The team has two home matches next week - on Tuesday, 10/3 versus Prospect and Thursday 10/5 versus Independence. 

Leigh's football team started it's year 4-0, with a league win over Santa Teresa last week. All of the wins have come through comebacks by Leigh in the 4th quarter. Congratulations to the team for never giving up! The JV team is off to a 2-2 start, with both losses very close games. Both teams have their second league game at Pioneer this week. Highlights from Leigh's game against Santa Teresa are included in the Mercury News' roundup of last week's Mount Hamilton football action. There is an article in the San Jose Mercury News about Leigh Football's win over Saratoga on 9/15, and an article posted on Prep2Prep  about Leigh Football's win against Woodside on 9/8.
