Both teams were 9-0 and 3-0 and fighting for the Serra League title in 2010, but of course, Alemany won and never looked back, a perfect 9-0 since joining the league in 2010 with two league titles. Amat had its chance to win that night, but blew it with one of the most self-destructive final 44 seconds of a half I’ve ever seen. It was truly stunning, the Mission Hills Meltdown. Amat was in control and led 17-14 after a go-ahead touchdown with 44 seconds left. I started walking to my computer to write-up the first half when Alemany blitzed down the field, throwing a bomb and then scoring on a four-yard pass play to take a 21-17 lead with 17 seconds left. Then Alemany did an onside kick, got the ball back and threw a “Hail Mary” as time expired to go up 28-17 at halftime. It was game, set, match right there. Amat never regained their swag, momentum and eventually lost 38-30. People are going to say Alemany was better that night, I’m not sure that was the case. They were certainly more opportunistic and even lucky. Check out the highlights from the Inland Insider. Amat heads back to Alemany on Friday at 7 p.m., and we’ll be there too.
