In overtime on its first possesion of CIF rules, La Mirada-unable to punch it in for a TD-settled for a field goal, giving them a 27-24 advantage.  

On Laguna Hill's possesion, they drove the ball down to the two yard line, and it appeared they were about to win the game. On 2nd and four from the La Mirada two yard line, the defending Southern Division Laguna Hills Hawks, seemingly ready to make a return trip to the finals, fumbled, and La Mirada recovered.

Game over.

The La Mirada defense came up big, again.

A wild celebration ensued at Goodman Stadium.

Final: La Mirada 27, Laguna Hills 24 (OT).

La Mirada will play the winner of the Garden Grove/Norwalk game tomorrow evening at Excelsior Stadium in Norwalk, beginning at 7:00 p.m.; possibly setting up an all-Suburban League final at Cerritos College next Saturday, December 12th, beginning at 7:00 p.m.
