Galileo Claims 2009 AAA Crown!

Galileo 14–21 35
Lin­coln 0–0 00

Quar­ter­back, Dylan Nel­son and wide receiver, Erik Wil­son, con­nected twice in the first half for a 14–0 lead. Galileo’s defense, led by line­back­ers, Paul Hill, Chuck Jones and Shaun Numera, held Lincoln’s top run­ning backs in check enroute to post­ing a shutout. Full­back, Pat Ale added two scores and elec­tri­fy­ing junior run­ning back, Quincy Nel­son added one.

Up 14–0, Galileo came out in the sec­ond half with an on-side kick recov­ered by Ale. The lions would cap­ti­tal­ize to go up 21–0 and essen­tially seal the game. The Mus­tangs threat­ened to score in the wan­ing sec­onds at Galileo’s 10 but junior cor­ner­back, William Kay picked off a pass in the end­zone to pre­serve the shutout.

Both Nel­sons and Ale topped the 100 yard rush­ing mark. This 16th cham­pi­onship breaks the pre­vi­ous record of 15 shared by Galileo and Polytechnic.
