1. The Westlake football team is the only undefeated team in the Marmonte League. After a 31-12 win over Oaks Christian on Friday night, Westlake improved to 4-0 overall, 3-0 in league. Four teams are tied for second place in the Marmonte League standings. Oaks Christian, St. Bonaventure, Moorpark and Thousand Oaks each have 2-1 records in league play. Oaks Christian and Moorpark suffered their first league losses of the season on Friday night. Moorpark lost on a 35-yard touchdown catch by St. Bonaventure’s Jeremy Sanchez in the fourth quarter. Thousand Oaks shut out Royal, 48-0. Receiver Richard Mullaney caught 10 passes for 190 yards and three touchdowns for Thousand Oaks.
2. Pretty much everybody knows that Trey Smith, the son of actor Will Smith, plays for the Oaks Christian football team. Oaks Christian has its share of star power with NHL Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky walking the sidelines when his son Trevor is playing and Jay Schroeder, former Raiders and Redskins quarterback, as an assistant offensive coach. What’s not so well known is that Westlake has its own Hollywood following. Kirstie Alley of “Cheers” fame was in the stands rooting for the Westlake football team on Friday night at Oaks Christian High School. She is a friend of quarterback Nick Isham’s family. After the game, after Isham did his television interviews and guided Westlake to a win over Oaks Christian, Alley was on field telling Isham that he made it look so easy. It took almost three quarters for Westlake to start pulling away, but, yes, in the end, Isham made easy work of Oaks Christian.
