Week 7: West Hills Wolf Pack 47, El Cajon Valley Braves 13
Week 7 of the Prep Pigskin Report has come to an end as the West Hills Wolf Pack took on the El Cajon Valley Braves in the first Grossmont Valley League match.
In the first quarter, the Wolf Pack started off strong.
Quarterback Jordin Young sneaked over to the goal line for nine yards, putting his team on the board first.
El Cajon Valley tried to respond shortly after but to no avail, as West Hills’ Trent Oberg came up with an interception to end the drive.
In the second quarter, one play had everyone confused, including wide receiver Clarence Johnson.
In what appeared to be a dead play after an incomplete pass, but the whistle was never blown. With instruction from the sideline, Johnson scooped up the ball and ran it to the house for a 75-yard Braves touchdown.
But the trickery didn’t stop the mighty Wolf Pack.
Izayah Fussel had a reception up the field helps to set up the blue and black team with a first-and-goal. Then, Young found Travis Deal near the end zone to put away another six points for the night.
The final score for this one was 47-13, West Hills.
Next week, West Hills will host the Santana Sultans at home, while El Cajon Valley celebrates Homecoming against the Castle Park Trojans.
Week 7 of the Prep Pigskin Report takes us back to El Cajon Valley High School, where the Braves host the West Hills Wolf Pack in a conference game.
El Cajon Valley is rested up and ready to hit the field once again following a bye in Week 6. Meanwhile, West Hills is recovering from a 10-point loss against its rival El Capitan.
It’s been a while since these two teams last met on the gridiron. The Wolf Pack last played the Braves in 2015 during the regular season. In that matchup, West Hills beat El Cajon Valley in an away game, 38-13. Now three years later, the Braves are not only hoping to seek redemption but to also win the first game of their season.
Quarterback Joe Malone will the lead the red and black team once again along with all-around player Damarius Hyde.
On defense, Hyde will have to keep an eye out for West Hills quarterback Jordin Young. Not only does he have a good arm, but he is also good on his feet. So far this season, he has three touchdown receptions and has carried the ball over the goal line seven times.
