Probably the most one-sided semifinal game I've ever seen even for 1A. VL did show some signs of life that were quickly shut down, such as recovering an onside kick and then promptly throwing an interception that was returned to around the 20 yard line
No real surprise here. Everyone knew this should have been the week that the two schools from the north (Mogollon and JC) should have played the two schools from the south (St. David and VU). It would have been nice to see that double header, instead of what we got!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least Bagdad made it a game for a half, but were not in it after that.
22 to to 17 into the 4th quarter is a game. You must not have seen the 2nd half. There was some good defensive football. Joe City made a couple more plays than Bagdad & had a couple of good breaks to help them win.

What you got was a team that put all they had into trying to compete with a VERY good Mogollon team. People do not realize that VL had many many injuries going into the playoffs to start. The defense was starting players that had hardly touched the field defensively all year. It is tough to stop a team let alone Mogollon when your down so many starters. Not saying VL would have won that game with them but it would not have been so lopsided.
Congrats to VL on a fine season! Good luck to Mogollon and JC next week!
