    Oceanside's Rene Siluano (14) takes a screen pass 55 yards for a touchdown late in the Pirates' 24-19 victory over San Jose Bellarmine Prep on Friday in the CIF state Division I bowl game. The victory gave Oceanside its second state title in three years.

    Backed up to its 1-yard line with the game hanging in the balance, the Oceanside High football team put together a drive for the ages.

    Led by quarterback Quentis Clark, the Pirates assembled a 17-play, 99-yard scoring drive that consumed more than seven minutes and gave them the lead for good in the CIF state Division I bowl game. Clark finished the drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Jerry Whittaker, and the eventual 24-19 victory over San Jose Bellarmine Prep on Friday at Home Depot Center gave Oceanside its second state title in three years.
