(Mustangs Host Desert Mirage Rams)
Mustangs Off To A Hot Start
In this “Game of the week” brought to you by The Hemet & San Jacinto Chronicle, we will take you to West Valley as they welcome Desert Mirage into their house and maintain the momentum they have after their big victory in the first game of the season. Last week West Valley put on an impressive onslaught against Shadow Hills High School. The Mustangs put 40 points on the board with a huge 28 point third quarter. West Valleys’ defense was key in this game coming up with four interceptions during the game. West Valley came out on top of the game with a score of 40-34 and started the season equal with San Jacinto, Hemet, & Beaumont who all earn victories in the first week of the season.
Right now West Valley is ranked 458 in the state of California. Their Opponent Desert Mirage comes into West Valley ranked 938, which on paper means that West Valley should leave this game victorious, but Friday Night Lights are a beautiful thing as you never know what’s going to happen on the football field. Desert Mirage brings in a new starting Quarterback to the team and a new Head Coach, which means the system could be completely different than what West Valley saw last year when they beat Desert Mirage 30-16.
West Valley should leave the game with two “W’s” in the win column and help build positive momentum before league play starts in a few weeks. Other Mountain Pass League matchups this week include San Jacinto High(94) @ Woodrow Wilson High School (185), Beaumont (265) vs Pacific (802), Citrus Hill (95) vs Palm Springs (260), Tahquitz (710) @ Indio (965), Hemet (509) @ Vista Del Lago (629). Keep an eye on the Citrus Hill game this will be the first time they have played this season. It will be the first opportunity for the other schools in the league to get a scouting report on them as San Jacinto & Citrus Hills appear to be the top of the division. West Valley, Hemet, Beaumont, & Tahquitz are looking to dethrone the two powerhouses in the division and need to gather as much information as possible to do that. I would expect that San Jacinto & Citrus Hill aren’t even running the same offense and defense they will be when league play begins, to maintain dominance in the division.
Show some support for the Valley and show up to the game at West Valley High School at 7 o’clock tonight. A recap of the game will be available in next week’s paper. It’s important to show up to these games and buy tickets; it helps the high schools fund sports programs for the kids to participate in all year long.
