Galileo Flag Football Champs

The AAA/SF Section Girls Flag Football final took place April 21 with Galileo downing Lincoln 12-6 in a defensive battle. The Mustangs scored first in the second quarter on a touchdown pass from Emily Zehm to Angelica Romero. The Lions tied the game on a 20+ yard run by Yuki Huang. The first half ended deadlocked 6-6, and neither team could push across a score in the third quarter. Early in the fourth Galileo QB Dana Liu faked a hand-off and scampered down the sideline for the go-ahead touchdown. Lincoln began a long drive, however they were stopped on fourth down inside Lion territory with under a minute to go. The Mustang “D” held Galileo on downs forcing a punt that sailed out of bounds on the Galileo 30 yard line with three seconds remaining. A final running play by Lincoln’s QB Emily Zehm came up short, and the Lions celebrated a second title in three years! Congratulations to both squads on a very exciting championship game and overall successful seasons!
