Bruins, Trojans tonight

From page A9 | October 25, 2013 |

All five El Dorado County teams are in action for Week 8 tonight, three are at home.

Oak Ridge is at Ponderosa, El Dorado hosts Liberty Ranch, Union Mine entertains Galt for Homecoming and Golden Sierra travels to Rio Vista.

Oak Ridge at Ponderosa

Because of realignment, this is the last Delta River League meeting between the Trojans (1-1, 6-1) and Bruins (0-2, 4-3).

Ponderosa coach Jason Tenner said team records “never matter” when it comes to this rivalry.

“I expect there to be a packed house with a lot of energy,” Tenner said.

Oak Ridge head coach Eric Cavaliere added, “What we know here at Oak Ridge is that Ponderosa will play its best game of the year against us, and we need to be prepared for a battle.”

Oak Ridge quarterback Ian Book connected with Justin Priest last week for three scores while Josh wellman ran for three touchdowns. Ponderosa is paced by quarterback Cody Chiverton and running backs Austin Tibbs and Tyrone Scalero.

Oak Ridge needs another league win to secure an at-large Sac-Joaquin Section Division I playoff berth. Ponderosa needs a league win, period.

Liberty Ranch at El Dorado

The host Cougars (0-3, 3-4) and visiting Hawks (3-1, 5-3) are fighting for their playoffs lives in a Sierra Valley Conference game.

If El Dorado wins, it has momentum going into its final two conference games. El Dorado can still earn a playoff berth with an overall 5-5 record.

Behind quarterback Nick Bonniksen and running back Logan Kirby, El Dorado averages 37 points per game.

The 1983 El Dorado High football team that won the section’s D-II title and players from coach Mike Coulson’s era will be recognized at this game.

Galt at Union Mine

In another Sierra Valley Conference game, the host Diamondbacks (0-4, 0-7) are looking to rattle the visiting Warriors (0-4, 1-6),

Union Mine, coming off a bye week, has shown improvement. Against a Galt team that’s been shut out in three of its last four games, the D’backs look to win their first game.

Golden Sierra at Rio Vista

Golden Sierra (2-1, 2-5) picked up playoff momentum with its win at Highlands last week.

If the Grizzlies can beat the Rams (3-1, 7-1) and win their final two league games, they can earn a playoff berth.

Quarterback Daniel Lesher and running backs Jeff Klahn, Brian Cann and Cameron Stephens lead the Griz attack.

Note: the start time has been moved to 7 p.m.
