The Signal - - SPORTS - By Ha­ley Sawyer Sig­nal Sports Ed­i­tor

Valencia foot­ball is rolling, and it doesn’t look like they’re slow­ing down any time soon.

“There’s not many holes on the team when it comes to of­fense, de­fense and spe­cial teams,” said Golden Val­ley coach Dan Kel­ley. “One of the bet­ter Valencia team’s I’ve seen with a great coach­ing staff.”

The Vik­ings are com­ing off a 42-14 win over Hart. Mykael Wright hauled in three passes for 102 yards and two touch­downs.

The two-headed mon­ster of run­ning backs Moises Haynes and Jay­vaun Wil­son com­bined for 202 yards and two touch­downs.

Con­versely, the Griz­zlies (3-3, 0-1) strug­gled against Sau­gus, los­ing 17-0.

“We’ve got com­peti­tors out here, so we’re not dwelling on last week,” Kel­ley said. “We’re try­ing to move for­ward. The morale is up.”

Line­backer/run­ning back DJ Turner and de­fen­sive back/re­ceiver DeGabriel Floyd saw lim­ited ac­tion against the Cents, but should be set to go for the en­tirety of tonight’s game.

The two will help sta­bi­lize Golden Val­ley’s of­fense against a Vik­ings pun­ish­ing Vik­ings de­fense.

“Run­ning ball ef­fec­tively, throw­ing ball ef­fec­tively is the se­cret to play­ing Valencia, the se­cret to play­ing ev­ery­body,” said Kel­ley.
