD. A pass for two points was no good, but the Saints had pulled to within two, 14-12, with 4:12 remaining in the game. Frank Sculatti then pooched a perfect onside kick which was recovered by the Saints’ Jim Burke on Cloverdale’s 45. With the clock ticking the game away, the Saints surged the 45 yards in 5 running plays topped off by John Tagliaferri’s 4-yard run. An extra point run was short, but the Saints were on top 18-14 with only :50 seconds left. After kicking off, the Eagles tried four desperation passes, but completed only one of them and the Saints had a thrilling, come-from-behind win over the long-time rival Eagles.

Nov. 20, 1977 Ferndale Patterson Field, St. Helena 22-14 (OT)

After beginning the 1977 season at 1-2, the Saints put together a 6-game winning streak to win the NCL I title and qualify for the playoffs. The North Coast Section had initiated football playoffs in 1975 and St. Helena had made it to the section finals in the first two years, only to lose 7-6 to Ferndale in 1975, and 21-14 to St. Bernards, in 1976. The Saints were ready to face Ferndale again in the ’77 finals, and they were eagerly looking to win their first NCS Class A championship.
The first period of this classic dual went scoreless as each squad struggled to get any offense going. On the first play of the second quarter, however, Saints’quarterback Bruce Wilson and halfback Rich Lomeli teamed up for a 53-yard TD pass and run, assisted by a great block by Willie Densberger at the five to spring Lomeli into the end zone. Matt Rosenbrand added the extra point kick and the Saints were out to a 7-0 lead. Just a few minutes later, though, Ferndale intercepted a Wilson pass at the Saints’ 39, and in three plays the Wildcats tied the game at 7-7. This score seemed to enrage the Saints and they took the ensuing kick-off and marched 68 yards in 9 plays, all but two of them passes, to score with 2:35 left in the half on a Wilson to Dave Navone 16-yard aerial. Rosenbrand added his second kick of the night and St. Helena led 14-7. On Ferndale’s next possession, the Saints’ Jeff Brink recovered a ‘Cat fumble at the 50. The Saints put together two first downs but Rosenbrand’s 27-yard field goal attempt was just wide as the half ended.
The second half began with a couple of punt exchanges, and then with 5:30 left in the third period, Ferndale scored on a 16-yard fumble recovery return and with the PAT kick, tied the score at 14-14. As the game progressed into the final quarter, the defenses continued to dominate. The Saints put together one drive to the Wildcats’ 19, but were stopped on downs. Neither team threatened the rest of the game and the fourth quarter ended with the two powerhouses locked in a 14-14 tie.
According to NCS playoff rules, in overtime each team gets a set of downs starting at the 10 yard line, and play continues until one team outscores the other in one of the overtime periods. The Saints won the coin toss and chose to go on offense first. Two running plays got the ball to the five and from there Wilson tossed a short pass to Lomeli in the right flat. Lomeli was hit at the one, but was able to keep his balance and struggle into the end zone for the score. The Saints then caught Ferndale totally off-guard by faking the extra point kick, and Wilson passed to Brink for two points and a 22-14 lead. The Wildcats then took the ball looking to try to tie the game and force another overtime period. Two rushing attempts netted 4 yards, and a third down run pushed the ball to the one-and-a-half. On fourth and goal, the Saints’ defense swarmed all over a run-sweep attempt stopping the play for no gain, and St. Helena had dramatically won the Northcoast Section Class A Title, 22-14. Asked by a news reporter after the game if it felt good to finally win the Section Title, Coach Charlie Toogood said with a wry smile, “Yeh, it does. But I didn’t think it would feel this good!”

