Big first half fuels Foothill win

Foothill used a big first half to take control of the game and cruised to a 56-6 home victory over Valley on Friday

Falcons quarterback Devon Mueller completed 9 of 10 passes — three for touchdowns — and racked up 164 yards. Aeden Bartolowitz caught three passes for 85 yards and scored twice. Eric Fisher added a 57-yard touchdown catch.

A 42-yard run from Justice Jackson just over a minute in started the scoring for Foothill (1-2), and Mueller found Bartolowitz less than three minutes later for a 40-yard score. Merritt also got in the end zone with a 17-yard run with just more than a minute left in the opening quarter.

Mueller found Fisher and Bartolowitz for scores of 57 and 15 yards, respectively, in the second quarter. Jackson added his second touchdown near the end of the half as the Falcons went into intermission up 40-0.

For Valley (0-3), Tyler Ford caught a quick pass near midfield, and his lateral to Jaesion Flores went for 47 yards and the only Vikings score.

Foothill added two final touchdowns in the fourth on a 1-yard plunge from Nick Gardner and 72-yard score from Kyle Lindley.
