Peewees Rio Linda 14, Vista 6 Ryan Hicks scored the Eagles' only touchdown in the hard-fought loss. The defense, led by Jarron Wade, Dominic Norris, and Joe Curry, among others, largely shut down the high-powered Rio Linda offense. Jr. Midgets Rio Linda 38, Vista 14 A 45-yard touchdown run from Austin Palmieri and a touchdown catch from Landis Settlemoir were not enough to overcome a powerful Rio Linda team. Tanner James also turned in a strong performance, but the Jr. Knights came away with a victory. Midgets Vista 30, Rio Linda 16 Quarterback Andrew Schantz, tailback Austin McGuire and tight end Tyler Kaim led the way in the first half with McGuire busting 68 yards for a touchdown and Schantz connecting with Kaim on the pass for a touchdown making the halftime score 16-16.

Folsom Jr. Bulldogs Jr. Midgets Folsom 24, Oak Ridge 0 The Jr. Bulldogs came out swinging as EJ Turner intercepted a Jr. Trojan pass on the third play of the game.