The ’81 Saints were struggling. Off to a disappointing 2-4 start, and coming off a tough 18-7 league loss to Cloverdale the week before, the Red and White were looking to their Homecoming game against Willits to try to right the ship. By the end of the first quarter, however, it looked as if the Saints’ ship was sinking fast. The Wolverines scored on their first two possessions of the night, one on a 6-yard run, and the second on a 63-yard pass play. Both PAT kicks were good, and Willits led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. The Saints responded in the second period though, with QB John Toogood scoring on a one-yard sneak after a 58-yard drive. A pass for two points was incomplete and the score was 14-6. After holding Willits to a three-and-out, the Saints put together another long drive and scored on a Toogood to Steve Brown 14-yard pass. Toogood ran in for the two extra points and the score was knotted 14-14 at halftime.
The two teams started the second half with a couple of punt exchanges, but then the Saints drove to the Willits’ 33 where Toogood tossed another TD aerial to Brown. Jeff Mensch kicked the extra point and the score was 21-14 at the end of the third. The final period was all defense until, late in the game, the Wolverines began to steadily pound the ball into Saints’ territory. With just under 2 minutes remaining, Willits scored from the two to pull within one point at 21-20. The Wolverines’ PAT kick to tie the game, however, was wide of the mark, and the Saints, after recovering an on-side kick, had squeaked out an exciting one-point win.

Oct. 17, 1986 Rio Vista Patterson Field, St. Helena 12-10

Battered and bruised by a series of injuries early in the season, one of them to starting QB Kyle Schuh, the Saints had struggled through the first five games of the season at 1-4. This Homecoming match-up with Rio Vista looked, early on, as if it were headed in the same direction as the Rams were playing great defense and also put together two long scoring drives to take a 10-0 lead at the half.
In the third quarter, though, the Saints resorted to a bit of trickery to find some life at last. QB John Perez handed off to halfback Matt Cia on what appeared to be a wide running play. Cia, however, straightened up and threw a 56-yard pass to Dave Booth to get the ball to the Rams’ 20. On the next play Perez found Booth wide open in the end zone for a TD. The PAT was no good but the Saints were back in it at 10-6. The game once again settled into a defensive struggle until mid-way through the fourth period when Booth picked off a pass and returned it 21 yards to the Rio Vista five yard line. Three tough plays later, Saints fullback Bob Hughes bulled his way into the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown with just under 3 minutes left in the game. The extra point kick was wide, leaving the score at 12-10, but the Saints, after kicking off, were able to contain the Rams to win a heart-pounding Homecoming victory.

Oct. 24, 1986 Dixon Patterson Field, St. Helena 13-12

Coming off the nerve-wracking win over Rio Vista a week earlier, the Saints hosted another set of Rams, as the Dixon version came to town. The two games, in fact, were almost identical. Dixon jumped out to a half time lead of 12-0 by scoring a TD in the first quarter on a 10-yard run, and another in the second period on a 6-yard run. Both extra point attempts were no good.
Mid-way through the third quarter, the Saints’ John Perez threw to a wide-open Dave Booth for a 45-yard TD pass-and-run and the Saints were within six points at 12-6. Neither team could put together any offense until mid-way through the final period when the Saints drove to the Rams’ 24. From there, they ran the same halfback pass play they’d used the week before against Rio Vista, Matt Cia to Booth for a 24-yard TD. Booth kicked the critical PAT and the Saints were in the lead 13-12 with just 3 minutes left. Dixon, however, received the Saints’ kick-off and marched right down the field, reaching the SH 19. The Saints’ defense stiffened however, and then, with only a minute left in the game, a Dixon field goal attempt was no good, and the Saints had their second gut-twisting win in two weeks.

Sept. 21, 1991 Tamalpais Mill Valley 21-20

St Helena entered this game on a 14-game losing streak which dated back to October 13, 1989 when they had defeated Justin-Siena 28-19. This was the longest streak of that kind in school history and the Saints were hungry to notch a win and stop the skid.
Early in the first quarter, the Saints’ Drew Dixon blocked a Tam punt at the Red Hawks’ 23. Five plays later, Nick Ceja dashed across the goal line from three yards out, and when Ceja added the extra point kick it was quickly 7-0. Later in the same period, Tam responded with a score to tie the game at seven. Mid-way through the second quarter, Saints’ QB Skyler Beresini snuck in from the one after a 56-yard drive to make the score 13-7. The PAT attempt was no good.
On the Saints’ third possession of the final half, Beresini capped off a 52-yard march with a 3-yard run and when Raul Murillo scampered in for two more points it was 21-7 St. Helena, and, with just two minutes remaining in the 3rd quarter, it appeared as if the Saints were easily going to end the losing streak. Tam, however, had other ideas. Early in the fourth period, the Hawks scored after a 55-yard drive to make the game 21-14. Then, with just over 5 minutes remaining, Tam began a drive that ended 63 yards later with another TD bringing the count to 21-20. The Hawks decided, with just under two minutes left in the game, to go for two to win the game. It looked for a moment as if the Tam ball carrier was clear to take it in for the score, but Beresini made a tremendous game-saving tackle to preserve the heart-pounding win and end the losing skein.

