Serra, Sacred Heart Prep selected for NorCal bowl games

A pair of San Mateo County teams qualified for CIF State Regional Football Bowl Games on Sunday.

Serra (San Mateo), fresh off beating Mitty (San Jose) 21-7 in the Central Coast Section Open Division championship, was selected to take on Del Oro (Loomis) in the NorCal Division I game, while Sacred Heart Prep (Atherton) takes on El Cerrito in the Division III game.

In the Division I game, Serra won’t have to travel too far as the game will be Friday at 7:30 p.m. at San Jose City College.

Serra (11-2) has allowed just 9.5 points per game in it last four games. In Del Oro (12-2), Serra will be taking on a team that has won 11 straight games and is averaging more than 34 points per game. Del Oro won the Sac-Joaquin Section Division II title.

The teams do share a common opponent in De La Salle (Concord), which will be playing in the NorCal Open Division bowl game this weekend. Serra dropped a close 21-14 game to De La Salle in its season opener, while Del Oro was hammered 41-3 by the national powerhouse.

Meanwhile, Sacred Heart Prep (12-1) is coming off a dominating run through the CCS Division IV playoffs. The Gators won all three of their playoff games by at least 23 points and capped it off with a 56-21 thumping of Pacific Grove in the title game.

El Cerrito (12-2) is riding a wave of momentum after beating Martin Catholic 54-38 in the North Coast Section Division III championship for the first NCS title in school history. The Division III game is Saturday at De Anza High School in Richmond at 7:30 p.m.

The winners of the regional bowl games will advance to state championships the following week.
