Valencia secures share of league title 49-14

By TOM CONNOLLY
Special to the Register

PLACENTIA - Wes Fletcher and Ray Magee each scored three touchdowns to lead Valencia to a 49-14 victory over Cypress on Thursday night at Valencia High to earn at least a share of the Empire League championship. Coin tosses were scheduled to take place at Kennedy High following Valencia's and Kennedy's games, to break a possible three-way tie. Kennedy beat Loara, 35-7, and is tied with Valencia at 9-1 overall and 4-1 in the league. Orange Lutheran (8-1 and 3-1) plays tonight.

According to Valencia's athletic director Kevin McConnell the results of the coin flips would not be announced until they were reported to the CIF. After the Tigers were penalized on their first two plays from scrimmage, Fletcher raced 92 yards for a touchdown giving Valencia a 7-0 lead. On the Centurions' ensuing possession Magee intercepted a Cypress pass and returned it 47 yards for a score to increase the lead to 14-0. Later in the quarter, Luis Cruz tossed a 15-yard touchdown pass to Magee as the Tigers led, 21-0, after 9 minutes of play.

However, Cypress countered with two Matt Kanuse touchdown passes to Anthony Jackson in the first six-minutes of the second quarter and trimmed the Tigers' lead to 21-14. Valencia regrouped later in the quarter as Fletcher scored on a 7-yard run, putting the Tigers up 28-14 at the half."We flattened out after we led 21-0, but we picked up the intensity and played with emotion," Valencia coach Mike Marrujo said.

Valencia scored three touchdowns in the first six minutes of the third-quarter to break the game open. Fletcher returned the second-half kickoff 82 yards to the Centurions 1-yard line. He scored on the next play. Four plays following Magee's second interception, Cruz scored on a 4-yard run. Cruz then threw a 20-yard TD pass to Magee.

The junior suffered a concussion pass4sure PW0-105 in the second quarter and watched the second half from the pass4sure PRINCE2 sideline. Switzer relieved Godoy at the start of the third and the offense was unable to produce any points in his first five drives. pass4sure PMI-001
