    Eagles are on a roll

    Football Team has won four straight games

    The Laney College football team is riding a four-game wining streak and leads the National Valley Conference with a 3–0 record with two games remaining.
    But nothing has been decided yet.
    The Eagles entertain the San Joaquin Delta Mustangs from Stockton on Friday, Nov. 7, in their final home game of the season. Game time is 7 p.m.
    It is also Sophomore Night, where the team honors its departing players in a pre-game ceremony.
    Laney (5–3, 3–0) is coming off two straight road victories. The Eagles downed a tough Modesto Junior College team 28–26 on Oct. 25, and then walloped College of the Sequoias 63–7 on Nov. 1 in Visalia.
    After the game against Delta, Laney travels to Hayward on Saturday, Nov. 12, for a showdown game against Chabot College (4–4, 2–1). The Eagles have not defeated the Gladiators in three years, but both games have been close.
    If the Eagles can win the next two games, they will be conference champions and will be automatically entered into the four-team Northern California playoffs, which start the end of November.
    The game against the COS Giants was pretty much over after the first quarter when Laney jumped off to a 27–0 lead.
    The Eagles took the opening kickoff and drove 66 yards with Keith Anthony scoring on a 3-yard run. After Eagles defensive back Demareyeh Lane intercepted a pass and returned it 16 yards to the Sequoias 5, quarterback Kurt Palandech threw a 5-yard scoring pass to Ryan Gordon.
    Laney then blocked a punt and Yusef Sterling-Lowe returned it 62 yards for another touchdown. The Eagles’ final score in the first period came when Palandech threw a 30-yard pass to Matthew Butler for a 27–0 lead.
    The Eagles scored two more times in the second quarter to take a 40–7 lead. Anthony scored on a 1-yard run and Palandech threw a 2-yard scoring pass to Keanu Kalawaia.
    Laney rushed for a season-high 319 yards on 61 carries. Anthony had 93 yards on 11 carries.
    Laney 29, Modesto Junior College 28: Francisco Mendoza’s 29-yard field goal with 3:38 left in the game was the difference.
