Brody Simison had two touchdown catches and Lucas Black one. Tobey Lau added a rushing touchdown.

A Gerardo Becerra field goal opened the scoring for Paly (2-2). Peters connected with his tight end, Black, for a score and found his way into the end zone on a quarterback keeper to make it 17-7 at halftime.

Josh Butler sat out with a leg injury, the third game he's missed out of four.

"We just don't want to risk anything long-term,"' Palo Alto coach Nelson Gifford said.

Jack Newman and Lau filled in at running back. Newman had a long run to set up Lau's touchdown.

Iki Tupou (6-6, 240) returned from an injury and started at left tackle. The reshuffled line included Jordan-Elijah Fakatou, moving from right tackle to left guard, Vainga Mahe at center, Kyle Lee at right guard and Kalev Vaska at right tackle.

"It's the first time we played that group and it worked out well,'' Gifford said.

After playing Saturday afternoon, Paly has a short week before taking on Santa Clara in a SCVAL De Anza Division opener, Thursday at home.

"It's a short turnaround,'' Gifford said. "We're going to have to focus on recovery and get ready.''
