Nipomo 40, Santa Maria 6
Kevin Britt led the Titans, gaining 155 yards on eight receptions in the Los Padres League win.
With the win and losses by Santa Ynez and Templeton, Nipomo (6-3, 4-2 LPL) clinched its second playoff berth in school history.
Britt scored one touchdown early in the second quarter on a 50-yard pass from Josh Correia. Correia finished the night with 233 passing yards.
“We had a big night on defense,” Titans coach Russ Edwards said. “I really have to hand it to our defense. They played a heck of a game. They made some big plays early on and managed to cause a season-high six turnovers throughout the night.”
Pioneer Valley 49, Templeton 19
Daniel Wheeler caught a 33-yard touchdown pass for the Eagles (6-3, 3-3 LPL) who could not contain Pioneer Valley (8-1, 5-1) running back Dan Ando.
Ando rushed for a game-high 214 yards on 12 carries, scoring on runs of 47 and 74 yards.
Templeton quarterback Nolan Hildebrand suffered a concussion during the game and was replaced by Simon Roth, who went 1 of 5 for 7 yards.
Hildebrand, who finished 7 of 14 for 107 yards and a touchdown, will be evaluated sometime this week to determine when he will next play, according to the Templeton coaching staff.
Tyler Gray made three catches for 53 yards, and Kevin Kuntz added a 45-yard touchdown run for the Eagles.

“Our defense played really well tonight,” Morro Bay coach John Andree said. “Pat Kelly and Darek Mendoza came up with a couple of interceptions that were big for us.”
Lockshaw finished with 187 yards on 15 carries, scoring touchdowns on runs of 58 and 26 yards.
Gardner Kennedy was 6-of-8 passing for 96 yards for Morro Bay, including two passes to Lockshaw for 72 yards.
