Cliff-hanger touchdown can’t save San Leandro, 13-12
Encinal High School senior Jets linebacker Jezaiah Naigulevu had seen this before. Last year the San Leandro High School Pirates had put the ball in the hands of a senior leader who scored a game-winning touchdown, defeating the Jets, 18-13.
This year Naigulevu was ready. The linebacker stuffed Pirates running back Osaro Aihie on a game-winning, two-point conversion attempt that fell just short of the goal line, giving Encinal a 13-12 victory.
