Seventh-ranked Amador Valley High defeated San Ramon Valley 35-16 Saturday afternoon in an unusual daytime game at the San Ramon field.
The game was played Saturday because the lights went out at the San Ramon stadium just as the scheduled Friday night game was starting. Coaches from both schools agreed to postpone the game instead of waiting to see if the banks of lights that failed could be powered back up.
With three turnovers in the first half, the Amador Dons trailed the San Ramon Wolves 10-0. Then the Dons turned the game around, capitalizing on interceptions and a superior offense to take the lead and keep going to a 35-16 finish.
At the end, the game saw 10 turnovers, with quarterback Kean Stancil scoring Amador's first touchdown at the start of the third quarter, and then passing for two touchdowns to move the score in the Dons favor.
The win placed Amador Valley 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the EBAL.
The Dons play Livermore High Friday at Amador.
