Foothill wins over Amador Valley with 2 late-game touchdowns

Hard-fought game at packed stadium ends season for cross-town rivals

The Foothill High School Falcons walloped the Dons from Amador Valley High School Nov. 10, 21-7, with two fourth-quarter touchdowns on the Foothill field.

A packed stadium on a cool, clear night cheered and gasped as the cross-town rivals battled it out. Foothill led Amador Valley 7-0 at half-time, but the Dons quickly came back to tie the game, making the score 7-7 at the start of the fourth quarter. The Dons continued driving toward a tie-breaking goal only to fail to make enough yardage for a field goal.

A fourth-down punt gave Foothill the ball at its own 13-yard line, setting the Falcons on a march down the field that gave quarterback Tommy Paulson a chance to connect with two passes and a touchdown.

Paulson connected again late in the game, giving Foothill the game-ending 21-7 lead over Amador Valley.
