Hampton sparks Mission win

Demaree Hampton scored two touchdowns and had 102 yards receiving as Mission beat Galileo 34-12 Friday in an Academic Athletic Association football game at School of the Arts.

The junior wide receiver caught a 20-yard scoring strike from Dwayne Davis late in the second quarter to give Mission (4-3, 2-3 AAA) a 14-6 halftime lead, then returned a punt 62 yards for a touchdown 3 minutes into the second half to spark the Bears to victory.

Mission forced a safety in the opening minutes and led 2-0 after the first quarter, but upset-minded Galileo (0-6, 0-5) took the lead when quarterback Javohn Cherry found Holland Gage for a 21-yard touchdown 5 seconds into the second quarter. The Bears responded when Anthony Bacani easily ran in from 4 yards out with 4 minutes left in the half and Mission’s defense then held the Lions scoreless in the third quarter and allowed only 43 yards rushing the entire game.

MOUNTAIN VIEW — Darius Bell threw for two touchdowns and ran for 101 yards as the Crusaders (5-3-1, 2-2-1) tied the Lancers (4-3-2, 2-2-1).

NONCONFERENCE

Sonoma Valley 21, Sacred Heart 17

Mike Mulas plowed in from 1 yard out with 1:36 left as the Dragons (7-1-1) rallied past the Irish (5-4) at Kezar Stadium.

Trailing 17-14 with 2:32 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Dragons marched 95 yards on seven plays to stun Sacred Heart. Matt Darnell (19 carries, 150 yards) ran four times for 60 yards on the game-clinching drive for Sonoma Valley.

Dasarte Yarnway (20 carries for 80 yards) scored on touchdown runs of 3 and 7 yards in the first half for Sacred Heart, which lead

14-7 at intermission. Mulas hauled in a

36-yard touchdown toss from Jake Powers with 10:24 left in the third quarter to tie it up 14-14.

Bart Sullivan’s 27-yard field goal for Sacred Heart, coming with 3:38 left in the third quarter, was the only other scoring in the second half until Sonoma Valley’s late rally.

“On that last drive, we missed too many tackles and too many defensive assignments,” said Sacred Heart coach John Lee, whose team concludes its season next week against Casa Grande of Petaluma. “We have one game left and if we win, we finish the season with a winning record. That’s what he have to keep focus of.”
