FREMONT -- Carlos Lopez had an efficient day on both sides of the ball as the host California School for the Deaf football team set a school record for wins in a season with a 26-6 victory over No. 7 Tomales on Saturday in the first round of the North Coast Section Division V playoffs.

No. 2 California School for the Deaf (10-1) previously had nine wins in a season in 2002 and 2009.

Lopez threw for 170 yards and four touchdowns and came up huge on defense as well. He picked off Braves (6-5) quarterback Jacob Brady twice and also recovered a fumble that set up the Eagles first score late in the first quarter.

Johnny Morales hauled in a 29-yard touchdown with 24 seconds left from Lopez in the first for a 6-0 CSD advantage. Lopez then hit Dakota Daniels for a 13-yard score before hooking up with Brian Freeman for a 48-yard touchdown with 28 seconds left in the half as the Eagles took a 20-0 lead.

"Our offense did pretty well, but we could've played a little better," Lopez signed. "Defensively we did a great job studying their offense and reacting to it."

Freeman led the Eagles with 112 yards on the ground on 21 carries. Daniels caught three passes for 71 yards and two scores.

The Eagles will host No. 3 St. Vincent in the semifinals next Saturday at 1 p.m.
