Serra-San Mateo 49, Encinal 13: Two weeks after letting an upset of nationally-ranked De La Salle slip through their fingers, the visiting Padres punished the Jets for their first win.

The Jets (2-1) amassed just 66 yards of offense, 30 of which came on a fourth-quarter touchdown pass from Tiavale Tautalatasi to Kealii Pedro.

American 28, San Lorenzo 21, OT: The visiting Eagles' Drew Lyell took a swing pass from Ryan Barker and raced into the end zone for a 30-yard touchdown in overtime. American (3-1) started the overtime series on the San Lorenzo 10, but penalties drove it back to the 30.

The game ended when American's Deangelo Cox leaped to grab an interception in the end zone.

San Lorenzo (2-2) bolted out to the lead early, as the Rebels' Troy Goodwin bolted 35 yards into the end zone on the second offensive play of the game. Goodwin finished with a team-high 171 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

The Rebels scored again almost four minutes later on a 16-yard run by Raymon Moore. San Lorenzo held a 14-6 first-quarter lead and a 21-6 halftime advantage.

But the Eagles, behind sophomore running back Jared Luty, came back. Luty ran for 100 of his game-high 177 yards after the second quarter, and scored touchdowns in the first and third quarters. American tied the score 21-21 on a 1-yard run by Barker and a point-after-touchdown kick by Steven Armenta.

Northgate 31, Las Lomas 17: Eric Haynes ran for 127 yards and three touchdowns, the last breaking a 17-17 tie on fourth down with 4:41 left in the final quarter as the host Broncos won for the fourth straight time.

Haynes scored standing on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line, as Northgate (4-0) secured its second straight win in the annual Battle of the Creek rivalry. Matt Huang's 34-yard kickoff return, and a 15-yard penalty on Las Lomas (2-2) for unsportsmanlike conduct at the end of the play set up Northgate at the Knights' 36 on the tiebreaking drive.

Nick Mastrelli's 10-yard touchdown run with 1:37 left sealed it for the Broncos. Las Lomas quarterback Ben Wood completed four passes and drove the Knights to the Northgate 9 with under 1 minute left but lost a fumble on Las Lomas' final offensive play.

Wood passed for 220 yards, and nine of his 11 completions went to Johnny Marinchak. Wood and Marinchak teamed up for a 63-yard scoring completion in the second quarter to put Las Lomas ahead 14-3, with 10:06 left in the first half.

Zack Fulks ran for 51 yards on the Knights' first five offensive plays, capping his one-man drive with a 1-yard scoring plunge to give Las Lomas a 7-0 lead. But he ran just six times for 25 yards the rest of the way, and Northgate outscored Las Lomas 28-3 over the game's final 34 minutes.

Freedom 27, San Leandro 21: Freedom's Joe Mixon ran for 210 yards and three touchdowns — all in the first half — in this nonleague contest at Burrell Field. But it was a 16-yard touchdown pass from Joe Sweeney to James Allen with 9:57 left in the game that ultimately lifted the visiting Falcons to victory.

Mixon broke free for a 69-yard touchdown run on the game's first official play from scrimmage. He added touchdown runs of 9 yards later in the first quarter and 76 yards in the second. The senior was shaken up on the final play of the half and did not play after halftime.

San Leandro (1-3) held its own for most of the contest. Trailing 13-0, Pirates quarterback Stephen Johnson ran 57 yards for his team's first touchdown and then returned a punt 82 yards for a 14-13 lead after one quarter.

Mixon's 76-yard run put the Falcons (1-3) back on top, 19-14. But a 37-yard swing pass from Johnson to Finau Mata'afa gave San Leandro a 21-19 lead at the half.

Running back Lavance Warren ran for 169 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown for McClymond's first score as the Warriors (3-1) finished with 270 yards on the ground. Louis White got past the Vikings (2-2) defense for a 79-yard touchdown reception from Emoni Fountain to give the Warriors a 13-0 lead in the first quarter.

A Jermaine McCann Caluya 16-yard touchdown reception and a Daishawn Shannon 1-yard score gave McClymonds a commanding 25-7 lead late in the opening half.

Maria Carrillo-Santa Rosa 42, Alhambra 21: Maria Carrillo scored two second-half rushing touchdowns and added a third on a 26-yard interception return to grind out a road win over Alhambra (1-2-1).

Clayton Pool threw for 155 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, but he used his legs to notch the two Puma second half offensive scores, both 1-yard touchdown dives.

On defense, defensive back Evan Bluestone made the play that thwarted any chance of an Alhambra comeback. Leading 29-15 with 2:32 left in the third quarter, Bluestone snatched the throw of Bulldogs quarterback before it reached the receiver and took it the other way.

Christopher Young led Alhambra with 86 yards rushing and a touchdown, while teammate James Gonsalves added a score.

Concord 36, Bethel-Vallejo 33: Quarterback Mitch Daniels routed the host Jaguars (1-2) in a nonleague win for the Minutemen. The Jaguars seemingly had the game in hand with a 3 minutes left and a 3 point lead, but Malichai Dawson fumbled at the Concord 23.

The opening was just enough for Concord (2-1) and Daniels, who had thrown three touchdown passes heading into the final drive.

Daniels had the Minutemen driving at the Bethel 30-yard line when he hit Devon Brown on a screen pass that went 28 yards. Brown finished off the drive with a 2-yard touchdown run with a minute left that ended up being the winner.