Nov. 15, 1996 Justin-Siena Patterson Field, St. Helena 26-21

The Saints and the Justin-Siena Braves had begun playing one another in 1971. During those 25 years the two Napa Valley schools had developed an intense, bitter rivalry, and the annual game had become known as the Vine Bowl. Justin had pretty much dominated the series, 16 wins to only 9 for the Saints, and in fact the Braves had won 13 of the last 16 games. Coming into this ’96 encounter, both schools were struggling with 2-7 overall records, and 0-4 in SCAL competition, and the game would determine who would finish in last place for the season.
The first time they had the ball, the Braves scored by driving 62 yards in 9 plays to lead 7-0. The rest of the first period went scoreless. Mid-way through the second quarter, the Saints’ Ryan Maloney finished a 64-yard drive by scoring on a 4-yard run. With Ehren Bylund’s PAT kick the Saints had pulled even at 7-7, which ended up being the half-time score.
In the third period, St. Helena’s Matt Johnson recovered a Justin fumble at mid-field and, five plays later, QB Jeff Herdell fired a strike to wide receiver Cliff Little for a 22-yard TD. Bylund’s kick was again good and the Saints were in front 14-7. Later in the same quarter, the Saints’ Buck Lambert intercepted a Braves’ pass at the Justin 41 and returned it to their 23. It looked as if the turnover was not going to help much until, on 4th and 11 at the 24, Herdell threw a 22-yard pass to Johnson to advance the ball to the Braves’ two. On the next play Herdell ran in for the touchdown. Bylund’s kick was no good this time, but the Saints were up 20-7.
Mid-way through the final quarter Justin blocked a St. Helena punt and took over on the Saints’ 18. Four plays later they scored a touchdown and with the PAT the tally was 20-14. Following the kick-off, the Saints drove the ball to Justin’s 30, but the Braves’ defense stiffened and SH turned the ball over on downs. Fired up by their defensive stop, Justin then marched 76 yards to score on a 9-yard TD pass. When the PAT kick sailed through the uprights Justin was ahead 21-20 with only 2:21 left in the game. The Saints returned the kick-off to their 38 and two plays later were at the 42 with a 3rd and 6. With only 1:52 left in the game, Herdell dropped back to pass and, spotting a wide-open Johnson streaking down the sideline, hit him with a perfect 58-yard TD strike. Bylund’s kick was no good, but the Saints held on to win a scintillating 26-21 thriller.

Oct. 11, 1997 Linden Patterson Field, St. Helena 29-28

The Saints always seem to save some of their most dramatic wins for Homecoming and the 1997 contest with Linden was no different. Early in this tense encounter, Eric Rich scored for the Saints on a 1-yard plunge after a 55-yard drive. Ehren Bylund added the extra point kick and it was quickly 7-0 Saints. On its next possession, though, Linden responded with a steady 56-yard drive to tie the score at seven just as the first quarter ended. In the second period, the Lions scored two more touchdowns while the Saints couldn’t get any offense going at all, and the score was 21-7 Linden at the half.
On the first possession of the third quarter, the Saints’ Mario Sculatti scored on a 3-yard run to cap off a 10-play, 58-yard drive, and with Bylund’s successful kick, the score was 21-14 Lions. The SH defense then forced Linden to punt after a three-and-out and the Saints’John Leija caught the kick on his 20, avoided two would-be tacklers and then, behind a wall of blockers, sped 80 yards for a TD. Bylund’s kick was again good and the score was now tied 21-21. Early in the 4th period, Linden’s offense came back to life and the Lions drove 57 yards for the go-ahead TD. With a successful kick Linden now led 28-21. The teams exchanged punts on their next two possessions and the Saints got the ball back on their own 39 with only a little over 2 minutes remaining in the contest. After two pass completions, SH, with only 1:26 remaining, was faced with a 3rd and 4 at their own 45. From there QB Adam Beattie launched a beautiful 55-yard bomb to his favorite receiver Cliff Little for a stunning touchdown and the Saints were now down by a point at 28-27. The Saints’ coaches decided to go for the win, and Beattie’s PAT pass to Bylund was right on the money giving the Red and White the lead 29-28. After the kick-off, the Saints’ Herman Corro recovered a Linden fumble to secure the incredible comeback win.

