VALLEY SOARS TO SEASON OPENING VICTORY

CAMPBELL, OH – In a ‘Battle of the Fields’ at John Knapick Field in Campbell, the Valley Christian Eagles took advantage of Campbell Memorial miscues en route to a 36-6 victory on Friday night.

After a scoreless first quarter which included Campbell getting two turnovers on their first two drives, Valley Christian got on the board first as Campbell’s special teams botched a punt and Cam Davenport was there to scoop it up for the touchdown, with the two-point conversion to make it 8-0. The Red Devils, led by senior quarterback and Chaney transfer Kayvon Moore, had a promising drive down the field, but it ended when Moore threw an interception to Tyree Washington to end the half.

The Eagles would then explode in the third quarter as DeSean Lindsey bursted off for a 55-yard touchdown run, making the score 16-0 with the two-point conversion. After a long 52-yard touchdown pass from Joey Batista to make the score 22-0, Campbell was able to make one of their few highlights of the night. Kayvon Moore took the kickoff and broke through lanes on his way to a 90-yard kickoff return touchdown as it was 22-6 with the failed two-point conversion. Valley Chrisitan then scored 13 more points to end the contest.

With the win, the Eagles improve to 1-0 to start off the year as they will stay here at John Knapick next Friday night to take on a LaBrae team coming off a 40-0 over Lakeview. Eagles coach Andy Hake improves to 104-25 overall as a head coach. The Red Devils drop to 0-1 as Coach King will be looking for his first career victory next week on the road at Lowellville. The Rockets are coming off a 50-27 win over Columbiana.
