After the first quarter it was all Foothill. If they could have played like that all year they wouldn't have had the garbage record they had. Foothill beat every good team in the league(Except DLS), as did Amador, but just lost to the worst teams. If they can carry this into NCS they have a good chance. Amador needs to hope Stancil is OK or they are finished in NCS.
Anyone unbiased and with real knowledge of these teams had to think Amador was going to roll over them, but I'm glad Foothill won, it really gives both teams now something to be proud of this season. Friday the 13th was a night of upsets with Berkeley losing also. Amador could have been 2nd seed with Foothill barely in it, now Amador will be 4th with foothill a respectable 10th

I may have been rooting for the OTHER team, but I have to say it was a great experience watching the hometown rivals go at it. Good natured signs everwhere for both teams, kids dressed head to toe in blue and purple and lots of good clean fun. It's a great town to go to high school in and to live in. But next year the Falcons are going down! (Had to get that in)

Not 100% sure, but I believe that is 5 years in a row for Foothill.

Great game. The turn around during the 2nd half by Foothill was amazing. The stadium was crowded with fans from both teams. The city 'turned out' and it was an electric evening under the lights.


Congratulations to both teams for making NCS playoffs - and I wish you both good luck!





Go Foothill!
