San Leandro Season Ends With Loss To Monte Vista

The third seeded Pirates couldn't keep up with the sixth seeded Mustangs in the second half

San Leandro High's season came to a sudden end Saturday night with a 28-12 loss to Monte Vista High in a NCS Division I quarterfinal game played at Chabot College.

The sixth seeded Mustangs held the lead most of the game over the third seeded Pirates.

Monte Vista led 7-6 at half. They scored two third quarter touchdowns to widen their margin to 21-6.

However, San Leandro crossed the goal line in the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 21-12 before Monte Vista put the game away with a touchdown with less than a minute to play.

Monte Vista is now 8-4. They will meet their cross-town rival, San Ramon Valley High, next weekend. The Mustangs defeated the Wolves, 34-33, in the final regular season game two weeks ago.

San Leandro finishes the season with a 6-5 record. The Pirates began the season by losing three of their first four games.

However, they reeled off five straight wins before losing to Bishop O'Dowd, 48-26, in a league championship battle two weeks ago.

San Leandro was given a number three seed in the Division I tournament and had a bye last week before matching up with Monte Vista.
