Bishop Advances with 2nd Playoff Shutout

Cardinals dispatch Mary Star of the Sea 36-0. Santa Barbara's magical season ends in a 34-14 loss to Newbury Park.

Bishop Diego High head coach Tom Crawford preached defense all week, and Friday night Cardinals defenders played like believers. The 36-0 victory over Mary Star of the Sea is Bishop’s second straight shutout, and earns it a tough trip to Temple City in round two of the CIF playoffs in the Mid-Valley Division.

On offense, quarterback Christian Winnewisser passed for three touchdowns and 238 yards, connecting six times with Eli Orozco. Winnewisser was 15 for 22 on the night.

Santa Barbara High, meanwhile, ran into trouble early against Newbury Park in round one of post-season play. The Dons found themselves down 20-0 in the first quarter, and could never bounce all the way back. Newbury Park, champions of the Marmonte League, enjoyed a considerable size advantage and kept the lid on the Santa Barbara offense, despite impressive second-half TD passes of 66 and 30 yards from quarterback John Uribe to receiver Roberto Nelson. Newbury Park’s Chris Brown had an MVP night, scoring on runs of 67 and four yards, and catching a 56-yard touchdown pass.

Santa Barbara coach Will Gonzales concludes a strong season that notched seven wins, and featured big victories over Dos Pueblos and San Marcos to earn the city championship.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
