Dunsmuir 39, Princeton 0
A week after losing a close home game against defending section champion Butte Valley, Princeton was outmatched on the road by Dunsmuir.
"That's one of the better 8-man teams I've seen in years," Eagles coach Bryan Lex said.
The loss dropped Princeton to 1-2 after opening the season against three playoff teams with a combined record of 30-5 last year.
For the last three seasons the Eagles have played a brutal early season schedule, so the losing record to start the season doesn't worry Lex.
"We use it as a measuring stick. It helps when we get into league and hopefully in the playoffs when we play those teams again," he said.
Oscar Espinoza rushed 12 times for 48 yards, but Princeton had a hard time moving the ball against a bigger, quicker Tigers team.
Biggs 52, Williams 0
