Football: SHP moves back into title contention in PAL Bay Division

 

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.

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.

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.
