Sylmar 57, San Fernando 27
C.J. Gable rushed for 234 yards and two touchdowns in 17 carries and also had a 75-yard touchdown reception as the visiting Spartans broke open a tight game with a second-quarter scoring surge and clinched a share of the Valley Mission League title.
It is the 16th consecutive title for Sylmar (8-2, 4-1) and the first for Coach London Woodfin, who is in his first year after taking over for retired veteran coach Jeff Engilman. A loss Friday would have ended the streak.
"It's a big relief," Woodfin said. "I didn't want to be the one that ended that streak. Not only that, but there were playoff implications and bragging rights on the line."
Sylmar took advantage of three second-quarter turnovers by San Fernando (6-4, 4-1) and also blocked a punt as the Spartans extended their lead from 14-7 with just over seven minutes left in the first half to 36-7 by halftime.
The Sylmar defense also adjusted to San Fernando running back Rafael Reynolds, who had 121 yards in his first six carries but only 19 yards in his next 18 carries. He added an 85-yard scoring run late in the game.
Sylmar quarterback John Austin passed for touchdowns of 75 and 64 yards and also ran for two scores. Alex Carreon had a 35-yard interception return for a touchdown, part of the 22-point outburst over the final 6:45 of the first half.