Sept. 25, 1998 Tomales Patterson Field, St. Helena 7- 6

St. Helena and Tomales had begun playing football against each other in 1940. The two schools were members of North Bay Leagues II and III for twenty years and the Saints had totally dominated the series, winning 18, losing only 3, with 3 of the games ending in ties. Tomales, though, by 1998, had become a small-school football powerhouse, and the Saints had had some very lean years in the early and mid-1990s, and observers were expecting a close game.
The first quarter was a defensive battle until with one minute left the Saints’ Loren Gardner scored on a 2-yard run at the end of a solid 8-play, 64-yard drive. A big play in the scoring march occurred when Mike DePina ripped off a key 30-yard run. Brandon Bettencourt added the PAT kick and St. Helena was on top 7-0. Once again the defenses took over and the score remained the same well into the second half. Late in the 3rd quarter Tomales drove to the Saints’ 4, but the Red and White defense came up big and prevented a score. Neither team could mount any offense in the fourth period until the Braves drove 52 yards to score with just three minutes to go in the game. Tomales, deciding to try for the win by going for a two-point conversion, threw a pass but St. Helena’s Brian Little broke it up in the end zone to preserve the narrow 7-6 lead. The Saints’ Matt Shaw then recovered the Braves’ onside kick attempt and St. Helena had won another tension-packed nail-biter.

Nov. 16, 2002 Ft. Bragg Ft. Bragg 27-26

This, the last game of the 2002 regular season, was a crucial one for St. Helena, for a win would get them into the NCS playoffs. But, over the years in its rivalry with Ft. Bragg, the Saints had only been able to win 2 of 9 games on the Timberwolves’ home field, finding it a very difficult place to have success.
The first period went scoreless and then Ft. Bragg scored the first TD of the game after a 58-yard drive to take a 7-0 lead with 8:50 left in the half. The Saints had an immediate answer, however, and marched 80 yards in 12 plays, the TD coming on a Ryan Bailey 9-yard run. Ryan Teske’s extra point kick was good and it was tied 7-7, which was the score at the half.
Ft. Bragg opened the second half with a bolt of lightning when the speedy Mike Cimolino ran back the kick-off 92 yards for a score. The PAT kick was no good and the score was suddenly 13-7 ‘Wolves. On the next possession of the period, the Saints drove to the Ft. Bragg 21 and from there quarterback J. J. Warren found wide receiver Lance Zepeda in the end zone for a score. Teske’s kick was good again, and St. Helena held a 14-13 lead. Ft. Bragg scored again, though, with only :41 seconds left in the third quarter, and kicked the extra point to go back on top 20-14. After a St. Helena punt, Cimolino darted 42 yards for a TD making it 26-14 Ft. Bragg, and the Saints’ hopes of making the play-offs were looking dim. With 7:00 left in the game, however, a Saint punt was muffed by Ft. Bragg on the T‘Wolves 23 and Zepeda recovered. Three plays later the Saints were on the home team’s five when Warren hit Blayne Rabanal for a touchdown. Teske’s kick made it 26-21 Ft. Bragg. On the ensuing set of downs, the Saints’ Dustin Dorman picked off a Timberwolve pass and returned it 10 yards to the Ft. Bragg 29. Warren, on first down, hit Rabanal with a pass that brought the ball to the one. On the next play, Bailey charged into the end zone for the go-ahead score. A run for two points was stopped but the Saints had come back to take a 27-26 lead. There was still 3:47 left to play, though, plenty of time for Ft. Bragg to get another score, but the Saints’ defense shut them down and then the offense ran out the clock to preserve the crucial, hard-fought win.

