A rundown of local high school football championships

AAA Championship: It’s not on Thanksgiving, but the AAA Championship has the potential to be one of the best yet. If it’s anything like the regular-season meeting between Mission and Galileo, fans who flock to Kezar Stadium for Saturday’s 1 p.m. contest will be in for a great one. Mission erased three first-half deficits en route to a 40-36 win when the teams met on Oct. 20.

CCS Open Division II Championship: Serra and St. Francis are set for their second meeting of the season and fourth in the past two years. The Lancers will take on the top-seeded Padres Saturday night at 7 p.m. at San Jose’s Independence High School.

CCS Open Division III Championship: It’s a Skull Game rematch between Coastside rivals Half Moon Bay and Terra Nova. While Half Moon Bay won the first meeting in blowout fashion, Terra Nova is far healthier than it was three weeks ago, and should make it a thriller. The seventh-seeded Tigers advanced to the championship by knocking off Aptos and Palma. They won’t have to travel so far on Saturday, with kickoff set for 7 p.m. at Sequoia.

CCS Division V Championship: Menlo will try to spoil Gilroy’s perfect season to claim its first section title in school history. Even with star running back Aidan Israelski out with a season-ending injury, Menlo advanced to the finals with a late comeback over Scotts Valley. Friday’s championship game is set for 7 p.m. at Westmont High School in Campbell.
