Despite their recent malady, the boys in blue have been in the black for the past two weeks, albeit for less than optimal conditions. They will be back in action in a few short weeks time. If they can pull off the trickiest of wins, they will be in the winner’s circle for at least a few games. They might have to play the big boys to get there, but they will likely be on the field for the remainder of the season. This is a big game for the squad, but it isn’t as bad as the last time around.

Scored 14 unanswered points in the second half of the Almond Bowl

Despite a 27-point second quarter deficit, Pleasant Valley High scored 14 unanswered points in the second half of the Almond Bowl against Chico High to take a 21-14 lead.

PV had a chance to score on a fourth-and-goal play from the Chico four-yard line, but Mycal Swaim was unable to complete the pass.

The foothill aces are not exactly a lock for a state championship, but they have one heck of a chance to go to the finals. The aces have a lot to be proud of, including a 9-3 record, a record-breaking winning streak, and a conference title. This season, the aces are slated to compete in Division 2, the Eastern Athletic League. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as the aces are a reload for a new coach, and the program has a solid core of talented players. The aces are also one of the most competitive programs in their conference, with a whopping 36-30 rebounding advantage. The aces also boast a slew of talented players, including quarterback Eric Ferguson and wide receiver Eric Grasso. Grasso, in particular, is one of the most dynamic players in the conference, and was rewarded with the aces’ most valuable player award.
