The Fallbrook High football team will play its home opener Friday (Sept. 8) after beginning the season with a pair of road losses that couldn't have been more different.

The Warriors kicked off their season Aug. 25 at Westview and were never in the game, getting shutout 41-0. In their second game, Sept. 1 at Del Norte, the Warriors battled throughout and led late in the fourth quarter before the Nighthawks scored with 27 seconds left in the game to secure a 27-21 victory.

Fallbrook head coach Darius Pickett told his team after the tough loss to Del Norte that he "loved the effort."
