Pintos lose nail-biter to Falcons, 29-28

We knew Friday night's game at the Falcon Athletic Complex was going to be intense. It was two longtime rivals, both state-ranked and riding high on winning streaks, facing off for the first time this season, and it was Blair Oaks' Homecoming. Somebody was bound to be disappointed. In the end though, this really wasn't the case. Sure, Pinto fans were disappointed California lost, but what a whale of a game it was! Hats off to both teams for executing an exciting nail-biter that the Falcons won 29-28.
