VALENCIA REFUSES TO LET UP 28-0

BY MATT HANLON

WESTMINSTER ♦ With a playoff spot already secured, Valencia could have taken it easy Friday night. Instead, the Tigers showed why they’re a playoff-bound team. Valencia wore down Pacifica with a persistent ground game and its usual steady defense in a 28-0 victory – the Tigers’ second shutout this season – at Bolsa Grande High.

“We played a good, clean game,” Valencia coach Mike Marrujo said. “It wasn’t real emotional, but I was really pleased the way we played, we ran the ball real well. … I feel real good where we’re at right now.” The Tigers (9-1, 5-0) didn’t draw a penalty in the game.

The win preserved their perfect Empire League record, a week after they clinched the league title and a CIF-SS Southwest Division playoff berth with a 39-36 win over Tustin.

Quarterback Pat Godoy ran 10 times for 69 yards and two touchdowns. He completed 6 of 8 passes for 53 yards. The Tigers took the lead on Godoy’s 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. He added a 32-yard touchdown run in the third. Jahquon Speed ran for a 4-yard touchdown in the second quarter and a 26-yard score in the third.

He finished with 87 yards rushing. The Mariners (2-8, 1-4) didn’t advance inside Valencia’s 40 in the second half. Marcus Tolbert led the Pacifica offense, rushing for 62 yards on 19 carries.
