Death Valley Football beats Twin Lakes 35 – 7

Death Valley picked up a win in their home opener and the first in a stretch of four games on Smith-Bibler Memorial Field. The 35-7 win over Twin Lakes improves the Vikings to 3-0 as the strong schedule continues.

The Wrecking Crew got things started early as Senior Landon Durkes nabbed a 34 yard Pick Six on the Indians third play of the game. Valley followed it up with the second touchdown on their first offensive drive from a 3 yard run by Senior Nate Parker. Overbey’s PAT made it 14-0 at the end of the 1st.

The 2nd quarter saw the passing game find the endzone when Senior Cody Eastgate connected with Senior Wade “Drago” Jones on a 53 yard pass followed by the Overbey PAT. After a quick three and out and a 53 yard punt return from Nate Parker, it took the Vikings only one play to find the endzone again, this time on a 22 yard pass from Eastgate to Senior Trent Marshall. Parker was not satisfied and took matters into his own hands as found the endzone on the next offensive drive off a 37 yard run in which the senior tailback used Madden like moves to juke his way to paydirt. Thanks to Overbey’s PAT the Vikings fullfilled the running clock requirements leading 35-0 at the half.

The 3rd and 4th quarters saw the younger Vikings get their time to shine and held their own despite giving up a Twin Lakes score late in the 4th.

Overall, Valley had 262 total rushing yards and 101 total passing yards. Nate Parker led the way on the ground with 123 yards on 15 rushes and 2 touchdowns. Trent Marshall tallied 41 yards on 6 carries. Brandon Stiles (33 yards), Grady Moriarty (31 yards), and Brock Derf (18 yards) each had 4 carries. Wade “Drago” Jones led the receiving core with a 53 yard TD catch. Marshall also had the 22 yard TD reception. Nate Parker found himself with a 20 yard catch as well.

Along with the Durkes pick six, the Wrecking Crew was in top form as they held the Indians to 144 total yards, 140 through the air and 4 on the ground. Valley also picked up two fumbles and held Twin Lakes to 2-12 on third down.

The Vikings move to 3-0 on the year and face another unfamilar foe as they welcome Tipton into Death Valley with kickoff set for 7:00 pm on Smith-Bibler Memorial Field.
