The junior varsity football team ended their season on a high note, beating Justin Siena 20-12 on Saturday, Nov. 8.

An early dropped punt by return man Drew Dawson resulted in a Justin Siena touchdown in the first quarter. However, Redwood was soon able to regain the lead, by effectively running the ball in the remainder of the game, totaling 194 yards and three touchdowns.

According to Redwood running back Adam Powers, the key moment in the game was a 58 yard breakaway touchdown run by Kyle Campbell to give Redwood a 14-6 lead.

“[The touchdown] gave us all the momentum,” Powers said.

Quarterback Trevor Foehr got off to a slow start in the first half, completing just one of his passes for a seven-yard gain. However, he came back strong in the second half, completing a pass to tight end Gus Buddie for 49 yards in a pivotal moment.

With this win, the junior varsity team ended their season with a 6-4 record.
