The win was the first of the season for Redwood, whose record moved up to 1-2 overall.

The Giants’ defense was particularly impressive, as they didn’t concede any points the entire game. Terra Linda’s only score came from an interception returned for a touchdown on the first play of the game.

Junior Alex Wilson, who plays wide receiver on offense and safety on defense, contributed to the defensive effort with two interceptions. The most important one came with fewer than two minutes left in the fourth quarter to seal the game for the Giants.

“Everyone was fired up after the first interception that went back for a touchdown and wanted to shut them down the rest of the game,” Wilson said. “We were just trying to grind them and tire them out the whole game and it worked.”

Junior Trevor Foehr got his first start of the season as a quarterback, and changed the tide of the game in the first quarter after connecting with Wilson for a 51 yard gain. The drive later ended with a four-yard touchdown pass to Enzo Tallerico to make the score 7-6, as the Giants failed to convert the extra point.

The Giants took the lead with 1:49 left in the third quarter after fullback Kyle Fulton punched it in from the two-yard line. Fulton added a two-point conversion to make the score 14-7.

The Giants will look to improve their record next week when they play against Mission High School on Friday at 7 p.m.
