A Special Saturday Night Lights
Perhaps the best moment of Saturday's night SCL matchup between Petaluma and Sonoma was not the 42 first half points the Trojans put on the board. Or the stout defense that gave up just six points and limited the Dragons throughout. Or the final score of 56-6 which moved the Trojans to 5-1 on the season.
Instead, it was the postgame gathering of the two teams at the center circle to pay tribute to Carson Pforsich, the Analy wide receiver who suffered a freak back injury last week. With the help of the cheer teams, the two teams sent their best wishes and thoughts to Carson and family as he struggles to rehabilitate. It was great to see the whole group unified to support Carson. If you are interested in donating to the family, you can do so at any Exchange Bank into the "Carson Pforsich Rehab Fund."
For the Trojans, they now look ahead to an away match up at Piner before hosting Healdsburg at Casa on Oct 13th.
