The Paso Robles High School football team pulled out a 48-44 win in an old-fashioned shootout with McClymonds on Friday night in Oakland.
“No one was stopping anyone,” Paso Robles head coach Rich Schimke said. “It was whoever had the ball last.”
Mark Armstrong scored the game-winner for Paso Robles with two minutes to play on a 1-yard rushing touchdown.
Bearcats running back Christian Erickson had 33 carries for 271 yards and five touchdowns to go along with an 80-yard kickoff return for a score.
Never miss a local story.
Schimke said Nolan Binkele came up big on both sides of the ball, catching a pass on a crucial fourth down late in the game and coming up with an interception in the red zone.
“We were lucky to get out of there with a win,” Schimke said.
After driving north on Friday, Paso Robles (3-0) will head south next Friday to play Cajon in San Bernardino.
Templeton 15, San Luis Obispo 6
Templeton started off the night with a safety and ended it with an interception return for a touchdown and a 40-yard scoring run by Nate Avery in a win Friday over San Luis Obispo (0-3).
An errant snap on a SLO punt attempt led to the safety and a 2-0 Templeton lead at halftime. SLO briefly took the lead in the third quarter on a 56-yard touchdown run by Javon Montgomery.
But Templeton (1-1) took the lead again for good with the interception for a touchdown, and Avery put the win on ice with his touchdown run.
Montgomery led the way offensively for SLO with 180 yards rushing and a touchdown. Pierson Moichuk added 85 yards on the ground for the Tigers, who had 250 rushing yards total.
Templeton plays host to Cabrillo next Friday, while SLO is at home against Morro Bay.
Nipomo 38, Carpinteria 0
The Nipomo defense held Carpinteria to just 110 yards of total offense and cruised to a comfortable win Friday night.
Quarterback Nicolas Robledo threw for two touchdowns, and running back Michael Jordan ran for more than 100 yards and two touchdowns.
“It was a good bounce-back game for (Robledo),” Nipomo head coach Tony Dodge said.
J.J. Rimerez added an interception on defense.
Nipomo (1-2) goes against Santa Ynez next Friday.
