In a fund raising event Placer County Law Enforcement took on Nevada County Law Enforcement played in a benefit football game at Del Oro High School in Loomis, Sunday afternoon. In 95 degree heat the two teams went at it in a full contact match up. Just before the first half ended Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner felt comfortable with an eighteen point lead, he also felt Sheriff Keith Royal may be up to something.
“Right now Sheriff Royal has something up his sleeve. I do feel pretty confident with an 18- nothing lead before half time. But as you well know, he’s sneaky.”
Nevada County Undersheriff Henry Serrano says the two teams were going at it hard. He said it was all part of the Nevada County plan.
“First of all, this is a really exciting game. Both teams are playing their hearts out and they’re playing a great game. We’re just trying to lull them into a false sense of security before we pound them in the second half.”
All the proceeds from the game were to be given to the wounded veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. Good crowds were there to support their teams. The Placer County Guns won out over Nevada County Posse by a score of 33 to 8.
