Despite a younger team (only 7 seniors) and a close first half (score tied at 13-13), the McClymonds Warriors  scored three touchdowns in the second half to win the Silver Bowl Friday over Skyline by 33-19.

This was the second consecutive Silver Bowl victory  to which quarterback Eddie Heard  led the Mack team. The team finished 9-2.

Senior running back Harold Halcomb III ran for 162 years and two touchdowns including the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, according to news reports.

After that play, Skyline attempted a lateral, which was fumbled and recovered by Mack’s Jason Brooks for a touchdown, stretching the lead to 25-13. A similar play led to a  40-yard run and touchdown by Lovell Samuels, making the score 33-13. Coming off the field, the Warriors were all smiles. One said, “We got this game.”

But Skyline quarterback Jamal Mayo managed to run for a touchdown, his second in the game, to make the score 33-19. The game ended with another interception by Eddie Heard.

Several Mack grads who had played football rushed onto the field, including Denzale Johnson, now a freshman at the University of California at Berkeley. Johnson was part of last year’s squad  finished the season undefeated 12-0, with the only other school to do so, Skyline in 1997.

“Feels good to watch Mack win. That’s what we’re here for,” said Johnson.

“Skyline has a great program, they came prepared.  Now we are going to enjoy the victory, come February it’s back to the weight room, ” said Coach Curtis McCauley.

McClymonds has won four of the past six championship games and adds another Silver Bowl title to its collection of six, second behind Skyline, which holds 16 titles.
