By Ray Hamill — The South Fork Cubs will try to bounce back from their first loss of the season in football this weekend, when they travel to San Francisco to play Stuart Hall.
It won’t be an easy task for the Cubs, however, against a Knights team that is 2-0 with big wins over Woodside Priory and Upper Lake the past two weekends.
South Fork (3-1) fell 36-22 at home to Branson on Friday night.
Seniors C.J. Van Meter and Cody Wyatt continue to lead the way for the Cubs.
At quarterback, Van Meter has completed 32-of-70 pass attempts for 586 yards and eight touchdowns.
The senior standout has just one interception.
Wyatt, meanwhile, has been the team’s most effective weapon both running the ball and through the air.
Through the opening four games, he has 284 yards receiving and 343 yards on the ground, with a combined six TDs.
Van Mater has been just as effective on the ground, with 312 yards and five TDs, while sophomore Christian Carlson has emerged as a leading threat with 218 yards total offense and three touchdowns.
Two other sophomores — Alex Harding and Sean Hassall-Hoss — have also been key contributors early in the season.
Harding has 169 yards receiving and two touchdowns, while Hassall-Hoss has 135 yards offense and two receiving touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball, Van Meter leads the team with 37 tackles, followed by Hassall-Hoss with 36, while Carlson and fellow sophomore Graham Mcconnell each have 31.
Carlson also leads the team with four sacks, while Wyatt has a team-high two interceptions.
Saturday’s game will take place at Kezar Stadium at 6 p.m.
