Fountain Valley wants a win to head into a bye week possessing momentum. Trabuco Hills also is out to cap what would be a successful nonleague schedule with a victory.
On Friday, one team will reach its goal when they meet at 7 p.m. at Huntington Beach High's Cap Sheue Field. It's the final nonleague test for both squads. Trabuco Hills starts South Coast League play next week and Fountain Valley opens its Sunset League slate Oct. 14.
"It's a big game for both teams," Fountain Valley Coach John Shipp said. "We both want to end nonleague play on a winning note and this is a good game against a very good team and it's a good test to get us ready for Sunset League play."
Fountain Valley ran its win streak to two games and improved to 3-1 by winning, 34-30, last week at Downey. The Barons took a 14-3 first-quarter lead but the teams were tied at the half (17-17) and after three quarters (24-24). A six-yard touchdown run by junior quarterback Chris d'Entremont and a 42-yard field goal by Derek Huynen in the fourth quarter gave the Barons the lead for good.
