Leading rusher

Jake Yungeberg, Heights, busts through Marysville’s defense to score a touchdown during the first quarter of Friday’s football game in Homer Hanson Stadium. Yungeberg was the leading rusher in the game. He scored both of Heights’ touchdowns in the period on runs of 3 and 21 yards.

For Valley Heights, a 32-12 win at Marysville was a great way to start the season, though the Bulldogs felt they could have performed better.

“We wanted to schedule a bigger school early in the season to help us prepare at a higher level,” said VHHS coach Tony Trimble. “Marysville has a rich tradition so it was very rewarding to be able to leave there with the win.”
