The West Hills Falcons (0-1) will have a tough first road trip of the season, facing a Yuba College team with a 2-0 record and a No. 23 state ranking.
The 49ers are coming off a 22-9 win at Cabrillo after opening the season with a 28-26 home win against Monterey Peninsula.
Last week, the Falcons had leads of 14-0 and 28-14 over Los Medanos (2-0), but couldn't overcome their miscues and lost 34-28.
"I was proud of the way we competed for four quarters," said first-year head coach Justin Berna.
"We had some great individual performances. We just need to fix the little things, clean-up our mistakes, and get ready for another very good opponent."
On offense, the Falcons were led by freshman QB Myron Norfleet, who passed for 200 yards (30-for-46) and ran for three touchdowns (14 carries, 89 yds).
Freshman WR Eugene Wells caught 11 passes for 57 yards. His 11 receptions were one behind the state leader.
Sophomore DL Michael Lightsey recorded seven tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and a pass breakup. Sophomore LB Josh Parks also added seven tackles with a forced fumble.
