SALINAS, Calif. (KION) - In one of the most highly anticipated high school football matchups of the season, Palma hosted Salinas at Rabobank Stadium.
The Cowboys entered the rivalry showdown on a five-game winning streak, while the Chieftains looked to bounce back after a tough 14-7 loss to Soquel the week before.
Seniors Nolan Borel and Noah Gonzales led the charge for the Cowboys. Both found the endzone twice in Salinas' dominant 34-14 victory over Palma.
The win guarantees at least a share of the Gabilan title heading into the final week of the regular season. Salinas stands at 5-0 in league play, while Soquel is right behind at 4-1. The Cowboys can win the title outright with a win over Hollister next week.
