SUTTER CREEK — The Amador Buffaloes stepped onto the gridiron Friday night undefeated but stepped off defeated — courtesy of the Calaveras Redskins. 

The Redskins kept Amador out of the end zone in the final minute to hold on and earn a 21-15 win. The victory inches the Redskins close to the coveted Mother Lode League title and moves them one step closer to clinching a playoff berth.

Both teams looked nervous early with Amador (6-1, 1-1 MLL) punting on their opening possession, and Calaveras losing a fumble. 

Sonora demolishes Weston Ranch for homecoming victory

Friday night’s homecoming football game between the Wildcats and Cougars was a knock-down, drag-out battle.

Sonora knocked down Weston Ranch with 460 rushing yards and then dragged them out with 55 points in a 55-16 thumping in front of a big crowd at Dunlavy Field.

“We were pretty pumped up coming into this game, we needed a win at home,” said Wildcat quarterback Zach Atwood. “It being homecoming helped.”

Summerville gridders surge past Bret Harte

For the Summerville Bears, a win last Friday was crucial to turning around their football season.

It was the same for the Bret Harte Bullfrogs.

However, only one team walked away victorious.

Summerville, capitalizing on a few Bret Harte miscues, outlasted its Mother Lode League rival 49-3 at Thorsted Field.

“We actually did some things on offense,” said Bullfrogs head coach Jon Byrnes. “We’re moving the ball. We have to eliminate a couple key mistakes that happen in opportune times. We got experienced coaches from around saying that our kids are playing hard, and that’s true. Our kids are playing hard, and for that, I’m proud of them. They don’t give up.”

Bret Harte opened its Mother Lode League football schedule on Friday against Amador and also celebrated its homecoming at Dorroh Field.

The Bullfrogs played even with the undefeated Buffaloes for the first 24 minutes (6-6), but not the last 24.

Amador defeated Bret Harte 41-6 to spoil the Bullfrogs’ celebration.

The Bret Harte defense was nothing short of dominant in the first half, limiting the Buffaloes to just six points.

For The Union Democrat

Calaveras Redskins enjoyed a night where the outcome of the game was not on the line going into the final minute of the fourth quarter, as has been the case for the past three weeks, and cruised to a 28-12 win at Frank Meyer Field.

With the Redskins overall goal being Mother Lode League champions, every victory brings them one step closer.

“Tonight was a big step for us because it allows us to keep momentum going for the remainder of the season, and to go after that league title,” said junior running back/safety T.J. Crenshaw.
