SAN LEANDRO -- O'Brien Younger ran for 111 yards in the fourth quarter to help the Pirates celebrate the reopening of Burrell Field with a victory of the Vikings.

Younger scored from 24 yards out that gave San Leandro a 32-21 lead with 7:04 remaining. Valley Christian quarterback Theman Taylor III answered with a 16-yard touchdown to pull the Vikings within three before Younger broke the game open.

Facing a third-and-10 from their own 12, Younger took the handoff and scampered 88 yards down the sideline to the end zone with 2:09 left. He finished with 124 yards on just five carries.

Backup quarterback Milton Costa gave the Pirates a spark after taking over for an injured Stephen Johnson, throwing for 61 yards after halftime while leading the Pirates three straight scoring drives. Johnson struggled for most of the first half but used his speed to give San Leandro an 18-14 halftime lead. He scored on an 86-yard kick return and later added a 46-yard keeper for another score before hitting Keone Foumai on a 13-yard touchdown on the last play of the first half.

Valley Christian running back Vince Volpatti had a huge game, finishing with 169 yards and scored on touchdown runs of 65 and 39 yards. Taylor III threw for just 54 yards but added 78 yards on the ground for the Vikings.
