Canyon puts up 35 points to drop former Foothill League foe
The Canyon Cowboys and Burbank Bulldogs brought some nostalgia back to the Santa Clarita Valley in an original Foothill League matchup.
Canyon got off to a fast 7-0 start, scoring on their third play from scrimmage on Isreal Cabrera’s 50-yard catch and run.
The teams would trade blows heading into the half, knotted at 14 points apiece.
Canyon got a huge lift to start the second on Markeill Taylor’s interception which cleared the way for a Liam Cabrera touchdown catch — his first of two for the night.
Miles Fallin had three touchdown passes while Myron Mcafee added a late touchdown run to lift the Cowboys to a 35-21 victory.
The Vikings looked strong from start to finish in a big 42-12 victory over Highland.
Stone Jackson rushed for a touchdown, aiding Valencia in a game to control the clock as they pushed themselves to a 2-1 record on the young season.
The Vikings positioned themselves nicely before Foothill League play starts in October.
The Indians continued to show off their strong offense and defense with a 40-7 drumming of Muir High School.
Nelson James led the Indians offense with two touchdowns during the game as a stellar defense picked up speed after allowing an early Muir touchdown.
The defense eventually shut them out for the remainder of the game.
The Indians face another stiff test next week as they take on Santiago (3-1) at College of the Canyons.
The Centurions were looking to get back to .500 before handing Ventura their first loss of the season, but things did not go as planned.
The game started as a back-and-forward affair, but Ventura eventually took over, putting up 48 points while stalling the Saugus offense in route to a 48-14 victory.
West Ranch attack goes dry in loss to Thousand Oaks
Thousand Oaks would defeat their second Foothill League team of the season, this time in a very low-scoring 14-0 game over West Ranch.
The Wildcats offense failed to amount much of an attack — to the disappointment of fans — after putting up 43 points against Knight a week earlier.
The road may get slightly easier for the Wildcats though as next week they take on Oxnard (1-1).
