Marin Catholic Wildcats Roll Over Alhambra

leave a comment »

Marin County | California

The Marin Catholic Wildcats rolled over Alhambra (48-9) last Saturday and will be facing Rancho Cotate tomorrow as they advance to the sectional semifinals. My weather app forecasts rain, so that complicates everyone’s game plans. I’ve got my new rain gear out, prepared for the worst.

Here are some of the Alhambra game photos. These and many more are for sale on VarsityPix.com. I donate my share of profits to homeless programs in Marin County.

Marin Catholic defeats Tam in Postseason Opener

leave a comment »

Marin County | California

Marin Catholic football opened its first game of the postseason with a 50-6 home victory over Tam last Saturday. The weather was bright and sunny, which is fine except that Rica bought me $200 worth of rain gear. Now I’m wondering if it will go to waste. There’s been little rain this season as California is in the midst of a three-year drought. On the plus side, Marin County has avoided the terrible weather that seems to be plaguing the rest of the country.

The entire team played well, but I was stuck on one player. Joe Kelly (85) had five catches for 129 yards, including a 61 yard touchdown. I don’t think I’ve ever spoken to Joe, but I mention this because Rica worked for many years with his uncle, Andy Kelly, also a physical therapist, at the Asher Clinic. So there’s a connection, although a little tenuous.

The MC Wildcats will host Alhambra in the D-III quarterfinals this Saturday.

You’ll find more game photos at VarsityPix.

Marin County | California

The Marin Catholic football team beat Terra Linda (40-14) last Saturday, creating a three-way tie for MCAL first place with Justin-Siena and Novato. This Saturday Marin Catholic will enter the North Coast Section Division III tournament with a game against Tamalpais. Earlier this year the Wildcats defeated Tam 54-14.

Here are some quick picks from photos I took Saturday. Many more are at VarsityPix.com.

Marin Catholic Rolls Over Redwood

with 6 comments

Marin County | California

Marin Catholic football shutout Redwood last Saturday 63-0. The Wildcats face a weak Terra Linda tomorrow and are sure to share this year’s MCAL title. The postseason starts in two weeks.

As the season winds down, I have to admit that my photos are looking more and more alike to me. I keep hoping for something special and unique, but it hasn’t happened yet. I keep trying, and that hope brings me back to the games every week. I’d like to take a photograph that people look at for more than a second or two. It’s a little discouraging because digital photographers are producing and publishing so many good pictures these days that it’s hard for people to find the time to savor any single image.

Inky Beecher sent me a Guardian article this morning about Robert Frank. He turns 90 this Sunday and is considered one of America’s iconic photographers. A quote from Robert Frank struck me as a sentiment I hope I can put off as long as possible. “There’s no point in it anymore for me, and I get no satisfaction from trying to do it. There are too many pictures now. It’s overwhelming. A flood of images that passes by, and says, ‘why should we remember anything?’ There is too much to remember now, too much to take in.”

What do you think? When was the last time you spend more than a moment on any photo?

Here are some of the game images. You’ll find more at http:/www.VarsityPix.com.

Marin Catholic Football Defeats Tamalpais

Marin County | California

The Marin Catholic football team defeated Tamalpais 54-14 last Saturday. The Wildcats have this Saturday off but will be hoping Novato defeats Justin-Siena, giving the Wildcats a chance to share the league title. Marin Catholic lost to Justin-Siena earlier this year, snapping a long series of MCAL victories.

Look for more game photos at VarsityPix.com.

Marin Catholic Football Defeats Drake

with 2 comments

Marin County | California

After a particularly rough week, the Wildcats bounced back Saturday on their home field with a 42-0 shutout against Drake High School. They did this without the help of several key players suspended by the school’s administration for undisclosed misdeeds. I was surprised that our local paper published their names. I’m not sure the students deserved this extra shaming.

The week before Marin Catholic experienced a heartbreaking 3-0 loss at Justin-Siena, also played without key team members. According to our local paper, this snapped MC’s 37-game league winning streak dating from 2009.

Here are some photos from the Drake game. Many more are at VarsityPix.com.
