PREP FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: Colfax rallies past Center, Folsom tops Rocklin

The Colfax Falcons kept their playoff hopes alive Friday by rallying from a 28-14 deficit to beat Pioneer Valley League foe Center, 42-35.

With the game knotted at 35-35, Colfax’s senior running back Lukas Rineer scored from a yard out to put the Falcons up 42-35 with 23 seconds left in the game.

Colfax’s Jakob Norad thwarted Center’s last gasp effort to tie the game with a sack.

The Falcons also got strong play from junior quarterback Austin Weir who had 221 yards passing and touchdown tosses to Matthew Harshman and Nick Van Doorn.

Next up for Colfax (3-5, 1-2 PVL) is a home game against Foothill (2-6, 1-2 PVL) Friday. Center (4-4, 0-3 PVL) will look to earn its first league win of the season Friday when it hosts Bear River (7-1, 2-1 PVL).

Foothill 69, Lincoln 62

The Mustangs earned their first PVL win of the season Friday, topping the Zebras in a high-scoring affair in Lincoln.

Foothill was held to just seven points a week ago in a loss to Bear River, but had no trouble scoring on Lincoln, who came into the game allowing 34.6 points per game this season.

Foothill (2-6, 1-2 PVL) will now travel to Colfax Friday, and Lincoln (5-3, 2-1 PVL) heads to Placer.
