The City College of San Francisco football team is going to need a significant amount of help if it’s going to repeat as national champions.
The Rams lost to College of San Mateo, 24-21, on Saturday. It was CCSF’s third loss of the season and now the team is relying on winning its last two games and Santa Rosa beating CSM to move into a three-way tie.
CCSF trailed at halftime, 14-7, and at the end of the third quarter, but scored two-straight touchdowns to take a 21-17 lead with just less than 10 minutes to play.
But San Mateo found the end zone from 36 yards out with 4 minutes remaining and that proved to be the winning score.
Rams running back Namane Modise led all rushers with 178 yards on 29 carries. CCSF outgained CSM, 392-213, in total offense.
City College now sits at 5-3 with two games left on the schedule. It will play its last home game of the season on Saturday, Sept. 5 against De Anza.
