Palo Alto played flat in the first half but came out strong in the second half by good accuracy by Paly QB Keller Chryst. Chryst was playing in his first CCS playoff game at Paly. Chryst really showed strong poise in the second half after having a hard time with the slippery ball.
Paly defense stepped up when it had to with big stops and Leland QB just couldn't get the ball to his receivers all night.
