I feel that the author of this story is very biased and does not describe the game as some other residents of Palo Alto would. Give some credit to the Gunn's improving defense, they held Palo Alto in check even when their offense were nonexistent.

Paly dominated the game, start to finish. The only bright spot was the Gunn D forcing the Paly O to go three-and-out on the 1st series. It was downhill from there. Good article.

Thank you to both Paly and Gunn for giving a group of JLS boys a good time. These boys will be going to both Gunn and Paly within the next couple of years and it is good for them to be able to go to this game and feel safe and welcome by both schools.

Let's all remember that Paly and Gunn play in different leagues for a reason. Pitting two schools that are at different levels is not really the best idea for anyone but the rivalry must go on!

Paly has more emphasis on football and has been able to attract more players in the past few years from those other than their boundaries. Students are attracted to Paly's team due to their success. However, this game means nothing for either school's league play record. Yes, Paly won in a big way so that proves that a team that is in a higher division can beat a team that is in a lower division. Go Paly!

Who is the Athletic Director at Gunn? How long has he/she been there? And when can we fire them?

Paly scored 43 points... I don't think you could say that Gunn "held Paly in check."

Don't miss out on the discussion!
