The Portola (class of 2018) squad from last year came out rockin’ the old school green jerseys versus this year’s Korematsu (class of 2019) team in red.
The historic stage was set… Green vs red. Old vs new. Toros vs Phoenix. Portola vs Korematsu.
At stake was a lifetime of bragging rights.
The younger Korematsu squad had something to prove. They wanted to back up their 13-1 regular season record and citywide championship with a win. They were up 9 at halftime.
The Portola team, their backs up against the wall and playing with the desperation of a big brother refusing to let the younger one win, quickly cut the lead to five and then three to start the 2nd half. It remained a one possession game for the rest of the second half. The game was deadlocked 56-56 with less than a minute to go. Finally, with only eight seconds left on the clock, Portola scored two points to put the game away.
Final score: 58 Portola – 56 Korematsu
Great finish to a great season and memories to last a lifetime!
