Huskies hold onto first place

The Washington Huskies remained in firm control of first place of Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) Football as they topped Newark MemorialÕs Cougars 30-20 on Saturday, November 2. The Huskies are undefeated in MVAL play this year at 5-0, but it wasnÕt easy.
The Cougars fought hard to stay close, but Husky Quarterback Tylan Vinson used his speed and mobility in the first half to run up 173 of a total 189 yards for the game. His mobility came into play throughout the game but as the second half began with a 23-13 Huskies lead, this was game could have gone either way.
Newark Memorial drew within three points when Kenneth Beck broke free and, with some nifty running, scored on a 33-yard touchdown pass from Quarterback Reggie Miccoli late in the third quarter.
The seesaw battle finally cane to an end with 9:28 left in the game when Vinson put together an offensive drive that got Nate Woudstra in position to take the ball into the End Zone on a 1-yard drive to open a two-touchdown lead. The result set up a game of the year scenario in MVAL football when the Irvington Vikings meet the Huskies on Friday with the league championship on the line and an automatic spot in North Coast Section playoff action.
