Wildfires drill Delta to finish title run
By: Journal Sports Staff
The Foresthill High football team left no doubt who rightfully owns the Sacramento Metro Athletic League championship banner. Foresthill claimed its first league title, capping the run with a win over the defending champion. The Wildfires whipped Delta 34-8 Friday in Clarksburg to finish a perfect 8-0 run through the SMAL. The Wildfires went to work early as Tommy Sawyer hit Ian Sykes with a 24-yard touchdown pass. Wes Archbold added two rushing touchdowns in the first half and Nick Gleason had a one-yard TD plunge as the visitors built a 26-0 lead by halftime. Archbold finished with 176 yards on the ground with three TDs. Foresthill rushed for 294 yards as a team. Foresthill (9-1) will play its first home playoff game on Nov. 18 after earning a first-round bye in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division VI playoffs. The Wildfires will host either Vacaville Christian or Elliot Christian.
