Two things can be said about Fremont quarterback William Yates. One, he doesn't lack confidence. And two, he is hard to stop whenever he has the ball. Yates passed for 147 yards and a touchdown and ran for 86 yards and two touchdowns to lead Fremont to a 28-21 win over Washington in a City Section 3-A semifinal game Friday night at Fremont. Fremont (11-2) advances to the championship game for the first time in 43 years. The Pathfinders will face San Pedro, which beat Reseda, 17-0, on Friday.
