Dons win latest edition of unlikely rivalry


Cathedral Catholic upsets top-ranked Helix as teams meet for sixth year in a row

Super Saints on the march


Balanced St. Augustine squad wins everything except the night’s 50-50 raffle


Senior standout Frank Buncom IV hauls in a 15-yard touchdown pass for St. Augustine in the first half.


By Steve Brand, Special to the U-T

Final score: St. Augustine 41, Otay Ranch 7.

Key plays: Frank Buncom IV was all over the field but especially on the third Saints TD. His two 27-yard receptions, the second stretching out and catching the ball inches off the ground, set up the Saints on the Otay Ranch 15, where he caught a swing pass from Thomas Goodridge and went in untouched. With just 13.5 seconds remaining in the half, the same pass-catch combo clicked for a 35-yard score.
