CITRUS HEIGHTS — Golden Sierra mixed its running game with the pass in its Sierra Delta League football finale against San Juan at McArthur Field Friday, leading to a 49-7 victory.

The win secured second place the Grizzlies (5-1, 5-5), which received an automatic playoff’ berth. Golden Sierra hosts Delhi (2-5 Southern League, 5-5) this Friday.

Grizzly quarterback Daniel Lesher completed 4-of-9 passes for 100 yards and a touchdown. Nick White (2 receptions, 51 yards) and Brian Cann (2-49) were Lesher’s targets and the Grizzlies also had 271 yards rushing.

“When you get to the playoffs, it’s one of those things you must have the ability to use both on offense,” Griz coach John Hilton said. “We’ve spent a lot of time in practices working on passing. We run the ball well but we just needed to come out and throw the ball.”

Golden Sierra scored three touchdowns in the second quarter  to post a 28-0 halftime lead. Cameron Stephens scored the first on a 13-yard sweep with Cann booting the extra-point.

Stephens then picked off a pass to set up Brenden Nutt’s (8 carries, 96 yards) 1-yard run.

“I saw the quarterback threw it, and I just jumped up and got it,” said Stephens of his interception.

Hilton added, “He’s playing better each week.”

Golden Sierra increased its lead to 21-0 when Lesher rolled out and found Cann in the flats for a 28-yard catch and carry into the end zone. Cann scored his second touchdown on a 10-yard run.

After San Juan scored thanks to the aide of an onside kick to start the second half that was capped by a 1-yard run, the Grizzlies took charge the rest of the way. Nutt scored on a 7-yard run and the last two touchdowns came in the fourth quarter on Anthony Roses’ 6-yard run before Austin Burrows scooped up a loose ball and raced 45-yards for the score with three minutes left in the game.
