Menlo 34, Carmel 29
Date of competition: Saturday, September 11, 2010
Jordan Williams put the finishing touch on an exceptional game by scoring the winning touchdown with 11 seconds left as Menlo earned a 34-29 nonleague football victory over Carmel at Woodside High on Saturday. The Knights snapped the Padres' 13-game winning streak and avenged a loss to Carmel in last season's Central Coast Section Division IV finals.
A 22-yard field goal with 3:46 left in the game gave the Padres (1-1) a 29-28 lead. Menlo then went on a 13-play drive. Quarterback Robert Wickers flipped the ball to Beau Nichols, who turned it into a 42-yard pass. Seven plays later, Wickers scooped a shovel pass to Nichols for a 9-yard gain to put the Knights on the Padres’ 11 with 21 seconds left. Moments later, Williams scampered up the middle for the winning score.
