2016 Game 1: SAN LORENZO

Lions Win Season-Opener After Squan­der­ing Big Lead

Galileo V 14–06 20
San Lorenzo V 03–14 17

img_5543 Senior wide-out, Dono­van Has­son made a few acro­batic catches along with his first TD recep­tion of the sea­son to pace Galileo in a game that almost got away. Up 14–0, Galileo allowed San Lorenzo a short field which resulted in a field goal in the wan­ing sec­onds of the first half. In the sec­ond half, a botched snap over the head of senior punter, Nick Bus­tos, put San Lorenzo in the red zone. A few plays later, San Lorenzo scored on a touch­down recep­tion. Galileo did man­age another score but once again the Lions con­tin­ued to show their gen­eros­ity by throw­ing an ill-advised pass across the field that was picked off and returned to their 15. Three plays later, it was a brand new ball game when Galileo allowed another touch­down over the top of their pass coverage-the Rebels had pulled within 3 in a 20–17 game.


Even in the last week of the sea­son, the Var­sity Lions con­tin­ued to strug­gle with off-the-field issues. Con­tin­u­ing the trend of injuries and/or sus­pen­sions, three starters were sus­pended for this game. The good news was the return of senior line­man, Jason Yu who had a knee issue all sea­son but per­se­vered to get healthy enough to play this one game in his final season.
