Valencia Football Team Squeaks Its Way Into Second Round Of CIF Playoffs

sportslocalThe Valencia football team is lucky to be alive in the CIF Southern Section Northern Division playoffs.

Hart and Canyon had no such luck in the first round of the playoffs.

 

Valencia’s Zack Tartabull intercepted a 2-point conversion pass and preserved a 28-27 win over Thousand Oaks to advance to the second round.

Hart lost, 23-15, to an upstart Hueneme team. Hart quarterback C.J. Reyes threw for 193 yards and two touchdowns. But Hueneme running back Trashaun Nixon scored two touchdowns, one on a 65-yard run in the third quarter.

Canyon got steamrolled by Moorpark, 30-0. Canyon quarterback Jonathan Jerozal threw for 161 yards, but the offense sputtered most of the game.

The Santa Clarita Christian football team took another step toward repeating as CIF Southern Section 8-man Division I champions. Santa Clarita Christian scored 34 points in the first quarter and beat Hesperia Christian, 66-21, in a game that was called because of a mercy rule.

Colin Keoshian scored four touchdowns and rushed for 230 yards. He also completed three passes for 48 yards and a touchdown.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
