Lancers overtime thriller clinches playoff home game

The Lancers celebrate their one-point win against Serra.

In a suspenseful neck to neck game, the Bishop Amat Lancers came out with a 41-40 overtime victory against the Serra Cavaliers.

With an even match up, the Lancers offense was able to get the ball up the field. Junior running back Aiden Ramos had one of his best games of the season with 179 rushing and two touchdowns. Junior Hunter Watson threw for a total of 85 passing yards and three touchdowns while filling in for an injured Tobin O’Dell.

Defensively, the Lancers had a rough time stopping Serra, but senior cornerback Mark Thomas III made the game-winning play stopping a two-point conversion pass in overtime.

This Friday, the Lancers will face off against Yorba Linda at home in Kiefer Stadium in round 1 of CIF Division 2 playoffs.
