Valencia Alencia Rolls but QB injured 31-13

PLACENTIA Valencia set an early tone with two quick touchdowns and were in control throughout in a 31-13 victory over Sonora in a first-round Southwest Division game Friday at Valencia High. The Tigers (8-3) won the coin flip against Edison to determine home field for the second round and will play host to the top-seeded Charges next Friday.

Valencia quarterback Jesse Godoy injured his right knee on a 5-yard run in the third quarter and spent the rest of the game sitting on a trainer´s table on the sideline. Tigers coach Mike Marrujo didn´t know if Godoy would be ready to play against Edison."I hope it´s just a sprain," Marrujo said.

Sonora (5-6) had the game´s first possession but fumbled the ball away on the third play. The Tigers took over on the Sonora 33-yard line, and Levi Perez scored on a 25-yard run three plays into the drive.On Valencia´s next possession, Perez ran for a 55-yard touchdown to make the score 14-0 less than four minutes into the contest.

Sonora came back and scored on a 55-yard pass from Kyle Mahlstede to Matthew Villasenor, but the Raiders couldn´t do much offensively from that point.Credit the Tigers defense, which sacked Mahlstede three times - two recorded by Jesse Gonzalez - and grabbed three interceptions.

For the second week in a row, Mahlstede put up impressive numbers in a losing effort. The senior completed 19 of 40 passes for 295 yards and a touchdown. Before leaving the game, Godoy completed eight of 15 passes for 73 yards and rushed for 89 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.
