De La Salle vs Serra Football Game

The showdown Friday night between high school football giants De La Salle and Serra was probably a tougher ticket than any other Bay Area sporting event in months.

This will be the first meeting b/w De La Salle (1-0) & Serra (1-0 in 6 years. Both coaches Justin Alumbaugh, Spartans & Patrick Walsh, Padres are great friends & former star players at De La Sale.

This will be Serra’s second consecutive road game against a heavyweight team.

“I've no one to blame but myself,” Patrick Walsh said about the back-to-back road games against Folsom & DLS to open the 2022 season. “I take full accountability for what’s happening to our team.”

De La Salle is No. 1 in the Bay Area News Group rankings; Serra is No. 2.

Serra just won its season opener on the road against Folsom, another NorCal heavyweight that ended De La Salle’s season last season.

De La Salle had to play Folsom in the regionals last year because Serra, not DLS, was picked by the California Interscholastic Federation to represent NorCal.
