Young Lions Win 1st Game as Playoffs Dim for Varsity

Galileo Stuns Bal­boa in Final 5-minutes

Octo­ber 27, 2011
Galileo FS 06–20 26
Bal­boa FS 16–08 24

In a col­lec­tive effort, Yanek Hakobyan shined bright­est with his foot and his hands. Hakobyan nailed 2 first-half field goals and hauled in the go-ahead touch­down from quar­ter­back, Kedraun Buck­ner. Down 19–24 with 2 min­utes left in the game, nose tackle, Jose Gato stripped the run­ner and began run­ning the wrong way before his team­mates got his atten­tion. Gato helped the Lions to a first down at the 50 yard­line. Hakobyan caught a deep ball and then drew a pass­ing inter­fer­ence flag a few plays later in the end­zone. Galileo took a few shots at the end­zone before Hakobyan’s game-winner with 18 sec­onds left on the clock. It’s been a tough and rough sea­son but it goes to show that “hard­work does pay off”.

In a must-win game, Galileo found the wrong time to dis­play poor tack­ling as Bal­boa ran their way to their sec­ond league win while drop­ping the Lions to 1–4. With 2 games remain­ing, Galileo will attempt to snap the los­ing skid to sal­vage a sea­son that started well with a 3–1 record before the free-fall after home­com­ing.
