Del Oro High School’s JV football team capitalized on four turnovers last Friday night to help pave the way to a season opening 41-0 win over Spanish Springs, of Sparks, Nev. Fumble recoveries by Brian Leveille, Jeremy Pilcher and Jahann Nargussi all setup touchdowns as the Golden Eagles built a 20-0 halftime lead and weren’t threatened in the second half. Nargussi scored on a one-yard run, while Michael Moore and Therin Heryford connected on a long 70-yard scoring pass. Moore also tossed a 29-yard scoring pass to Joe Becker.
