Yorba Linda notches a first 12-6

By BRUCE BOURQUIN
SPECIAL TO THE REGISTER

PLACENTIA Alex Bernstein was at the right places at the right times Friday night, and he helped carry Yorba Linda to its first league victory in school history, a 12-6 Empire League triumph over Valencia at Valencia High.

The junior quarterback and defensive back connected with Paul Najarian for a 25-yard TD pass for the game´s first score, returned an interception 65 yards for another TD and picked off an overthrown ball on the last drive for the Tigers (0-2, 3-3) to seal the biggest game in the firstyear program´s history for the Mustangs (1-2, 3-4).
 
"It´s such a relief to get that first win," said Bernstein, who passed for 92 yards and rushed for 51 more on nine carries.

"They´re going to be our rivals for the next (several) years. It´s nice to get out there and take it to them ... everyone starts on both offense and defense. We´re exhausted, but we do it because we love this game."
