Quarterback Kesomi Mafi ran for 87 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Wildcats (4-7) to their playoff win at Skyline High last Friday afternoon. Mafi also threw for 128 yards as the Wildcats qualified for their Silver Bowl appearance in 19 years.
The Wildcats will now take on McClymond High School in the OAL Championship Silver Bowl, to be held at Laney College on Friday, November 29th at 1pm. Oakland last won a Silver Bowl in 1993 when it beat Skyline, 27-14. McClymonds will look for its fourth straight Silver Bowl crown as it takes on Oakland this week.
