The phrase “home sweet home” couldn’t have rang any truer for Virgin Valley (1-1) on Friday night.
A week after traveling to Cedar City, Utah, losing 41-7 and suffering the injury of their starting quarterback, the Bulldogs returned home to the sight of a Western (0-2) squad that hasn’t won a game since 2010.
Virgin Valley made sure it remained that way, destroying the Warriors 56-8.
As lopsided as the final score was, it could have been worse. Virgin Valley pulled all of its varsity players from the game once it was up 56-0 at halftime.
“Tonight, everything went our way,” said Virgin Valley coach Yori Lundvigson. “Last week, we couldn’t catch a break and this week we got them.”
The Bulldogs forced five turnovers, including a 44-yard fumble that senior Arden Bundy returned for a touchdown.
Offensively, Virgin Valley was led by senior running back Cody Jones, who finished a short night with 10 carries for 132 yards and three touchdowns.
The Bulldogs out-rushed the Warriors 286-46 yards.
Six players scored for Virgin Valley, despite the fact the team they only threw the ball one time for nine yards.
Next week, Virgin Valley heads back on the road to face a winless Del Sol (0-2) team.
