Los Altos shuts out Lynbrook 30-0; St. Francis falls to Valley Christian

The Los Altos High football team kept its faint playoff hopes alive by blanking Lynbrook 30-0 Friday night.

The visiting Eagles evened their record at 2-2 in the SCVAL El Camino Division and improved to 7-2 overall.

After a scoreless first quarter, Los Altos scored two touchdowns in the second, added a field goal in the third and tallied two more TDs in the fourth.

Receiver Victor Ruiz scored every touchdown, catching passes of 62, 21, 20 and 55 yards from Lambie Lanman. Matt Schroner made three extra points and booted a 33-yard field goal.

Ruiz totaled 208 yards on eight receptions, while Lanman completed 13 of 20 passes for 316 yards. Running back Sean Lanoza rushed for 101 yards on 17 carries.

Los Altos is scheduled to close the regular season 1:30 p.m. Saturday at home against Cupertino.

VC runs over St. Francis

St. Francis struggled to move the ball or stop the run in Friday’s 21-14 loss at Valley Christian.

The Lancers mustered only 106 yards of offense (57 rushing, 49 passing), while the Warriors piled up 296 yards on the ground.

Yet St. Francis trailed just 7-0 midway through the fourth quarter. Valley Christian then added a 31-yard touchdown run from Kirk Johnson (254 yards rushing).

The Lancers answered with a 9-yard scoring pass from Will Fischer-Colbrie to halfback Landon Baty with 2:35 to play, but the Warriors tallied another TD just 23 seconds later.

Baty returned the ensuing kickoff 94 yards for a score and St. Francis recovered the onside kick, but Valley Christian’s defense held strong.

The Lancers dropped to 3-3 in the West Catholic Athletic League and 6-3 overall.

Spartans stymied again

Mountain View scored its first touchdown in three weeks, but it wasn’t nearly enough to beat Milpitas, which won 55-7 Friday.

The visiting Spartans slumped to 1-5 in the SCVAL De Anza Division and 1-8 overall.
