In a showdown between two of the top running teams in the PAL Bay Division, Sacred Heart Prep won a footrace with King’s Academy and pulled off a 42-17 victory in Sunnyvale on Friday night. The somewhat surprising triumph allowed the Gators (2-1, 5-2) to pull into a tie for second place with the Knights (2-1, 5-2).

SHP senior running backs Matt Walter and Victor Ojeda had too much speed for King’s Academy as the two combined for 403 yards and six scores. Walter had his second-best outing of the season in his team’s most important game (thus far) by scoring on runs of 30, 12, 30 and 18 yards. He finished with 22 carries and 220 yards. Ojeda added touchdown runs of 60 and five yards, finishing with 183 yards on just 12 hauls.

The Sacred Heart Prep defense turned in a great job of limiting Stanford-bound King's Academy junior Amir Carlisle to a single touchdown, on a 60-yard run.
