Going into Saturday night's Eastern Conference championship game, Hacienda Heights Los Altos High School had won six championship games in six attempts.
But the Conquerors learned first hand that there is a first time for everything.
Taking advantage of seven Los Altos turnovers, Northview came from behind to score a 21-18 victory before a crowd of about 6,000 at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut.
It was the first championship for Northview (12-1-1), which won its last 12 games. Los Altos (12-2) entered the game with an 11-game winning streak.
Los Altos took a 10-7 lead into the second half, but Northview assumed control in the third quarter.
The Vikings went ahead for good when quarterback Bill Gallis optioned to running back Mike Galindo, who ran 72 yards for a touchdown and a 14-10 lead.
