The Del Oro High frosh football team continued its march through the Sierra Foothill League. Playing Roseville’s Tigers on the road last Thursday night, the Golden Eagles shook off a slow start to hand the Tigers a 25-7 setback. The win, which moves Del Oro’s overall record to 9-0, gives the Golden Eagle a 4-0 SFL record and earns the team at least a share of the league championship. Del Oro will go after the outright crown Thursday when they host Woodcreek at 5:30 p.m. In the Roseville win, Dylan Kainrath scored a pair of touchdowns on rushes. Quarterback Michael Moore also shined with a 50-yard touchdown gallop and a 45-yard scoring pass to Cody Clayton. On defense, Tyler Mateer, Jacob Noah, Tanner Woods and Hunter Heryford all played well.

Monroe caught a 29-yard scoring pass from LaBar and also added a 20-yard TD run.
