Heading out on the road for Friday, Oct. 18 Valley Oak League action, the trip to Tracy was successful for the football Mustangs.

The varsity team improved to 4-1 in league play with a solid 49-21 win over the host Jaguars while the JV team continued to play well, upending the Kimball junior varsity in a 51-21 decision.

Meanwhile, at home, it was a big win for the freshmen.

Capping a perfect 9-0 season with a 55-7 victory on Thursday night, the youngest Oakdale football players scored early and often against Kimball in their Oct. 17 contest.

They started it out with an 18-yard run by Carlos Baez, followed by the PAT from Brock Osmundson. Other scores quickly followed, Baez again from six yards out, kick good; 37-yard run by Garrison Gerber, kick good. An 80-yard run by Baez, kick good, broke the game open.

Also scoring were Chris Thomas from four yards out, kick good; Osmundson on a 29-yard run with the kick good, a 15-yard keeper from quarterback Mick Merzon, kick no good; and capping the Oakdale onslaught was Zach Stott on a 10-yard run with Osmundson adding the kick for the 55-7 final score.