Oct. 18, 2003 Lower Lake Patterson Field, St. Helena 15-14

Homecoming. Guess what! Another thriller!
The game seemingly started off on a bad note for the Saints when on their first possession they turned the ball over to Lower Lake on their own 37. But, on a third and 7 from the 34, the Trojans tried to pass and the Saints’ Peter Molinari picked it off and ran for a 76-yard touchdown. Isaac Leija ran in for two points and the Saints were up 8-0. Early in the second period, Lower Lake drove to a TD to bring the score to 8-6. Then, just before the half, Saints’ QB Gaetano Bettinelli threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Blayne Rabanal, and when Gustavo Vasquez kicked the PAT, the Saints took a 15-6 lead into the locker room.
The third and fourth quarters were both scoreless until, with just under 6 minutes left in the game, the Trojans drove 62 yards in 8 plays to pull within 15-14. The Saints received the following kick-off but were unable to move and punted to Lower Lake which took over on their own 42. It wasn’t looking good for the Saints as the Trojans drove relentlessly toward the SH goal. With about a minute left, though, the Lower Lake drive was finally stopped at the Saints’ 18 by a defense that was just flat-out determined to not lose in the final seconds. Just another typical, nerve-frazzling, Homecoming game.

Oct. 29, 2004 Middletown Middletown 21-18

The 2004 Saints were 6-1, their best start in six years, their only loss coming at the hands of Willits, 12-6, in the fourth game of the season. Middletown was having a great year, undefeated at 7-0, and was surging toward another league title. This game was huge for both schools.
The first quarter was like a ping-pong match. First, on the game’s third play, the Saints’ Carlo Trinchero rumbled 50 yards to the Mustangs’ 13 yard line, and from there, on the following play, Luke McMullen ran in for the touchdown. Trinchero added the PAT kick and the Saints were out in front 7-0. Middletown came right back with a score of their own to make the score 7-6, but they missed their PAT attempt and the Saints clung to a one-point margin. Before the period was over the Saints had scored again on a five yard run by Robert Covey, capping off a 65-yard drive, and with Trinchero’s second kick of the game, the Saints had taken a 14-6 lead. The contest then settled down for a bit offensively until, with about 6 minutes left in the second period, the Mustangs drove 92 yards in 14 plays, scoring with only :09 left in the half. A two-point pass attempt failed, however, and SH still had the lead, 14-12.
The second half was a snarling, clawing dog-fight. Late in the third quarter, Middletown scored on a 22-yard pass play and took the lead. Another 2-point attempt was no good, but the Mustangs were up now 18-14 with 4:05 left in the third quarter. The game then progressed into the fourth period and, finally, with time becoming a factor now, the Saints put together a grinding 14-play, 72–yard drive topped off by a Covey 1-yard TD plunge on a third and goal. Trinchero’s third kick was good and it was 21-18 St. Helena. Middletown wasn’t done yet, though, and took the kick-off and drove from their own 35 to the SH 32. Here, the Red and White defense stiffened and held the Mustangs to 5 yards on their next three plays. Then, after a crucial Mustang fourth down pass fell incomplete, the Saints had the ball in their possession with only :45 seconds remaining, and they easily ran out the clock and began to wildly celebrate the sensational win.

