All-star football game moves to Levi Stadium

The San Francisco 49ers won’t be the only ones playing football at Levi Stadium this summer. Expect to see some local high school players on the field, too.

The 41st annual Charlie Wedemeyer High School All-Star Football Game is scheduled 6 p.m. Aug. 1 at the 49ers’ new home in Santa Clara.


Lancers reign in the rain

St. Francis High’s Riley Quinn makes an interception in Friday’s game. Quinn and teammate Trillion Hebert, left, were part of a stingy defense that allowed just 27 points in the playoffs.

There probably aren’t many football teams that could overcome the loss of their quarterback nine minutes into a tightly contested championship game. But for St. Francis High – which relies on its potent running game and stout defense – it wasn’t much of a problem.

Scoring all their points after Kamalii Akina suffered a foot injury, the top-seeded Lancers beat Mitty 17-7 in Friday’s Central Coast Section Division II final at rainy Westmont in Campbell.

Along with doing what it does best – run and play defense – the St. Francis High football team showed off its aerial attack in Friday’s 42-14 blowout of visiting Leland in the Central Coast Section Division II semifinals.

The top-seeded Lancers (8-4) passed for a pair of touchdowns and ran for four more against the fifth-seeded Chargers (6-6).

St. Francis High proved that records are often deceiving in the Central Coast Section football playoffs.

The Lancers – who entered Friday’s CCS Division II opener with a 6-4 record – dismantled a 9-1 Mt. Pleasant team 55-6.

Jack Sweat didn’t forget. With last year’s lopsided loss to Woodside Priory still fresh in his mind, the senior powered Pinewood School’s eight-man football team to a 60-26 rout of its rival Friday afternoon.

He cited losing to Priory by the same margin a year ago as one of the factors fueling him in Friday’s home and season finale.
