Surging Corsairs prepare for final home game

By Ray Hamill — With two games remaining on the schedule, it’s safe to say the Corsairs have already assured themselves of a successful comeback season.

After not fielding a football team for back-to-back years, College of the Redwoods returned to action with a bang this fall and will look to close out with two more wins and a conference championship.

CR (6-2) has won six straight games overall and four straight in the American-Pacific 7 conference, including comfortable 47-28 win over De Anza.

They host a Gavilan team that has dropped seven straight games in a non-conference showdown at the Redwood Bowel on Saturday at 1 p.m., before traveling to play Feather River in what is likely to be a true championship meeting next week.

The high-flying Golden Eagles are 8-0 (3-0 in conference) and will look to join CR atop the standings with a win at De Anza on Saturday.

Interestingly, next week’s game could feature a pair of former Fortuna Huskies at quarterback.

2021 Fortuna graduate Max Hough is enjoying an outstanding season as starting QB for the Corsairs and threw for five touchdowns and ran in for another last weekend, while 2020 Huskies graduate Daeden Taylor has seen plenty of game time this season in a back-up role for the Golden Eagles and has been a threat running the ball.

In the meantime, CR will look to take care of business against Gavilan.

The Rams have not won since opening weekend and have been losing their games by an average or more than 30 points.
