Even with a rain storm and cold weather, a large crowd showed up to the game to support our Valor Eagles against Heritage High School. Within the first two minutes of the game, Christian McCaffrey scored a touchdown putting us ahead by 7 points. On Valor’s second possession, Marcus Wilson scored his first touchdown of the night on a long pass play making it 14 to 0. On the very next Valor possession, Christian had a long run ending in a touchdown. Heritage came back to score a touchdown leaving the score at 21 to 7 at the end of the first quarter. Half way through the second quarter Marcus scored again on a 79 yard touchdown pass, putting Valor up 28 to 7.
Not long after, Marcus scored his third touchdown of the night right before halftime. In the third quarter, Trey Hanley had a 50 yard touchdown reception and Stone Watson had another to make the score 49 to 7 in favor of Valor. Dylan McCaffrey scored the Eagles final touchdown of the night to make the score 56 to 7. With a tough loss last week, the players worked hard and came out with focus for the night. Junior defensive tackle Turner Henington talked about their motivation and keys to coming away with a win. “The pace never let down,” continuing on he explained “we ran full speed the entire time and never dropped the tempo.” Despite the harsh conditions outside, the football team came out fighting. Working together and never giving up, they showed their strength and dedication to the game. Hopefully this means the start of another winning streak!
