Watch them Shine!

Friday night lights have never been brighter than in 2021, with sport teams returning to the fields and spectators taking to the stands. Locally, the Monte Vista High School Mustangs football team has not disappointed. 

With a long record of success and sporting a new coach, the Mustangs are off to a strong start this past September. Right now and through October and November, the Mustangs invite you to come to a game and cheer on your favorite local team. 

On October 1, the Mustangs will take on Livermore High at home. Then, on October 15, Monte Vista will travel to Amador Valley to seek a big win while away. Back on Mustang turf on October 22, the team will take on California/San Ramon. On October 29, the team will travel to Clayton Valley Charter to seek a victory. Finally, on November 11, the Mustangs will finish their regular season play at San Ramon Valley High School. 

All games are at 7PM, when the true spectacle of Friday Night Lights will brighten up the field. Be sure to find your seats in the bleacher and cheer on your favorite team. Go Mustangs!
