High school football notes: McClatchy snaps eight-year skid

Victory is always sweet, particularly when it is earned the hard way, rooted in effort and defense. And it’s doubly nice when a dreary streak crashes to a halt to punctuate the moment. McClatchy High School converted a late fourth-and-1 play in order to take a knee and run out the clock – and run off the sting of misery – to beat Cordova 26-24 at venerable Hughes Stadium Friday night.

Giants: Bumgarner perfect into the eighth against Padres

Madison Bumgarner loses his bid for a perfect game on a base hit with two outs in the eighth inning, the only blemish for the Giants’ ace Saturday night in an 8-0 victory over the San Diego Padres. He retires his first 23 batters before pinch-hitter Melvin Upton Jr. sends a clean single up the middle. The big left-hander receives a warm ovation from the disappointed crowd of 41,564 and then goes right back to work.

Voisin: Raiders making right moves

The Raiders are more compelling than the 49ers. More interesting, more intriguing, and on the surface, more daring. Why? The Bee’s Ailene Voisin explains.
