HAZELTON, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) "We haven't proven anything yet, if we beat Oakley, we haven't proven anything either," claims Valley senior Jason Hardy.
We don't need much motivation to play hard against Oakley, it's always a good game so," added Valley senior Zane Mussmann.
Oakley senior Travis Barnard added, "we've seen a little more physicality from them than we've seen from the past. They got some big boys up front, definitely going to be a physical game."
Oakley has taken the last two meetings between the Hornets and Vikings. Valley hasn't beat them since 2015, when the Vikings went 12-0 on the year, averaging 64 points a game.
Fast forward to this fall and No. 1 ranked Oakley is putting up 50 points a game, No. 2 ranked Valley 55.
Coach Ryon Jarvis said this team is about physicality now, rather than finesse and the Vikings showed it Friday.
Collin Tvrdy led the defense with five tackles, 10 assists, one sack and one tackle for a loss. Luis Cervantes also had two tackles and 10 assists.
Zack Gomez rushed for 171 yards and three touchdowns, while Jason Hardy threw for 210 yards and 3 TD's and Zane Mussman had 104 yards and two touchdowns on two receptions.
