ANOTHER CCS FINAL . . . The Sacred Heart Prep football team will play in its second Central Coast Section championship gamed in three years when the No. 2-seeded Gators (10-2) take on No. 1 Carmel (11-1) in the Division IV finals on Saturday at Westmont High at 3 p.m. Carmel's only loss this season came at the hands of Menlo School (34-29), a team the Gators defeated, 28-14, last weekend in the semifinals. The championship game will be a battle of offensive powers, with Carmel averaging 47.3 points a game and SHP averaging 34.1. Carmel won the division title last season, over Menlo, while the Gators lost in the Small School Division finale in 2008 to Sacred Heart Cathedral. Pedro Robinson of SHP was a sophomore that year and played sparingly. This season he has been a big part of a rushing attack that is averaging 298.5 yards per game. Last Saturday against Menlo, Robinson rushed for 177 yards and scored twice, in addition to playing on defense. SHP senior Colin Terndrup added 156 rushing yards as the Gators gained 394 on the ground. Sacred Heart Prep will need to slow down Carmel quarterback Devin Pearson, who is throwing for 206 yards per game and averaging 279.6 yards of offense per outing.
