-A +A
With apologies to the Oakland Raiders ... “Just Win Baby.” That’s the team mantra being picked up by the Del Oro Golden Eagles these days as the Sierra Foothill League football season heads for a stretch run that will probably require SFL fans to put on seat belts. Keeping with their recent penchant of taking their faithful on a wild roller-coaster ride, Friday night the Golden Eagles did it again as they parlayed a gritty second half of big plays on both sides of the ball to pull out a thrilling 24-21 win over host Granite Bay. And, the win couldn’t have come at a more opportune time for the Golden Eagles who putting it simply are playing for their playoff lives every time they step on the field. ~ Staff report ------------------------ Sierra Foothill League Football Standings W L Roseville (6-2) 3 0 Del Oro (4-4) 2 1 Rocklin (6-2) 2 1 G.
