EL DORADO HILLS — Two early second half touchdowns and defense allowed visiting Oak Ridge to saddle Delta River League foe Pleasant Grove with its first loss Friday.

The Trojans (8-1, 3-1) came in ranked fourth in the area while the Eagles (8-1, 3-1) held the second rank.

After a 7-all first half, Oak Ridge took the kickoff and capped an 11-play, 65-yard drive when wide receiver Justin Priest scored his second touchdown, hauling in a 10-yard pass from quarterback Ian Book with 7:14 left for a 13-7 lead. Adam Walter booted the extra-point.

“I was able to get around the outside linebacker,” Priest said. “The offensive line, I can’t compliment them enough on how well they did.”

After getting the ball back, the Trojans needed only five plays to increase its lead to 21-7 when running back Drew Lackowski (19 carries, 109 yards) scored on a 29-yard off-tackle play.

“Hats off to the offensive line,” Lackowski said. “They make me and Stephen Douglas (13 carries, 69 yards) look like all-stars out there.”

Oak Ridge head coach Eric Cavaliere added, “Drew just ran hard. He ran straight at them and was very efficient.”

The Trojan defense held after Pleasant Grove returned the kickoff 66 yards to the Trojans’ 32 yard line.

“We really rely on our defense,” Cavaliere said. “They played lights out tonight.”

The Eagles trimmed the Trojans’ lead to 21-14 in the fourth quarter but Oak Ridge had the final say when Douglas scored on a 2-yard run with 4:52 left followed by a Victor Bunce interception to seal the win.

Priest caught his first touchdown pass from Book in the opening quarter on an 18-yard reception.

“I did what I could to beat the guy inside,” said Priest of his touchdown. “The offensive line blocked perfectly.”

The Eagles tied the game on the ensuing drive when Ian Broom scored on a 2-yard run with 4:49 left.

Book completed 14-of-21 passes for 186 yards, including his first nine passes. Tanner Hughes rushed 9 times for 54 yards. Jacob Sipes had 62 receiving yards on four receptions. The Trojans finished with 422 total offensive yards while holding the Eagles to 278.

On defense, Sipes and Colton Giorgi had 13 and 12 tackles, respectively.
