Sacred Heart Prep erased a 12-point fourth-quarter deficit and rallied for a 31-28 victory over Menlo School in the annual Valparaiso Bowl on Friday night at Woodside High. The Gators improved to 9-1 after the nonleague win while the Knights dropped to 8-2. Both teams are expected to compete in the Central Coast Section Division IV playoffs, with SHP a likely No. 1 or 2 seed.

Sacred Heart Prep trailed by 28-16 after Menlo's Jack Heneghan hooked up with Max Parker for an 11-yard touchdown. The Gators made it a 28-21 game when Andrew Segre scored on a three-yard run. After Patrick Stinson recovered a fumble for SHP deep in Menlo territory, Ben Burr-Kirven finished off the short drive with a three-yard run for the winning points.

Heneghan threw for three touchdowns and ran in for a fourth to pace the Knights. Burr-Kirven scored on a seven-yard run and Derek Hunter returned an interception 35 yards to put SHP on top, 16-14, before the Knights pulled ahead behind Heneghan and appeared to be in good shape before the Gators rallied in the fourth quarter.
