Pop Warner football: Last-second loss derails VikingsVictims of a heartbreaking last-second 12-6 loss on Saturday, Dec. 3, the Menlo-Atherton Vikings Pee Wee squad prepared to take on the Mount Hope, Rhode Island, Cowboys for consolation honors on Tuesday, Dec. 6, in the Pop Warner National Football Championships in Orlando, Florida.
The Vikings battled from behind Saturday in a Division II classic against the powerful Raiders from College Station, Texas, and tied the game 6-6 with 2:23 remaining on a short pass from Blake Stenstrom to Jack Devine.
But on a grinding march from midfield, the Raiders scored on a questionable touchdown pass with 0:06 on the clock as the receiver squeezed near the corner of the end zone.
In another contest involving a local team, the Redwood City 49ers fell to the Stanley Blue Devils (NC) 22-0 in the first round of Division II Junior Pee Wee competition at the 55th annual Pop Warner Super Bowl at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
