Mustangs celebrate new stadium with win

MURPHY -- Hidden Valley had to delay playing its first game at its new stadium for almost a month, but the Mustangs' patience was rewarded Friday night.

Tim Orr and Ryan Wilson came up with big performances as Hidden Valley remained undefeated in the Skyline Conference with a 26-0 victory over Phoenix.

Hidden Valley capitalized on six Phoenix turnovers to improve to 4-0 in the conference.

The victory sets up a showdown next Friday at Klamath Falls against Mazama, which is also unbeaten in the conference.

The Mustangs scored on their first three possessions, two on touchdowns by Orr, and picked off five Pirate passes, including three by Wilson.

Orr's first touchdown came on a 4-yard run that capped a 97-yard, nine-play drive with 4:45 remaining in the first quarter. Orr picked up 70 yards in the march.

The senior tailback gained 206 of the Mustangs' 292 yards on the ground.

North Valley took over on the Rogue River 14 when the Chieftains' punter's knee touched the ground fielding a bad snap to set up the Knights' final touchdown. Washburn scored from 1-yard out four plays later.

Rogue River erased a 10-0 deficit with 22 straight points. Quarterback Jarrod Garwood accounted for two touchdowns on runs of 6 and 2 yards.

After a scoreless first half, the Vikings took the second possession of the half and drove the ball 63 yards in 12 plays to score the first touchdown of the night.

Henley tried to counter by taking the kickoff and driving to a fourth-and-one at Mazama's 1-yard line, but the Vikings slammed the door on Juhl.

Two plays later Chad Hickel broke loose for a 99-yard TD run that gave the Vikings the momentum.

Hickel finished the night with 167 yards on 12 carries.
