St. Francis High receiver Evan Williams scores the first touchdown in the Lancers’ 28-7 victory over Mitty Friday night. St. Francis improved to 6-0 in the West Catholic Athletic League and 8-1 overall.

While the St. Francis High football team’s offense made the highlight-reel plays Friday night, the defense quietly did what it’s done throughout league – dominate.

The host Lancers mauled Mitty 28-7, and that’s the most points they’ve allowed in a West Catholic Athletic League game this year.

Homecoming heartbreak for Eagles

Los Altos High’s Dale Simms scores a touchdown in Friday night’s homecoming gamea against Gunn.

The Los Altos High football team has suffered some bitter defeats this season – shut out at Santa Clara and edged by rival Mountain View in overtime – but Friday’s loss to Gunn probably stings most.

The undermanned Titans spoiled the Eagles’ homecoming by scoring a touchdown with a second left, then running in the two-point conversion to win 14-13 Friday night at Foothill College.

Spartans stun Santa Clara; Lancers blast Bellarmine

The Mountain View High football team climbed to the top of the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League El Camino Division by beating host Santa Clara 17-10 Friday night.

The Spartans, tied with the Bruins at halftime, outscored them 10-0 in the third quarter and allowed just a field goal in the fourth.

The most-anticipated football game of the season for rival high schools Los Altos and Mountain View has rarely lived up to the hype – 14 of the last 20 meetings were decided by double digits – but Friday night’s contest sure did.

Mountain View edged Los Altos 23-20 in overtime at Foothill College, where the sizable crowd witnessed a game-turning 95-yard pick-six, a breakout performance by a frosh-soph call-up, a herculean effort by the smallest player and a long field-goal attempt that nearly extended overtime.
