Foothill's win over Granada moves team to 4-4 overall, 3-2 in EBAL play


After suffering through a sluggish first half, the Foothill varsity football team rallied for a thrilling 22-21 win over Granada in East Bay Athletic League play last Friday night.

The win moved the Falcons to 4-4 overall and 3-2 in EBAL play, but was not locked up until the Granada kicker missed a 38-yard field goal attempt in the final seconds.

The highlight of the game for the Falcons was an 82-yard touchdown pass from Ben Wooldridge to Sam Ortiz. The TD came just two plays after Granada had a 100-yard interception return to take the lead.

Next up for Foothill is a game at Livermore (4-4, 2-4) on Friday. The Cowboys are coming off a 25-16 loss to a Dublin team Foothill beat 38-3 earlier in the season.

Amador dropped a 35-7 game to the very strong Monte Vista, falling to 3-6 overall and 3-4 in the EBAL.

The Dons are off this week with a bye before ending the season by hosting Foothill on Nov. 4, needing a win over their rivals to qualify for the NCS playoffs.
