|The Wolverines an early 7-0 lead on a 13-yd pass from
Cody Fisher to Ryan Carter just over 4 minutes into the game.
That culminated a long drive that relied heavily on the running
attack of Jackson and Stacy Harris.
Meanwhile, the defense held Glendale to just a single first down
on the first two Vaquero possessions.
Then about the only thing that went right for Glendale in the first
28 minutes of the game happened. The
Wolverines were forced to punt, but Glendale's Justin Wilkens slipped
through the line and blocked the kick.
He then picked up the ball at the 3 and carried it into the end
zone for the score. With
4:59 left in the quarter, the game was now tied, 7-7.
But when San Bernardino Valley got the ball back, they handed it to
Jackson and let him pound away at the Glendale defense.
The tactic worked; the Wolverines embarked on a drive that took
nearly 8 minutes. Jackson's
2-yard run capped it off and gave San Bernardino Valley a lead they
would hold the rest of the game.
At this point, Glendale inserted J.D. Ziska into the game at
quarterback in place of starter Adam Freeman.
But the results were the same.
After an exchange of punts, San Bernardino Valley drove for their
third touchdown of the day. Harris'
19-yard scoring run made it 21-7 Wolverines with just over 2 minutes
left in the half.
But then Glendale's offense finally came to life.
Three pass completions by Ziska got the ball to the Wolverine 43.
Then Willie Latham burst through the defense and into the end
zone. The 43-yard scoring run cut the deficit to 7 at the half, and
it looked like Glendale was right back in the game.
However, the Glendale offense showed little life after that run.
As the second half became a seemingly endless exchange of punts,
San Bernardino Valley took control of the game.
The Wolverines scored the only offensive touchdown of the second
half late in the third quarter on a 4-yard run by Jackson.
That was one of the few signs of offense after intermission as
each team managed just 4 first downs in the second half.
The next score came when Jonathan Hall broke through the Glendale
line and blocked a Vaquero punt early in the 4th quarter.
Marlon Roman picked up the ball at the 3 and took it in for the
score, making it 35-14.
The final touchdown came when Glendale's David Catchings fumbled
deep in Vaquero territory. Eric
Simpson of San Bernardino Valley grabbed the ball at the 7 and rumbled
into the end zone, making it 42-14 and completing the scoring for the
Jackson led all rushers with 111 yards on 27 carries.
Teammate Harris carried 11 times for 72 yards as the Wolverines
established a strong running attack.
Cody Fisher played most of the game at QB for San Bernardino
Valley and had an efficient game, going 6 of 9 for 74 yards, 1 TD and no
Williams caught the TD pass among his 3 catches for 45 yards.
For Glendale, Ziska completed 8 of 20 passes for 59 yards.
Latham rushed for 83 yards on 12 carries, but 43 of those came on
his touchdown run. Similarly, David Catchings had 55 yards on 13 carries, but 34
of those yards came on a single play.
Those were the only two Glendale plays of more than 11 yards on
San Bernardino Valley improved its record to 1-1 while Glendale fell to 0-2. The Vaqueros, who lost to #1-ranked Pasadena in the opening week, have been outscored 97-26 in the season's first two games.
