Villa Park tailbacks bug Valencia, 36-18

By ADAM MAYA
The Orange County Register

PLACENTIA - As Villa Park coach Pat Mahoney approached the Valencia coaching staff at midfield after the game, he almost seemed apologetic. "We had three little gnats," he said. "You couldn't see them." Valencia definitely saw the backs of the Spartans running backs jerseys, however. Running backs Steven Muñoz, Johnny Privitelli and Anthony Privitelli combined for 423 yards rushing and four touchdowns in the Spartans' 36-18 nonleague victory Friday night against No. 10 Valencia at Valencia High.

All to Mahoney's surprise. "Yeah, I am. I really have a lot of respect for them," he said. "I think maybe they were a little *censored*y after last week's win (against Brea Olinda)."
The three running backs played what seemed like a game of who can top who. And Muñoz might have won, on a defensive play no less. In the third quarter, he sprinted about 50 yards to make a touchdown-saving tackle. After Valencia (1-1) scored a touchdown to trail 26-11, the 5-foot-10 Muñoz broke free for a 73-yard scoring run for the Spartans (1-0). In the first half, Anthony Privitelli, listed at 5-foot-7, ignited the Spartans' double wing offense with touchdown runs of 75 and 52 yards. He finished with 176 rushing yards on just five carries. Johnny Privitelli, listed at 5-foot-6, had a 42-yard touchdown run and finished with 143 yards rushing.

With Villa Park running on all three of its cylinders, Spartans' quarterback Andrew O'Connell attempted just six passes. In the third quarter, he found Trent Roberts for a 31-yard touchdown. Despite falling behind early, Valencia stuck with running back Wes Fletcher, who was coming off a 298-yard performance last week but was playing with a bruised thigh. Fletcher, an all-CIF sophomore last season, ran for 145 yards on 20 carries, including a 9-yard touchdown. He was held to under 10 yards, however, in all of his carries except for a 46-yard gain, in which he was caught by Muñoz. Tigers quarterback Marcus Beckman, under pressure all night by a blitzing Spartans defense, completed nine of 18 passes for 92 yards.

In 2005, Valencia defeated Villa Park, 17-0, in what was the Spartans' second game and the Tigers' first. Before that game, Valencia saw Villa Park run all over its Week 0 opponent. The Tigers then held Villa Park to 44 yards rushing. Coach Mahoney said not playing a Week 0 game might have benefited his team. "We've been getting ready for them all summer."

BREA - Wes Fletcher rushed for a career-high 298 yards and three touchdowns to lead Valencia to a 30-12 victory over Brea Olinda in a nonleague game Friday at Brea Olinda High. Fletcher scored on runs of 73, 98 and 1 yards in the first-half as the Tigers, the No.10 ranked team in the county, scored 24 points in the first quarter to break the game open. "This is a great rivalry, and this was a nice win for us, but we still have room for improvement," Fletcher said.

On the first play after he opening kickoff, Fletcher ran around right end, broke three tackles and raced 73 yards for a touchdown. Moments later, Marcus Beckman tossed a 5-yard TD pass to DJ Russell to increase the Tigers' lead to 14-0. On the first play after Logan Sewell's 79-yard punt, Fletcher gave Valencia a 21-0 lead when he outran the Wildcats' secondary en route to a 98-yard touchdown run. Russell added a 32-yard field goal and the Tigers led 24-0 after the first quarter. Fletcher scored on a 1-yard TD run in the second quarter to propel Valencia to a 30-0 halftime lead. Ezekiel Young scored for Brea Olinda on a 40-yard TD run in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Jeff Fleming tossed an 8-yard touchdown pass to Dakota Hopkins to complete the Wildcats' scoring.
