Full slate of Peninsula prep football matchups

Friday’s games
Galileo at Mills, 3:30 p.m.
The Lions, last year’s AAA champs, look to pick up where they left off last season when they head south to take on the Vikings, who finished a disappointing 2-7-1 in 2009.

Menlo at Hillsdale, 7 p.m.
Hillsdale will be looking to atone for last year’s 41-14 blowout loss at the hands of Menlo.

Sacred Heart Cathedral at Terra Nova, 7 p.m.
The Tigers reached the CCS Division III championship game last season, while Sacred Heart struggled to a 2-8 year in the rugged WCAL.

Sequoia at Branham, 7 p.m.
The Cherokees turned in an impressive 7-3 season last year and look to continue that tonight against the Bruins in San Jose.

Sacramento at Woodside, 7 p.m.
The Tigers have the opportunity to put last year’s dreadful 1-9 season in the past with a season-opening victory against the Dragons. Woodside has dropped down from the PAL Bay Division to the PAL Ocean Division this year.

Carlmont at Santa Cruz, 7 p.m.
Coach Jason Selli is back for a second go-around with the Scots and is wasting no time in installing an entire new system. The Scots are in the PAL Lake Division this year after spending 2009 in the PAL Ocean.

South San Francisco at Santa Clara, 7:30 p.m.
The Warriors have a good opportunity to build up their nonleague ledger with a victory over a Bruins team that managed just one victory in 2009.

Half Moon Bay vs. Homestead at Cupertino HS, 7:30 p.m.
The Cougars routed the Mustangs in last year’s opener en route to a solid 6-4 season.
