For the first time in 11 years, the San Francisco CYO eighth-grade boys basketball championship belongs to St. Peter-Pacifica.

The championship game was played at St. Thomas More in San Francisco in front of a raucous standing-room-only crowd. After a tight back-and-forth competition, St. Peter was able to score the first basket in a sudden-death overtime to take the championship over Our Lady of Mercy, 49-47.
