The Signal - - SPORTS - By Ha­ley Sawyer Sig­nal Sports Editor See VIKES, B2

Va­len­cia foot­ball will be back to play­ing a Cal­i­for­nia foot­ball team this week af­ter trounc­ing Chaparral of Scotts­dale, Ari­zona last Fri­day.

The Vik­ings turn their at­ten­tion to New­bury Park of Thou­sand Oaks, a team that is com­ing off a 42-20 loss to West­lake.

The Panthers (2-1) bring with them quar­ter­back Cameron Ris­ing, who was in­jured for last year’s matchup be­tween the two schools.

Ac­cord­ing to MaxPreps, Ris­ing has com­pleted 40 of 59 passes for 742 yards in three games and has thrown for nine touch­downs and just one in­ter­cep­tion. He’s rushed for an ad­di­tional 186 yards and five touch­downs on 17 car­ries.

Josh Madi­son, a run­ning back

com­mit­ted to Iowa State will be another threat on the Pan­ther’s of­fense. The se­nior has tal­lied 406 yards and five touch­downs on 41 car­ries this sea­son.

The two should pro­vide a chal­lenge for Va­len­cia’s swarm­ing de­fense that has weapons in Josh DeNeal, Ben Sey­mour, Josh Wash­ing­ton and Reilly Royce.

The Vik­ings (2-0) are ranked first in Di­vi­sion 2 ac­cord­ing to this week’s CIF-South­ern Sec­tion poll and will be bring­ing a solid quar­ter­back of their own. Con­nor Downs threw for 249 yards and two touch­downs last week.

Moises Haynes ran for 197 yards on 16 car­ries for two touch­downs of his own and now has a to­tal of 369 yards on 37 car­ries this sea­son in two games.
