Salesian takes fourth Division 5 championship
Richmond's Salesian College Preparatory beat St. Helena High School 14-7 to win the North Coast Section Division 5 football championship game on Dec. 5 at Alhambra High School in Martinez. The top-seeded Pride had their hands full with the Saints from St. Helena, and the game was in doubt until 3:12 remained, when Pride senior Dominic Parella covered an onside kick, denting St. Helena's hopes of a comeback. "Defensively, that's where the game was really won for us," Salesian Coach Chad Nightingale said after savoring the victory with his players. The Pride limited St. Helena to 67 yards rushing and 89 passing by controlling the line of scrimmage. Defensive ends Kyree Harvey and Galuega Toailoa were outstanding, along with defensive backs Vegas Shackleford and Prentiss Reid. It was a well-played game, with no turnovers and few penalties. Nightingale tipped his cap to the kids from St. Helena, "That coaching staff had these kids so well prepared." The victory marked Salesian's fourth NCS title in five years.
