Valley finishes season strong with win over Rancho

Prep Sports Now

When basketball coaching fails, it's back to football talking

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer recount their experience coaching the Las Vegas All-Star team against Findlay Prep in basketball and move on to football talk in the 11th Prep Sports Now of the year.

Quentyn Jefferson rushed for three touchdowns, including a 31-yard scoring scamper to help Valley High end its season on a high note with a 52-7 victory over Rancho High on Friday.

Quarterback Kennedy Williams passed and ran for a score as the Vikings finished 2-7 and 1-4 in division play.

“It was a nice way to send it off the seniors,” Valley coach Marcus Sherman said. “Every kid got a chance to play. It was a good situation for us for once.”

The Vikings were up 28-0 at the half, and Sherman hopes ending the season with a victory translates into a better season in 2013.

“We’re still a young team,” Sherman said. “We have the right core of guys. Rancho has had some struggles too, but we needed a win just as badly as they did.”

Rancho wraps up its season winless (0-9, 0-5 division).
