Though three of the four El Dorado County high school football teams play at home tonight, the marquee matchup is just over the county line as Oak Ridge opens Delta River League action at Folsom.

Oak Ridge (5-0) at Folsom (5-0)

Since the 1980s when Oak Ridge opened its doors, the Trojans and Bulldogs have played their share of big games against one another.

“Delta River League opener versus Folsom is certainly a big one,” Trojan head coach Eric Cavaliere said. “Although all Delta River League games are big.”

The Trojans’ defense will face highly touted Bulldog quarterback Jake Browning.

“He makes good decisions, is accurate, and delivers the ball on time,” said Cavaliere of the junior signal caller. “He rarely makes mistakes and manages their offense exceptionally well. Their running game has made big strides.”

The Bulldogs’ defense will take on a Trojan offense led by quarterback Ian Book, running backs Josh Wellman and Tanner Hughes and receivers Jacob Sipes, Justin Priest and Trent Buenzli.
If this game lives up to its hype, expect the winner to be decided in the second half.
Jesuit (5-0) at Ponderosa (4-1)
The Bruins’ statement during its tough loss at Rio Linda last week is that its ready to compete in the Delta River League. In the Marauders, the Bruins face a much improved Jesuit team on both sides of the ball.
Ponderosa quarterback Colby Chiverton leads the offense, and linebacker Xavier Valles leads the defense.
The Bruins celebrate their homecoming tonight. Additionally, Ponderosa fans are encouraged to donate unwanted coats for children as part of the fourth annual Koats for Kids Drive. Tonight’s matchup is also the KCRA Channel 3 Game of the Week.
Note: the Koats for Kids Drive will also be in effect for the Oct. 25 game with Oak Ridge. For more information. e-mail Tammie Sandigo at sandigofamily@yahoo.com or call Amy Szymusik at 916-806-1383 or Jessica Waldron-Morton at 530-363-6322.
Liberty Ranch (2-0, 4-2) at Union Mine (0-2, 0-6)
The visiting Hawks have won their last three games. The Diamondbacks are looking for their first win of the season.
Union Mine is led by running back Austin Rigsby while inside linebacker Kyle McDonald leads the defense.
Bradshaw Christian (2-0, 4-2) at Golden Sierra (1-0, 1-4)
The host Grizzlies are looking to carry momentum from their solid win over Vacaville Christian into their game against The Pride.
Leading Golden Sierra’s offense is running back Cameron Stephens while Sam Steward leads the defense.
