Corey Sails ran for 151 yards and a touchdown as Encinal came back to defeat San Leandro 25-21 for the Jets' first West Alameda County Conference—Foothill Division victory of the season.

Encinal (5-5, 1-3) bounced back from a 21-10 third-quarter deficit to claim the win.

"We were real hungry," Sails said. "We haven't been blowing teams out. Coaches told us all week to stay together and get it done."

It was largely because of the senior running back that the Jets were in position to win. Down by 11 in the third quarter, Sails broke a 67 yard run that led to an 11-yard score by Jordan Parker. Sails then ran in the two-point conversion to make it a 21-18 game.

The score held until late in the fourth quarter, when Sails reached paydirt from 58 yards out to give his team the final lead of the game.

Encinal quarterback Taivale Tautalatasi finished with 67 rushing yards, most of came on a 42-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. San Leandro (0-9, 0-4) scored on rushing touchdowns by Finau Mataafa and quarterback Stephen Johnson, who also threw a touchdown pass to Keone Foumai.
