Palo Alto Knights advance three teams to next round

 

The Palo Alto Knights qualified their Cadet and Pee Wee youth football teams to the NorCal Championships with playoff wins last Sunday. The Knights' Unlimited 8th Grade team, meanwhile, has advanced to the American Youth Football League Northwest Regional Championship following a 40-0 victory over San Leandro Jr. Rebels.

The Cadets upset the No. 2-seeded and host Oak Grove West team with a 14-6 victory and will play Oak Grove South for the NorCal championship at Oak Grove High School on Sunday at 2 p.m.

The Knights' Pee Wee team defeated the Oakland Dynamites, 32-0, at Palo Alto High on Sunday to advance the NorCal title game and a rematch with Oak Grove South, which the Knights defeated in 2010 to advance to the AYF National Championships.

The Knights' Pee Wee's will kickoff at 4 p.m., following the Cadets' game at Oak Grove High.

The Knights' Unlimited weight 8th grade team will carry an 8-0 record to the AYF Regional Championship the following weekend, with the winner advancing to the AYF National Championship in Orlando, Fla.

This is the first year the Knights have offered an Unlimited weight team for 8th graders and they are out to win a national title. Palo Alto has allowed only four touchdowns in eight games this year.
