The Bears are heading to a state football bowl game

 

Jordan Mims and Aajon Johnson were at it again, running wild behind an offensive line that created opportunity after opportunity. At the end of the night, Menlo-Atherton put together a running attack that scored from just about everywhere on the field.

As a result, the Bears (12-2) are going to a state football bowl game next Saturday at 6 p.m. M-A beat visiting Manteca, 49-21, Friday night to claim the Northern California Division 3-AA title and will meet Paraclete-Lancaster at a site to be determined.

The Spirits (11-4) advanced with a 34-18 win over Mater Dei Christian (12-2) on Friday night at Antelope Valley College.

Mims rushed for 267 yards and scored four touchdowns. Johnson added scoring runs of 55 and 18 yards and Stavro Papadakis also scored on a 25-yard run.

Mims scored on runs of 13, 31, 72 and 3 yards. Johnson also caught a pass from brother Aaron Johnson to complete a two-point conversation.

The Bears' defense also forced three turnovers, including a fumble recovery that led to a touchdown. Spencer Corona intercepted a pass in the end zone to prevent a score late in the first half and Tate Tussing picked off a pass in the fourth quarter that sealed it.
