Congratulations are due to our undefeated Encinal Jets varsity football team, ‘coz they are headed to the North Coast Section Division III championship!

The team beat Marin Catholic 19-13 in a semifinal game Friday night, with Encinal senior Xavier Milton putting the team ahead with a 55-yard touchdown reception and then sealing the deal with a 94-yard punt return, per this article in the Oakland Tribune. Per the Trib:

“My coaches told me to step up,” said Milton, who also had an interception to kill a Marin drive late in the first half. “I wanted to do it for my team. Step up for my teammates — my brothers.”

Encinal, which is 12-0, will face either #2 team Miramonte or #3 team Novato at the championship game at 7 p.m. Saturday, December 13 at Dublin High.
