Gunn High School’s football team ended its quick tour of the Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division Saturday with a 33-0 loss to San Mateo. It was the second straight lopsided loss for the Titans, who last week fell to Carlmont, 60-28. Fumbles again haunted Gunn (0-3) and kept it from sustaining any drives. The Titans, committed six turnovers, three on fumbles and three on interceptions. San Mateo scored touchdowns on two of the turnovers, the first a 40-yard interception return in the second quarter and the second in the third quarter when a San Mateo lineman ripped the ball from a Gunn running back and rumbled 41 yards for a touchdown. “Turnovers killed us again,” said Gunn coach Matt McGinn. “That’s been the story every game this season. We’ve had problems running and dropping the ball. We just have to go back to basics in practice. We can be effective in what we do if we can execute.” With Paly looming next on the schedule after a bye week, Gunn’s challenge is much stiffer than its first three opponents. Against San Mateo, the offense could not sustain any sort of a drive until the fourth quarter. The offense had plenty of opportunity. San Mateo committed five turnovers of its own, two on interceptions by Jon Zeglin. But San Mateo’s defense limited Gunn to 84 yards of total offense -– an average of less than two yards per play. Gunn had just five first downs and three of those came in the fourth quarter. Eleven of Gunn’s 40 rushing attempts were stopped for a loss. The Titans’ longest pass was for five yards. Gunn didn’t cross the 50 yard line until the fourth quarter and the deepest it went was to the 43-yard line. Nikko Jackson ran for 85 yards on 16 carries. The next leading rusher had 12 yards. Gunn used three quarterbacks: Danny Luskin, Blake Johnson and Yash Patel, but San Mateo’s rush didn’t allow any of them time. The trio was a collective three of 15 for nine yards. San Mateo gained 257 yards of offense, 165 on the ground and 92 through the air.
