The Sacred Heart Prep football team waited until its final offensive play of the game to pull out a thrilling 28-21 overtime victory over visiting King's Academy on Saturday, earning the program's first automatic berth into the Central Coast Section playoffs.
After junior Victor Ojeda scored on a short run in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 21, the playoff contest pitting two undefeated teams came down to a tiebreaker. Both teams had four plays to run from the 10-yard line.
The Gators (9-0) got the ball first and gained just two yards on their first three plays. Instead of going for a potential field goal, the Gators went for the end zone. Quarterback Ryan Sakowski was forced to scramble before lofting a pass into the end zone and in the direction of tight end Austin Koenig, who leaped, made the catch and fell into the end zone with the winning points.
The victory keeps the Gators in line for a perfect regular season -- they play Menlo School next weekend -- while the triumph also ended two years of frustrating one-point losses to King's Academy.
