You can only play the schedule in front of you. That’s what the West Valley Eagles have done in this strange, shortened spring football season. Aside from an opening-week matchup with upper division foe, Shasta, the Eagles were slated to play a Northern Athletic League schedule that they’ve historically dominated over the past decade.

Well, when Yreka dropped out this week, the Eagles took it upon themselves to challenge another upper division foe in Foothill. West Valley’s 21-7 win over the Cougars not only showed it can lay claim to the title of top team in the county, it also earned the Eagles this week’s Clear View Auto Glass Team of the Week.

West Valley got a sterling performance from sophomore quarterback Noah Mason, who finished 9-of-9 passing for 85 yards. He was responsible for the Eagles’ first two touchdowns thanks to a 2-yard quarterback sneak and a 3-yard pass to senior Anthony Rogers on fourth-and-2 with 22 seconds left in the first half. Additionally, workhorse back Holden Gilbert finished with 120 yards rushing on 15 carries and set up West Valley’s first TD by taking a screen pass 37 yards.

Add in a defense led by Chris Whitney, Josh Aguilar and Hayden Boyes and the Eagles stymied a Foothill offense that came in averaging more than 25 points per night.