Coming off the dramatic win over Middletown the previous week, the Saints couldn’t afford a let-down as they now had to face the always powerful Ft. Bragg Timberwolves—in Ft. Bragg. It was another must win for the Saints if they had any hopes of making the play-offs.
The game opened with a St. Helena kick-off and a Ft. Bragg punt. Taking the ball over on their own 30, the Saints marched immediately to a score, 70 yards in 9 plays, to take a 6-0 lead. The PAT kick was no good. The defenses then took over for awhile and there was no more scoring until the Saints’ Robert Covey plunged over the goal from 3 yards out capping another long SH drive. A run for two points failed and the score at the half was 12-0 Saints.
Early in the 3rd period, the Saints’ Eddie McMullen stunned the Ft. Bragg crowd by ripping off a 65-yard TD run, and with 8:45 remaining in the quarter, SH was on top 18-0. This last burst by McMullen seemed to bring the T‘Wolves to life as they put together their first drive of the game and scored a touchdown on the initial play of the 4th quarter. With the successful PAT kick the score was now 18-7. After an exchange of punts, Ft. Bragg took over on their own 28 with just over 2 minutes left. The Timberwolves were throwing on every down and finally scored with :52 seconds remaining to pull to within five at 18-13. After a successful extra point kick, the score was 18-14. The two teams then lined up for the obvious onside kick attempt. The kick was hard and low and there was a mad scramble for the ball. When the officials finally unpiled the players, they found the pigskin firmly in the grasp of the Saints’ Carlo Trinchero, and St. Helena had won another thriller!

On a very hot Saturday afternoon at the north end of Clear Lake, the Saints squared off against the Upper Lake Cougars. The game quickly proceeded to get hotter than the temperature.
Upper Lake took the opening kick-off and roared 64 yards down the field to score and take a quick 7-0 lead. The Saints received the Cougars’ kick-off and did exactly the same thing, traveling 65 yards in 8 plays to score, Jake Holguin doing the honors with an 18-yard TD run. When Holguin added the PAT kick, it was tied 7-7. Late in the 2nd quarter Upper Lake scored on a 13-yard TD pass, but missed the extra point and took a 13-7 lead with 3:28 left in the half. After receiving the kick-off the Saints blitzed the Cougars with pass after pass and eventually scored when Holguin threw a 34-yard strike to Chris Yeakey. Holguin’s kick was again good, and with only :40 left in the half, the Saints were on top 14-13
The third period opened with the Saints taking the kick-off and marching directly to their third score as Dave Fanucci capped off the 62-yard drive with a 2-yard TD run. This time Holguin’s kick was wide and the Saints settled for a 20-13 lead. For the rest of the third period, and well into the fourth, neither offense could get anything going, but then things started popping again. With 5:29 left in the game, the Saints’ Dylan Rahn recovered a Cougar fumble at the SH 46. Two plays later, Holguin hit Yeakey with another TD pass, this one for 46 yards. Holguin then threw to Yeakey again to add two more points and the Saints looked to have a comfortable 28-13 lead. However, Upper Lake’s Robert McCutcheon grabbed the St. Helena kick-off and streaked 73 yards down the middle of the field for a TD. When the Cougars added a two point run, the score was suddenly 28-21. The Saints couldn’t do anything on offense after the kick-off and were forced to punt. Upper Lake, taking over on their own 37, then proceeded to fly down the field, 63 yards in 4 plays to score on a 4-yard run and bring the count to 28-27. With only 2:14 left in the game, the Cougars decided to go for two and the win, but their quarterback fumbled on the play and Dave Fanucci eagerly smothered the ball to prevent the score. The Cougars then tried an onside kick but the Saints’ Billy Paulisich grabbed it to secure the heart-pounding win.

Smith booted both extra points, and, with 8:22 left in the second quarter the score was 14-0 St. Helena. Kelseyville, though, responded with a TD of their own just before half time, and when the PAT kick was wide, the score was 14-6 Saints.
The Knights started the third period in the same manner as they finished the second, driving 15 yards to the Saints’ 42 and then scoring with a bang on a 42-yard pass play. Again, the PAT was no good, but the score was now 14-12. The Saints responded quickly when Smith ran 47 yards for his second TD of the night. When he kicked his third PAT, the game stood at 21-12. Right before the end of the third period, Kelseyville came back with another score to pull within three. A pass attempt for the extra two points was incomplete, but the Knights were now only trailing 21-18. On their next possession the Saints’ blundered badly by fumbling and the Knights recovered at the SH 22. Three plays later the Indians were at the Saints’ four, but the Red and White defense came up with a huge goal line stand turning away the threat. The Saints, however, were forced to punt after three downs had gained only 3 yards, and Kelseyville was back in business at the St. Helena 47. The Saints’ defense again, however, rose to the occasion to stop the Knights dead in their tracks, and, with only :42 seconds left, the Red and White took over on downs at their own 32, and another gut-wrenching win was secure.

