State-ranked No. 4 American River College beats rival Sac City in thriller - Sacramento Bee (blog)

American River College, state-ranked No. 4, slugged out a 38-23 victory over rival Sacramento City on Friday night to break in refurbished Hughes Stadium, a staple venue in the region for 84 years and sparkling again with a $13 million facelift of new aneminities, paint and a field turf.

Ranked third in Northern California, ARC (2-0) was led by Devontae Booker, the sophomore tailback from Grant High School who chugged for 170 yards and had a 95-yard kickoff return to open the game. The Beavers won their 20th consecutive game dating back to the 2010 season.

Booker had three touchdown ruins, including a 41 yarder to seal it with 6:44 to go in the fourth quarter after a Zane Petty interception. Booker's 3-yard scoring run game Sac City a 32-23 lead with 9:07 to play.

Sac City (0-2) scored three points in the second half.

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
