The Portola High School football team lost its home Mountain Valley League game against Burney Friday night by a score of 48-20.
The Tigers fell to 0-9 overall on the season and 0-5 in league play.
Prior to the game, Portola honored its seven seniors with a senior recognition night for the final home game of the year.
Seniors Brandon Carr, Edgar Cuevas, Dillon Gunderson, Kodi Lowdermilk, Brandon McGarrity, Mikayla Quesenberry and Dominic Vukobradovich were all recognized.
Portola came flying out of the gate on the first play from scrimmage when Lowdermilk took the ball 77 yards to the house. A missed extra point gave the Tigers an early 6-0 lead.
The rest of the first half would be all about Burney however, as the Raiders put up 34 points in the first two quarters to take a commanding lead at halftime.
In the second half, the Tigers offense reawakened and the home squad found life, when Lowdermilk found the end zone once again and followed with a successful two-point conversion.
The Raiders would answer twice more to jump out 48-14 in the late going, putting Portola in an even bigger hole.
Late in the fourth quarter, the Tigers struck again. A long ball from quarterback Eric Jacobson to Vukobradovich set the Portola offense in excellent field position.
On the ensuing play, Lowdermilk continued his big night and found his way to the promised land for the Tigers’ final home score of the season.
Portola could not finish the comeback and fell 48-20.