New Head Coach George Davis led the 1960 St. Helena football team to Dixon High School to open the 1960 football season, little did anyone know that this night would be the beginning of the amazing 6-year unbeaten streak that would follow.
The Saints took a quick 6-0 lead on their first possession of the game when quarterback Walter Raymond threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to halfback Tom Blanchfield to complete a 60-yard drive. Raymond’s extra point kick was no good. After holding Dixon to a three-and-out, Blanchfield returned the Rams’ punt 36 yards to the Dixon 8, and on the next play ran in for his second TD of the night. Once again, Raymond’s kick was no good but the Saints led 12-0. In the second quarter, Dixon marched 56 yards for a touchdown as their tough fullback John Hays scored on a 3-yard run, and with a successful point after, the score stood at 12-7. On their next possession, the Saints moved 54 yards in 5 plays with Blanchfield finishing the drive with an 18-yard TD run. Another Raymond kick kick attempt was no good and the Saints led 18-7. Trailing by two TDs, the Rams went to the air. Saints’ defensive back Jim Hunt intercepted one of the passes at mid-field and returned it for a touchdown, but the score was nullified because of a clipping penalty against the Saints on the return, so the score at the half remained 18-7.
Mid-way through the 3rd period Dixon’s Hays ran 10 yards for a second Ram TD, and with a successful PAT kick, closed the gap to 18-14. The rest of the game turned into a tough defensive battle with neither team being able to score and the Saints emerged with a hard-fought 18-14 win.

The undefeated Cloverdale Eagles flew into town for what most observers were calling the NBL III championship game, even though it was only the second week of the league season. It was expected to be a close, hard-fought contest, as in the previous two seasons the Saints had eked out narrow 7-6 and 25-20 wins over the Eagles and Cloverdale was looking for revenge. But it turned out to be no contest.

The game was played on a field that had been totally soaked by pouring rains during the week leading up to the contest, and the outcome, it appeared, would probably be decided by the defenses and which team made the fewest mistakes offensively.
The first quarter went scoreless as neither team could seem to get their offenses untracked in the mud. In the second period, though, the Saints received a short Eagle punt on their own 44,. On first down, Beitler hit Warren with a 39-yard pass good to the Cloverdale 17. Four plays later, Tanaka bulled his way into the end zone from the five for the first score of the game. Warren ran over the goal for the PAT and the Saints were out to a 7-0 lead. After the ensuing kick-off, the Eagles responded with an 8-play, 72-yard drive (54 of them on a run by Carl Lingner), for a score. The Eagles’ extra point kick was no good, however, and St. Helena clung to a narrow 7-6 lead at the half.
The third period, like the first, was scoreless. Mid-way through the final quarter, though, the Saints’ Jim Del Bondio pounced on a Cloverdale fumble at the Saints’ 35. Taking advantage of this break, a series of runs by Tanaka and Beitler carried the Saints to the Cloverdale 20. From there, a first down run attempt lost a yard. On second down the Saints were penalized five yards for illegal procedure. A run on second and 16 brought a gain of 3 yards leaving the Saints with a 3rd and 13 at the Cloverdale 23. On third down the Saints were penalized 15 more yards for holding, then a pass on 3rd and 28 gained seven yards to the Eagles’ 31. Here the Saints decided to try to pass for the first down, but the ball was intercepted by the Eagles’ Norman Pardini, who then slogged his way untouched 70 yards for what would be the winning score. Eagles 12, Saints 7.


**** The ’65 squad put together an outstanding 7-1-1 season, which most schools would have celebrated as a great one, and, aside from the fact that the Saints suffered a tie and a loss for the first time in six years, it was a very fine season indeed. But when you’re used to being perfect, anything less, I suppose, is a disappointment.
