Game Preview: Rio Grand vs. Valley

Valley and Rio Grande will tangle this week in what could end up being a pretty good game. Valley has speed galore and Rio Grande has played against two pretty good teams. Come inside to see our preview and also our pick to win this game.

Rio Grande vs. Valley

Valley has gotten off to a 1-1 start to the season.  Beating Moriarty in week one 9-6 but they slipped up last week against Manzano 27-24.  Rio Grande has struggled since the beginning of the year starting out the season 0-2.  However, they have lost to two pretty good teams in Onate and also St. Pius.  They get another good team this week in Valley.


Much has been made of the playmakers that the Vikings have.  That talent showed up last week against Manzano scoring 24 points.  They didn't in week one but their defense was able to shut down the Moriarty running game and the Vikings won 9-6.  Look for Valley's offense to be pretty good again this week, they'll need to be because Rio Grande has a defense that is playing pretty good football right now.  I'll take Valley 24-14.
