Back home after a tough two weeks on the road, Colfax earned its second league victory with another monster performance by quarterback Michael Wilson

The win puts Colfax at 7-1 overall and 2-1 in PVL play. The Falcons hit the road against Placer next week.

Despite a 4-4 overall record, Placer is the only unbeaten team in the PVL at 3-0.
The Hillmen will put that record on the line next week when they host Colfax.

In a back-and-forth affair between two of the top contenders for the Sierra Foothill League title, it was Del Oro knocking off Granite Bay with a late field goal to stay unbeaten in league play.
After Granite Bay stormed back from a 27-14 deficit with a pair of passing touchdowns to make it 28-27, Del Oro had one last drive.
The Golden Eagles (6-2, 3-0 SFL) drove down the field setting up Mason Humes with a 27-yard field goal attempt for the win. Humes hit the kick, his third of the night, and Del Oro remains at the top of the SFL with Rocklin.
