One last game under the lights for Salesian seniors
on November 21, 2009
Salesian High seniors Eddie Perales and Anthony Olivero talk about what they’ll remember most about playing high school football. The photos are from the team’s final regular-season game of the year, a 43-0 home win over California School for the Deaf.
Salesian’s season isn’t over yet. The Pride, champions of the Bay Football League, begins what it hopes to be a long North Coast Section playoff run on Saturday, Nov. 21. Salesian (9-1), the No. 3 seed in Division IV, faces No. 14 Willits (3-6) at Salesian at 1 p.m.
Perales, Olivero and the 18 other Salesian seniors on the team could have as many as four games left in their prep careers, if they make it all the way to the championship game, which will either be Friday, Dec. 11 or Saturday, Dec. 12 at a yet-to-be determined location.
Update: Salesian beat Willits 45-0 on Saturday to advance to the NCS D-IV quarterfinals. Salesian plays Vallejo’s St. Patrick-St. Vincent, which placed third in the Bay Shore Athletic League, at 1 p.m. Saturday at home. The No. 6 Bruins (8-3) beat No. 11 Clear Lake 65-22 on Saturday.
