August 24, 2018 (El Cajon) – Week two of ECM Friday Night Lights takes us to El Cajon for a huge early-season East County matchup between the Valhalla Norsemen and the West Hills Wolf Pack.  The Norsemen are coming off a 41-14 loss at University City last week, while the Pack comes back to San Diego carrying the momentum from a 20-3 win against Southwest El Centro.

Both teams went three and out on their first possessions and on their second drive, the Wolf Pack threatened and led us to the end of the first quarter scoreless

A costly near turnover in scoring range to open the second forced the black, white and purple to attempt the field goal.  Senior Jack Browning’s short kick was good to put West Hills on top 3-0 with just under 11 minutes remaining in the first half.  The Pack showed expert time management and towards the end of the half, junior quarterback Jordin Young, who was impressive on his feet all throughout the first half, ran it for a big gain downfield and at the goal line, he tossed it into senior Dylan Smith wide open in the end zone.  The extra point was good and West Hills went to the locker room up 10-0 over the Norsemen after Browning’s PAT.

In the third quarter, the Pack marched down the field again and junior Austin Peat punched it in at the one for another Wolf Pack touchdown.  Despite a monster kick return by junior Kegan Baker, Valhalla stayed off the board after their fake field goal attempt was unsuccessful and we ended the third with West Hills up 17-0.

The Norsemen eventually did get on the board after a great drive downfield.  Senior Kiare Worthy punched it in at the one-yard line to at least get Valhalla a touchdown in the loss.  Young who passed for 87 yards and a score rushed for over 100 yards on the ground added a 45-yard rushing touchdown run to put it away and hand the Norsemen a 0-2 start to the season.  West Hills wins this one 24-7 to move to 2-0 on the year.

UP NEXT
The Norsemen stay at home in the Grossmont League as they host the Matadors of Mount Miguel next week for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.  The Pack return to Santee to greet Sante Fe High from Santa Fe Springs in L.A. County at 7:00 p.m.

2018 EAST COUNTY PREP FOOTBALL

BY ADAM PAUL

UNIVERSITY CITY 41, VALHALLA 14

 The Norsemen who come into the season with a new coach in Mike Kasten who even though he is new to the head coach position isn’t new to Valhalla as he has served in the program for quite a few years and looking to instill new spirit into the program.

Unfortunately for Valhalla, they had the task of opening up against one of the top contenders in the County and also in Division III in the Centurions.

For the Centurions Gunnar Gray and Casey Granfors who are both over six feet tall posed a huge mismatch for the Valhalla defense and right away Gray took advantage as he found Granfor a deep pass in which he was able to scamper to the house to make it 7-0. The Centurions would go on to build their lead to 20-0 thanks to a couple more touchdown strikes by Gray to Jefferson and Granfors.

However, Valhalla was able to get back into the contest for a minute as Kiare Worthy fielded the kickoff and zipped his way past all the Centurion defenders for a 96-yard return and score to make it 20-7.

University City wasn’t having any of the closeness as they took advantage once again and Gray torched the Norsemen defense for a couple more touchdown strikes to give the Centurions a 34-7 lead.

Valhalla in the second half would strike first as Kegan Baker would punch his way into the end zone for a touchdown to make it 34-14. University City added
