Woodcreek’s Pee Wee youth football team gave up two big plays but tightened after each one and recorded its second consecutive shutout, 14-0 over Sacramento in a Sierra Football and Cheer game Saturday at Woodcreek High School.

Sacramento had a 60-yard pass to move to the Woodcreek 10-yard line and a 30-yard run, but the Junior Timberwolves (2-0) shut them down each time.

Kody Tagert had three sacks and blocked a punt for the Timberwolves. Armando Angulo made four tackles, including two sacks, and forced a fumble. Sean Wilton had two tackles and two sacks, and Kyle Mills had four tackles and a sack.

Two Woodcreek drives stalled in the Sacramento red zone in the first half, but Carson March scored on a four-yard run in the third, and Brody Stephens’ conversion run gave the Timberwolves a 7-0 lead. Stephens scored on a two-yard run in the fourth period, and Colton Baron passed to Josh Pontes in the back of the end zone for the PAT.

March carried 14 times for 117 yards, including a 60-yarder in the first half, and Stephens had 80 yards in nine carries.

Granite Bay 7, Lincoln 6 (OT) — The Grizzlies scored on their second play in overtime on a pass from Josh Farr to Jade Foddrill, and Blake Peterson fought his way into the end zone to score the extra point.

The Zebras also scored on their second play in OT on a pass. Lincoln chose to kick and go for the win, but it was wide right and short.

The game matched the 2010 Junior Pee Wee Division 1 (Lincoln) and Division 2 (Granite Bay) champions.

Granite Bay shut down the Lincoln sweep, and Nolan Stabbert’s interception with 3:01 left stopped a Lincoln drive. Each team committed two turnovers.

“This was a hard-fought game between two evenly matched teams,” Grizzlies coach Jeff Powers said. “We are fortunate to have come away with a win. We have a lot of respect for the Lincoln Pee Wee squad.”

Antelope 7, Roseville 0 — The Titans scored with 30 seconds left to beat the Tigers.

Dillon Ruddell, Scott Sinclair and Andrew Reyes, running behind linemen Zane Mosher, Kyle Alves, Richard Porter and Danny Garcia, drove to the Antelope 3-yard line, but the march stalled. Anthony Payne also caught a 20-yard pass from quarterback Ty Donahue.

Roseville’s defense recovered three fumbles. An interception by Sinclair stopped an Antelope drive in the second half, and Mauricio Vargas had several tackles.

Susac and Ethan Astor combined for 10 completions in 18 attempts for 134 yards. Willford caught four passes for 51 yards, and Brock Thawley had three receptions for 30 yards.
