St. Francis linebacker Joshua Pakola lunges at Serra quarterback Luke Bottari in Saturday’s CCS Open Division II final..
Saturday’s Central Coast Section Open Division II football final came down to bold moves – Serra High made them throughout the game and St. Francis High’s daring attempt at the end came up just short.
After scoring a touchdown on Reed Vettel’s 19-yard pass to Evan Williams with 1:26 left, the Lancers opted for the two-point conversion to pull ahead of the Padres rather than kick the extra point to tie them. Vettel, rolling right with pressure coming, threw a pass to fullback Opeti Fangupo that fell incomplete.
