HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS : SOUTHERN SECTION DIVISION XI : Payne, Giannini Lead Morro Bay

Greg Payne and Peter Giannini scored two touchdowns each for Morro Bay, which won its first CIF Southern Section championship with a 51-15 victory over Templeton on Friday night at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

The Pirates are 13-0.

"This is so sweet, after what happened last year," Payne said. Morro Bay lost to Boron in last year's finals.

The Pirates blew the game open in the second half when Payne caught a 27-yard touchdown pass from Will Clark and then returned an Eagle fumble 54 yards to put Morro Bay up, 31-0.
