EL DORADO HILLS, CA - Trojans head coach Eric Cavaliere had much to smile about after his Oak Ridge team knocked off the Vista del Lago Eagles 33-22 in their home opener during Friday's News10 Game of the Week.
Quarterback Jason Samuels was a standout for the Trojans on Friday night, beginning the game with a 24-yard touchdown pass to Lance Berringer, giving Oak Ridge the early 6-0 lead.
The Eagles marched back as quarterback Aaron Young hit Logan Smith 19-yards for the score, then converting the extra point to give Vista the 7-6 lead.
Oak Ridge went on a scoring strike, with touchdowns from Bobby Gatta and another Samuels hookup to Preston Dean from nine yards out, as the Trojans pulled away.
With the win, Oak Ridge (1-0) will host the Rocklin Thunder next Friday. The Thunder defeated Los Banos 27-19 on Friday night.
