Foothill, Amador Valley meet tonight in annual cross-town football duel

Game moved from Friday night to provide Veterans Day tribute

The Amador Valley Dons will host the Foothill Falcons tonight in the city's annual cross-town football competition.

The game was moved from its Friday schedule to honor Veterans Day. The local Veterans of Foreign Wars color guard will make a special appearance before the start of the game. The event will get under way at 7 p.m. on the Amador Valley field.

Last Friday, Amador Valley nudged the visiting San Ramon Valley Wolves 24-21. In their clash with Foothill, the Dons will attempt to move on their 4-5 season record. The Falcons enter the bout with a 5-4 record after their 49-7 league loss to California High, also last Friday.

I think you have this backwards...Freshman game plays first, or even today, Wednesday; then the JV game plays...Varsity starts at 7pm.

A Neighbor,

Yup, exactly what you said: Web Link

Looks like they are using the cover of Veterans Day when talking to The Weekly to explain the change when it is only because of furloughs. Why the doublespeak though?

For those who were at the game last night for the Freshmen @ Foothill, the Foothill Quarter Back is in good spirit but has a broken femur, is the word i got. We wish Max a quick recovery. Foothill dominated the game with some great running from Touchdown Tommy and Vos getting it done. Score 31 to 6. (i think?) Good job Foothill Freshmen. Keep up the good work.

Well I was a little off on the Freshmen score, i should have said 48 to 13. Oops!
Last night was very fun to watch and great to see all the hoopla from the teams and fans. Foothill squeaks out a win on both the games. Great job from all. Great to see the town come together in one place like that.
