APTOS - The Cabrillo College football team was stopped inches short in its bid to tie the game and lost to the College of the Redwoods 25-19 in overtime on Saturday afternoon at Carl Connelly Stadium.

The Seahawks never led but tied the game twice, the second coming with less than a minute to play.

Starting quarterback Lucas Romanski found receiver Cliff Robinson and threw to him for a 39-yard touchdown, pulling Cabrillo to within 19-17. On its two-point attempt, Romanski tossed the football to Devyn Grimes, who went into the end zone untouched to tie the game.

Both teams got the football, per overtime rules. Redwoods went first and scored on five plays.

Three of the five plays were for zero or negative yards. But the other two plays were positive, as quarterback Matt Sullivan threw to receiver Anthony Poole. The first toss went for 11 yards. The second toss was a 15-yard touchdown as Poole went to his right and caught the ball falling down.

Cabrillo had a chance to answer Redwoods' drive. It got nine yards on three plays. On fourth-and-one, running back Dylan Jackson was smothered at the 16-yard line but stretched his body to get to the 15-yard line. The officials marked him just inches before the 15-yard line, and the Corsairs celebrated their third win of the season.
