The Central Coast Section's two most storied football programs -- 130 playoff wins and 27 section titles between them -- will meet Saturday night at Westmont High for the Division II championship.
Los Gatos will be aiming for its 14th CCS title, St. Francis its 15th.
The last time the teams met with a title at stake, in the 2002 Division III final, the game ended 21-21 (there was no overtime then).
This year's teams are rolling into the title game. Los Gatos has won four in a row since a 17-15 loss to Milpitas on Oct. 26, including an overtime semifinal win over Wilcox last week. St Francis has won its past three games by a combined score of 107-7, including a 24-0 victory over Open Division semifinalist Serra on Nov. 10.
"They look good on both sides of the ball," Los Gatos coach Butch Cattolico said. "They're playing awfully well. They don't make many mistakes, and they don't beat themselves."
St. Francis' Mike Lauck has thrown for a school-record 2,326 yards and tied a school record with 25 touchdown passes this season.
Los Gatos sophomore Joey Wood has rushed for four touchdowns in the team's two playoff wins, and Nick Bawden threw for 198 yards and ran for a score in the victory over Wilcox.
"With Los Gatos, you have to stop their running game and get after their quarterback," St. Francis coach Nick Navarro said.
