FOOTBALL: Tigers pick up tough road win against Del Campo

Defeating last year’s league champs, the Tigers move to 4-0




Last Friday, the varsity football team traveled to Del Campo and won a tough road game 28-24. This was a big win for the Tigers, who managed to overcome seven turnovers en route to defeating last year’s CVC champions.

Senior Dominic Rucker thinks that although this was a big win for the Tigers, it gave them a look at what they have to improve upon.

“This was a big win for us,” Rucker said, “We turned the ball over seven times, and we will still able to win which is a very good sign.”

Rucker also said that even though the Tigers were able to win with seven turnovers, that they need to clean up on the offensive side of the ball.

“I think we need to do a better job protecting the ball,” Rucker said. “When we get into the heart of our schedule, we can’t afford to turn the ball over that much and still do what we want to do.”

And what they want to do, according to Rucker, is go to the playoffs.

“Of course everybody wants to go 10-0, but sometimes that’s not a realistic goal,” Rucker said, “We want to go 8-2 realistically and hopefully do well in playoffs.”

With their first 4-0 start in the CVC, the Tigers look well on their way to a playoff berth. The Tigers will play host to the Cosumnes Oaks Wolfpack next Friday for the Homecoming game.
