Outgunned by Center High's men in white, Dixon High's men in black dropped their initial playoff game Friday night, 42-0. The game was played in Dixon, and this marks the end of DHS's season.
Center High (located in Antelope) dominated from the first, attaining a 16-0 score during the first quarter. The DHS Rams found it difficult to sustain drives. To their credit, the Rams never gave up, playing hard throughout the game.
The temperatures were cold, but fortunately it hadn't rained enough to make the field muddy.
Rams' player Chad Baptiste was apparently injured and was taken off the field on a stretcher late in the game.
It appeared to this observer that Center had an advantage in more larger-bodied players.
Here are over 40 photos from the game. They are in the same sequence as when they were shot.
The Rams can be proud of a successful season.
