STILL PERFECT The Palo Alto Knights' Jr. Midgets football team has a history with its counterpart Oak Grove of San Jose. The teams have met in the NorCal Championship game in each of the past three seasons, with Palo Alto winning all three and advancing to the national playoffs. While there's a good chance the two will meet once again in the playoffs, it won't be the only time. In fact, a preview of the postseason will be on display Sunday at Palo Alto High when the teams meet at 4:30 p.m. Both teams will bring 8-0 records to the showdown. The Knights are currently ranked No. 5 in the nation while Oak Grove is ranked No. 8 in the American Youth Football Division I Power Rankings. In addition to the Jr. Midgets' game on Sunday, the Knights will host Oak Grove in Jr. Pee Wee (11 a.m.), Tiny Mites (1 p.m.) and Cadets (2:30 p.m.). The Palo Alto Jr. Midgets improved to 8-0 with a 40-6 victory over the San Francisco Seahawks on Sunday at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco.
