Lions Win Season-Opener After Squandering Big Lead
Galileo V 14–06 20
San Lorenzo V 03–14 17
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.
Galileo’s varsity and frosh soph football teams travelled to Novato on September 20th for a 4-team scrimmage with host Novato, Windsor, and Analy.

GAME WRAPUP: Hasson’s 2 INT and TD Highlight Purple Win
PURPLE 00–06 06
ORANGE 00–00 00
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.
