Frosh fall to Grizzlies The Del Oro freshman football team fell behind by two touchdowns to Granite Bay early in the game last week and were forced to play catch-up the rest of the way. The frosh team finally fell to the Grizzlies, 35-22, in a Sierra Foothill League game at Del Oro. Del Oro received short touchdown runs from Dustin Edwards and Tanner Robison and an 83-yard scoring gallop from Ben Hart. Hart, who filled in for quarterback Bryce Beauchamp, who was injured in the second quarter, also had an 88-yard kickoff return for the hosts.
