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.

“That’s exactly what we’ve been looking forward to having,” top singles player Alena Pruett said. “It’s nice to finally get that one.”

The Mountain View High boys water polo team trailed rival Los Altos early, but the Spartans rallied for a 10-9 win Saturday in the league tournament final.

Top-seeded Mountain View, which went undefeated in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division, overcame a three-goal hole in the first quarter. The host Spartans cut the deficit to 4-2 by quarter’s end and scored four unanswered goals in the second quarter to pull ahead by halftime.

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.
