Valencia looks solid in victory over Loara 35-7

By BRUCE BOURQUIN
SPECIAL TO OCVARSITY.COM

PLACENTIA Valencia stayed alive in a late bid for a CIF playoff berth Friday night at Bradford Stadium in a 35-7 romp over Loara.

The Tigers improved to 2-2 in the Empire League (4-5 overall) and must finish at least third in the league to clinch a berth. They are in a two-team race with Kennedy (2-2). "We┬┤re in good shape," Valencia coach Mike Marrujo said. "We have a shot."

Steve Lagovi scored four touchdowns in the first half and rushed for 179 yards. Greg Hammond also had a monster first half with three catches for 36 yards, a fumble recovery and a blocked punt that led to a touchdown.

The Saxons (4-5, 0-4) saw the Tigers defense sack quarterback Michael Schneider four times. There were also two interceptions despite the Tigers missing four starters because of injuries.

"There was a lot of good blocking up front," Marrujo said. "The kids that filled in for our starters played real well." Valencia quarterback Robert Mata went 12-for-12 passing for 156 yards and a touchdown.

Valencia won its 75th Homecoming game.
