Historic Run Ends For Amador Football

Historic Run Ends For Amador Football

Amador High Football’s historic run came to an end Saturday night at Murrieta Mesa High School in Murrieta. The Buffaloes fell to Rancho Christian of Temecula 38-13 in the CIF Division 6-AA State Championship game.  Both teams entered the contest riding 10-game winning streaks and neither was expected, back in August when the season began, to still be playing in mid-December.  And what a season it was, the Buffaloes won their first Sac-Joaquin Section Football title, beating Bradshaw Christian of Sacramento 30-7 for the Division 6 crown. Amador then beat Lincoln of San Francisco 45-20 in a Northern California play-in game before downing previously unbeaten Mendota 21-14 in the CIF NorCal Regional Bowl, to earn the right to play in last Saturday’s State Championship game.   After the game, in an inspirational speech, Head Coach Bill Baker praised his team and coaching staff, reminding them to hold their heads high, and that this season was one they will remember and talk about all their lives and to be proud not only of how they represented the school, but all of Amador County.
