Frosh Falcons face De La Salle

Foothill High School's Homecoming Game is tonight against Granada so the campus is alive with blue and gold school spirit. But last Friday, the battle was against De La Salle at the Foothill High field.

The exciting first quarter had both teams running kickoffs back for touchdowns, but the Falcons' was called back on a penalty. Quarterback Kyle Kearns threw a touchdown pass, and later handed off the ball for another touchdown, amassing 13 points against the Spartans. But it was a losing effort, with the Spartans winning 35-13 with a strong second-half performance.

Kearns was injured in the fourth quarter with a dislocated elbow but is expected to return to the field for the Nov. 4 game against Monte Vista.

On the varsity scene, De La Salle beat Foothill, 39-3, in a league game. The Spartans are now 4-1, while the Falcons are 1-4.

Last week Amador Valley beat the visiting Livermore Cowboys, 14-12. Tonight the Dons, 3-2, face De La Salle. The game will be aired on Channel 30 at 7 p.m. Saturday.
