(1) Bellarmine defeats (2) Milpitas for 7th CCS title in school history
It was a rematch of last years Open Division round one match up and while there was no upset to be talked about this year, the Bellarmine Bells once again prevailed, this time to the tune of 26-13.

This was the bout everyone was expecting when brackets were revealed three weeks ago. The reshaped Open Division wasn’t quite the gauntlet that it was last year and as a result, both (1) Bellarmine and (2) Milpitas rolled through their respected competition with ease. The Bells and the Trojans averaged roughly 40 points per game in their two games leading up to the championship and only Bellarmine allowed any points (seven points in round two to San Benito).
The Bells showcased its speed once again with the likes of running backs Antonio Garcia, Kyle Macauley, Devin Buenrostro and quarterback Troy Martig. The track meet that has been displayed week in and week out negated the clear size advantage on the defensive line for the Trojans.
The steadiness of the running game allowed the Bells to open up the playbook with a perfectly timed flea-flicker that resulted with a Martig to Macauley, 79 yard touchdown connection in the 3rd quarter, extending the Bells lead to 20-7 at the time.
Martig’s legs gave Bellarmine even more breathing room early in the fourth with a 32yd quarterback draw for a touchdown, making it 26-7 (PAT was missed). Martig finished the night seven of nine for 195 yards through the air, while officially adding 30 yards on the ground, in route to “MVP” honors for the Week 15 “Game of the Week.”
Collectively, the “Playmaker” designation was awarded to the Defense that limited any big plays by the Trojans, attacked the quarterback and made plenty of stops for the offense to take advantage of. Star running back Cros Chavez of Milpitas picked up 72 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries but suffered a shoulder injury and was not a factor down the stretch.
This was the seventh CCS title claimed by the Bellarmine Bells, first since 2011. This also marked the second straight appearance in the title game, after being shutout by the Sacred Heart Prep Gators last year. But unlike last season, this was no Cinderella story or upset, the Bells did what was expected of them…WIN.
