The Alexandra Valley Cubs Football Team Makes it to the State Championship Game

alexandria valley cubs football

ALEXANDRIA – The Alexandra Valley Cubs football team has made it to the state championship game in their first year of existence. They will play Moody on Friday night. The game will take place 6.7 miles north of the city, on U.S. Highway 411.

Leeds runs the ball

Against Alexandria Valley Cubs football last week, the Leeds Green Wave ran the ball all night long. The Valley Cubs did have success on the ground, but the team’s offense had no answer for Leeds’ running game. Leeds ended up with 375 yards of total offense, including 219 yards rushing. Leeds also had three picks on the night.

Alexandria started the game with good field position near midfield. But they had trouble scoring. The Valley Cubs were held to only 30 yards in the first half. After the first quarter, Leeds took control with a 10-point second quarter. Jackson Arthur kicked three field goals, and Ronnie Royal ran for 43 yards and a touchdown before the half. Alexandria ended up with 147 total yards.

Leeds took control with a big play in the second half. The Valley Cubs lost a fumble on a punt return, and a facemask penalty gave Leeds a 17-yard penalty on the next seven plays. With seven minutes left in the third quarter, Leeds had a chance to cut the lead in half. They tried to capitalize on the turnover going to air, but it was thwarted by a third-down interception.

Luckily, Leeds’ high octane aesthaetic rivals from the north and south have the greenlight to a degree and that’s good enough for me. The requisite three a days will likely see some stragglers and the likes joining the ranks. A well-coordinated senior class has the ability to play with the best of them all. Getting them all on the same page will be a tall order indeed. The following are just a few of the ilk: a.. er… (no, I’m not joking)…) Is there a need to get everyone on the same page? The most important lesson is to keep the troops in line. The best way to do this is to start a flurry of communication at the onset of each half.

Early takeaways led to a 29-0 halftime lead

Despite being the underdogs in a two-team battle of the sexes, the Alexandria Valley Cubs showed up on the home front. The aforementioned tidbits came in the form of a spry sag-free defense, led by the oh-so-brilliant triumvirate of quarterbacks. As a team, the cubs were well coached and well rested. Despite losing their quarterbacks in the first half, they threw in a handful of high-octane plays to keep the ball in their favor. The red hot Red Raiders nabbed a pair of rushing touchdowns, while Jayden Whitaker racked up the big one. Despite the fact that the Cubs have yet to score a touchdown in the last three quarters, the red hot offense is on the upswing and will be hard to contain as the season progresses.

Green Wave defense contributes to a 29-0 halftime lead

Keeping it in my pocket at all times was a tall order for the Green Wave but a few nifty tricks made the task a breeze. Probably the best one is the elusive n’s one, oh and a little bit of oomph in the air would be a close second. The other main line contender is the dreaded Blue Devils of Dixie. The best part is it’s all done by a harried squad. Some hiccups, but it’s all part of the prize. Despite a valiant effort in the trenches, the Blue Devils of Dixie are the best team in the conference and will be in contention for a state title come the end of the season. The best way to keep up with the ‘big dogs’ is to keep the line open and to play the game the right way.
