Coming into Friday's nonleague football game in Hemet, Paloma Valley had outscored the opposition 98-19 in its first two victories. Host West Valley's margin of victory in its two wins was even more impressive, 131-0.
So did the fans get an offensive shootout in this one? Well, yes and no.
Paloma Valley piled up 439 yards rushing and 498 yards total offense and led 35-7 at halftime. West Valley? It scored first, but never again in a 70-7 Paloma Valley rout.
David Solis of the Wildcats rushed for 258 yards and five touchdowns, while Steven Mayo ran for 126 yards and three scores. Meanwhile, the Paloma Valley defense held West Valley to 125 yards total offense.
CJ Parker also ran for a touchdown for Paloma Valley. On defense, London Miller intercepted a Mike Cordova pass and returned it for a touchdown late in the game.
West Valley's only touchdown came on a 56-yard touchdown pass from Cordova to Lorenzo Terry in the opening minutes of the game. Once Paloma Valley turned the game into a rout, the fourth quarter was played with a running clock -- the second time in three games Paloma Valley has had that luxury because of lop-sided victories.
The Wildcats will try to improve to 4-0 next Friday when they play at Moreno Valley -- their third consecutive road game.
