Excerpts below from Mercury News story, "King's Academy stands tall to claim CCS D-III title over Terra Nova."
TKA Knights celebrate back-to-back CCS championships after a 14-13 victory against Terra Nova in CCS Division III football championship game! Top-seeded TKA (10-3) will play in a NorCal regional for the first time in school history.
"Unbelievable," Lavorato said. "We had the game won like four or five times. It's testament to our defense and a testament of how courageous our kids are."
"I don't care who, where what, when — it doesn't matter," said Lavorato, who claimed his seventh CCS title this decade — five at SHP from 2010-15 and back-to-back trophies at TKA, last year's Division V winner. "We're playing in a NorCal championship game. That is really cool."
We just learned TKA will be HOSTING a CA regional bowl game, which is amazing! If TKA wins this game, we will move on to a State Championship game. Details below.
