Heritage, Paloma Valley Try to Remain Undefeated Tonight

Both of Menifee's undefeated high school football teams put their 3-0 records on the line tonight -- one at home and the other on the road.

Heritage High, a 37-16 winner over Beaumont in its 2012 home opener last week, plays host to Great Oak of Temecula tonight at 7. Great Oak is 2-1 this season and is averaging an impressive 423 yards per game. Jakob Certeza is averaging 155.3 yards per game for the Wolfpack.

Heritage's offense is led by running back Jamal Morrow, who is averaging 183 yards rushing per game. Last week against Beaumont, Morrow returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown.

Paloma Valley, which has outscored the opposition 178-26 in three games, plays its third consecutive road game tonight at 7 when the Wildcats visit Moreno Valley. The host Vikings are 2-0 after road wins at Fontana and Chaffey in their first two games.

Moreno Valley is averaging 451.5 yards and 34 points per game, compared to Paloma's 439.3 yards and 56 points per game.
