The Crescenta Valley High School football team is 2-0 after last week’s non-league road victory over Santa Fe High School, 27-7, and now it’ll look to go 3-0 when it takes travels to Montebello High School to take on the Oilers Friday at 7 p.m.
The Falcons won another easy game last week as they held the competition to seven points for the second straight game. Offensively, quarterback Cole Doyle was 14-of-24 with 205 yards passing. It was on the ground, though, where Doyle is doing most of his work. He rushed for four touchdowns, giving him seven total scores this year, and six of them are rushing. Against Montebello, he amassed 107 total rushing yards, the second straight game he’s gone over 10 yards. CV has 300 yards rushing through two games, and Doyle has 249 on them. Seven other rushers for CV have combined for 51 yards.
Vincent Parrot was the leading receiver for CV last week, with two receptions for 72 yards.
On the defensive side, CV has 13 sacks total, which is an impressive number. Lau Rocco, a junior, tallied three last week. Angel Ochoa recovered a fumble for the only turnover of the game.
Montebello is from the Almont League, and is 1-1 so far after a 38-20 win over Inglewood last week. The team lost its first game against Garfield 28-7.
Crescenta Valley has a bye week after Friday, and will resume play on Sept. 14 at Muir High School, the first game of the Pacific League season. CV hosts Pasadena High on Sept. 21 at Glendale’s Moyse Field.
The Sept. 14, Sept. 21 and the Sept. 28 games against Burroughs will be part of the Touchdown Against Cancer fundraiser. The Falcons have joined high schools across the country in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Fans can pledge for every touchdown CV scores in those games to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and help the 16,00 children diagnosed with cancer this year.
