Published: Sunday, November 17, 2013 at 09:07 PM.

With less than a minute to go in the half, Ortner was picked off again, this time by Aaron Paul. On the very next play, the Sharks scored on a 14-yard pass play with Paul making the catch. St. Joe led 28-7 at the half.

Late in the third quarter, the Seahawks scored on a 21-yard strike from Ortner to Alex Smith for a 28-14 game.

The Sharks muffed the ensuing kickoff and Seahawk Chandler Parrett made the recovery. The Seahawks took the ball down the field and scored in 11 plays. Ortner hit Smith as he slid into the end zone for a 5-yard score and 28-21 game.

In the last five minutes, the Sharks' Lacour kicked a 23-yard field goal, and Griggs scored two more running touchdowns, 35 yards and 49 yards for a 45-21 finish.

Despite the loss, Coach Tisa has enjoyed the ride this season.

"I can't be more proud of our guys; nobody thought we'd be here right now … I just love them."

While the Seahawks finish at 7-4, the Sharks, 8-3 advance to the Regional Finals next Friday night.
