The California High School JV football team traveled to Ashland Sept. 30, where the Pintos romped to a 41-0 win over the Southern Boone Eagles.

"The boys worked very hard and played strong throughout the entire game," California Coach Rich Matzes said.

Brandan Gump intercepted a pass and ran it back for a Pinto TD.

California hosted Blair Oaks Monday night at Riley Field, where the JV and freshmen each played two quarters.
