Freshman California Pintos defeat Osage Indians

September 13th, 2011 in News

The California High School freshman and JV football teams hosted Osage Tuesday, Sept. 6, at Riley Field, where the freshman Pintos captured a 36-14 win.

"We played very well in the first half," California Coach Richard Matzes said regarding the freshman game.

The Pintos were first to score in the first quarter with a 93-yard touchdown by Drew Norton that resulted from an interception. Though the two-point conversion run failed, California led 6-0. Eli Freemen also had an interception, and Walker Borghardt scored on a 27-yard run, then ran in the two-point play, to give the Pintos a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.
