Fresno not flattered – Fresno, after going 9-1 overall and 5-0 in the North Yosemite League, was stuck with a No. 5 seed in D-III behind Hanford (9-1), Memorial (7-3), Tehachapi (7-2) and Bakersfield Christian (7-3).

“My Dad (the late Raymond Reyes Sr.) taught me if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all,” Warriors coach Ray Reyes said. “So I’m going to honor that request.”

Fresno will open for the second year in a row against No. 12 Golden Valley (4-6), this time at McLane Stadium Friday. The Warriors, as a No. 9 seed, won 20-14 on the No. 8 Bulldogs’ field last year.

No. 16 Fresno 21, Roosevelt 14

Playing before a packed house on hand for the annual Little Big Game, the Warriors completed an undefeated run through the North Yosemite League with the help of two Lee Major second-half touchdowns.

Major’s game-winner was a 25-yarder. He also had a touchdown catch just after halftime.

The section 16th-ranked Warriors (9-1, 5-0) never trailed and got on the scoreboard first thanks to quarterback Khory Day’s 68-yard touchdown run.
