El Dorado stymied in Elk Grove

ELK GROVE — Homecoming, a full moon and big-play mentality were on display by host Cosumnes Oaks in Friday’s 52-21 Sierra Valley Conference victory over El Dorado.

After three offensive snaps and less than a quarter of play, the Wolfpack had three touchdowns, one via a defensive interception return. It started with a game-opening 91-yard kickoff return to the Cougar 5-yard line and went from there.

“They’re a good football team, explosive, a big school and have a lot of weapons,” El Dorado coach Joe Volek said. “Our biggest attribute was that we didn’t lie down and die … I’m proud of the way we finished.”

Cosumnes Oaks quarterback Alex Kopp threw for four touchdowns, two each to Alex Van Dyke and LJ Reed. Kopp’s counterpart, Nick Bonniksen, tossed for two scores and ran for another.

The Cougars were hampered with the loss of two-way starter Derek Delfino. El Dorado’s early highlight was Tyler Clanin’s 56-yard kickoff return that saw Clanin escape/break numerous tackles on a spinning, herky-jerky electrifying run up the sideline.

A 22-yard fumble return completed the ‘Packs’ scoring as the second half opened. The Cougars answered as Bonniksen had 13-yard completions to Cory Miller and Sam Osterhout and a 5-yarder to Zach Culp before Bonniksen took off on a 38-yard scamper for first and goal.

After Bonniksen’s 9-yard touchdown pass to Wolfgang Shepherd, El Dorado came back behind the running of Logan Kirby and passes to Shepherd and Culp. From the 2, Bonniksen found Kirby over the goal line for six points and ran it in on the two-point conversion.

The Cougars also scored late in the fourth quarter. Kirby picked up 23 yards running and caught a 22-yard pass, Shepherd grabbed a 9-yard pass and Bonniksen covered the final 1 yard. Gabe  Hewritt added the extra point.
