Live Oak 28, Colusa 7

It’s been 12 years since Live Oak has captured any form of league championship in football. 

That all changed Friday night thanks to a 28-7 road victory for the Lions over Colusa, completing an undefeated Sacramento Valley League season and regular-season championship. 

The last Live Oak outright league title was 2007. 

Live Oak (8-2, 6-0  SVL) finished the season with six straight victories and more than likely clinched a home first-round playoff game in its return to the postseason for the first time since 2012. 

Sutter 33, Orland 7

Sutter wrapped up its fourth straight Butte View League championship with a 33-7 victory on senior night Friday in Sutter.

Cory McIntyre rushed for a team-high 222 yards and two touchdowns in his final regular season home game for the Huskies (9-1, 5-0). McIntyre also booted a pair of field goals against Orland, including one from 47 yards. 

Thomas Heidrick and Colton Dillabo also scored touchdowns for Sutter. 

Defensively, Max Gipson recorded four sacks to lead the Huskies, who are almost assuredly headed for a one or two seed Saturday when the Northern Section D-III playoffs officially get announced following the 9 a.m. meeting in Red Bluff.

Gridley 35,

Wheatland 22

The Bulldogs defeated the visiting Pirates 35-22 behind a standout performance by Arden Anderson who rushed for 290 yards on 25 carries and four touchdowns. Cameron Carr added one touchdown and rushed for 45 yards. 

The defense was led by a trio of Bullodogs, Chris Richins (7 tackles), Arden Anderson (1 interception) and Shay Carr (1 interception). 

The Pirate offense was led by Tariq Parker with 183 yards on 21 carries and one touchdown. Errin Sahagon rounded out the scoring for Wheatland with two touchdowns on the ground. 

Defensively the team was led by Devon Belcher who racked up 13 tackles on the night. 

With the win Gridley closes out the regular season with a 5-5 overall record and 2-3 in the BVL. Despite the loss, Wheatland (6-4, 3-2) awaits the announcement section playoff seeding on Saturday.
