NorCal Champs - San Mateo

College of San Mateo won its first NorCal Conference football championship Saturday and will host the Valley Conference champion in the Bulldog Bowl next Saturday afternoon at 1 for the overall Northern California Community College title and the right to host the state championship game on Dec. 12.

Matt Pelesasa threw three touchdown passes and David Aknin scored three times as No. 2 state-ranked CSM defeated visiting Diablo Valley, 49-28. Defending state and national champion Butte beat Foothill, 25-23, in Los Altos Hills to knock the Owls out of a potential three-way conference deadlock.

City College of San Francisco downed host Santa Rosa JC, 47-27, to finish with also finish with the same records as San Mateo: 4-1 conference and 9-1 overall. But Northern California top-ranked San Mateo’s 30-24 victory over CCSF on Halloween gives the Bulldogs the tie-breaking edge to host the region’s title game against either Reedley or College of the Sequoias.

Pelesasa, a sophomore out of Woodside High, completed 8 of 18 passes for 194 yards. Aknin (Carlmont) caught one for a 14-yard TD and rushed for 132 yards on 12 carries for two more scores. He finished the regular season with 885 rushing yards and 1016 yards from scrimmage.
