The Sacred Heart Prep Gators knocked off the Menlo Knights in the sixth annual Valparaiso Bowl, 28-20, on Friday night in a nonleague football game at Woodside High.
The Gators (9-0-1) took the lead early and never relinquished it. After leading 21-0 at halftime, Sacred Heart held on for the win. Ryan Sakowski led Sacred Heart offensively with two passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown.
Sakowski was able to get Sacred Heart its early lead, scoring all three of the Gators' first half touchdowns. Victor Ojeda scored the deciding touchdown for Sacred Heart with a 13-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
For Menlo (6-4), which suffered its fourth straight loss, Beau Nichols scored twice on touchdown runs of one and five yards. Quarterback Danny Diekroeger also hooked up with Chris Ryan for a 26-yard touchdown.
With the touchdown from Diekroeger to Ryan, the Knights drew within eight points of the Gators. However, SHP's Chris Gaertner recovered Charles LeMoullac's onside kick to ensure the victory for Sacred Heart, which now can prepare for the CCS Small School Division playoffs along with the Knights. In fact, the two teams could meet again in the postseason.
