In its home opener, Portola’s varsity football team racked up points in the first half, and kept its lead through the second for a 46-20 win against the Weed Cougars. The win brought Portola’s record up to 2-1.
“I thought we improved from the previous week in many areas,” said Portola coach Steve Heskett. “The offensive line played very well, and (quarterback) Evan Leal had a huge game because of their efforts.”
“The real heroes of the game were the kids from Weed who made a 10-hour round-trip bus ride after the devastating week they had,” Heskett added.
