With Sacred Heart Prep seniors Mason Randall and Andrew Daschbach possibly playing in the final home game of their high school football careers, it was no surprise the three-year starters once again played a major role in another Gators' victory.
Perhaps the only minor shock was that their contributions culminated in a record-breaking performance against a previously unbeaten Burlingame squad on Friday.
Daschbach caught 12 passes from Randall for three touchdowns and a school-record 251 receiving yards, as Sacred Heart Prep kept its PAL Bay Division championship dreams alive by defeating the visiting Panthers, 42-33, on Senior Day.
Menlo-Atherton 49, Terra Nova 28
The Bears took over sole possession of first place in the PAL Bay Division with its fifth straight victory, a surprisingly romp over the host Tigers in Pacifica.
Menlo-Atherton improved to 4-0 in league (5-3 overall) heading into next week's showdown at previously unbeaten Burlingame (3-1, 7-1). A victory will give the Bears the outright division title.
Menlo School 14, South SF 13
Fueled by a persistent defense, the Knights stopped the host Warriors in a PAL Ocean Division contest. Menlo (2-2, 6-2) made a huge stop when the Warriors tried for a conversion after a touchdown with 5.6 seconds to go. The Knights stopped the attempt, and held on for the win.
