Cruz passes Valencia to victory over Katella 38-0

By MATT RYAN
Special to the Register

PLACENTIA - The fireworks display at halftime of Friday's homecoming game for Valencia was nothing compared with the fireworks the Tigers produced on the field. Quarterback Luis Cruz's four first-half touchdown passes helped No. 9 Valencia (6-0, 1-0) down Katella, 38-0, in the Empire League opener for both teams.

"I haven't had many first halves like that," Cruz said. "My receivers were making plays, my linemen did a fine job protecting me. "Without them it wasn't possible." Cruz finished the game with five touchdown passes - two to wide receiver Ray Magee. "Me and (Cruz) have a great relationship on the field," Magee said.

Katella (3-3, 0-1) was hampered by four first-half turnovers. All of them occurred on fumbles on the center-to-quarterback exchange. The Knights trailed at halftime, 31-0. The Tigers defense, which came into Friday's game giving up only 6.8 points per game, recorded its fourth shutout of the season. Valencia will be on the road next week for an interleague showdown with Kennedy. "We have to get ready this week for (Kennedy) and keep this thing rolling," Cruz said.
