The Tri-County All-Star Football game is a competition between the White Team (Napa, Marin and Petaluma’s best players) and the Blue Team (Northern Sonoma County’s best players). The battle covering from three counties took place on December 27 at Piner High School in Santa Rosa. The game benefited kids in foster care by raising awareness of the need during the holidays.
The game was tied at the end of the last quarter, and they were going call the game and the coaches would not allow that. They played into overtime and it would be Petaluma’s Greg Thomas the left footed kicker on Team White kicking a 19-yard field goal to defeat Team Blue, 43-40.
Players from representing Petaluma on the White Team are:
- 17 WR Hunter Williams 6’3 210 Petaluma
- 51 CTR Julian Lopez 5’11 230 Casa Grande
- 77 OL Justin Mahrt 6’4 235 Petaluma

UPDATE: Here is a video of the #Petaluma Market – it appears there was someone working stocking the shelves when the earthquake hit and the isles were rocking back and forth.
Last evening we experienced a 6.1 earthquake in Sonoma/Napa Counties with the epicenter being American Canyon. We were awoken in the early AM with our home moving back and forth a few feet and chandelier in our bedroom swinging back and forth.
We were concerned with the historic buildings downtown #Petaluma knowing they have been earthquake retrofitted in the pasts. So we drove downtown and looked over the historic buildings and fortunately there is no apparent visible outside damage to the building. We did walk through this historic Herold Building on Kentucky Street and did not see any visible structural damage to the inside of that building.
So while many were affected by this earthquake, mostly in the American Canyon and Napa area, our historic downtown seems unaffected.
Here are some YouTube Videos of the earthquake caught on tape that were recently released that shows what people were awoken to last night.
In this video you get the idea of how cars were jostled around in a parking lot.
