My prediction for this game
Eastlake 35 Del Valle 24
If eastlake wins and canutillo wins till the season is over there might be a tie for district
Winner doesn’t take district it depends if dv beats them then they do but if eastlake wins and canutillo wins this next 3 games (Parkland, riverside, and Eastlake) there might be a tie for district
Contrary to what others have predicted, I predict this will be a low scoring game with both defenses stepping up.
My predicted final for this game
Eastlake 42 Del Valle 31
Del Valle by a touchdown or two.
DV's freshman and JV teams beat Eastlake. Varsity needs to finish the sweep.
I already saw this game. I traveled to the future. Del Valle won 35 - 7
13-7 Del Valle halftime
14-13 Eastlake 10 min left 4th
Del Valle with the Win!!
Final DV 25 Eastlake 21
Congrats to all 3 DV squads for sweeping the falcons!! Season is not over yet! Stay Focused!!
Garbage Defense for Eastlake at the end. They deserved to lose. You let DV score with seconds remaining twice. Once last year and again this year. Looking like Dallas giving Montez a drive at the end. Disappointment all around. This should've never happen. Defense Coordinator what where you calling at the end. Terrible, humbling lost by Eastlake.
Congratulations Del Valle!! Way to fight it out boys. Good luck the rest of the season
I wish Del Valle would have found a way to come back when they played Americas... Oh well, a victory in a crucial district game is better than a W to a non-district opponent.
This crow is delicious I was watching the game online and wow what a game congrats DV! I know we will have two great schools representing in the playoffs well.
Everyone is a critique and apparently you all have outstanding coaching skills!! These kids played and fought hard and for you to make the comment that they deserved to loss, just goes to show the type of person you are! I've read a few posts this morning regarding Eastlakes loss from DV fans that are disgraceful! I'm from the 79907 area and that's not who we are!
I disagree. This falcon loss was more on the offense than the defense. The defense gave the offense plenty of opportunities to win the game and they couldn't capitalize. The defense got a pick-6 for a 90 yard TD that put falcons up 21-13. Then the defense had another critical pick in the 4th qtr that our offense went 3 and out. You got to put up some points or at least keep the offensive possession more than a minute in a half.
The problem is the falcon offense has always been about big plays rather taking chunks at a time, which gets exposed when play solid defenses such as DV. Same thing happened with Chapin. And carries over to the playoffs, where defenses get better. In my opinion, falcons have the best two running backs in the district. Two tall receivers (#7 for the long ball and #19 who rarely gets targeted). #15, who is like a beasley who is definitely under utilized. Play selection needs improvement. Implementing other offensive options in addition to the fast paced spread would also help especially with those running backs. If they continue on same plan, they will be doomed again come playoffs.
I know there are still some games left to be played but DEL VALLE DISTRICT CHAMPS!!!!
Congratulations Del Valle
That game was a great HS game. Hats off to both teams. Much respect going around for each other from both groups. Hope both do well in play-offs.
