Football Team’s Struggles Continue

Jared Cordero, Sports Writer

SVHS’s Varsity football team has had some trouble in past years with the longest winning streak coming 5 years ago after we dropped divisions mid season, going on a 3 game winning streak. However with the new slogan, “in the valley we stay turn,” energy and hopes have been high, especially for the rivalry homecoming game against Justin Siena.

The stands were packed on Friday night and the dragons were prepared to take on the rival Braves. The Braves jumped out to a quick 7 – 0 lead and held that lead for the duration of the first quarter. They continued to apply pressure and quickly scored early in the second making their lead 14-0.

The dragons continued to fight in the second quarter when Sophomore Trent Ohman threw a 34 yard touchdown pass to Senior Tate Baker cutting the lead to just 7 points.

In the last seconds of the second quarter the dragons came knocking on Justin’s door, however a dropped pass in the end zone kept them at a deficit of seven going into the half. 

After the homecoming halftime festivities the Dragons came back out hoping to catch up and defeat the Braves. However that was not result as the Dragons gave up three crushing scores in the third quarter. Although the defensive intensity was high for both teams during the fourth quarter as both teams failed to score. Trent Ohman threw for his second interception of the night in the fourth quarter, capitalizing Justin Siena’s win over the Dragons, who took the loss with a final score of 35-7 putting them at a record of 0-5 this season and 0-2 in league play.
